A group of ladies that only lasted a short while as a functioning team before being shuffled out of the spotlight, the Gotham City Sirens are a fan-favorite squad made up of iconic characters who walk the fine line between full-on villain and struggling anti -hero on a near daily basis. Three characters who are closely associated with The Dark Knight of Gotham himself, BatmanDustin deciding to give Harley, Ivy, and Selina a true siren makeover not only works but looks amazing to boot.

By using his unique watercolor art style to nail the colors and flow of the image, Dustin redesigns the trio’s look to fit his nautical theme perfectly. Pulling out the main colors used in each woman’s iconic costume designs, Dustin draws Harley as the red mermaid, Ivy as the green one, and Catwoman as the black, with seaweed and scale-like clothing giving way to full-blown mermaid tails that curl and sway with the tides. Finishing things off by giving each woman’s swaying, water-suspended hair, Dustin depicts all three with a facial expression that captures each of their characters well, especially the always bubbly Harley Quinn.

So while there hasn’t been a DC Comics tale that turns all heroes and villains into characters ripped straight out of The Little Mermaidits vast multiverse ensures that anything is possible. Harley Quinn, Poison Ivyand Catwoman were once Gotham City Sirens, and now thanks to Dustin Nguyen, they’ve literally become some.
