Cosplayer HSC-Abby > Costume of Harley Quinn / Dr. Harleen Francis Quinzel (Batman)
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
The hoodie is made out of jersey lined with fleece in alternating red and black colors. I attempted to draft a "jester"-esque hood for the hoodie, rather than a plain hood, and I'm ok with how it turned out even though it's not quite what I envisioned. The dress is made out of some left over cotton sateen from another costume. I used the bodice pattern that I drafted for my Terra costume and attached a circle skirt and some straps. The tights used to be a red pair and a black pair that I cut up and sewed together.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This costume was inspired by Meredith McClaren's adorable "casual" Harley Quinn. I made the dress and hoodie last minute to wear while working the cosplay contest table for a pop culture convention.
- Styling Notes
- When I first used the wig for my Maka Albarn costume I had to straighten the curls with hot water. This time round I had to re-do the pigtails and leave out a few face framing pieces since the wig had gotten pretty rumpled from being stored for 4+ years.
- Wig Review
- This was my Maka Albarn wig that I got way back in 2009, so it's definitely not the best quality but it was still in petty good shape. I definitely plan on getting a new wig before I re-wear this costume though, because the wig is too shiny and not heat resistant, so it's difficult to restyle.
