Harley Quinn Costumes for Adults
Oddly enough, Harley Quinn's entry into the world of DC came not from comic books, but from Batman: The Animated Series. Sacrilege, right? The best characters have to come straight from the pages of the comic book, right? Wrong! She seems like such a developed and mature character these days, but she started out as a wacky sidekick to the Joker in an early episode of the critically acclaimed cartoon. The show may have been aimed at children, but adults certainly took notice of the series. It won plenty of awards during its time on the air and a whole plethora of children tuned in each week. Now, those fans of the Batman cartoon on the telly have all grown up and they remember Harley with quite a sense of nostalgia. That's why Harley Quinn costumes for adults strike a chord with adult fans! These costumes are the perfect way for those fans to relive some of their childhood dreams, but they are also great for new fans of the feisty female villain. Check out our list of the best ones to date!
Classic Harley Quinn Cosplay
We almost certainly had to begin with the classic Harley Quinn costume! After all, it stands as the most recognisable look that she's ever worn! Her first appearance was back in 1992, in an episode called "Joker's Favor". But it was not her last. She quickly became a fan favourite and got an expanded back story along with plenty of new adventures in the Batman comic books. No small part of that was due to her unique look, which differed greatly from most of the villains in Batman's Rogues Gallery. Her simple suit mimicked the look of a classic harlequin costume, featuring bright reds that popped on the screen. This officially licensed outfit does a great job of capturing the look from the cartoon series and brings it into the realm of live-action!
Harley Quinn Red and Black Costume
Harley's classic costume comes in many different flavours. Her red and black colour scheme provides a great palette for creating villainous vibes. When it comes to cosplay, it also provides a playground to craft a unique look with her traditional costume since red and black is a rather easy colour combination to accessorise with. This red and black Harley Quinn outfit puts a shimmering sheen to the whole affair while remaining true to the original design from Batman: The Animated Series. With a form-fitting style, it's an easy and appealing option for anyone who wants to add a show-stopping style to the iconic look.
Harley Quinn Jester Costume
You don't have to follow the costume designs from The Animated Series to put your own mark on a Harley Quinn inspired look. After all, each artist who works on the Batman comic books adds their own touch to her look, often giving her a costume makeover. So you should feel free to make the character your own, too! Cosplay is all about adding your own special spice to your favourite characters! This jester-style costume brings you a look that riffs off of the traditional costume by adding some extra patterning and some gold detailing into the mix. We happen to think that Mr. J would take notice of this little number.
As many may know, Harley Quinn takes her style from the classic harlequins of Italian entertainment. They were clowns that wore a checkered diamond pattern on their outfits and provided royalty with some much-needed laughter. (Some of those Renaissance kings were severely lacking in humour.) Often times, they ended up foiling the plans of their master by accident. Sounds exactly like Harley, doesn't it? Well, we carry a few outfits that let you incorporate the historical harlequin style into your brand new villain appearance. Just try this harlequin costume on for your next foray into Gotham City.
Suicide Squad Harley Quinn Costume
Suicide Squad made a pretty big splash in cinemas back in 2016, bringing with it a brand new iteration of the Batman villain. We got to see characters like Deathshot, Katana, and even Flash's big baddie, Captain Boomerang. Wielding a brand new baseball bat, a blue and red hairstyle, and a modern outfit, Margot Robbie helped redefine the modern image of Harley. Her outfit itself is rather simple, consisting of a pair of shorts, a t-shirt, and a jacket. It's a large difference compared to the spandex suits and wild colours worn by most villains, but we happen to think that Harley does the Suicide Squad costume justice in the film. Just pair this fancy dress with some of our accessories and you'll be ready to join the team yourself.
Harley Quinn Arkham Asylum Costume
We cannot talk about Harley Quinn costume options without touching on Batman video game series. Rockstar Games brought us the first Arkham Asylum game all the way back in 2009, and quite frankly, it was about time. It's proven to be one of greatest video game series ever made! It spawned various sequel games starring Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill (of Star Wars fame). Of course, it also brought us the black and red, leather-style outfit in Arkham City which has become a recognisable look on its own. This Arkham City Harley Quinn Costume brings the look straight from the game. All you need is a little bit of costume makeup and the right attitude to pull off the look.
