At the very beginning of the movie when the Joker is standing on the curb waiting to be picked up by the car, we see his mask. Then, when he gets into the car, he puts his mask on. Throughout the entire bank scene, he has his mask on, but when he takes his mask off to show the guy his face, we see his white face talking to the man.
So my question is, was the joker just standing on the sidewalk in BRIGHT DAYLIGHT with his crooked, cracked smile, and white face, where anyone who walked by him or anyone driving by him could see that he was standing on the side walk? Or did he put on make up to cover up his white face like he did during the parade?
My guess is that he put make up on to look somewhat normal, besides the scars like in the parade, but once he got into the van, just wiped his face and make up off.
What are other people's thoughts on this?
