According to Screen Rant, the show’s creators wanted to give The Joker a henchwoman that was in the vein of the female accomplices seen in the 1960s Batman live-action series. After her popularity, she appeared in games and comics on the big screen. Whether or not the Halloween Harley’s out there have a Joker to share the special day with, the cool thing is that Harley Quinn has evolved into enough of a character on her own in comics and other media that far from being a sidekick without a leading-clown, a solo Harley is well within reason. For now, the major question arising from Robbie’s turn as Joker sidekick Harley Quinn is not how she tackles the psycho-sexual nuances of her relationship with Jared Leto’s Joker, but whether or not she’ll wear that iconic sexy lil’ jester costume that appeared in the original DC comic. No one’s going to argue that Margot Robbie’s black, torn fishnets and hot pants get-up is anything other than iconic. Although Harley Quinn’s recent surge in popularity is due primarily to Margot Robbie’s pastel version in Suicide Squad, quite a few versions of Harley pre-date the cotton candy colored vixen in hot pants.
In 2014 an original animated film from DC was released called “Batman: Assault on Arkham.” In the film Harley is again apart of the Suicide Squad, with another new outfit.

If you want to rock that look, and you still hope to stand out in a crowd, you’re going to need a Daddy’s Little Monster tee, a golden Puddin’ choker, and DC’s copyrighted Harley jacket. Of course, you could also attend a Halloween party dressed as cappuccino-sipping Harley, from the end of the film, who inexplicably has access to pink and blue hair dye while still wearing her prison jumpsuit. Reduced in attendance, shorter in the number of days, and purposefully smaller in scope, this convention is meant to be a more intimate gathering while still evoking the fun community feeling our conventions are known for,’ the event’s website said. Benach’s costumes are also peppered with little visual hints of Gotham’s most self-serving characters’ psyches. Discover these officially licensed Harley Quinn costumes.
These adaptational challenges included the costumes that the actors wore: after all, attempting to stay accurate to the source material, but also create a fresh and exciting look, can be a difficult balance. If you don’t want to cover up your hair, you can always allow yourself the blonde pigtails, or even attend your Halloween party as a pre-Jokerized Harleen Quinzel, in a lab coat and cat-eye glasses. Pair a glittery black and gold, deep-V minidress with an oiled up wig, drape your body in gold jewelry and don’t forget the red lipstick. Don’t forget that little heart tat under one eye, and absolutely fill in your eyebrows. The two could bring these directions to the DCEU and become genuinely redeemed figures — and find a level of understanding with one another.

Out of all of her recent incarnations this costume is most like her original jester outfit now as a two piece. Hailey wore a wedding dress designed by Virgil Abloh for the ceremony, though she had changed out of that by the time it was the garter toss. Of course, there’s also the strip club dress Harley wears while writhing around for Joker’s amusement. The images feature Harley’s beach uniform, as well as the red dress she dons later in The Suicide Squad. She also revealed there’s a scene in the upcoming film dedicated to the newly assembled squad fitting back into their “murder suits” which may be when we get a montage of Quinn’s outfit changes. After the overall blah-ness that was Batman v Superman, the franchise is bouncing back thanks to a certain group of super-villains scheduled to save the world (and make Warner Brothers a heck of a lot of money) when they crash into theaters next month.
