I'm doing this version of Harley Quinn for Halloween.

29289

29288

I'm mainly confused on the hat. It's rather big so I'm afraid it will be really heavy.
Anyone have any ideas of how I can securely attach it to my head?
I'm also in need of a Pattern for the hat. I really don't even know where to start on it.

Thanks in advance! <3

Sweet! THE Batman version. I was actually originally going to do that version, but I just went with the TAS version.
As far as the hat goes, I pretty much had made my own pattern based on a generic Mardi Gras jester hat I already owned. But as far as securing it to the head.....that's where I got stuck....

I got my pattern for the TAS version from a designer on etsy named Holly Messinger. It might something you could modify but use as a starting point. Just search her name in the etsy.com site and you can email her.

As much as I love The Batman versions of things (http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y36/ZHynkel/Snapshot_20081010_3.jpg), for Quinn, the TAS version will be considerably easier because the hat will need to support much less weight.

I have the entire series on my computer if you want more reference images.

more reference images would be great! thanks! pm them to me if you can please. =]


I really wanna do The Batman version. It's my fave. I noticed that Harle from Chrono Cross has a similar hat design so maybe I can ask some Harle cosplayers for advice.
Thanks for your help everyone!

Do you plan on making the messenger bag she used to hold her heart-shaped grenades in her first appearance?

hmm. I wasn't planning on it but it would be a nice touch and then I could carry my stuff in it instead of my purse. i like that idea. i'll do it! =]

I'm making the same thing. My hat looks awesome, it's not EXACTLY like the canon but hey, it's not finished! It is pretty heavy though, and it's not even as big as hers. I'm thinking I could Sew it onto a headband to keep it on... maybe yours would work like that?
Mine is just a costume shop jester hat modified, so no help making it here >__<
