The Condiment King from Batman The Animated Series

Buddy Standler (voiced by Stuart Pankin) was a simple comedian just trying to make a name for himself. Unfortunately for Buddy, making his mark landed him on Joker’s bad side. A little bit of mind control later and Buddy made his debut as the Condiment King. To no-one’s surprise, condiments couldn’t quite stand up to the Bat and Buddy’s villain run ended almost as soon as it began, leaving Buddy hospitalized.

Like most comic and cartoon characters, the Condiment King’s costume is a bit hard to replicate without making it from scratch. But you can get close with some pre-made pieces and just a little DIY. White briefs, gloves, and boots are ready to go, as is a teal bodysuit and a pair of black lens sunglasses. You can replicate his condiment guns with red and yellow squirt guns while a silver backpack can replaces the tanks on his back until you can make your own. And, as an added bonus, the bag can hold your convention supplies. Another substitution is a green beanie for his pickle hat until, again, one can be made.

The DIY comes into play with the insignia on his chest. A pack of felt offers all the necessary colors while fabric fusion makes it possible to glue the decal to the bodysuit. Just be sure the chest of the suit is stretched to roughly its worn size before you glue the decal on so that it doesn’t affect the fit of the costume.

Batman from Batman: The Animated Series

There are more iterations of Batman than most people can count. And each version has a flair all his own. InĀ Batman: The Animated Series, Kevin Conroy voices a Batman steeped in neo-noir style. And it has made this version of the caped crusader a favorite among long-time and new fans alike.

This version of Batman is fairly old-school when it comes to his costume. A grey body suit and soft touch fabric paint will give you the base layer of his costume as well as the perfect insignia, since the style of his insignia is often the most specific change. On top of that you’ll want a pair of black bike shorts and the yellow utility belt. Bike shorts will give a little more coverage than the actual costume but they might also be more comfortable!

Add on some gloves, boots, a cowl, and a cape, and you’ve finished out the costume!

There is one small note on the cape: It is black on the outside and blue on the inside. You can always skip this detail but if you’re determined to get the same look, you have two options. One is to order the same cape in both black and blue, then cut the hems into points and glue them together on all sides using fabric glue until they are one piece. The other option is order a few extra bottles of the blue fabric paint and paint the inside of your cape. Both options will change how the cape moves and how you’ll have to clean it. So keep these factors in mind when choosing how you alter it!

Joker from Batman: The Animated Series

Joker from Batman: The Animated Series

In Batman: The Animated Series, Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill) is the clown prince of crime and the archnemesis of Batman. Of all the incarnations of The Joker, many fans consider Hamill’s voice acting to be the best and truest portrayal.

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.

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.
