Harley Quinn Header.jpg

 

Dr. Harleen Quinzel, better known as Harley Quinn from the DC/Batman Universe, is the posterchild of a classic love story gone way wrong. And with a past that’s tangled and disturbing enough to give The Silence of the Lambs a run for its money, there’s no wonder why countless cosplayers and comic readers favor this unlikely antihero for their Comic-Con or Halloween costume. An ex-Gotham City University gymnast and ex-Arkham Asylum psychiatric intern turned murderous supervillainess, Harley Quinn hit the scene in the early ‘90s as an extra (an afterthought, really) on Batman: The Animated Series before evolving into a cautionary tale of what a “wicked attraction” can cost a girl in Gotham.

 

Sometimes funny, other times rather sad, Harley Quinn’s descent into madness is one riddled with makeovers, costume changes, and all around reimaginings that even the most devout comic enthusiasts may have missed along the way. So whether you are following the media frenzy surrounding 2016’s Suicide Squad or can’t stop playing the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham Knight, Harley Quinn’s sordid past is one trip into madness that fans can’t resist and neither can we! Track her beginning in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series to countless appearances in solo comics, video games, and big titles like Suicide Squad, Gotham City Sirens, and the storylines from the New 52, as we follow the corpse riddled path of the Clown Prince of Crime’s first lady and puddin’ pop, Harley Quinn.

Suicide Squad Throwbacks

 

Is it just us or is the buzz surrounding Suicide Squad something extra-special? Sure, there have been a few examples of other movies creating this kind of excitement so far out from their release. But 2016’s highly anticipated anti-hero film seems like it's been hard to miss if you’ve even spent only a few minutes trolling the geekosphere in recent months. The attention around David Ayer's upcoming film, which is set in the DC Comics universe, started with the “leaked” images and a meme stampede in the wake of images of Jared Leto’s tattoo-laden Joker. That was quickly followed by an all-around collective gasp at the unveiling of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Then the rest of the star-studded cast, including the likes of Will Smith, Ben Affleck as Batman, and Cara Delevingne, just kept feeding the buzz and here we are today. Here to feed the beast some more!

Costumes-for-your-Minion-Costume.jpg

 

YES! Only two weeks left until our favorite yellow henchmen return to the big screen in the new Minions movie! We first fell in love with these tiny troublemakers after the release of the first Despicable Me movie in 2010, and over the past five years we have laughed tirelessly, watching their silly monkey Minion business play out on film.

One little known nuance of Minions was that if they appeared in daylight, they were supposed to be in costume. Since that fact was never officially announced, it hasn't been followed to the letter - but we still see many Minions appear in costumes throughout the films. In fact, this has become one of the easiest ways to distinguish some of the characters! So, if you have been able to reuse your Minion costume for the last five Halloweens, but want something a little different this year, we came up with 10 costume ideas for your Minion costume. Do you want to be Kevin the golfer, Carl the fire alarm, or Stuart dressed as Lucy? Take a look and see what costumes and accessories can help you transform your same old Minion costume into something new this year!
