With Birds of Prey hitting screens, we’re in need of some badass outfits to wear as we assemble our local girl gang and check out the radical new R-rated superhero flick from Cathy Yan, Christina Hodson, and Margot Robbie. Luckily, BlackMilk and DC Comics have teamed up to provide the perfect looks for watching the madcap action movie and we are obsessed.

The gorgeous collection not only reimagines some of the titular heroine’s wardrobes but also features some classic comic book art from some of DC’s biggest names like Amanda Conner, Alex Ross, Paul Pelletier, Jim Lee, David Finch, and more. It’s rare that we get to see stylishly designed pieces that celebrate our favorite comic book artists and characters so we’re super excited about this collection. This and the fact that we can finally own a super rad Amanda Conner Harley shirt we didn’t buy at a convention.

In an official press release, Australian cult clothing label BlackMilk shared the thoughts behind the collection.

Birds of Prey has already been lauded for its incredible costuming, so it was a natural choice for the label to recreate some of the main character’s outfits into signature BlackMilk pieces including overalls, dresses and outerwear. Fans of the film will be able to shop a range of pieces inspired by the latest iterations of Harley Quinn and Black Canary. But these clothes won’t just be reserved in your wardrobe for Cosplay or costume parties, the items are designed to be wearable too. Take the Cuffed Pants for example, these can be worn with the accompanying sequin coat for a full Harley Quinn look, or pared back with a simple white shirt, ready for the office. As for our old school DC fans, the collection will also include a range of pieces featuring popular characters from different eras including Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, The Joker and others.”

Some of our favorite pieces include the radical Justice League overalls we will definitely be rocking, as well as the the Alex Ross baseball jersey of our dreams. There’s also plenty of leggings action too, for the more sensible among us. This is a super smart mashup of both classic comic book art and the cosplay inspired clothing trend. If you’re a fan of the new 52 era of DC Comics then you’ll likely be very happy as a lot of the art here is from that era. If you’re more interested in racking up some Birds of Prey inspired looks then you’ll love the Harley and Black Canary outfits. Though there’s no official Cass Cain look, we could definitely see her rocking some of the oversized Bombshells merchandise.
