    So as I wait for my bust to get finished I've been putting together just about everything else. Next step from here will be the dying the shirt to the darker blue color and dying vest a darker green (and hoping it shrinks in the process). And dirtying up his shoes as well.

    Shirt and Vest: Utopia
    Jacket: Baron coats
    Gloves, Tie, and Pants: Magnoli Clothiers

    I'm digging it so far, mate! Looking forward to seeing it all together with the make-up!

    Joker bust is now painted and it came out great! Thanks to Hamedl Fx for the paint job. Next step is the hair application

    Added hair to the bust. Should be able to get the bust mounted this week. I've snipped off half inch length since these pics

    A quick mock up after his haircut to check his hair length. I'm happy with it

    Basically finished. Colored and cut his hair a little more. Just waiting on his left hand which will be holding the bozo mask. I have the chain but no loops on the pants so gotta figure out a way to attach that

    Where did you find shoes? I've been working on an outfit myself.

    They are not exact. They're Calvin Klein shoes I weathered with black and brown washes

    Looking fantastic!!! I built myself a lifesize Joker as well and I struggled to find anything accurate that didn't cost $400 plus. Your Calvin Klein's look close.

    Thanks man, I'm in the process of redoing the whole hair. It bothered me how blonde it turned out. Alot of it is the bright lighting too, looks better with dimmer lights. Yeah everything was pretty expensive unfortunately

    Thanks man. Here's the website: www.hairstopandshop.com, and the wig is Motown Tress Front Lace LPD-WIT. I got the all blonde one, dyed the roots dark brown and the rest lime green. They're long so you gotta play hair stylist after its applied. What I did was bought 2 wigs, one for the head and one to cut strands off of for the hairline to give it a more realistic look

    Thanks heaps mate. The hairline looks fantastic. What did you use to stick down the extra hair you put along the hairline?

    Super glue gel that dries clear. If you use super glue make sure its gel, the regular kind may drip down the face on ya. And I did it in small groups of strands. Time consuming but worth it in the end
