Rick Baker’s DC Comics Halloween

Make-up legend Rick Baker absolutely owns Halloween this year — especially if you’re a fan of DC Comics cosplay. The Academy-award winning artist tweeted three amazing works today. First, helping his daughter Veronica Baker, who works at DC as an executive assistant in digital marketing, with her costume for the day.

Then later this afternoon, Baker tweeted out the following:

Batman writer Scott Snyder tweeted confirmation that Baker had indeed shown up at the DC Comics Halloween party dressed as co-creator Greg Capullo’s take on The Joker:

Happy Halloween!
