Sheï¿½s cute, funny, sexy, and a whole lot of crazy, a girlï¿½s costume dream.
Luckily we put together an easy step-by-step tutorial for how to make Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. All products are listed at the bottom.
First we have to make Harley Quinnï¿½s shorts.
- You need boy shorts in Scarlet red and Royal [MAKE CLICKABLE LINKS TO PRODUCTS ON OUR PAGE].
- Pull both shorts inside out, so the label is towards the back.
- Cut one-inch to the side of the seam all the way around on both shorts, but make sure youï¿½re cutting the different sides of the legs.
- Pin your seam back together all the way around.
- Sew them carefully back together at ï¿½ inch seam.
- Take your pins out and flip it back right side out.
- Ta-dah you have Harleyï¿½s shorts!
- For the shirt you need red and black paint, a t-shirt, a sponge brush, and tape.
- Tape off the sections of the top of the shirt that you are going to paint red and sponge paint the paint on.
- Use tape to add the stripes to her arms in paint.
- Carefully write ï¿½Daddyï¿½s Lil Monsterï¿½ in black paint across the middle.
- Cut off the sleeves and add some holes to the middle.
- For the choker we used glitter adhesive lettering.
- Pick out the correct letters for pudding, measure your neck, and using either extra fabric or fabric from the sleeve hot glue it down to hide the edges.
- Glue the letters ï¿½PUDDINï¿½ onto the front of the choker.
- Add a piece of velcro to the front and back of the choker to attach it to your neck, we recommend using fabric tack for this, but hot glue will work.
- Prime and lighten your face.
- Add contouring and smudge some grey and blacks in for texture.
- Add a bright blue face paint with a sponge to and around one eye.
- Add a bright red face paint with a sponge to the other eye.
- Use a red and blue pencil to define the eye shape a little better and add some wounds.
- Use that same red pencil to outline and accentuate the lips.
- Use a bright red lipstick to fill.
- Rub your hand down the lips to smear one side.
- Use a black pencil to outline the eyes and draw on a heart detailing. <3
