Joker Costume Analysis – Summary


It seems like everyone knows (or think they know) what the Joker looked like in Tim Burton’s Batman, but who’d have thought that in actuality, he wore so many different costumes and ensemble combinations?!?!?

The final tally, in case you’re curious, is:

  • 2 neck ties (3 including Jack Napier)
  • 4 Victorian-ish ties
  • 2-3 bow ties
  • 3 shirts (4 including Jack Napier)
  • 3 handkerchiefs (4 including Jack Napier)
  • 4 hats (5 including Jack Napier)
  • Jack Napier’s three-piece suit
  • Smoking jacket
  • Dressing gown
  • 2 pairs of trousers
  • 2 waistcoats
  • 2 tailcoats
  • Overcoat
  • Gloves
  • Boots

  1. I really enjoyed your breakdown and research of the costume. I wish I had seen this before getting all of my pieces completed, as I made some minor mistakes. I'm also guessing that based on the name, you created the patterns on SpoonFlower to print. Thanks for that!
