4. Red Suit Joker

You can consider the red suit joker as the Joker’s stylish twin. If you feel you can’t pull off the look of a purple suit with a yellow shirt, you can consider getting the red suit Joker. While red is still a bold color, it is still a more common color to wear compared to purple.

You can cut down on the green wig also and just focus on your Joker makeup. You still need to do the makeup as closely as possible to the real Joker. By doing so, people still can see where you got the inspiration for your outfit.
