It's fair to say the man knows how to paint a face.

He decided to go all out this Halloween and did special effects make up for his entire family. They each went as a different version of The Joker and the results were incredible! He was kind enough to post his finished masterpieces on Twitter, see below.

He pulled out all the stops with his own make-up pictured above next to his harlequin Joker wife .

Believe it or not, this is one of his daughters Veronica! She is transformed into the classic Joker played to perfection by Jack Nicholson in Batman (1989) with a nice nod to Killing Joke.

The transformation pictured above is his second daughter! She is the iconic Joker famously played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight (2008).

And here we have the perfect 'Joker' family portrait contrasted with a rather normal family picture by comparison.

Naturally the 'Dad of the Year' award goes to Rick Baker for turning his two seemingly pretty daughters into badass Joker villains for Halloween.
