GUYS. THIS IS THE POST I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL MONTH (well…actually since I ordered our costumes back in August). It is my styling of Harley Quinn and Joker couple costume!! We knew immediately this is what we were going to be this Halloween after seeing Suicide Squad (comic book nerds say what you will. I LOVED suicide squad. And Harley is my spirit animal). We knew it would be an insanely popular Halloween costume this year but we didn’t care because in 10 years (heck, tomorrow) when I look back to how much fun we had dressing up and taking these pictures, I won’t care. So take that mainstream media! ANYWHO. If you are looking for a semi-simple couples costume idea with makeup + costume tips, you are in the right place. Keep reading, good people of the internet!
Harley Quinn and Joker Couple Costume
Step One: Get your Harley on.
I <3 Harley. She is sassy, smart, and pretty much the biggest BA super villain woman. I mean, who doesn’t want to be her this year?! Her costume is fun, easy to replicate and will definitely turn some heads.
**DISCLAIMER** I know this is not an exact replica of the Harley Quinn costume from the movie. I prefer to keep myself on the modest side and bootie shorts and fish nets just didn’t do it for me. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest if you choose to do the exact version, I still think I rocked the look! 🙂
For Harley’s makeup look, I used Buxom’s custom eye palette with the pink and blue shades I had in there (for the exact colors check out this post). I got my eyeshadow brush wet and just went to town on my eyes. I then topped it with a winged liner and drew in the heart and ROTTEN tattoo on my face. Smudge up some red lipstick and you are gold. The best part about this look is it is supposed to be messy so go crazy.
I finished the looked with a spray of blue + pink temporary hair dye from the Halloween store and voila! Harley Quinn: Suicide Squad QUEEN.
Step Two: Ask me how I got these scars.
Guys. For real. I have the world’s coolest husband. Not ONLY does he humor me when I say “let’s get dressed up today and go take pictures in an alley” but he also lets me put eyeliner and lipstick on him so he looks the part. I love this man.
BUT BACK TO JOKER: This is easy. Put on some pale makeup (I put a VERY thin layer of white cream foundation on Adam), smudged up some black eyeliner, wrote “damaged” on his forehead and topped it off with red lipstick. BAM. Joker.
Don’t forget to spray on some green hair dye to really make it look authentic.
Step Three: Find an empty alley and beg your photographer to pretty please come take pictures of your Halloween costumes if you promise to bring her candy.
Michelle. You the REAL MVP. She makes us look more beautiful than we really are I swear. But actually she was the one who found this alley and it was perfect. We laughed, posed and then went back home and hung out in our costumes like the social butterflies we are. 🙂
Don’t forget to pin your favorites pictures for inspiration later 😉 !!
There you have it, friends. My version of Harley Quinn and Joker couple costume!! We had SO MUCH FUN getting dressed up and taking these pictures. Halloween is my favorite, guys. I am SURE you can tell that I don’t mess around when it comes to this holiday but…it is less than a week away and I cannot even deal. I am struggling with the fact that there won’t be any trick or treaters at our door this year 🙁
BUT ON THE BRIGHT SIDE. Adam and I just bought tickets for the local Haunted Zip Line this weekend and I could not be more thrilled. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Thanks for stopping by, as always, and I hope to see you back soon!

Ok, you are officially my favorite couple now. How adorable is that?? I love your costumes and your make up. Your husband is a rock star for doing all of this with you.
Thank you!!! He definitely is… LOL
Totally pulling it off and I love the switch-out of leggings for the booty shorts! The hair is my fav!
OMG I love these … you are soooo creative and beautiful and such a cool couple. <3 <3 <3
WOW! I absolutely love it. You two look great and I LOVE your take on it. This could be easily brought into the office. The make up on you both are incredible and I am LOVING the purple velvet blazer.

