Nightmare Fuel

This impressive Joker cosplay from DC Comics' New 52 series "Death of the Family" was my favorite during this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

I called out to Joker while he was arrogantly strutting along the main street and was acknowledged with a gritty and annoyed "WHAT?!" as he looked around to see who dared to bother the King of Crazy. It made it that much more fun that he stayed in character while I asked to take his photo.

The amazing special effects makeup was done by Los Angeles based Cinema Makeup School. For those of you that aren't familiar with the latest iteration of Joker, he makes his return to the Batman comics by having his face carefully removed, and then proceeds to wear it as a mask as he torments Batman and his colleagues.

Sweet dreams, little ones!
