Have you ever wanted to look exactly like The Joker?

Now, mind you, I don't mean every day - after all, that'd require a whole lot of facial disfigurement, and a prohibitively expensive amount of white face-paint.

Instead, I'm talking about a more cos-play-y approach to Joker-dom - one in which you could take on the appearance of the Clown Prince of Crime at a moments notice, before rapidly returning to the real world whenever the need to not look like a clinically-insane homicidal super-villain happened to arise.

Now, sure, there's always elaborate make-up, but that's time-consuming, and requires a whole lot of skill. What if, though, there was another way?

What if you could just simply print out an awesome, gruesome Joker mask?

Well, as it turns out:

You Now Totally Can Print Out an Awesome Joker Mask

Or, at least, designer Stefanos Anagnostopoulos was recently able to.

As he put it to

"I was thinking of making something out of the DC Comics and for me the only thing that comes to mind first is Batman Universe, but I always like the bad guys...I was looking at this comic my brother has, called ‘Batman Death of the Family’ and I love what they did with the Joker, so I gathered some pictures from the comic and the next day I started modeling the face."

Which, since the New 52 Joker he's talking about is absolutely terrifying to look at...

...meant creating something deeply, deeply troubling:

Which, as you can see, went pretty darned fantastically.

The best part, though?

(Other than the fact that it looks absolutely terrifying when on, of course)

Anagnostopoulos designed and sculpted the mask (using ZBrush) in just two days, before printing it off himself using a 3D printer.

Now, admittedly, that's probably a bit tricky for the rest of us to do ourselves, but even so - HOLY CRAP THAT IS COOL.

Anyone else want one way, way too much right now?
