aldo-vallon - November 1, 2018
Every now and then there is a costume that comes out of Hollywood that is sure to be an instant classic. The ‘70s had Michael Myers. The ‘80s had Slave Leia. The ‘90s had Scream. And now most recently we were given Harley Quinn. One didn’t have to be a psychic to know that desperate women would be turning themselves into Margot Robbie for years to come.
I intentionally say that these women are trying to resemble Margot on purpose. The character of Harley Quinn has been around for a couple decades now, but it wasn’t until a mediocre movie came out that women started rushing to put their hair up in pony tails (Baby Spice cosplayers excluded). I guess Harley is a lot like Bane in that way. No one cared who she was until she pulled out her ass.
Trying to pick my favorite incarnation out of this lineup of little monsters is tough to do. Since this is Halloween, a day known for indulging the sweet tooth, I’m going to refuse to choose and instead try to take all of them home. It might lead to a cavity or two, but I wasn’t planning on having my teeth for much longer anyway.
