About this costume:
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel is one of my favorite costumes to do, and one of
my only villains so far! This is my own taken on Harley’s outfit. I used a lot of
spare parts and old pieces to put this outfit together.
How I made the costume:
The corset is a red underbust style that I spray painted black on one side. I then added the little white fuzzy
ball trim and cut out a few vinyl diamonds and glued those on. The top part of the corset is a black satin
bra with the matching trim. The skirt is my Sith Cheerleader skirt. Under the skirt is a black garter belt by
Victoria’s Secret. I’m wearing faux fencenet pantyhose and over that is one black/red stripe stocking and
one heart top stripe stocking.
I am wearing Stack-301’s by Demonia. I borrowed one red one from my purple and red Arkham Asylum set
and paired it with one from a black pair.
The gloves are plain black gloves trimmed with the fuzzy ball trim. The leather mask is by kelldragon on
Etsy. I stuck it on with “fashion tape" but you can also use elastic.
I made the hammer with a pvc pipe wrapped in electrical tape and a spray painted oatmeal can.
Hair & Make-up:
I had professional hair and make-up for this shoot, done by Shawna Rae. She put my hair in pigtails and
then teased and teased with a brush until I had giant poofs.
The white is real clown make-up. I tried the cheap stuff in a tube and from a bottle and it all looked too
cakey. The clown white makes is so you can build the color up until you get the shade you want.
