“Hot patootie, bless my soul!”
Sideshow is thrilled to unveil a new addition to the high fashion and pop culture inspired series by the amazing Stanley “Artgerm” Lau.
Hailing from Hong Kong, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau is a designer and concept artist whose stunning art has garnered great critical acclaim and earned him an ever-growing fan base of admirers.
Now, in collaboration with Sideshow, Artgerm has brought his fun and vibrant style to a new 1:5 scale Artist Series that is a love letter to the bad girls of Gotham!
The latest villainess to get an Artgerm makeover is none other than the unpredictable queen of scream herself – Harley Quinn!
Ordinarily, there’s nothing glamorous about a Jester’s traditional motley. With its jangling bell-laden hood, slashed diamond patterned jerkin, ruffled and flared pantaloons and stockings, and distinctive curly-toed shoes, its very purpose was to make the wearer look like a buffoon! But Artgerm has taken that old-school fool’s garb and given it a truly inspired catwalk-style twist.
Harley Quinn’s new wardrobe manages to be equal parts alluring and utterly insane – just like Dr. Quinzel herself!
Harley kicks a heel in the air and strikes a gleeful and mocking pose, casually holding a giant mallet in her gloved hand and smiling coquettishly – she’s ready to cause mischief at a moment’s notice!
Combining Stanley’s bold colors and sleek costume design with Sideshow’s love of fine detail and intricate textures, this charming and eye-catching museum quality collectible is deceptively detailed. Painstakingly sculpted and expertly painted, and positively overflowing with those little artistic touches and subtle nuances that keep you coming back for just one more glance.
Sure to be a hit with lovers of retro pin-up art as well as fans of DC Comics most maniacal madam-miscreant, this limited edition statue is sure to find pride of place in any home!
We are huge fans of Stanley’s work here at Sideshow, and we had the great pleasure of collaborating with him previously on numerous projects, including his own original character the Pepper Premium Format™ Figure, and the first in the DC Artgerm Artist Series – Catwoman!
