Margot Robbie set the standard but these Cosplayers have stepped it up as we take a look at the best Harley Quinn Cosplay collection from all over the world
The multiverse would be a much less lively place without the hijinks and shenanigans of the former Dr. Harleen Quinzel, the one and only Clown Princess of Crime.
Sometimes love can make people do crazy things. Other times? It drives them completely insane. Such is the case with Harley Quinn, formerly Dr. Harleen Quinzel. A promising psychologist and intern at Arkham Asylum in Gotham City, Harleen was given the chance to get up close and personal with the Joker, an experience that wound up ending…badly. Harleen became obsessed with her subject, and after falling madly in love with the Clown Prince of Crime, she helped him escape the asylum.
Her love for the Joker inspired Harleen to adopt a new identity, that of Harley Quinn, The Joker’s sidekick-slash-love interest—whether he wanted one or not. (Most of the time? He did not.)
In time, Harley came to realize the Joker was holding her back, and she struck out on her own. She became an entrepreneur and a member of several slightly less-than-reputable super teams (including the Suicide Squad), Gotham City’s all-girl gang (the Gotham City Sirens) and a traveling sideshow. Along the way Harley has become one of the most popular super-villains in the DC Universe, thanks in part to her versatility, charisma and cheery-but-deranged outlook on life.
After all, as Harley would say, if you’re going to go a little crazy, you may as well sit back and enjoy the ride! Now we take a look at the best Harley Quinn cosplays from some of the most popular and loved cosplayers that we have chosen.

The Creation of Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn was originally created for the cartoon Batman: The Animated Series by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm in 1992. She was originally only intended for the episode “Joker’s Favor,” however she became so popular over night that she made more appearances on the show and it’s various spin-offs and movies. She was also in the comics that were part of the same universe as the television show known as the DC Animated Universe (DCAU). There she first appeared in The Batman Adventures issue 12 (1993).
Harley was inspired by actress Arleen Sorkin, largely due to her character wearing a jester costume in an episode of Days of Our Lives. This is where Dini got some of the ideas for Harley’s costume and personality. The show even got the actress Arleen Sorkin to voice the character in the show and history was made.
She became so popular in fact that DC decided to bring her over into the mainstream DC universe. This Harley Quinn however lost some of the characteristics that made her so popular on the show and she was written as a much more psychotic dark character than she had been in the DCAU. Harley’s first comic book appearance in the continuity of the mainstream DC Universe was in Batman: Harley Quinn issue 1 (10/1999) which was written by Paul Dini.
