Bambi. posted on 9 May, 2010 - 17:29
Oooo yeh. it look so shiny on the pic but it isn't. However I still need to colour it and weather it etc so will look completely different to this with any luck haha! Thanks for the kind words people =)

Bambi. posted on 11 May, 2010 - 22:00
Thanks guys! xD Means alot! I really hope I can pull this off for LFCC o.0 Ranma: She's gonna cost me enough without a wig so its a good job! Will just have to get my roots on just before the con =p

Ranma1-2 posted on 11 May, 2010 - 22:25
..Im guessing its the boots that are costing??

Bambi. posted on 11 May, 2010 - 22:30
Yup! I have an idea of how to do them its just source a base boot that would work well enough to mod =/ gah ahahha

Ranma1-2 posted on 12 May, 2010 - 09:14
Yeah I 've seen the cost of those platform boots! Unless you can scoop something cheap off eBy. eg picked up my white ones for 10 quid. Sometimes you're lucky and no one else bids. Good luck with it. :)

Bambi. posted on 12 May, 2010 - 09:43
Thanks hun! I'm watching something on eBay atm. fingers crossed I can grab a bargain. I'll need one! haha

Ranma1-2 posted on 26 May, 2010 - 00:37
Lovin that lil red corset, looks pretty darn close to me. Can you improve on this by making another one, babes?? I think I'd happily settle for this. Then you're nearly there. ^_^

Bambi. posted on 26 May, 2010 - 10:56
Ranma: Yeh it still needs alot of modding work doing to it but will be able to start that from this weekend xD I was worried about it being to short but it seems ok xD really happy with it! Thanks for all the kind comments from everyone else. <3 you guys! :D

Ikkaku-kun posted on 2 June, 2010 - 21:29
just nice :P ... her arkham costume definitely gets across the darkness of her character rather than the more silly/clownish look of the traditional outfit. you do her great justice

nanahara posted on 2 June, 2010 - 21:29
niiiiiiiice XD, you are doing so awsome with this

Ranma1-2 posted on 21 June, 2010 - 15:45
Finished costume pic - looking great Bambi. In the "makeupssss" pic the eye mask looks more menacing and scheming like the artwork Harley.. Is that cuz you painted it on different or because you are scowling for the photo?

No thanks posted on 21 June, 2010 - 16:58
*foams* You look absoloutly awesome! You've done an AWESOME job on this!

ryaoki posted on 21 June, 2010 - 20:25

Bambi. posted on 21 June, 2010 - 22:41
Ryaoki: yeh I realised hence my lil side comment on the new pic lol. I just got excited about it almost being finished so I'm gonna fix it come pay day. easy fix so I'm not fussed xD Ramna: The make up in the face pic was better lighted than my fll body shot. (Face shot was taken in the bathroom when the bulb worked :D Also scowling was in process when the pic was taken too hehe. I'm gonna invest in proper grease paint and try make/buy a eye mask though so theres no risk of the black running down my face ahaha =) Charlotte: Thank you huni =) and thanks to everyone else for you kind words =D

Captain_Marvelous posted on 1 July, 2010 - 19:24
Ryaoki Beleive it or not those two are one and the same :) you have to Mod Mavericks to be Steampunk :P thats the base nerf!

Bambi. posted on 1 July, 2010 - 19:28

callmemilo posted on 1 July, 2010 - 22:43

This is brilliant, it must've been a pain working with all that faux leather Gratz!

- posted on 6 October, 2010 - 07:04
This cosplay was sick, i still stare at it everytime i see it. You really suit her. Without a doubt one of the best Harley quinn cosplayers out there. You should totally cosplay her again ; D

Lisu-chan posted on 8 October, 2010 - 18:21
Aaaaah I remember you! I must compliment you, just as I did on London Expo, how I thought no one would bother to put much effort in this costume and here you were, being spot on! You suit Harley Quinn so much, I might need to call a bomb squad should you ever decided to wear it again! (Because; you never know! =P) Long story short; You're amazing!

Bambi. posted on 10 October, 2010 - 23:01
Marauchettes: Pleather is a biiiiiiiiiiitch!! I hated working with it cos it was the cheapo crap from my local store too! D: Sweaty legs... mmmmmmm xD haha SachikoYumi: Awww thanks huni <3<3... I'm thinking about getting her out for Sunday night for Halloween times... If I can find all the bits for it! xD Lisu: eeeeeeeee thank you babes! It means alot coming from guys like you ^.^ I'll warn you in advance as I wanna cause some mischief... I mean make an appearance at Expo O:) Maybe I just suit psychotic girlies xD haha Thank you for all the kind words everyone! You're all AWESOME! <3 Best Harley... wow! thats a big honour to give someone like me! *blush* Its my best cosplay I think and I love her so so much!! <3<3 xxxxxx

Sephirayne posted on 4 January, 2011 - 10:08
Love this. You look amazing hun. You've got it so spot on. Where did you get the boots from?

