We Have 7 New Fantabulous Harley Quinn Outfits — So Ditch The “Daddy’s Little Monster” Costume

There was a time when you couldn't open your eyes on Halloween without glimpsing at least three hot pants-wearing Harley Quinns. Your local weather lady, a kid trick or treating, and probably at least two people at any party you chose to go to were probably inspired by the now notorious red spandex-heavy Daddy's Little Monster costume that the character wore in Suicide Squad

So we can understand if you another Harley Quinn costume story and thought, Come on? What year is this? Why do you hate both fashion and originality? But we are here to deliver some good news: Thanks to the majesty of Cathy Yan's brilliant Birds of Prey — and the incredible costume designs of Erin Benach — there are now a whole wardrobe of beautiful, fashionable, and easy-to-recreate Harley Quinn outfits for you to explore and enjoy this spooky season. 

From jean shorts and self-scrawled-on shirts to glamorous gold jumpsuits, there's a Harley look for every level of effort and elegance. We've selected six here that showcase the spectrum of anti-heroine fashion and just how much better women (or, as Harley would say, badass broads) in movies look when they're dressed and directed by women rather than crafted as pinups to sell posters to teenage boys. 

Halloween is a time for frights, costumes, and fun, but this year is a little different. You can still do all of those things, but please make sure to practice proper social distancing measures, avoid large gatherings, and remember every costume is best paired with a mask. Refinery29 is your one-stop Halloween shop when it comes to ways to celebrate safely. Enjoy!

Harley Quinn's Cozy Breakup Outfit




If you're looking for something that's both easy to put together and will keep you warm, then this is perfect. All you need is a pink onesie with hearts on it. Accessorize with can of cheese whiz and a giant size plastic tub of cheese puffs. Cute and you'll have snacks in case you get hungry!

Harley Quinn's Sequined Club Outfit




This is one of the best looks from any superhero movie, let alone just Birds of Prey. Start with a striking sequined jacket, throw a sheer star shirt over your fave bikini top, and slip into some striped pants. You'll also need some black lipstick and an eyeliner pen to draw some perfectly sassy stars on your face.

Harley Quinn's Morning After Fringe Jacket Outfit



Bust out those jean shorts — if you don't have any you can grab these official Birds of Prey ones — and a velvet pink sports bra or crop top. The coat is the most iconic thing here so you can either go for any big tasseled jacket, or go for a movie accurate version. Feeling brave? Add some color to your hair.

The Harley Fuckin' Quinn Outfit




For one of the most chill Harley looks, all you really need here are some fabric markers, so you can write "Harley Fucking Quinn" all over a white t-shirt. Then grab a pair of star printed jean shorts, a pair of neon orange suspenders, and some classic Harley Quinn red lipstickPhoto: C Barius/DC/Warner Bros/Kobal/Shutterstock.

Harley Quinn's Golden Overalls Outfit




If you're ready to kick the stuffing out of some bad guys, then go for this shiny vibe. The key here are the gold overalls, and the official costume version is probably your best bet if you don't want to spend serious cash. Add a pink cropped tank, a chunky chain necklace, and you'll be good to go. Add a slash of Ruby Woo red lipstick for extra attitude. Photo: C Barius/DC/Warner Bros/Kobal/Shutterstock.

Harley Quinn's Blue Blazer Emancipated Woman Outfit



Harley's final look as she drives off into the sunset (you can spot a glimpse at about the 1:25 mark in the trailer) is a great business casual costume. Silver leggings are the perfect base for this one. Harley rocks a to die for blazer too — there are replicas available — but any bright blue or patterned blazer style jacket works. And the perfect finishing touch is a pair of red jeweled sunglasses.

Harley Quinn Roller Derby Outfit



It's probably not the most practical outfit for socially distanced Halloween, but you can grab a red leotard to throw over a long sleeve black tee, with fishnet tights (over regular tights, if it's chilly) and black and yellow knee highs. The priciest part of the costume is the skating gear, so if you don't have your own you may want to select another Harley look but these skates and this helmet should do the trick. (We do not recommend drilling pigtail holes in your helmet — maybe stick with the low pigtails for this one.) Photo: C Barius/DC/Warner Bros/Kobal/Shutterstock.
