Cosplay Sat. Harley Quinn – choosing the right hammer



one of my fav versions of her costume do you agree?

Hello Universe, Facebook Folks, Pinterest Pals and Cosplay World buddies,

I LOVE HARLEY QUINN. I am sure almost all of you agree , if you dont what is the matter with you! 😉

So I was at hottopic this week and was looking at some of there costume pieces for Halloween – AKA checking out the competition for my props

I saw several things but one item in particular stuck out. Harleys Hammer- Its inflatable.

    SEE its also tiny the hammer may only be about 15- 20 inches long so barely more than a ruler.

My question is this we say cosplay is for everybody and we should never judge a persons costume or props but is there a line for that?

I would never EVER dis someones cosplay or props ever, but in my mind when I saw this I though OH COME ON!!!!! you can do better than that at least make it the proper proportions.

But lets remember fellow cosplayers this is a HALLOWEEN prop its not like the hammer you would see in my cosplay section of the store.

So what do you think, when is it ok to go cheap and easy and when is it not?

Now just to be the devils advocate they had Harleys pop gun its also inflatable. Safety and security at a con are important this will obviously pass. But also since its inflatable its extremely easy to pack seeing as it will become flat.


So when is it ok to go for just cute and easy?
