Changing a bit Harley Quinn

Hello friends, and readers.

As I was studying how I am going to develop Harley Quinn cosplay, I was realizing that to look nice on that outfit I would need to change just one peace. The skirt! And also let you know that I finally chose to go for the nurse outfit, basically because of the boots. I will explain that in another post.

While I’m in the process of loosing some weight and get fit ( I’ll get there, I’m sure.. eventually), I need to make some arrangements to this cosplay to look nicer in my bodyshape.

So, I decided to change the cotton white tennis like skirt from the nurse outfit, and make a fluffy tutu skirt instead. I think is going to look nice on me, and it will help me to hide those little “bumps” I don’t like to show.

I wasn’t too sure if I should leave it white or since I’m making up something new I could change the colors. I did some tests, and I think this two are my favorite designs so far.

On the left, I added a couple of belts in a crossed position, one of each color. And the tulle is going to be mixed, red and purple all around with a long tail with both colors.

On the right, I’m going for just one big black belt, and divide the color in red and blue opositing the boots.

What do you think ?

1st project. Harley Quinn

Harely Quinn Nurse design

Yep! I decided to develop this Siren of Gotham for several reasons:

– There’s plenty of information on Internet about her, and many other cosplayers had done her, which also helps me find patterns, tips and ideas easy. I’m noob! I need easy piece stuff. For now.

– She has many official designs, from the comics and video games, which allows me to swing between all of them and luckily add something of my own on her.

– I love her character, I think she’s mental and I love that. Much more fun to play her!

For my design I would like to go for the nurse style seen in Arkham Asylum and in this post itself. But I like much more the colors used in the Arkham City version, which I think are dirtier and give to Harley a much dangerous look than her previous colorful nurse.

The other version of Harley is the old one, which even is quite lovely and cool, I think it goes a bit away of the dirty and nasty look I want to give to my own version of Harley. Also I think that to look really nice on that kind of catsuit is better to be really fit. But it looks comfortable, though!

So, once decided the project I can’t get back! Even if I do mistakes I will post everything here, because I think that I’m going to make many of them, I’ve just started and it’s kind of “complicated” for me to learn how to sew, using the sewing machine and learning about fabrics, patrons and stuff.

Wish me luck!
