Not Just a Brilliant Botanical Chemist

Poison Ivy is my all time favorite villain!! It took Me many years to perfect this Poison Ivy costume to where I felt comfortable.

I didn’t like the green stockings and unitard and I also couldn’t find a green dress the right color. I found the perfect corset and with black leggings and long sleeve shirt. Now all that was left was to find the ivy vines.

I wrapped the vines around my boots and tirai and of course being a red head I added a crown of ivy. Also because I am seriously opposed to those weird bun things.

Donning my Poison Ivy Costume

Those who have seen the batman movies got it right away (thank goodness for those people!). Unfortunately, everyone else thought I was tree…

Many people thought I was a tree. I understand where they are coming from. But once I said “no, poison ivy” they were even more confused.

The people who did understand loved it! I got many complements ;). Even better, I received great attention all while not being slutty.

That was my main goal of this costume. To not look like a slut. Although the corset could be on without the long sleeve shirt for a bit of role play…

Speaking of the corset, the one I originally made I dyed green but wasn’t the right shade and I was so thrilled when I found this one online looking for a corset for a different costume.

But Wait, There’s More…