Sexy Harley Quinn Costumes
Let's add a little spice to that supervillain style! After all, Harley is the type of girl that has a wild and unpredictable attitude, and that attitude has become a staple part of her best storylines in the comics. Her choice of outfits goes hand in hand with that! Of course, many versions of Harley's look have had a sexy spin to them, so we wouldn't be doing the character justice if we didn't talk about our sexy Harley Quinn costumes. Just check out some of our favourite ones below. With some form-fitting styles and high cut skirts, there are the types of outfits that add the right amount of sauciness to your classic Harley look.
Sexy Jester Outfit
First up, let's look at a simple yet sexy bodysuit style look that any budding supervillain can feel great in. It combines sequins, black and white checkers, and a form fit to help you feel confident enough to craft your own devious plan! The Joker and Batman will both be powerless to your new bold look. Have a look at many of our clown accessories to complete the look YOUR way. This costume accessorises quite well with a colourful wig, some basic clown makeup and a pair of very sexy high heels!
Sexy Harley Quinn Dress
Sometimes a skirt just feels right! We have a ton of bodysuit-style Harley costumes, but some girls just need to twirl. And this sexy jester dress comes with one that you can totally twirl in! This is the kind of outfit you wear when you want some whimsical fun to go along with your villainous hunger for mayhem. Besides, some of Harley's acrobatic ninja-style moves look awesome while wearing a skirt… so that's just something to think about.
Sexy Harley Quinn Corset
Corsets are another way to add a sexy flair to your look! Some women wear corsets to help accentuate their shape and this deluxe Harley Quinn Corset costume doesn't disappoint. Of course, it's essential to get one that can be adjusted to your liking—getting a comfortable fit is paramount if you plan on wearing one. This one, of course, brings the iconic jester style that Harley is known for, so you may just feel like having a little sparring match with Batman himself.
Sexy Harley Quinn Fancy Dress
Harley Quinn's Suicide Squad put a modern twist on the look and there's plenty of room to play. This particular Daddy's Little Monster Costume turns the look into sexy, form-fitting bodysuit that rocks the red and blue colour scheme from the movie. It's a great way to cosplay as your favourite gal from Birds of Prey. Just make sure you pair this up with a baseball bat to get a look that authentic and sassy!
Harley Quinn Kids Costumes
We definitely have to bring it back to the kids! After all, even though adults can get into the mood of superheroes and villains, children are the purest fans of comic heroes. Harley did start as a character in a kid's cartoon, and now with DC Super Hero Girls, Harley has made a resurgence in popularity among kids.
DC Super Hero Girls Costume
DC Super Hero Girls has really taken off! It chronicles the tale of popular DC superheroes during their rough high school days. Harley Quinn even goes to the same high school as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl in this wacky alternate iteration of the heroes. This superhero girls' Harley costume comes licensed from the series and is perfect for any young superhero in training.
Girls’ Harley Quinn Costume
One of the best parts about Batman: The Animated Series is that you can share it with your kids when they finally start to show interest in the caped crusader. Of course, Harley Quinn is bound to be one of your child's favourite characters, so dressing up like her in this cartoon version of the Harley Quinn outfit is going to be like a dream come true.
Joker and Harley Quinn Costumes
Harley Quinn and the Joker are one wild couple. Their idea of a fun time is going on a citywide crime spree with their henchmen. Sometimes their relationship is portrayed as a chaotic mess. Other times, they're a love-struck duo bent on destruction. How will you and your significant other play the iconic couple? Well, that's entirely up to you, but here are a few suggestions.
Suicide Squad Joker and Harley Quinn
Suicide Squad turned the classic relationship on its head. Traditionally, the power dynamics put the Joker in charge of the duo, but in the 2016 movie, they shared a slightly more equal level of sovereignty in the relationship. You can recreate that modern Harley and Joker style look with these costumes, based on the film.
Classic Joker and Harley Quinn Fancy Dress
The other big look to pursue is the classic one! There's just something about the original look from Batman: The Animated Series. Maybe it's the simplified style. Maybe it's the cartoon-style antics that they engage in. Whatever it is, the classic look is always a hit at a costume party. These Harley Quinn and Joker costumes based on the series recreate that look with ease.
Harley Quinn Makeup Tutorial
