Harley Quinn - ID by Jackolyn Harley Quinn - ID by Jackolyn
"I've always had a thing for extreme personalities. You can't deny, there's an element of glamour to these super-criminals."
~Harley Quinn - Mad Love


--

This is me as the one and only Harley Quinn!
You can't see the whole costume, but this is one of my favourite shots from my spontaneous photo shoot -- Inspired by 'The Killing Joke' cover, of course! =D

My costume was all made at home, and I hope to upload full body shots soon, I put alot of effort into all of it (especially her corset)
It's the Harley Quinn from Arkham City, my favourite modern designs of hers, but with a few changes.
I really HATE her hair in that game, so I just went o-natural! My natural hair colour, half black and half red. I've had it like this for 3-almost 4 years now. So if you ask me why my hair is like her hair from Suicide Squad, I'm going to hurt you.
Badly.
I've had my hair half black and half red for YEARS.

I finally have my Harley Quinn costume finished, after 2 years of planning and postponing, it's finally done! Hooray!!

So please leave me a comment, and let me know what you think! =D

"All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day. You had a bad day once, am I right? I know I am. I can tell. You had a bad day and everything changed. You had a bad day, and it drove you as crazy as everybody else... Only you won't admit it! You have to keep pretending that life makes sense, that there's some point to all this struggling! God you make me want to puke. I mean, what is it with you? What made you what you are? Girlfriend killed by the mob, maybe? Brother carved up by some mugger? Something like that, I bet. Something like that... Something like that happened to me, you know. I... I'm not exactly sure what it was. Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another... If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice! Ha ha ha! But my point is... My point is, I went crazy. When I saw what a black, awful joke the world was, I went crazy as a coot! I admit it! Why can't you? I mean, you're not unintelligent! You must see the reality of the situation. Do you know how many times we've come close to world war three over a flock of geese on a computer screen? Do you know what triggered the last world war? An argument over how many telegraph poles Germany owed its war debt creditors! Telegraph poles! Ha ha ha ha HA! It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for... it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?"-Joker, The Killing Joke

I think many have tried to redo the "Killing Joke" cover when wearing their costumes. I actually intended to do so too but kinda forgot about it.
However, to be honest I think your version of the "Killing Joke" cover redo is the best from what I've seen so far.

Your expression is great, I like that you chose to smile instead of grinning because it adds something more sinister to the picture and you know kinda your own style.
I also really like your outfit of Harley. I mean I am not really a fan of her new outfits but I if I had to chose one that I at least kinda like then it would be the Arkham City version.
In this case your two coloured hair makes it look cooler though.

Thank you very much! The Killing Joke is one of my favourite Joker comics, and so when I was doing my makeup test the idea popped into my head and I just ran with it. My natural "full grin" isn't all that great, I pride myself on being able to create a devlish grin and so I did that here. Arkham City is one of my favourite games, and though Harley's voice in that game is less than appealing; her outfit is easily one of her better ones out of all of her recent re-makes.
And as far as my hair goes, I've had it like this for almost 4 years now and I have no intention of letting it go anytime soon. (Though if people keep calling it "New 52" hair, someone's going to get hurt.) :giggle:

Who doesn't like The Killing Joker? :D
And I like that you are aware of how to use your smile best. Sounds weird but I guess you know what I mean. Lots of people are ruining the whole effect because of small details like their smiles or facial expression. You, however, knew that a smile works better for you than a grin. You know, that's something that I really like, changing details without changing the whole thing.
Agreed. Arkham City is definitely one of the best games I have played yet and I still love walking through all those little streets of Arkham City, although I am close to having found everything. And putting it that way I can only agree that this outfit is one of her better ones out of all her re-makes.

Her new outfit (if you are referring to the Reboot outfit) in all honesty isn't THAT bad. But I won't lie to you and say that I haven't ranted about it once or twice.
Compared to the original Harley it's a far departure and I can easily see why so many fans are upset about it, but when you take into consideration that this isn't the same bubbly Harley Quinn; it suits her new persona quite nicely.
I LOVE her Arkham Asylum/City costumes, but the Reboot for me is a meh. I think it goes just a little bit too far.
(The one thing that really urked me was the fact that she has my half black and half red hair. I've had my hair like that for 4-5 years now, and since she came around everyone's assuming I'm copying it from her) =(
