How to Rock Suicide Squad’s Joker + Harley Quinn As a Couples Costume
If you’re one of those people who lives to create show-stopping couples costumes with your S.O. every year, then you’re in luck, because Harley Quinn and the Joker from Suicide Squad are *the* couple of the year, with their oddly heartfelt, twisted unity. These two each have a chaotic history individually, but when the stars aligned to create their serendipitous love story, we couldn’t help but have a little empathy and fall in love with this quirky, villainous couple. This is what happens when being bad feels and looks so good! Read on for our costume tips and tricks.
Harley Quinn Costume
You can choose to buy or DIY this look, or do a little of both (which I recommend). Think about time versus money for each piece and then decide what’s best for you. I will say that the wig, shirt, choker, glove, tights and holster were super clutch to purchase. I did some finessing to make them look even more authentic. For the rest of the look, I got items that were close, and then made the pieces I couldn’t find, like the shorts, shoes and various accessories. You can get the full lowdown on how I made the Harley Quinn costume here. Either way, once you build the look (hair and makeup included), simply get into character. I found this oddly natural for me to do (it’s one of those costumes that takes you there, ya know?!).
Believe it or not, all I had to purchase here was the maroon shirt, which I found at a thrift store. Zane owned the rest and your boo probably does too. This look is really about the makeup. You can get the full Joker tutorial here.
Depending on your mood and the type of party you’re attending, you can bring along some fun accessories. The trick to this look truly is getting into character. Zane had way too much fun with this knife! Yikes.
