Geek Girl Mistress Zelda looks totally badass as her black metal version of Harley Quinn! Here's what she had to say about the concept...

"Harley Quinn is such a fun character to wear and to re-imagine. I've been cosplaying her for over a decade (classic version as well as my own designs). This is my 4th time designing an original Harley Quinn piece. I was inspired by Lady Haha's awesome punk rock leather Harley jacket, it made me want to make a battle vest. You may have seen black metal play a part in my photo aesthetic before - it worked so nicely for Harley as black metal corpse paint already shares a lot of designs with Harley's look, so it was really easy to combine the two. I also made my own battle vest which is traditional black metal and thrash metal attire (my favorite patch is the ball pit that says OPEN UP THIS PIT - perfect for Harley). Some spikes, pentagrams, leather, and ripped stockings later and you have my corpse paint HQ.

I sat on this costume for a while not knowing where to shoot it or with whom, but photographer ASHZ totally nailed it! I like the subdued color palette and heavy shadows he uses, it works really well for darker themes. We shot this in a public storage and a freight elevator. I would have liked so shoot it somewhere in the forest or outdoor industrial, but it was raining that day - this plan B for location actually ended up working really well."
