Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Harley Quinn from Batman: Arkham City
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Again, as soon as I saw the design I knew it had to be mine!
I enjoyed the more tame design and back to the classic black and red look for Harley in Arkham City.
The fabrics I used for the outfit were all very high end, expensive pleather fabrics I obtined from a store in Toronto called Trendy fabrics. The pleather was semi thick and semi stretch.
I made the corset with the same method I used for the Asylum version. The industrial zip ties as boning ans lots of rivets and eyelets to lace the corset up. I lined the corset with a deep red cotton.
The top I made from 2 old T- shirts I had laying around. I frankenstein'd them together and altered it to fit the right way. I also dyed the top in a red/brown dye bath to get the red on the top to be a bit darker.
The pants I used a Simplicity pattern for low rise pants and modified the heck out of them to make them fit the ways her's appears in the game. I also added every seamline into them that she has. The diamonds are appliqued on. The brown thing on the front of the pants was a bit of a pain but it's topstitched onto them.
The boot covers are again the most difficult part of this monster.
The baseball bat is a toy one from Toys'R Us. I wrapped red and white duct tape around it. I plan on painting it for the second time around (I litterly made the bat the day before the con >
- Personal Thoughts:
- Because she is my fav comic character of all time it only makes sense for me to make pretty much every version of her outfit. The game was fantastic an dwas enough to convince me to make this version of Harley. Jay wanted to make Arkham City Robin and I thought Harley would be a good additon to walk around with him XD
- Styling Notes
- I used the same wig I did for the Asylum version. I didn't want to sharpie the bottoms of the tails so I used red and black hair clips and clipped them on within the pigtails. I used cheap ones and plan on replacing them with Arda bang clips in black and red. The pigtails were retied in the wig and I set them a bit higher. I also straightened the pigtails so they fall straight rather then curl in.
- Wig Review
- Still in love with Arda wigs!
