Harley's Heroine Heist

Wow!

Wilder, solddate, clifford.cao I am in awe of what you have written. You are superb, and it means I really appreciate the kind things some of you have said about the small initial bit I wrote.

But enough of that!

Solddate, did you a definite idea for a costume challenge or was it a more general asking for idea? I'm not too happy with my redesign of Power Girl's uniform, it's a bit too extreme. Harley, and Clifford.cao, are right when they say "a proper costume change should [have] enough 'a your old uniforms remainin' to remind everyone of who you once were". So, I'm really eager to hear better ideas :)

LesLes - It was basically a broad challenge for anyone to design a costume for the story, for any heroine. Granted the scenario of the story, particularly right now, may not allow for immediate application, but as I said they'll be plenty of opportunity when we move to the new targets. They can write it into the story themselves, or pass a description onto here I guess.

To be honest, I really enjoyed your Power Girl design, particularly for the description & application, which has made me want to go back and add proper detail to my dressing of Canary. Only criticism I might find is you may have forgotten about her cape... However, even if you're not 100% satisfied with Power Girl's costume change, there's plenty more heoine's to redeisgn and I'm not gonna deny Zee-Zee's costume is Harley's best work. But I'm happy to exchange ideas.

P.S. Thanks for the good words, btw. I second it for both Wilder and Clifford.cao, throw 'em back at you for getting this ball rolling. Cheers.

I'm kinda with LesLes here. Karen's costume change did strike me as a little too... extreme. That, and I kinda have trouble envisioning it properly.

Then again, I've still got zero ideas for a costume change myself, so what the hell do I know?

You know enough Cliff, namely you're opinion. I can see you're point about envisioning it (pun), but I was impressed by LesLes' detail and I was able to pin down an image 'cos of that. While I agree that the suit contains more Harley than Power Girl, I think Karen's love for Harley (as LesLes put) is similar to Harley's for the Joker. So, for Harley to change Power Girl so much, like the Joker did to her, is rather appropriate to me. Plus, the design's fitiing of a Power Slut, no?
(Btw, I've added in the cape in my latest post, so I hope I'm not treading on any toes there)

As for help with ideas:

  • First, find yourself a heroine you'd like to see corrupted by Harley (doesn't have to be Huntress, who still needs changing at this point)
  • Next, get her current costume firmly fixed in your mind, noting symbols and colour scheme.
  • Then ramp up the sex appeal of that design anyway you like, switch the colours to red, black or white. Be sure to either make a mockery of the symbols (e.g. remove the background to the S on Supergirl's chest, so that it's only the S covering her cleavage) or remove/replace them entirely.

Oh, and don't forget to apply the clown face paint! It's does final brush strokes that paint the picture! You don't hafta limit yourself to white with red or black eyes & lips, if you can imagine a Harley themed facial design, then do it! For example, playing card symbols on the eyes rather than painted on domino masks.

Clifford.cao - *blinks eyes in disbelief after reading last post* Okay, didn't see that coming... Alright, alright, I agree this is what makes the internet fun and a lil' bit scary. Just to warn you though, if I'm writing for characters like that, I'm writing them as Arkham psychoes with those characters as themes/bases for their psychosis and powers. 'Cos no way am I straight writing Spongebob straight into Batman, capiche?
(Btw, good to see another abridged fan, although I prefer "To duel with the Devil in the pale moonlight!")

I just want to compliment LesLes on the costume change that was written for Power Slut.  I don't think it's too extreme, and even if it is, wouldn't Harley being the mad-woman she is go to the extreme?

I also love the harlequin-esque makeup that is going on with all the transformations.  Any idea on doing something with the corrupted heroines' hair as well?


RE: Harley's Heroine Heist

ESchorcho - I'll let others answer your first Q, 'cos I already agree with you.
Also, I'm with you on the facepaint, it was one of the things I loved imagining about LesLes' design for Zee-Zee, that's why I put it in my Sugah design and added it to Power Slut.
I can see what you mean about the hair, I'm actually struggling to decide to imagine Harley herself with her natural blonde or her divide of red & black from current comics. I don't think every heroine's hair should be dyed, I know I didn't describe Canary's, but when I imagine her blonde locks with her new look, it finishes the design for me. However, dying the Huney's hair red or white (it's already pretty black) would be a great idea, and same goes for any other design. *nudge* Have a go yourself, you might just like it.

I realize addventures can go anywhere the writer wants, but I'm noticing that everyone writing on this story seems pretty much in-sync with where it is going.  So my question is do the costume changes have to reflect the heroine's original costume or can it go in a more unique direction?


RE: Harley's Heroine Heist

by clifford.cao - 6/16/2012 1:48 PM

I prefer the former, but if you want to take it in the direction of the latter, then go for it.

As soon as I brought the Corruptor over, my laptop key board went ka-put, so Don't expect much until next week when I get a new one.

And the first chapter of the story has been brought over. Now we see where it goes on here.

Question: would it be ok to bring a story (well the first chapter) from another site? I've got a long dead story from BE's Addventures that I'd like to see this place's take on.

Helen-Troy Understandable, it read to me as satire. But, I also think this particular election hit on some really deep schisms so people are understandably raw right now (As a Mexican-American, it's been a fucking nightmare). Also, LBR, on this sit

Helen-Troy - 1/23/2017 4:05 AM
Guys I'm a little surprised by reaction to this. It's satire, with the possibility to go two ways (let's face it, I hardly made him a "hero") and as for politics, this place is hardly PC at all!
colleem - 1/23/2017 1:58 AM
Aye. Besides the fact that it was trump it was a very good chapter.
