How to Dress Like The Protagonist Joker in Persona 5
Joker is well-known for his frizzy black hair which hangs down in pieces just over his eyes, going down past his ears and behind his head.
To redo this look for your costume, you can style and dye your own hair black, or you can wear a black cosplay wig. Use a light hairspray to give your hair more volume for your costume.
Joker has a pallid complexion and wears a white pointed mask with black, sharp eye accents over his nose. You can use a light dusting of white face makeup powder to get a similar look.
You will also need to get the black mask that looks similar to an operatic style mask.
Joker also has dark gray eyes beneath his mask. You can recreate this look with colored contact lenses, or you can skip this step if you’re in a hurry.
Joker wears an ankle-length black trench coat over a high-necked black waistcoat and baggy black dress pants.
His coat has wide black sleeve cuffs, and his outfit in general is dotted with gold button accents on the sleeves and waistcoat, which create a somewhat more elegant look for this cunning trickster character.
Joker wears bright red gloves over his hands. You can find red gloves from most retail websites and accessories shops.
He also wears high-heeled brownish-black boots with pointed toes on his feet.
Joker is also often depicted holding a black and silver pointed dagger with a circular hole in the top of the handle, which matches the color scheme of his mask. For this item, use the replica from Amazon provided in this guide, or use craft supplies to make a dagger of your own.
If you can’t find a dagger, search for a gray pistol gun instead, another weapon he is sometimes seen with.
