While the zany character takes the big screen by storm in her own feature film Birds of Prey, this cosplayer transformed herself into the ever-whimsical Harley Quinn just in time for the premiere.

Having been a companion to Joker throughout a number of DC films over the years, Harley Quinn takes center stage throughout her own slice of cinematic history in 2020’s Birds of Prey.

Set to release on February 7 throughout the United States, this authentic realization could dazzle cinema crowds as popular cosplayer Kalinka Fox looks more than ready for the upcoming Hollywood premiere.

Posing as the iconic figure throughout a recent photoshoot, Fox dons the Suicide Squad attire of Margot Robbie’s take on Harley Quinn. With red and blue streaks in her hair as well as her nails, every details has been taken into account.

Not to be taken lightly however, she comes wielding her trusty baseball bat, seemingly ready to strike down any who might stand in her way. 

Having just seen Harley’s latest adventure for herself, Fox offered up her own opinion, arguing the movie wasn’t perfect but still a necessary viewing for any DC fan. “Not so good, not so bad, but definitely must watch.”

The stunning Harley Quinn cosplay could make for a perfect superhero party costume.

This isn’t the first time Fox has applied her costume-designing talents to the character either, with Harley Quinn one of the staple costumes for the cosplayers throughout Fox’s social media presence. 

In another appearance as the Birds of Prey leader, Fox appeared as Quinn posing in jail, casually sips tea in her full costume during an earlier photoshoot.

Harley is evidently a favorite of hers, and there’s no denying that she strikes a very similar resemblance to the character.

With a female lead, backed by a predominantly female cast, and directed by Cathy Yan, Birds of Prey looks to make a statement at the dawn of a new decade.

Expect to see Harley Quinn cosplays in droves as the hype for the new DC film continues to ramp up ahead of its global release.

A remarkable cosplayer has flexed her sharp costume skills with a meticulous recreation of Yennefer from The Witcher 3, looking every bit the part of the powerful sorceress.

The Witcher experienced a sweeping success as a game, particularly its most recent third installment, thanks to its rich medieval-inspired world-building, fantasy elements, and complex character relationships.

The TV adaptation that was released on Netflix in 2019 scooped up a new wave of fans who, despite not having played the game previously, fell in love with the world it portrayed, leading the show to go on and trump huge names like The Mandalorian in terms of demand.

Yennefer is one of the story’s main female protagonists. A cold character with a dark past, she captivated fans with her enchanting aesthetic, as well as her complexity of character.

The franchise soared in popularity after the release of the third game, and then the Netflix series took it to another level.

Thanks to the intricacy of the outfits featured in both the game and the show, it remains a rather difficult feat to pull off an accurate cosplay, but DariaSol managed to recreate Yennefer down to the fine details, in a beautifully atmospheric shot.

Her hair is impossibly voluminous, matching Yennefer’s thick black curls that cascade down her shoulders and back. Also, an exact replica is her thick black choker-necklace with a circular medallion that sits between her collarbones.

DariaSol has opted for a beautiful off the shoulder look, a bardot black blouse with the arms wrapped in an intricate ribbon, overlaid with a black corset. This is paired with leather gloves that she is putting on in the photograph.

She sports what appear to be thigh-high boots and socks, with a small gap between that and some shorts. This has then been covered with a skirt that has a wide slit in the side, giving the outfit that extra dimension.

Dario Sol looks like she could drop right into The Witcher universe, her Yennefer recreation looking just as enchanting as her in-game and in-series counterparts.
