CraftingCon: Villains: Batman's Harley Quinn {2014 Halloween Throwback}

What to do for Halloween?!? It's that time of year again and I have some costume inspiration for you!

Pulling this post from the past! This is my middle monkey about 3 years ago!! Not the costumes this year, though the baby can for sure wear it!

You can check out the whole bunch and our costumes on the Batman Themed Costumes post!

I'm Jessi, and I blog over at The Berry Bunch! Thanks so much for having me share some inspiration for costume, villain design! I am so excited to share with you the costume for baby girl this Halloween. Crafting Con has been such a fun event! Check out my July competition post for Star Wars here.

Our costumes always center around a theme and this year little man picked Batman. So what to do for baby girl? The hubby suggested she be Harley Quinn. Why not? And, it fits in perfectly with this month! We may not have a joker in our group, but when Harley Quinn is this cute, who needs a joker?

For the Harley Quinn outfit I used Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop's Aloha Burn Blocker. Baby girl is a funny size, 12-month length with 6-month width. My little skinny minny. I extended the shorts to be pants and moved the zipper to the back and color blocked. Instead of neck binding hubby and I (it was a team effort) drafted the collar and used a minky.

The hat is a basic hood pattern that I just sewed the seam until it was fairly tight fitting. Then added the jester/horns stuffed with poli-fil. and attached the ends under the chin. She did not like it at first, but I think she likes the feeling of the jester/horns bouncing as she runs! She would not stand still for pictures!
