Harley Quinn seems to be everywhere at this 12 months’ Comic-Con. If you wander the display ground for even a couple of minutes, you’re essentially certain to go a Quinn cosplayer — in all probability dressed in Margot Robbie’s tattered Suicide Squad-design and style getup.

It is really a casual gathering of cosplayers who meet up with at Every Conference for an occasion termed Harleypalooza, which requires getting as a lot of Quinns together as is possible and taking lots of menacing and goofy group pics.
For attendees, Harleypalooza is basically a justification to obtain jointly and discuss a personality they all appreciate. “I think It can be her freedom and her enjoy of enjoyable,” claims DesiRée Preston, who’s dressed as Quinn from the DC Animated Universe and arranged this year’s meetup. “I imagine that speaks to a lot of women and fellas. One thing about her is pure and harmless, Although she’s a psychopathic clown.”
It is simple to imagine Quinn’s acceptance peaking around Suicide Squad, but Preston states there are lots of motives the character’s popularity has actually been expanding, which include her New 52 sequence from a few years back again as well as Arkham video games.
“Persons ask, ‘Would you despise viewing other Harleys?'” Preston claims. “No, it’s remarkable. Regardless of the version, most of us have a little something in typical.”