Bambi. posted on 4 January, 2011 - 13:53
Thanks huni hehe =) Hopefully rewearing for LFCC woopwoop xD The boots were just normal calf high platform boots which I painted purple and red. The covers were made from leatherette (yes... very sticky yacky legs after wearing them all day hahaha) :)

Rain posted on 29 January, 2011 - 02:51
I remember seeing you at LFCC last year! Very accurate , amazing job

Warden Tag

Total cost: £0.00

11th July 2010

Pow pow!!!

Thanks to a lil creative and practical thinking from my parents. I managed to make this badboy up to replace the nerf fail I experienced 2 weeks ago ¬_¬ However, I may have spent £10 on a Maverick I wont be using for Harley (I'm sure Ill find some other use for it) The replacement cos me nothing! Sustainable prop makings for me xD The gun was made from half a 3 litre dr pepper bottle, carpet underlay/furniture foam, and some styrofoam that my dad picked up from work for me =) The base was made in one of my usual visits to the momma and poppa's to finish Skippypedia's Great Saiyaman outfit. So was a nice quick build =) The gun is just painted with your standard acrylics but will be adding a clear coat to make sure it is a lil protected from knocks and bumps etc! Love this so much and its comically big for a reason! =D

20th June 2010

Gloves finished :D (Crap pic sorry)

Ok so... I decided that due to severe lack of funds cos of stupid car >.<, with the assistance of Josh, I went to make use of my excess leatherette by making some gloves/gauntlet type things for Harley. I painted them the same way I did with the boots and covers (which are now done!) May need to sand a wee bit more and reapply paint in some places but is cool. I am quite happy with them, they are a lil baggy (even with the zips added) but that will be fixed once I get my bracelets to tuck in any baggy/hanging bits that the zips haven't held in. I will be making the bracelets or attempting to make them rather.The bf has let me take the studs from his own studded belt to make the two bracelets and make further use of yet more leatherette. (Should hopefully save a lil bit more money =) I will probably use my spare Velcro for fastenings for this =)

13th June 2010


Boots are about 80% complete now I think =) I just need to attach them to the actually base boot then we are go! xD Again... HEAVY mod job on these bad boys! So happy with them though. I'm having problems thinking of a suitable fastening which wont look odd against the zip of the base boot... the covers will only be covering the top of the boot not the whole thing... should have thought this through maybe :/ lol oh well. I'll guess I'll just have to wait and see =)

13th June 2010


Finally finished it! So much work has gone into this to make it look as much like the original as I could. and considering it initially looked like this..... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270577719081&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT I'm pretty impressed with my lil self xD The only detail I need to add is on the straps at the back but that can be a last minute detail while I focus on the boots. Sand paper ad shoe polish helped me weather it and I added the purple panel and belt detail this week. This has been an on off project for about a month and was one of the more time consuming parts of the costume... I knew from the beginning that the corset and boots would be the most customised and need the most work! Overall I think I have done a good job even if it is a mod job =) P.S. Excuse the tummy box xD haha

12th May 2010


Alot of the hand made work I am doing, I am doing in stages if it is a major part. The skirt is a big part of the outfit but was reasonably quick to do! I have NEVER made anything clothing wise like this before. I found an old table cloth and then my scissor hand went a bit crazy and this magical thing happened. I was so scared about doing this cos I was dreading it was going to go wrong! >.< I guess I need to have a tiny bit more faith in myself! The belt WILL be changing colour thanks to my trusty pal Sharpie and co <3 I was just too excited to do the belt after I had do the skirt. It is still a work in progress as I need to add the belt, which I wont be doing until July as I am planning on losing a bit of weight before LFCC so do not want to finish it now and it not fit right at LFCC =/ lol and adding a zip is easy peasy =) I also need to mucky it up a bit as we know Harley aint the squeakiest clean un around xD haha I also pinned together a hat for Harley with some leftover table cloth and a bit of elastic to hold it on my head =) but I don't think that is worth a seperate journal do you? =p

12th May 2010

Make Up

Aaaaaanyway.... I got a tad bored last night and thought it would a good idea to plaster my face with Harley makeup times =D It was fun but soon dried and cracked so I need to think about whether I will use the same stuff of try something different! The only things I will need to change for this will be to add some purple into the makeup around the eyes, buy some red lipstick as ink tastes yak =p and also need to find some less conspicuous plugs for my ears as they just look daft! Oh! I will also make sure I get my roots done soon before LFCC as we dont want manky dark roots now do we =)

12th May 2010

Corset Mock Up

Seeing as this corset top is about as custom as you can get for someone like me! I'm planning on making it from scratch. Over the weekend, I cut the panels and loosely tacked into the shape of a corset. I wont be putting bones into the corset as I dont feel it is within what little ability I have at the moment! I have pinned in a zip fastening to the back for a better fit to compensate for this. However. The clinch in the waist of the corset has caused the top/underbust of the corset to now be too big! (A major miscalculation on my part!) >.< But I am leaving this mock up for a while so I can focus on obtain other aspects of the costume which will be bought and modded e.g. gloves, shirt, etc.
