Batman from Harley Quinn

Batman from Harley Quinn

There are so many Batman variations that it can be a little hard to keep up with. But this version (voiced by Diedrich Bader) is unique in both his snark and the way he handles Harley Quinn. He’d have to be. This Harley isn’t your usual Harley. And when the lines between good guy and bad guy get blurred, things are bound to get interesting!

Batman’s costume in the show is pretty straightforward. He has a black cowl and a black cape that he wears over a grey body suit with the bat insignia on the chest. Because the insignia is a little different from most you can buy pre-made, you’re better off painting it on with black fabric paint. A yellow belt, black gloves, and black boots round out the look. You can add some bat-themed weapons and you’ll be ready to scour the streets of Gotham for evildoers!

Unlike other Green Lanterns, his powers don’t come from the Guardians of the Universe, but from a magical entity called the Starheart.

Barbara Minerva / Cheetah from Wonder Woman 1984

In the Wonder Woman 1984 movie, Barbara Minerva (played by Kristen Wiig) is an insecure scientist who befriends Diana.  After being exposed to a mystical force, Barbara eventually transforms into Cheetah, arch enemy of Wonder Woman.  Barbara’s look evolves almost as much as the character.  From her frumpy 80s style at the outset of the film, to the sexy animal prints she wears later, there is a lot of room to have fun with the era.  Barbara’s fully evolved Cheetah form looks like a humanoid cat, so some adaptations to a standard leopard or cheetah Halloween costume can make it look more intimidating and better suited to the character.
