I started getting into cosplay by basically being too impatient to wait for Halloween as an excuse to dress up. I started with the Joker which was slowly put together with bits i found in charity shops (other than the coat which came from the internet) it spent almost 3 years being finished before i had an excuse to wear it out.
The Rorschach costume came about when i saw the coat on sale and realised i could simply use the trousers and gloves from the joker costume and i would be only a mask, scarf and cheap trilby away from finishing it. It was never worn to a party/convention because although it looked fantastic it left me almost blind.
The Scarecrow costume was originally going to be the Arkham costume. The hood, trousers, belt straps and everything was finished and looked great but he mask i made for it left a lot to be desired so i made one more akin to the one used in Batman Begins.
