This Harley Quinn cosplay came to us via Ginger Armadillo Costumes, who says she wanted to keep the feel of Harley’s original jester costume with a touch of realism. I’d say she managed that beautifully. Here’s how she put the look together:
I made Harley’s corset from some scrap yardage of a beautiful red and black brocade. With red ribbon channels and black lace trim, it’s fully steel-boned (and lined with flannel for extra comfy!) Harley’s pants and jacket are both modified thrift store purchases. My mask is Worbla and carbon-fiber-patterned automotive vinyl. My Harley wig began as an Arda Chibi. I cut out about 1/3 of the volume, hand-colored the roots, severely cut the bangs, and restyled the pigtails. A painted Nerf gun serves as my pistol. Lastly, I repainted a pair of Harley Davidson boots found at my local thrift store (because they were perfect, but also for the pun!)
