Peacemaker from The Suicide Squad

Christopher Smith (played by John Cena), better known by his moniker Peacemaker, is a violent extremist who believes no amount of carnage is too much if it achieves peace.  In The Suicide Squad movie, Peacemaker works with other members of Task Force X including Polka-Dot Man, Bloodsport, and Ratcatcher 2 to stop the giant extraterrestrial Starro the Conquerer.  Peacemaker’s costume is reminiscent of classic super heroes, with a red, white and blue color palette and a silver mask.  Finding his exact shirt can be difficult, so don’t be afraid to use a plain red t-shirt as a cost effective stand-in.

Ratcatcher 2 from The Suicide Squad

Cleo Cazo (portrayed by Daniela Melchior) is the daughter of the villain Ratcatcher who goes by the name Ratcatcher 2 in The Suicide Squad film.  Ratcatcher 2 can train rodents easily, as well as control their minds on a large scale.  As a member of Team X, Ratcatcher 2 works alongside Bloodsport, Peacemaker, and Polka-Dot Man to stop Starro the Conquerer from destroying Corto Maltese.  Ratcatcher 2’s costume includes a long, dark jacket with hood, fingerless gloves, and a mask that helps her filter out the overwhelming smells found in the sewers.

Polka-Dot Man from The Suicide Squad

Polka-Dot Man from The Suicide Squad

Abner Krill (played by David Dastmalchian), better known by the name Polka-Dot Man, is a metahuman and a member of Task Force X in the movie The Suicide Squad.  Polka-Dot Man is able to create weapons out of multi-colored dots grown from his body as the result of an interdimensional virus.  Along with Peacemaker, Ratcatcher 2, and Bloodsport, Polka-Dot Man seeks to stop Starro the Conqueror.  Polka-Dot Man’s costume is very reminiscent of a vintage pilot, including googles and a skull cap.  To recreate his look, you’ll want to set aside some time to paint polka dots onto a light grey jumpsuit.  It can be difficult to find a grey cap, but a little grey paint can help soften the darker colors more commonly available.

Harley Quinn in The Suicide Squad

Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) returns for 2021’s The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn. A former psychiatrist turned crazed vigilante, Harley survives the attack on the original squad and finds herself joining a new team. In contrast to the first iteration, Harley is no longer romantically involved with the Joker. As oppose to previous films, Harley sticks to her classic red and black color palette, with inspirations from the Batman: Arkham City video game. Her second outfit is shown her, featuring a ruffled dress to match her playful, feminine aesthetic.
