Description

My halloween costume. I decided not to make the catsuit that Harley usually wears, and made a dress instead. I didn’t use a pattern, and the hood was by far the hardest part. Took me about 3 days to make, overall. I hand sewed all the diamonds on (there are some on the rear, too, but I don’t have a pic of the back right now. I’ll get one up later)
I ended up not having enough time to make her wrist ruffles, but I did get gloves made.
Next year (if I use this again) I’m painting the mask on, since this one kept slipping and sliding, even after it was tightened.

Material Notes

Red, White, and Black knit/spandex
Pom poms for the hood and neckpiece

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Fantastic costume! It’s nice to see Harley in a skirt. _

    If you want to wear the mask, you can use eyelash adhesive or sock glue to make it stick: the eyelash is made for your face, so it’s not harsh, but it’s hard to get off. The sock glue is also gentle, but it’s water soluble, so I’m not sure if it would do well on the face. it does just fine everywhere else, and has the benefit of being easy to remove.
