My 30th is coming up soon and to celebrate it I will be having a Fantasy Rouge party. Pretty much people will be coming as a favourite cartoon character but putting a ‘moulin rouge’ twist on it. I have decided to put a twist on one of my favourite female characters…Harley Quinn.
Harley Quinn is a fictional character and a villain in the DC Universe and is most well known as the psychotic love interest of the “Joker”.
Harley’s first ever appearance was in the “Batman: The Animated Series” on September 11, 1992, the episode ‘Joker’s Favor’. Originally Joker was supposed to jump out of a cake as a distraction to capture and take a group of Gotham police officers hostage. However the writers and creators thought that this may seem too bizarre, even for the Joker. So sidekick “Harley Quinn” was made, although the Joker ended up jumping out of the cake himself. Harley was originally created just as a walk-on part, but soon become a popular character in her own right.
Harley Quinn became fascinated with the Joker while working as his psychiatrist after becoming intrigued by his crazy motives. Joker, knowing of Harley’s past having a mother who constantly calls her young daughter “evil, a con-man for a father and a dead beat brother. The Joker uses this information on Harley to gain her sympathy. This eventually works and dressing up as Harley Quinn, she helps the Joker escape Arkham Asylum.
During my studies one of our projects was to create a Wikispace…Please check the link to view my creation on Harley Quinn:
