I'm looking at cos playing as Harley Quinn for Comic Con 2010 [ so I've got a bit of time].
Now, there's no way in .... I'm skinny enough to pull off the normal costume.
So I was thinking about taking a different route and creating something along the lines of http://deathtoll1912.deviantart.com/art/Harley-Quinn-88427911 . I've already been in contact with the artist and she's given me permission to use it.

I think it's pretty nifty and I've had a lot of good feedback so far, but I thought I'd check here as well.

Also, I'm fully aware that she has blue eyes, but my eyes are brown/green, should I get coloured contacts?

I'm also open to suggestions and ideas.
With the outfit, I'd be caring an oversized mallet much like http://eccentricass.deviantart.com/art/Go-LoOoOney-134736329

thanks in advance!

I think the fanart will be great! If you wanted another option, you could take a look at Harley's new outfit in the recently-released Arkham Asylum! (http://www.sidekickcomicsuk.com/blogs/media/blogs/sidekick//Harleyquinnnew.jpg)

I think if you go with the dress version, you should forgo the mallet, and make a fan like what she has in the picture. The mallet just isn't very fitting for a ballgown.

If you are going for as near accuracy as possible, I would get the contacts. It would just be a "plus." No one would mark you down or criticize your costume for not having blue eyes.

Nonono,please noone do that atrocity in Arkham Asylum.

The fanart looks lovely,and if you do that well I will bow to your awesomeness.I've seen something similar to that,it was gorgeous.

I just reeeally hate the game design.Harley should be cute and sexy,not skanky.Plus-it doesn't LOOK like her,it has no semblance of 'Harley'.Besides,they went back to classic look Joker,so how did Harley end up like that?

i would go with the fanart
maybe just me but i hated harley's new uniform in arkham asylum

i think that if you have some really vibrant blue contacts then definetly wear them but otherwise it doesn't really matter that much cause she's wear a mask anyways

I think I'll take your advice and forgo the mallet, I got thinking too that I'm not sure if I want to be lugging it around all day.But I'm going to custom make the fan she's using.

Back to the contacts, naturally my eyes are two different colours, so, should I go with the same shade of blue for both or get two different shades that complement each other?

thanks again!

Hah don't worry! If I'm not skinny enough to pull off the original outfit theres no way I could pull off that!
thanks for the reply!

Once it's done I'll post pictures of the said awesomeness, buwhaha.

I don't know, I think it's cool. It fit in with what was going on in the game's storyline, if you've played it, especially since she used to be a doctor. To each their own. ^_^

Pish and tosh my dear girl.The suit can look wonderful on anyone is tailored right.
(it can also make you look like a prat if the pattern was the wring size *blush*)
But really,the suit would be good-I dos till adore that fanart design though.
