When it comes to voice acting, Tara Strong is known for going deep into her characters. The actress has racked up credits in hit shows such as Rugrats, Teen Titans, My Little Pony, and many more. However, at San Diego Comic Con, Tara gave special attention to her work on the Batman: Arkham games where she voiced Harley Quinn. Clearly inspired, the actress decided to surprise fans with a sweet treat as Tara cosplayed as The Joker’s No. #1 fan
Taking to Twitter, Tara posted a string of tweets which detail her SDCC cosplaying adventures. Dressed in a leather bustier and leather choker, the actress wrote, “Kinda loved surprising the fans tonight #SDCC2016 #HarleyQuinn the funnest part was folks asking 4 pics not knowing.” Tara, of course, was dressed in the outfit Harley Quinn dons in the hugely successful Batman: Arkham Knight video game. As the actress voiced the villain in said game, Tara no doubt felt it was time she suited up in the character’s more contemporary ensemble for a change.
Tara went on to post several other photos of her SDCC rendezvous. Fans were shown a picture that shows the actress standing outside of the convention center. The relatively sparse sidewalk is littered with some lingering fans, but unsurprisingly, it’s Tara who grabs viewers' attention as she’s standing front and center. The actress waits in full make-up, clearly channeling Harley’s sometimes bored expression, as she poses for the photo.
And, later, the actress decided to one-up herself by uploading a video of herself in cosplay mode. Tara went out to dinner in downtown San Diego with friends only to find she was the only patron dressed up. So, of course, she had to make the most of the moment. The video starts by panning over the crowded table before the camera settles on Tara who's sitting with a glass of wine. The actress smiles brightly before she starts speaking in Harley’s iconic voice. She greets viewers with a high-pitched, “Hiya Puddin’,” and fans are still going nuts over Tara’s cosplay improv.
The actress, however, was probably just happy to surprise her fans with the little gift. Tara has been in attendance at SDCC to promote her upcoming role in Batman: The Killing Joke as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon and also participate in various fan signings.
