The annual Harleypalooza meet-up brings together a bunch of DC cosplayers, including tons of Harley Quinns. This was my first time at the event's photo shoot and it was an absolute blast.

This first group shot showcased Harleys and Jokers.

A standoff!

The Arrow, Red Hood and Nightwing had a tense moment.

Cosplayer @captaineddiemullis is Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing. It took him a month and a half to make his costume. The easiest part was the gauntlet, he says.

Harley vs. Joker

In this group shot, there's some conflict among Joker and Pudding. That happens when you have so many options.

In love and war

Harley is probably remembering that one time Joker let her get caught by Batman. Although we know it's been more than once.

Mad Harleys

All the Harleys gang up on the Jokers, because love is a complicated thing.

Joker from Suicide Squad

I'm here for that long coat and contagious smile. The best rendition for  Jared Leto's Joker goes to @i_started_ajoke.

Dead pool? Pun intended!

This isn't exactly the party Deadpool was expecting. Good thing he's wearing red.
