Harley Quinn

Birds of Prey Outfit

Batman, DC Comics

Harley Quinn is one of the most popular cosplays in the world. At conventions, people make a game out of counting how many Harley Quinns they see. For the longest time, I always told myself I would never cosplay her. I never really liked the character and her ‘quirky’ obsession with the Joker.

And then… and then Birds of Prey came out. And I fell inĀ love with her character arc, and how badass she was, and all her costume choices throughout the movie. It was official – I was a Harley Quinn fan. I finally understood what everyone else saw in her.

I was very fortunate that The Cosplay Company offered to sponsor my Harley Quinn cosplay – they provided the full outfit, in exchange for a handful of photoshoots. The photos you see above were all shot to help provide them with content for their website. And truthfully, I was very impressed with the quality of the costume they provided me.

The shorts especially were great – just the right size, and the stripe/star details were sharp and vivid. The suspenders are very durable, and the shirt has been so comfortable I started just wearing it normally even when I’m not in cosplay!

I did have to make a few things to complete the look – I styled the wig from a base “Harley” wig I found on Amazon. And the gloves are made completely from scratch, using a soft pleather from Cosplay Fabrics, and adding paint handprints to them.

I never thought I would cosplay Harley Quinn, but this costume (and the scene from the movie where she wears it) made me absolutely fall in love with her.
