No matter how you dress up the Joker, he’s always scary. The Batman villain stands out to me because besides his spooky countenance, he’s also disturbing. This medieval armor version of the character adds a touch of regal but can’t take away the creepiness. Prince Armory pieced the costume together from engraved and dyed leather. It began as several sketches and then came paper patterns. Each paper piece was carefully traced onto leather, then all the lines and embellishments were added to the segments, and eventually the segments were put together, articulating where needed.
Once it was assembled, the pieces were dyed. The level of details packed into each piece of the armor are mind-blowing. Though Prince Armory doesn’t list specific procedures, they share enough in progress photos over at Facebook to give you plenty of ideas and inspiration.
