When the first photos of Harley Quinn were revealed, some people on the internet wonder why she wasn’t in her iconic court jestor costume. Well for those who haven’t read a Harley Quinn comic book probably didn’t know her Suicide Squad costume was inspired by the books.
Harley Quinn actually goes through more costume changes than most DC Comics characters, so there are so many they could have chose from.
According to Margot Robbie in an interview with Hello Giggles:
“We tried on every variation of the costume. I cannot emphasize enough how many outfits, and how many variations of the Harley Quinn costume we tried. We tried the court jester costume, we tried the corset and skirt, we tried leather pants, we tried literally every type of costume possible for her. I really love where we ended up. And who knows, maybe in the sequels we’ll go with the court jester one. I think there’s a world of possibilities.”
So there you have it from the “Harley Quinn” herself.
