If Comic-Con 2016 is anything to go by then this year we’ll be seeing a whole lot of Suicide Squad Halloween costumes, especially Margot Robbie’s version of Harley Quinn.
Although superheroes are great to dress up as when you’re a kid there’s something fun about dressing up as a super villain that many adults enjoy and that’s where these Suicide Squad costumes come into their own.
The looks that the 2016 blockbuster movie has brought to these characters have given them a punkish street edge look that I think is awesome so let’s have a look at some of these super villains.
The main Suicide Squad characters are The Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Katana & Croc Killer. Dress up as any member of the squad or use this as a great idea for a group costume.
Suicide Squad Joker Costume
Jared Leto brings the Joker to life in the 2016 Suicide Squad movie and apparently while filming he stayed in character and even scared Scott Eastward a little bit (with Dirty Harry as your dad I’m thinking that’s not an easy thing to do!)
The key to this costume is very pale skin, green hair and some pretty out there tattoos which have already caused the internet to melt as fans reactions have not been in favor of the tattoos.
The costume above includes the red shirt, jacket and pants, but you’ll also need to get a green wig and address those tattoos. If you have a quick look on youtube you’ll see that some people have very successfully recreated the Joker’s pale skin and crazy tattoos, but if you want an easier way to get the look we’ve got you covered with a set of temporary tattoos.
Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Costume
In the movie Harley Quinn moves from her cartoonish red and black traditional costume to a punkier version of Harley Quinn with the combination of red and blue instead. She also sports a pretty nifty baseball bat – what’s with villains and baseball bats?
She still has her pigtails which I think she carries off really well so let’s have a look at Harley Quinn 2016 Suicide Squad version!
This costume kit includes the jacket and shirt, to pull off the complete look you’ll also need to do the hair in her cute blonde pigtails with the pink and blue dye on alternate pigtails. Some of her jewelry would also add to the look along with the kick ass shoes she wears.
Let’s not forget her baseball bat adorned with the words Good Night!
If you prefer some of Harley Quinn’s other costumes then check out her reinventions from classic Harley to Suicide Squad at Harley Quinn Halloween Costumes.
Suicide Squad Deadshot Halloween Costume
Brought to life by Will Smith in the 2016 movie Deadshot is decked out in red and black as you can see in the official licensed costume below –
All you need to add is some black combat boots and you’ve got a great Suicide Squad costume.
Suicide Squad Katana Costume
The Suicide Squad’s martial arts master is none other than Katana and if you want to pull off her costume I’ve found a great costume kit for you below –
This costume kit includes the jacket with attached shirt and Katana’s mask. Complete the outfit by adding a pair of black trousers and a Katana wig (unless, of course you can style your hair like hers).
Killer Croc Suicide Squad Halloween Costume
Another member of the squad is Killer Croc, born Waylon Jones he has a genetic disorder which causes his skin to look like it belongs on a reptile. After killing his aunt he joined a travelling circus under the name of Killer Croc and the rest is super villain history.
Now I’m sure if you’re a make up artist or special effects guru you could recreate the look of Killer Croc’s skin for Halloween, but for mere mortals like myself there are masks available. This costume kit includes both a mask and gloves along with his jacket and attached hoodie so all you need to add is a pair of jeans and you have the perfect Killer Croc costume for this Halloween.
Whether you dress up as your favorite member of the Suicide Squad or something different this Halloween I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these costume ideas with me, personally I love the new ‘take no prisoners’ Harley Quinn look.
