Harley Quinn from Birds of Prey

Harley Quinn aka Harleen Quinzel (played by Margot Robbie) is one of the most fascinating women the DC universe. She started as a love interest and henchwoman to the Joker and later gained her independence. When and how varies from comic run to comic run or show to show. But every time she finds her way to independence and the results are wild, a little dangerous, and always fun. Birds of Prey is the newest addition to Harley’s canon exploits and it is set to be a wild ride. She fully embraces her own unique style in this film. That means a crazy combination of crushed velvet with caution tape and some star-spangled shorts for good measure. Nothing quite matches but with Harley’s wild nature just brings it all together anyway!

Harleen Quinzel

Harleen Quinzel

Harley Quinn was introduced as Harleen Quinzel, a psychiatrist in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series. Since 1999, she has become a DC favorite. If you’re tired of the usual Harley cosplay tutorials such as the jester suit, Arkham series, or the Suicide Squad film, look no further.

Aside from most of the screen time Harley spent in the two ’90s Batman series’ parading around in her jester suit, she was known to dress quite feminine and formal. One of the looks aside from the usual was her outfit worn while shopping out on the town or when out with Ivy.

To pull off the simple look, you’ll need: a white collared blouse or button down shirt (tied into a sexy knot), bright red jean shorts with a simple black belt, white lace-up go-go rollerblade boots, and hair pulled into high pigtails. If you want to add accessories, get a white leather purse and some signature red lipstick.

Bombshell Harley Quinn

DC Bombshells is an alternate reality where female superheroes guard the homefront during WWII. Modeled after the classic pinups of the 1940’s, Harley Quinn is a bomber pilot.

Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad

In Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn is the same crazed psychiatrist turned supervillain, but Margot Robbie’s is different from the usual take on Harleen Quinzel. One that’s less court jester and more of a deranged, bloodthirsty baseball player. To get the face makeup just right, follow this Harley Quinn makeup tutorial.

Harley Quinn

Poor Dr. Harleen Quinzel, sometimes even psychiatrists break. After falling for The Joker and changing her name to Harley Quinn, the peppy sidekick became a loyal follower to the psychotic villain. When she’s not swooning over the Joker, you can find Harley hanging with best gal pal Poison Ivy or coming up with some clever disguise.
