Katie rose to 9gag fame with her cosplay shoot of Harley Quinn some time ago. So when she started working as a model in Manila (thanks to LVX Talent Management), we just had to do something along the same lines. So cosplay was the theme for my second shoot with Katie.
I got the bikini from the DC booth in SDCC last year knowing it was the same costume used in this comic book cover. That Suicide Squad version has been to used and abused ever since the movie came out, so to deviate a bit we went for the comic book inspired bikini design.
Since Katie was already dolled up as Harley, we pressed with the idea further and thought of putting the Harley look various situations.
This last bit was out of the original plan. There was a plaid shirt lying around the studio, and Rosie the Riveter got in mind. Characters such as Harley (and by extension the Joker), can impersonate other notable characters, spoofing them in a sense. So yeah, we tried experimenting with the Harley look making a parody out of Rosie.
I know I’ve posted this before but better to accompany it with the end-result photos.
