Would have loved to see her original outfit in Batman #13. Sadly, that did not happen.

Re-watch BTAS and New Adventures and read the comic additions to those shows if you want to see her in her original costume.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk but this "If you don't like it read the old stuff" response (which is far, far too common on this site) is quite rude and just out of place.

It's one thing to respectfully disagree and state one's opinion but people seem to have a tendency around here to just state "This is how it is now, get over it and read the old stuff." Perhaps people DO read the classic things that they enjoy but would also like to read new things that are IN LINE WITH history.

If Batman one day was retconned and turned into a villain and the Joker the hero he fights then would we be telling people "This is how it is. Read the old stuff if you don't like it." No. Because some people liked the way it was and have a right to that opinion as well as a right to claim that the changes made were not to their liking.

I'm not ignorant to the fact that changes need to be made over the years or things will get stale. I agree with and understand that. But to say "Nope, get over it" when one states that they're not a fan of the direction of the change is immature and rude. And quite frankly I'm sick of hearing it.

Yep, and it gives a bad name to people who like The New 52.

so far the only new costume i really dont like is power girl, everything else is adapting to change and being more modern which is great.

I hate her new look with a passion. She looks like some little Vamp girl, or some goth girl cosplaying. From there she really isn't the Harley I know and love at all anyway.

This is Harley Quinn

I just want to see her do acrobatics in the new outfit. Some how I don,t think its gonna work out.

Not sure why not.

Short shorts work,

Long socks work,

Shoes are fine,

The only potential problem is the mini corset.

Size of it would not interfere with her arms , so the only threat is .....falling off.

Which depending on tightness would`nt be an issue.

If anything the long drooping jesters hat including or excluding bells would be far worse.

As would a loose fitting puffy costume.

I did love her original costume, but hell she looks so freakin good in the new costume! I mean by god! words don't describe how much more hot she has gotten so it's like adding a hundred for the before this costume then adding a second hundred for the new one

Because as we all know, how hot a character is is the only thing that matters, and all characters should be stripped down to next to nothing.

@Ravager4: YES! See thank you for agreeing! Hahaha no sorry i know i sounded terribly stupid, but I have always just found Harley Quinn to be terribly beautiful and awesome, so the new costume kinda sent those feelings through the roof........i'm only human :P :)

Not all characters should be stripped to nothing but the 1990's cartoon origin of HQ led her to not quite fit in stylistically with twenty first century comic style.

Based on the saturday morning cartoon outfit joker wore in the tv series, he would look out of place in todays continuity as well.

Harley's old costume rocked and they had to give her a corset. A corset I tell you. Love the blue and red shoes and socks (not the color itself but the fact that the shoes have been swapped round so she's wearing blue socks with red shoes and vice versa). Think it's kind of awesome.

You know really they could have made an entirely new character for the New 52 Harley. Instead of revamping her entirely and calling her Harley they could have made that unrecognizable blue and red costume (really these colors clash, what were they thinking?) belong to a new character, and they could have done new things with her, and then they could just not touch Harley or keep her how she originally was. I can understand revamping because the stories got old and the characters needed to be modernized, but Harley is a fairly new character in the DC world. She didn't NEED to be updated, revamped, and redesigned, because everything about her was already modern and there was never a whole lot about her in the comics as it was. Nobody had a chance to get tired of her old design before they turned it into an awful Halloween costume. Her background and design were revamped too soon in my opinion.

Sex sells, and that's the only reason Harley was changed.

She needed outfit stand out from being a member of the Joker the new outfit was a failed but the answer is not go back. She needs another outfit how the brave and the bold version or something to get based on. What is the outfit that suppose be a jester. The makeup and hair work short shorts is ok but the brassier not working. here is challenge for someone to perform.

No Caption Provided

@TheCrowbar: they have Powergirl, Starfire and Catwoman for that. there are more examples so her outfit needs stand out and that is not working

@TheCrowbar: compared to the others perhaps I should have said that in the end of the sentence. which ask ask the question again how should her new outfit be to stick from not being with Joker.

I fully understand her jester costume might be a bit dated and she's due for an upgrade. But the new 52 costume looks so damn over the top and gothic. If Harley needd a new style, I would have taken the Arkham City look without question.
