With Suicide Squad breaking the box office and October 31st just around the corner, we all know what's coming at this year's Halloween parties...

Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn look in Suicide Squad is a strange leap from the DC character's original black and red jumpsuit, but it might be safe to say that the look is appreciated and approved by fans everywhere. Still, the quest to conquer this seemingly effortless (yet chaotic) mess of a look is harder than one might think. There's the intricate earring details, the clown makeup, the tattoos, and the ability to pull off those red and blue shorts.

That being said, we found 11 cosplayers on Instagram whose Harley Quinns take the cake for our favorites (so far, at least).

11. Andrasta

She began cosplaying just two years ago and seems to be a natural at it! Andrasta went all-out when it came to replicating the tattoos that are plastered all over the Suicide Squad character. Being a makeup maverick also helps, which is why she gets a spot on our Top Harleys.

10. Cheryl

Whoa, nerd alert! That's where you can find this awesome Harley Quinn cosplay on Instagram. Like most Quinn impersonators, Cheryl is simply gorgeous, so her DC cosplay seems effortless. However, if you take a look at her photos, you can see how she progressed by being as specific as possible to the small details.

She does a pretty mean Joker, too.

9. Richard Schaefer

This young Californian can be just about any Disney princess, but he also rocks it as Harley Quinn. He brings out each of his characters with eccentric beauty and flawlessness. If there's one thing that Richard can teach cosplayers, it's that a wig and a knack for the glamorous can transform you into just about any character you want to be.

8. Mary

With the help of hair legend and stylist Guy Tang, @SuprMaryFace made this Harley Quinn look fierce! The homemade "Little Monster" t-shirt also goes to show that a little creativity goes a long way. Kudos to her for being crafty!

Mary is an Australian turned Mississippian who cosplays and models. She also makes a pretty sweet Gothic Snow White and runs a Youtube and Twitch channel.

7. Kristen Hughey

Kristen Hughey's Quinn look is so on point it landed her on the cover of Cosplay Culture magazine. She is (of course) a model and was actually featured in GQ. Kristen goes to many a convention, mostly in this accurate Harley Quinn portrayal, and is becoming quite the professional cosplayer!

6. Anna Faith

Anna Faith has been known to accurately pull off all of her cosplays, and has been widely recognized by her 700,000 fans for her Quinn look. She has a couple different takes on the Suicide Squad version of Harley, including an everyday look for those who can’t get enough of this crazy character. You can see the comic version of Quinn, along with her other cosplays on her Instagram.

5. Chris Villain

This is one of the most vivacious genderbent cosplays we’ve seen! Chris shows his style in true Harley Quinn fashion, from the bullet belt, the Puddin’ chain, to the suspenders. It's not specific to the look that Robbie declares in the film, but this unique take can only be pulled off with a big personality.

Chris defines himself as a content creator, actor, singer, anime addict and Pokémon Master.

4. Tahnee Harrison

A Disney princess by day, Tahnee makes a variety of Harley Quinn looks by night. This cosplayer and L.A.-based actress can take on any HQ look from the latest film. Tahnee doesn't limit herself to fashioning in just the red and blue action attire. Besides this atypical Suicide Squad style, she also fixed herself up as a Blue Lantern Harley Quinn!

3. Heidi Mae

Heidi’s take on the Margot Robbie look is bright, yet dark and mysterious. Notice her attention to detail with the snazzy gold Quinn accessories, like the cuffs and the earrings. Heidi makes parody videos on YouTube and even has her own Joker to cosplay with (who also looks exceedingly similar to Jared Leto).

This cosplayer actually got the opportunity that every Harley Quinn fan hopes for: in a costume contest at the San Diego Comic-Con, Heidi won and had the chance to meet the entire cast of the new film.

2. Mykie

Mykie deserves a spot on our list since she actually fooled tons of Suicide Squad fans into thinking DC had leaked an official photo from the film.

Mykie is a professional makeup artists whose talent is beyond anything you will see from your everyday cosplayer. Her social media channels are full of useful tips and tricks, which can turn a dutiful cosplayer into a work of art.

1. Laura Gilbert

And our #1 pick for the best Harley Quinn is Laura Gilbert. Laura bares an incredible likeness to Margot Robbie, particularly when she dons the red and blue attire. Her quirky smile and overall demeanor constantly remind her fans of Robbie in Suicide Squad. She's puddin' in a lot of competition for the rest of those who decide to go as the supervillain this Halloween!

Like Robbie, Laura is also Australian. She has become quite good at impersonating the fun-loving character and makes plenty of appearances at comic-cons. You can follow her as the Infamous Harley Quinn on Instagram.
