26th May 2012: So I finally decided on which boots to buy They're thigh high black boots with no heel so hopefully will be okay to wonder round expos in if I decide to take the costume to an expo. They're available in red if I decide to cosplay Harley with different coloured boots. But I need to check they fit and I'm thinking I need to save money. I'm still waiting for my top to arrive and the skirt I was gonna get is now out of stock. There are 2 other pleated skirts I have my eye on but they might be very short and one's very expensive for what it is! I had a thought about where I can find one so I'll check there first.
23rd May 2012: Corset arrival! My corset has arrived and it's lovely! Not strictly true to the game but this is my interpretation. I also may have had an interesting idea about the hair but I'll let you know how that goes!
21st May 2012: Harley Qinn bra I may have found a solution to my Harley Quinn bra problem without having to buy anything else. I was looking at cutting together 2 bikini tops but finding the same top in red and black was proving difficult and/or expensive. I bought 2 bras, one red one black, from Ann Summers because the fit is good and I needed new bras. But then I had a thought, what if I just wore them both at the same time, just cross them over in the middle to give one red one black without cutting up a brand new bra. And it actually works, luckily it's plunged enough in the middle to allow cross over and keeping it fitting. I'll have to see how it looks with the top before I decide if it's ok or not. And a second opinion would be great!
21st May 2012: Gogo boots or Suede over the knee boots? Or just get some punky black boots and not worry about having different coloured boots? I want to make this look good without spending a small fortune, but will I ever wear red boots again? I dunno! Eurgh! Need to decide at some point!
Oh I also have been thinking of hair ideas, mine's quite short so I need hair extensions for my lucy cosplay, but I may be able to use them for the pigtails if i put them in the other way? Hmmm we'll see! Other options are clip in pigtails but we'll see!
18th May 2012: A solid start! I'm using a bit of artistic license and doing the arkham asylum version but in black and red, rather than blue and red. It's easier! And black's a more traditional harley colour anyway! I have most of the top part sorted! Underbust corset and white top with nurses hat. I've found a black and red bra cover thing but its not in stock at the mo. I also need white skirt, belt and boots but I have plenty of time. I just had an opportunity to get the top cheap! Thought I might as well get it!
