How to make a Harley Quinn Costume
Harley’s top is going to be the main thing that tells people who you are dressing up as, so to nail this, will make your outfit epic. You will need a few tools to help make your top look just like Miss Quinn’s:
The first thing to do is to get your top and run it quickly under the fawcett, don’t soak it, it just needs to be damp. Next you need to mix the dye into a bowl which is big enough to dip your tshirt in. Harley’s tee has red across the shoulders, so you only need to dip your top in this far; you may have to peg it up somehow to leave it there for long enough for the dye to take. (Follow the instructions your chosen dye gives you.) Don’t worry if the red colour bleeds slightly into the white, as this will look just like the real deal!
Once your top is dyed, get your Sharpies out and start scribbling! It doesn’t matter if you’re a talented artist or if you can just about draw a stickman; write ‘Daddy’s Lil Monster’ just under your dyed area, in black Sharpie. Then, using the red marker, draw the red bands around the ends of the sleeves. While you have your pens out, you might as well draw black stripes on your white baseball boots too.
The next thing you need to do is get chopping! If you’ve seen Suicide Squad, you’ll have noticed Harley’s tee has little holes and rips in it, so go to town on your top; you could even chop it into a cropped top if you like.
Piece all of your items together and abracadabra, you look just like Harley!!!
As we said, if DIY isn’t your thing, or you just don’t have time, then you can get some great full Harley Quinn costumes online. You can even get her utterly amazing, stunning, awesome boots! Included in this online offering are some of Harley’s more classic looks; with her Arkham City, sexy look with skin tight clothes in black and red, and her comic book style, with her traditional jester hat and eye mask.
To finish any of the looks you go for; DIY or readymade, make sure you get the makeup look ‘on fleek’ with some pale foundation and bright red lipstick.
