Mega rock star HYDE debuted his Harley Quinn costume yesterday at his band VAMPS’ annual Halloween event in Tokyo, and the combination of what is happening here is enough to blow our minds.HYDE’s Harley Quinn selfie he posted to Instagram on October 22.First of all, HYDE is definitely a dude, and it’s awesome that he’s able to pull off a cute look like this as well.
