Circus Acrobat Harley Quinn Costume

I really wanted to emphasize Harley's playful quality with this costume. With her being a clown and a gymnast, the circus acrobat theme seemed a natural fit.

Black and garnet acetate taffeta. Cotton twill lining and interfacing in the corset; steel bones and busk. Nylon tulle for the petticoat.

I am interested in going as Harley Quinn for Wizard Con in New Orleans and I think this would be perfect. Are you still making this? If so, how much would it be sold for?

Yes, I've seen that too. I think we were drawing from the same influences, since my great love is the Victorian era.

I'm staring at this in awe.
You are truly a fantastic artist and seamstress! I only wish I had the money to order a version of this dress from you in August. I might try to start a savings just for a version of this dress. I'm quite a fan of Harley Quinn, especially since we share the same name ;) and this costume is the best representation of her that I've ever seen. I'm still amazed, speechless even. The idea is fantastic and you've executed it so well... GAH!
