In the mid 1990s Japanese artist Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam was showing a large scale crochet artwork at an art gallery when two rambunctious children approached her and asked if the sculpture, resembling a colorful hammock, could be climbed on.
I decided to do 3 designs since I’ve been getting a lot of request for Harley. Putting these together will be a bit harder than the rest since her traditional design has a lot of cross diagnol-ing what nots hah.
Design 1 (left): Easiest to find in your closet design.
Red plaid button up. Changing the collar white is optional!
Waist high pencil skirt. Add her diamond logo with fabric or fabric paint. If you don’t like pencil skirts, opt for an A-Line or shorts even.
Red tights are optional. You can also get patterned red/black/white tights too if you like.
Black boots or sexy high heels!
Design 2 (middle): Most difficult to find in your closet. I made this design based of rompers. Rompers seem to be really popular these days. I know Silly always looks super cute in them so I wanted to do a romperesk HQ design : )!
The best thing to do with the romper is to find a pattern of it and edit it to create the split black and red look. Or you can buy a white romper, unseam it, dye the seperate pieces, then sew it back together. With this design, it’s a little poofy at the legs and there is black lace at the bottom. You can make the poof by hemming the bottoms with elastic. Make sure the rompers have the diamond logo once again : )!
Checkered bandana or scarf.
Black and red hair ties. This design the hair ties/clips are the shapes of diamonds.
Striped arm warmers (or knee high socks cut at the feet to put your hands through).
Black/red gloves. The loose fit at the wrist is optional.
Any kind of tights. Red/black/white any combo.
Black and/or red boots. This design has a cowboy boot cut at the top but more sleeker/hugs the leg more and has a higher heel than regular cowboy boots. Any kind of boots would do.
Design 3 (right): Kind of easy to find in your closet or to buy.
Red hoodie. Hoodie being a crop kind is optional. Black fuzzies around the hood is also optional.
Black fitted top.
Red/black shorts. Or red/black pants. I’ve seen Hot Topic selling those types of pants in the recent past.
Checkered tights are optional. Or any sort of red/black/white tights. Having them two different colors would be cool : ).
Red/black shoes. Converses, boots, flats. Whichever you prefer.
I hope this is helpful for all of you who asked me about Harley Quinn inspired outfits for Halloween and all that jazz >w<! Also this is my first villain inspi sketch. Yay!
WHY DIDN’T I REMEMBER THIS FOR THE FIRST COMIC CON?????? UGGGGHHHHHH!!
