Black Widow, Harley Quinn cosplay TikTok video has over 58 million views

(That ain’t Margot Robbie or Scar Jo)

Earlier this month, two incredibly talented cosplayers, and quite possibly gifted sorceresses, russian_harley_official and mimisskate (Kate Shumskaya) teamed up to create a DC and MCU crossover featuring Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow cosplayed by Kate Shumskaya and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn cosplayed by the TikToker “Russian Harley official.” The result is an MCU/DCEU crossover that has been viewed over 58 million times on TikTok. 

Their cosplay crossover team-up came at the perfect time with James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and Marvel’s Black Widow both still in theaters. 

Both young women bear striking resemblances to their comic book character inspirations naturally, but with a little makeup and costumes the duo almost magically transform into the characters flawlessly. In this video, “russian harley official” wears a dress similar to the one Margot Robbie wears in The Suicide Squad and Kate Shumskaya wears a red wig and the Black Widow costume. 

The Margot Robbie doppelgänger TikToker also cosplays Disney’s Cruella with remarkable authenticity and she even partnered up with another cosplayer who dressed as Maleficent for a Disney villain mashup, not to mention some shenanigans with Deadpool

Kate Shumskaya’s Black Widow cosplay was already a viral sensation on its own, but this recent team-up with Robbie’s own doppelgänger has launched the popularity of her TikToks to new heights. With 8.5 million followers and over 120 million likes, Shumskaya also has a YouTube channel (with far fewer followers).

The real Johansson, who isn’t on social media, has been busy elsewhere, giving birth to her son Cosmo and suing the Walt Disney Co. over the way her film was released in July, which she says cuts into her compensation on the film.
