WATCH: A closer look at the BIRDS OF PREY costume display at NYCC ’19

The Beat is here to find the comfiest BOP costume.


Over the last week, Birds of Prey has nested happily in headlines across the internet with new promotional posters and a full trailer. Now that trend continues with a first look at the cast’s costumes. At NYCC this year, Warner Bros. and DC have put on display each Birds of Prey costume for your perusal – and lucky for you, The Beat‘s Yael Tygiel is on the scene.

Over on our YouTube channel, you can follow along with Tygiel as she gives some first impressions on what our leading ladies will be wearing to the 2020 premiere. Costume designs for Birds of Prey are credited to Erin Benach, who’s also worked on A Star is Born, The Place Beyond the Pines, The Neon Demon and more.

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn stars Margot Robbie as — well, you know by now — Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Ewan McGregor as the Black Mask. It’s directed by Cathy Yan and hits theaters on February 7, 2020. Following this weekend’s premiere of Joker, this flick will be the next big release coming from the DCU.
