I'm going to be making it is the Suicide Squad movie version a little bit different from her comic book outfit but this one consists of a pair of little sparkly blue and red booty shorts. She's got a sort of Raglan baseball type top some fishnet tights and then she's also got a pair of crazy insane boots and don't look comfortable at all so I'm gonna start with the shorts and for those I'm going to use two pairs of sequin booty shorts that I got online for $10 a piece so I'm going to cut both of these pairs in half and I'm gonna stick them together with my trusty hot glue and hopefully this is strong enough to keep my pants on. Alright so there are my half-and-half shorts now I'm going to reinforce that seam on the inside with some tape because I really don't want these to fall apart next I'm going to start on the shirt for that I'm using this white long-sleeve t-shirt that I got at the thrift store for 495 it's a little bit big so I'm going to have to take it in a bit so I'm just going to make a new seam using hot glue to make this a little bit smaller alright that's a much better fit.

I just need to cut it shorter and cut the sleeves a little shorter so there's my trim down shirt she has what looks like a sort of hand-painted red top on the shirt so I'm going to go ahead and do that using my trusty red spray paint this is the same floral paint that I used for my sailor moon boots because it does not crack are things that stretch so her left sleeve has a little bit of blue kind of smudged around on it. so I'm going to do that using some acrylic paint and my cutoff sleeve pieces as my smudging rag so the next step is to add the text on the shirt I'm first going to print out the image I'm going to put it inside the shirt and then I'm going to use that as a stencil to trace it onto the shirt with Sharpie you can see it just enough through the fabric to be able to trace. 

It so now I'm going to go ahead and mask off the stripes on the sleeve so that I can spray-paint them. So the next step is just to de-stress this dirty it up a little bit and make it look lived in I'm literally gonna go. Throw it in the dirt all right looks appropriately dirty so the next step are her crazy boots I got these at the third store they were twelve dollars. They're basically the right shape so I'm going to paint the heels red and the platform's here black and for that I'm going to use acrylic paint the next step. Is to cut out this weird little opening.

so I'm going to go ahead and cut that out and then paint the rest of the details. That's it for the paint for now so now. I'm going to seal up these edges with some black tape all right so now that those are all  taped up. I'm going to fake lace them with some shoelaces I got these at a convenience store for $2.
So there are also laces on the bottom  part of the shoes but they don't need to be functional so I'm just cutting and gluing some fake ones on so the last thing these boots need are some fake tongues and for that I'm going to use my trusty craft foam.

Boom knockoff adidas the next step is to make her choker which says puddin so I'm going to use craft foam once again and some metallic duct tape for the gold letters. Not bad all done with the choker so the last accessory I'm going to make is her belt which was given to me by Justin. He's apparently had this sitting around  knowing that one day he would need it for something and that day has come but I need to make a little Harlequin diamond belt buckle for it alright so. 

I'm going to make her shoulder gun holster and I'm just gonna use some black duct tape and kind of figure it out as I go along. All right so this gun came from Ben's stash of guns and I'm just gonna hit it with some white paint all right so the outfit is almost done but there's one last accessory that I need and Dustin is wearing it right now. We realized that his glove is almost identical to the one that she wears it's my sweet fingerless glove no big deal costume squad pro tip don't have an accessory steal it.

All right I also picked up these fishnet stockings for nine dollars online the outfit is complete so it is time to try it all on so here is the main costume. I've got my little tiny shorts on and time to add accessories. Just some jewelry that I already had goes with the look.

All right so the final step is a hair and makeup harley quinn makeup. I got this wig online it was $32 before I put it on I'm gonna take the time to do a full face of Harley Quinn makeup and I'm going to show the guys alright so I'm gonna do Harley Quinn's makeup she's got sort of the clown white face going on with some blue. and some pink eyeshadow cute little face tattoos I'm gonna start with some white cream base great thing about this makeup. 

She's a crazy person so it doesn't really have to look that good so now I'm gonna do my eyebrows for that I'm just gonna use a light brown eyebrow pencil since she does have brown eyebrows now it's time for eye shadow it's gonna be really messy and not blended and just sort of everywhere now I'm going to put on some false lashes just for a little bit of extra drama this part is gonna be really hard.  

Let's see if I can write on my face in the mirror there you go it only sort of looks like a five-year-old did it so now I have the very difficult task of giving myself an arm tattoo on my right arm so I get to do this with my left hand we'll see if it looks like I was attacked by a fourth grader with some crayons. We'll see how does anyone. 

All right so now that the makeup and all the tattoos are done I'm going to put the rest of the costume on and go show the guys all right here we go time to see Claire right finished hardly can't wait it's gonna be awesome scary.

Here comes Wow yes oh my gosh this is so awesome the boots are killer look at those. They're pretty intense those are some nice knockoffs the knockoff some kinda tainted Wow. It's for gun white her name is white yeah okay I got really lazy and only painted half the gun because it's gonna be in the holster but hey it's a white gun cool all right so how much did this end up costing me the whole thing
not counting the change on my holster was about $40 the wig was I think 30.

That's pretty good for that way cuz that's like the real thing right you didn't know I didn't it came this way no and then you thought about maybe just like spray-painting a blonde wig. Dude you could get a blonde wig that how can I have this on line then it looks awesome really completed.
