If there is one costume that will dominate this Halloween, it's going to be Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. And if you were thinking about going as Harley, we don't blame you. It's an amazing look. 

But you're going to have a lot of competition, so you're gonna need to step up your cosplay game. To achieve that, you might want some extra help, so let us introduce you to the 'DIY Costume Squad' who have made a video breaking down every step to get a really realistic Harley Quinn costume on the cheap.

They go in with the detail, including how to make the red and blue hot pants.

The whole costume cost under $40 and most of the costume was found items from the thrift store. The wig was bought seperately but, as they say in the video, there is nothing stopping you buying a cheap blonde wig and spray painting it yourself.
