Lot # 48 - Live Auction 2017 - The Joker's (Jack Nicholson) Costume

Stock #72682

The Joker's (Jack Nicholson) costume from Tim Burton's superhero film Batman. This complete costume comprises components from various scenes throughout the film, including Joker's meeting with the mobsters after killing Carl Grissom (Jack Palance), and the Gotham street parade.

Created by Academy Award®-nominated costume designer Bob Ringwood, the Joker's costumes were designed to express the mindset of the character. The Joker's mentality is reflected through colour; his costumes become increasingly vibrant and outrageous as he descends further into madness throughout the film.

The costume consists of a three-piece suit, shirt, gloves, necktie and shoes. The purple double-breasted suit is made of wool, with an orange and green pinstripe pattern and purple buttons running down the front of the waistcoat and jacket. The jacket is fully lined with brown satin, and the trousers feature turn-ups on the hem. The vibrant orange shirt is made of satin material. The necktie [DJ5] is labelled 'TM Lewin and Sons' and is made of purple cotton, with a white and blue diamond pattern throughout. The pale purple suede gloves complement the matching suede detail on the pointed, purple leather Oxford shoes, which are marked as size 10.5.

The costume is displayed on a custom-made mannequin featuring Nicholson's likeness, with the Joker's signature green hair and maniacal grin. Dimensions: 178 cm x 65 cm x 50 cm (70" x 25 1/2" x 19 3/4")