This just looks so stinkin fun! I haven’t seen suicide squad, but I’d definitely say you did the characters justice. Love this post, and love that y’all got to do it together!
My husband definitely is a great sport and he makes everything that much more fun!
Alright – enough being so super cutey in all your Halloween makeup and outfits! I dont even know what I’m going to be. I know… pathetic on my part! haha… Love how chic you are for Halloween!!! Inspiring me, girl!
I am not sure who’s costume I like the best. I loved your photos and then as I kept looking I began to love the Joker costume. They are both so great!
Thanks Cynthia!! We had a bunch of fun!
You both look amazing! I love how simple this is too! So cute!
Omg. Your man is brave and awesome and wonderful. You guys look fantastic!!
You and Joker look awesome. Harley Quinn is one of my favorite characters from the cartoon versions I’ve seen. I haven’t seen Suicide Squad yet but I love your modest version of Harley! This year my sons, hubby and I are dressing as Hah, Leia, Chewy, Poe and Kylo but I bet I could convince my Superhubby to do the villains of Batman one year! 🙂
Thank you so much!!! Your family costume sounds SO CUTE!
What a fun Halloween idea!
You look just like Margot Robbie! Such a cute couples idea!

You both look fabulous! It’s so simple, yet you both look great. These are wonderful ideas for Halloween.
Great costume idea! Love all the details and how closely you compare to the movie characters!
You guys seriously rocked those costumes! I absolutely LOVED Suicide Squad – so much so that we went and saw it twice. I think that they did an amazing job and the acting was incredible.
We LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!! Thank you!!!
That’s an awesome costume and you guys both nailed it! I love the whole Harley look because it’s not too revealing. It’s perfect!
Thank you so much!!!
To freaking awesome!!! You did a great job on your make up! I love how you put your own twist to it.
Y’all looks great!! These are wonderful costumes!! Your husband is a trooper!!!

Coming Up Roses
I feel really good about that. We made it into a movie poster and plan on framing it sooooo

What a beautiful costume both of you are so nice and I like Harley quinn costumes.
These are such fun outfits, seen so many going at Harley and the Joker this year. Styled these costumes so well and done the makeup/tattoos really good to!
You guys look amazing! What a great job on the makeup and just the whole style!
AHHMAZING!!! WOW, you two look GREAT!
Last year my oldest daughter was the Joker, my son was Batman, and my youngest daughter was Harley Quinn (not the Suicide Squad version). I hate to admit this, but I haven’t started their costumes for this year.
Thanks so much!!!! 🙂 There is still time LOL
What a fabulous costume and make up! Love the simple steps you’ve to explain on how to apply the make up. By the way, you guys are a gorgeous couple.
Thank you SO much Rose!!!
Great job and the pics are super cute! You two really did a fantastic job on the costumes.

Your attention to detail on each costume is impressive. I think you’ve captured both characters so well.
I love this!! I’m dying for my husband to do a couple costume like this! It would be so much fun! One of these years I’ll convince him!
Ahhhhh I am obsessed with this!! You two made the most perfect Harley and Joker!! I absolutely love your interpretation of her costume – I would most definitely rock this more modest version. Your makeup (and his) is SO point. Kudos to your husband for going along with the shoot and getting nicely in character! These photos turned out incredible! Hope you have the most amazing Halloween! Thanks for all your fun Halloween posts and tutorials! ^^
Thank you SO MUCH Amanda!!! I hope you have the best Halloween!!!
This was really cool reading and awesome pictures too. This look is perfect for Halloween, both of you look awesome in Harley and Joker custom!!
These are so fun! We are strictly princesses and super mario bros this year, but I think as the kids get older we will definitely branch out more.
Omg how cute did these come out?!?! Great job!! I bet y’all were a total hit of any costume parties you went to
I’ve never even heard of Harley Quin until recently. You totally rocked the look! What a great costume!
You look AMAZING in this costume!! You really put the look together perfectly. Hope you had a fun Halloween!
The Harley Quinn costume is amazing. I have just order a Harley Quinn silk jacket online, looking forward to it anxiously!
