It's Good to be BAD!

It's Good to be BAD!

 

Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy Halloween Costumes

How do you overcome flagrant male oppression? In Gotham City, you can rise up, become an anti-heroine, and put the BAD in badass!

--------------------

Selina Kyle was a timid secretary being pushed around by everyone - her boss, the Penguin, even Batman himself.

Catwoman

But then she reaches her breaking point, loses one of her nine lives, and re-emerges as Catwoman...

Catwoman

Finally comfortable in her stitched-together skin, she owns her power, her sensuality, and her feline ferocity!

Catwoman

 

--------------------

Dr. Pamela Isley's story has strong parallels with Selena's - she was a mild-mannered botanist...

Poison Ivy

Until Dr. Jason Woodrue, her lab director, deliberately exposes her to virulent plant toxins. But she doesn’t succumb to these poisons, and instead metamorphoses into Poison Ivy!

Poison Ivy

Alternately an eco-warrior and eco-terrorist, she’s the sworn protector of plants who’s not afraid to use her seductress powers to advance her cause.

Poison Ivy and Batman

 

--------------------

Dr. Harleen Quinzel's story is a bit more complex. She starts out as a psychologist, with a keen interest in criminal minds.

Harley Quinn

But then one of her patients, the twisted and manipulative Joker, seduces her to become Harley Quinn and join him in his deviant escapades.

Harley Quinn and Joker

Comic books, video games, and movies and have portrayed Harley differently over the years...

Harley Quinn

But all of these media seem to be converging on one storyline detail. She’s extricating herself from the Joker's influence to become an anti-heroine in her own right. We can't wait!

--------------------

Now, we certainly hope that none of YOU are flagrantly oppressed by the men in your life! And we definitely are not advocating that you REALLY become a villainous anti-heroine. But wouldn't it be fun to dress up as one for Halloween? Well, Dare Fashion can help you!

 

If you're feeling playful and irreverent, our Bolero Top in Red Queen is a great jumping off point for a Harley Quinn costume. This is the Harley Quinn of the animated series, not the super-sexualized, super-bad girl Harley Quinn from the new Suicide Squad movie (whom we also like!).

Harley Quinn

  

If green is more your color and environmentalism more your cause, you can use our aptly named Bolero Top in Ivy to dress up as Poison Ivy! Just be careful which plants you touch or your garden might become overgrown with weeds!

Poison Ivy

 

And finally, if you think black is the new black and you’d rather slink than strut, our Temptation Top in Black is a purr-fect beginning for your Catwoman costume! Have a pre-game saucer of milk, sharpen your claws, and get ready to whip them into shape!

Catwoman

Dear Dare,
Every year, my sweetie buys me stuff for Valentine's Day that I don't REALLY want or need. I don't really need any more stuffed animals - I'm not 12! And even though I LOVE chocolate, do I really NEED any more chocolate? OK, yeah, everyone needs more chocolate! But still, what I really want (and need!) is some new outfits 'cause fashion is my passion...

Size Guide

Relax. Don't worry. If you don’t like the way it fits, you can return it… no questions asked.  It’s important to us that you LOVE the way Dare Fashion makes you feel about yourself!

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!

Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups,  and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.

And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
