Mickey Rourke dresses up as strange white possible Joker


While I enjoy celebrity Halloween costumes, I’m more than a little confused by Mickey Rourke’s. He’s dressed as a dude… in an orange vest… and a white suit… and a white face. Ahhh! No really, it is sort of scary. But more like, “Hey, Mickey Rourke might be really truly crazy and not just funny crazy” sort of way. Like he might actually go after you and try to eat your soul or something. Soul eating is my greatest concern on Halloween.

Celebitchy thinks he’s dressed as a/the Joker, and I guess I could see that. Some people are sort of lazy about their costumes and just pull out the first few strange things they find in their closet. In terms of wardrobe, Mickey could just as easily be wearing a sweat suit for all the sense it makes. It’s the white face that’s freaky.

Oh my gosh, no. Better explanation: I just looked at the pictures more closely. I’d thought Mickey was wearing a white turtleneck under his vest, but it appears that he painted his chest white too. And there are streaks of white in his hair, though I’m betting those are accidental. There are some black marks under his eyes (you have to look closely through the sunglasses) and it appears that he’s put black lipstick on, some of which has rubbed off onto his teeth a bit. So… so he’s a white joker ghost man. With an orange twist. Or maybe an epically sad harlequin?

Really, I don’t know where else to go with this. It’s strange. But Mickey looks happy. And oddly pleased with his costume. I’d really appreciate a specific explanation – and I’d also like to know what he was up to that caused the makeup to get rubbed off his nose – and also how the white aviator shades play into it. But I suppose the greatest mysteries are beyond that. I just can’t help but wonder if they’re beyond Mickey too.

    Zombie Ghost. Not all costumes have a them, some are just fun creations. Mickey, though, well, there might be a theme….

  3. Firestarter says:

    He is Dita Von Tesse.

    are we sure this a costume?  maybe he just skipped his spray tan this week.

  5. snowball says:

    He looks like either Marilyn Manson or the lead singer of Dead or Alive (Pete something or other).

    I can’t decide if this is an improvement over his normal look or not.

    Hey, lighten up folks. It’s Halloween and he’s just having some fun. I know he’s bizarre but I just love Mickey.

    Hold on folks, he could play the Joker in a future Batman. He’s nuts and controversial.

  13. Jen says:

    Actually, that’s mime makeup. He’s got it pretty accurate, too, right down to the black on the lips. Just picture him wearing a striped turtleneck and a beret and you’ve got it.
