I needed a quick costume for a party I went to last Saturday, so I decided to take advantage of my green hair and dress up as the Joker. More Cesar Romero or Jack Nicholson-Joker than Heath Ledger- Joker, but Joker nonetheless. I didn't want to spend a lot of time or money on the costume, so I budgeted $10 for the whole look.
I lucked out and found a purple knit dress, a green tee, and an orange turtleneck at my local Goodwill hours before the party. I cut the dress into a jacket and a skirt and tightened the skirt to a pencil fit. For the "undershirt," I cut a vest shape from the green tee and glued it onto the orange turtleneck, and embellished the front with some extra gold metal chain I had lying around. The flower was a quick glue job as well made with extra yellow and orange felt.
For the makeup, I used some BB cream I had that has a really high SPF. I layered it on 3-4 times before setting it with some white eyeshadow that I never use. I used green eyeshadow for my eyebrows, greys/black smokey eyes, and extended a my lips a bit to exaggerate the smile.
Easy peasy, no? Are you dressing up for Halloween?
