|Harley Quinn in the animated series and her makeover for the Arkham Asylum game|
Her background of falling in love with the Joker while analysing him at Arkham, inspiring her change from the psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel to the insane criminal Harley Quinn complete with jester outfit, is probably a big part of why I think she's one of the best characters in Batman. Don't all wannabe forensic psychologists dream of having their heart stolen by a sociopathic criminal?! (Just me? Ok...)
Harley's naivete regarding her relationship with the Joker and quirky comments adds humour to the games, which are otherwise quite dark like Christopher Nolan's interpretation of the films. Plus who doesn't love a badass female who can handle a gun but simultaneously just wants to spend time with her Puddin'?
This is my awesome necklace I got from Geekropology on Etsy the other day and I love it. What with Halloween coming up it's made me really want to put together a Harley Quinn outfit, complete with my boyfriend as the Joker. We've dressed up as Batman and Batgirl for a party previously, but I think this pairing would be even more fun. I think I'd go more for her look in Arkham Asylum - the outfit below would be perfect!

One of these eye makeup looks would be great too if I didn't feel like wearing a face caked in makeup or a mask.
