„Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy.“
„You think I’m just a doll. A doll that’s pink and light. A doll you can arrange any way you like. You’re wrong. Very wrong. What you think of me is only a ghost of time. I am dangerous. And I will show you just how dark I can be.“
„Are you the Devil?“
„That so cute, you think you’re scary. Well, mister, I’ve seen scary and you don’t have his smile.“
Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, also known as Harley Quinn first appeared in the Batman: The Animated Series episode „Joker’s Favor“, where she served as a humorous female sidekick to the Joker. Originally she was the therapist of the Joker but fell madly in love with him and helped him to escape the Arkham Asylum. Since then she’s the sidekick of the Joker and helps him with his plans.
I planned to make a new bodysuit since I wasn’t satisfied with the first one anymore. The old bodysuit was hanging in my closet until October 2017 when I startet to plan a cosplay for Halloween. I was saying to myself: Why not my own version of Harley Quinn as a Zombie?
So I watched some videos on Youtube to get some tips and tricks on how to make the „wasted look“ The process was really fun and trying out some gory makeup was a great experience!

About the Project
I googled for how to weather clothes and found some really helpful tricks on Youtube. First I cutted holes into the bodysuit, collar and cuffs and ripped it slightly. Then I cooked it in a big bowl with black tea and let it dry in the oven so it got some crispy details. Finally I took fake blood, acrylic paint and cocoa powder with water to put some stains on it.
For the wig I used hair gel and hairspray to make it look wasted. In the end I’ve put some fake blood on it and voilà!
