There are a variety of Harley Quinn costumes to choose from. There are several different Harley Quinn costume ideas to consider.
Costume for a Crazy Nurse
Because Harley Quinn was a doctor, one option is a medical-themed costume that resembles a crazed nurse’s uniform. A short white skirt, a white top, and a red corset or vest are typically used. Wear your hair in ponytails tied with black and red ribbons and add some black diamond shapes to it. You’re ready to go with the white face makeup and black eye mask that every Harley outfit requires.
Black and Red Two-Toned Costume
A half-black, half-red pair of leggings or pants, as well as a similarly two-toned blouse, is the second Harley Quinn costume option. Again, some black diamond shapes will need to be affixed to the red side of the pants, as well as a similar cosmetics effect.
The Black and Red Costume is a simpler version of the previous one.
The third Harley costume I’ve devised is identical to the second, except it allows you to use solid black or red leggings or pants. You’ll also need to cut out diamond shapes and glue them to your jeans. Make your diamond shapes dark if you’re wearing red jeans (and vice versa).
A black or red shirt should be paired with a black or red vest. You can add black or red arm gauntlets to a short-sleeved shirt for your outfit. Felt, paper, socks, or just about any other material will suffice. To open and close them, add double-sided velcro to a piece of cloth. One should be red and the other should be black. You’re done with the ponytails laced with crimson and black ribbons and the normal cosmetics.
How to Make Harley Quinn’s Two-Toned Black and Red Costume
You’ll need some sewing abilities to make this outfit, or you may enlist the help of a buddy who can sew. You’ll need the following items:
- Red Leggings Black Leggings A Red Shirt A Black Shirt
- A Corset in Black
- Needle for Sewing
- Red or black thread
- 1 Red Glove 1 Black Glove
- Boots in black
- Hair Ribbons in Red and Black
- Sewing the Shirt and Pants with a Black Half Mask or White and Black Face Makeup
Two T-shirts, one black and one red, are required. Each must be cut in half and then sewn together on the red and black sides.
Your leggings are in the same boat. After cutting the pants in half, stitch the red and black sides together. Cut some diamond shapes from red felt and attach them to the legs of your jeans.
You can sew the clothes together by hand or with a sewing machine. A stronger seam will be created by using a machine. If you require step-by-step directions, there are plenty of tutorials available online, but the essential concept remains the same.
What if I’m unable to sew?
If you don’t want to sew, wear the white t-shirt with red sleeves that you’ll find a few paragraphs down this page. You can also buy Harley Quinn boot covers to wear over a pair of black or red leggings to avoid having to cut and sew.
Hair and Makeup Finishing Touches
Make side ponytails with your hair and wrap red and black ribbons around them. You can use a half-black mask or black facepaint or theatre makeup to create a mask.
Two-Toned Cosplay Costume Example
This cosplayer’s Harley Quinn outfit was fashioned from a red and black striped corset, leggings with one black leg and one red leg, some excellent patent leather boots, and a pair of wristbands. These weren’t easy to come by, but as you can see from the photo, they were well worth the effort. Her hair was done at a salon, but red and black hair rinses or dyes can be used to achieve a similar look.
This is a fantastic costume! When you combine the white makeup with the black mask, you’ll be turned into Harley Quinn.
