This is a set I did pretty much right after I had the idea for the 'Arkham' spin on my customs.

The woman only known as Harley Quinn is obsessed with cutting herself and all sorts of pain, for her and all the people around. If she's not shooting someone (preferably in the face) she breaks out her medical instruments and wreaks havok on anyone not running fast enough. "Rearranging the facial expression to show more happiness" is what she calls it... The Joker is in love. Her makeup mimics the Jokers, but done in broad strokes of eyeliner and lipstick.

The Harley was made from a Matrix Switch figure, I liked the overall appearance of the figure, especially the shoes and the shirt. The design overall is 'understated' as it should be in the Nolan-verse, I think. The medical gloves are originally the hands of the Trinity figure that also supplied the head.

The Joker uses Spider-Man Norman Osbournes arms (and I honestly was too lazy to paint the shirts pattern on) but since he's only seen out of focus, maybe noone notices...

The fun part was giving them all these funny toys you see in the background of the second and third image. Some based on the Dark Knight film and others for good measure. Equipped like this the pair is ready for a hot night in town.

All painted with Citadel colors and sealed.

Hope you enjoy?

I'm diggin' it. I don't think the hat and mask would work too well in a live action movie. Pretty cool work, man.

I don't know...the design looks too much like a female Joker. Which is probably what you were going for. But I don't think it really works. I understand the idea behind it. That Harley is obsessed with the Joker so it would sort of make sense for her to copy his appearance. But, along with the bio you came up for her, takes away from her sort of having her own identity. I like the costume. But personally, I would have gone with white makeup with black lipstick and a black domino mask to more resemble the character without going too over-the-top since this is based on Nolan's Batman universe.
