And now you know what it's like to stare passionately into your own eyes (kinda)

Okay, odd jokes aside (never!) once again an amazing set from you. The costume is probably one of the most interesting Harley Quinn costumes I've ever seen and its almost the sort of thing I'd expect to see in a really cool batman adaption!
Did you design this yourself?

This guy! He's got jokes!

Yeah, this one was my own design - I don't normally like original Harley Quinn designs (generally, I've seen a few I really really dig), but when my friend who does my dreadlocks was in town from Texas, I asked her if she wanted to do black/red and give me Harley Quinn dreadlocks. I sorta based the costume around that, and things I had in my closet already. I actually am fairly happy with how it came together, although I wanted to make a ruffled Victorian style neck ruffle with it but didn't get around to it. I wore this to Long Beach Comic Con and people seemed to like the design, though. I am going to redo classic Harley and do Mad Love Harley in 2013, for sure! I've done classic Harley twice already but it was before I started modeling + right when I started modeling, plus my costume skills are much better now...She'll always be one of my favorite characters! (Like every girl who cosplays, pffft)

This is actually the second time I've had silly Harley Quinn themed hair. I had a Harley Quinn mohawk with diamonds for awhile, too

Well it worked out excellently!
The Victorian ruffle would have been cool, and would have looked great too! Shame you couldn't add it but theres always another time.

Your costume skills are downright impressive! I've never been a huge fan of cosplay, but I sincerely mean it when I say that I am constantly impressed by the costumes you make!

I'll find an excuse to make one another time D:

Thanks a bunch! To be honest with you, I prefer making original designs to cosplay - I love cosplay a lot, and have been doing it for over a decade, but it's always better to be recognized for my own original work over something that 10000 people have already done, y'know? But the general public seems to prefer seeing a new version of the same thing they've seen a billion times over a new concept entirely...but at least I try to stand out and do something a little different (and I never cover up my tattoos or anything) when I do cosplay.

I'll bet! With your own original designs, you can add a bit of your own ideas into a character and reinvent them in interesting ways that might make people go "oooh I love what you did to..."
I like seeing someone do something different with a familiar character. It really showcases their creativity!
