171: Harley Quinn Redesign
I decided to go ahead and try to design my own Harley costume since I hate the relaunch version so much (so does everyone else, apparently). I went at this from the stand-point that for some reason it had to be done, because her classic costume needs no update. So this is what I would do if I absolutely had to. I wanted to keep elements of the classic costume, keep it practical and make it look like she can move in it. I went with the glasses to give her a smart, sexy doctor kind of look and combined it with a cool punk hairstyle that is sort of shaped like her old cowl. I kept the belt and pouches, cuz a girl needs a place to keep all her laughing gas and exploding cigars. It’s meant to be practical and sexy without being blatantly slutty and sexist. I hope you like it – I just wish the DC folks cared about this character as much as we do.
