Halloween will be here before you know it and that means that the stores are already crammed with decorations and costumes. If you are working on your creepy yard decoration plans, you might want to include this DC Joker Ground Breaker.
Of all the superhero films that have been made over the years, one of my favorites is The Dark Knight. I loved the performance Heath Ledger turned in as Joker in the film. He took the character from earlier cartoonish portrayals into a truly creepy bad guy that was more compelling than the hero of the film.
I never saw Harley Quinn in the Batman cartoons that I watched growing up. At least not that I recall. These days, she gets plenty of attention in the Batman universe. I get the impression that she and The Joker have something going on sort of like Batman and Catwoman.
Japanese toymaker Kitan Club made some of the creepiest keychains I’ve ever seen. It’s a set of figurines based on Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight. The set sees the villain in various poses, referencing different scenes from the movie.

Black Milk Clothing’s latest geeky collection features the Dark Knight and his enemies. You’ll see Bats, Joker, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn draped all over a variety of clothing. No Black Mask on Black Milk? I guess he’s not popular enough.
Prince Armory has been making stuff for cosplayers, armor and weapon collectors since 2007. They have all kinds of detailed custom armor creations. Their newest design looks like it comes straight from the pages of a DC Elseworlds comic book.
Welcome to Mr. J’s carnival. You must be 1.5″ tall to ride. That’s because this is a LEGO diorama featuring the Clown Prince of Crime’s headquarters of sorts. Made by Paul “Brickbaron” Etherington, it contains lots of moving parts and depicts Batman and other characters in dire straits against Joker and other villains.
Etsy shop Haute Mess makes Grillin Villains, a line of handmade aprons that are based on the costumes of famous supervillains. Haute Mess gleefully proclaims, “If you gotta cook and clean why not look evil doing so?!”
Comic books are cool. I love Batman, The Flash and all the rest, but personally I draw the line at Superhero undies. But if you want a case of comic book crotch, you’ll be happy to know that Diesel has unveiled a line of superhero themed boxer briefs.
I”m sure that some of you would rather look at the actual posters of these geeky movies, but for me 25-year old Brandon Schaefer’s style actually calls out to geeks in that the things his art withholds are known only to those who have actually watched the movies they represent.
No, it’s not Christian Bale rapping, thank god. It’s the work of the satirical and parodistic folks at the Key of Awesome, and they do have valid questions. Plus the characters’ voices were spot on.
Still, some of you may be tempted to ask: Plot holes?
Inject a dose of madness to your poker nights with the limited edition Joker poker set. Everything that you’ll find in a standard poker set is here, except that almost everything’s been defaced Joker-style, including the aluminum carrying case.
Crochet connoisseur Rin aka deadcraft aka oddgumi makes wonderful dolls of personalities both fictional and real, as long as they’re awesome. I am confident that a Barney Stinson doll is in the works. Let’s look at some her creations:
Now that’s something you don’t see everyday.
Some folks, when they make something as great looking as this custom Xbox 360 console, they give you the skinny. The rundown, if you will. A list of specs. A retelling of the effort, the hours that went into their craftsmanship.
