The Dark Knight Batman and Joker Halloween Costume Ideas

Despite the fact that the Dark Knight Batman movie was released in 2008, there’s no doubt that it’s still one of the hottest Halloween costume themes of 2010. Batman Halloween costumes and, more specifically, the Joker costumes keep popping up year after year!

The Joker Costume

Thanks to Heath Ledger’s haunting portrayal of the character, the Joker costume is one of the hottest Halloween costumes to date. The Dark Knight put a new twist on the Joker character, with his smudged makeup, disturbing scars and psychotic mannerisms. All the more fun for Halloween!

To get the Joker look you’ll first need to work on your outfit. The Joker sports an interesting, long purple coat (full of concealed weapons) a vest, shirt and tie, with pin-striped pants. Kind of a “crazed businessman” theme. All of this would be nothing without the distinctive Joker makeup. The officially licensed costumes come in three different types: the standard and deluxe (available for both adults and children), and the heritage (adults only).

Of course it’s perfectly possible to create the Joker look without a Joker costume. Simply work hard on your makeup. Get hold of some white face paint, including some fake scars for the extended smile, some red for the lips and scars, and lots of dark around the eyes.

Batman Halloween Costumes

Batman is one hero that crops up at Halloween year after year. The Batman in the Dark Knight faced some unique challenges, but his suit was as good as ever and the officially licensed costumes are built to match. Perfect if you’re going with a friend and want to play arch rivals for the night!

Top standard officially licensed Batman Halloween costumes are probably some of the most impressive you’ll see at Halloween, and are guaranteed to turn heads – but they don’t come cheap. The Grand Heritage option doesn’t just include the black bodysuit and cape, but also authentic armor pieces, boot covers, the utility belt, gauntlet and realistic Batman mask. It’s only available for adults.

If you want cheaper options for Batman Halloween costumes then there’s still plenty available. You can either opt for the standard costume, including a printed body suit designed to look like Batman’s armor, or the deluxe version, which adds foam muscles for a more realistic effect. Both are available for adults and children.

There are also a number of accessories sold separately, including the mask, grappling hook, gloves and gauntlets.

Any Batman theme is going to be hot this year, and you might find a few people with the same costume. Just make yours is authentic as you can get and you’ll stand out in the crowd!
