This Poison Ivy Costume was very simple. I needed to make a quick costume because my original costume plan fell through. Searches everywhere for a green dress and chose this one because of the drapey sides which I thought were kind of like capes. I then bought a red belt and used a leather punch to make an extra hole in it so that it would fit around my rib cage. I wore black heels.
I bought a few fake Ivy garlands from a craft store and used a TON of glitter spray paint on the leaves to make them sparkly. I did the same to a sprig of ivy which I used in my hair. I took one of the garlands of ivy and stitched winding around my leg to a pair of fishnet tights. I used the other garland as a boa.
For my hair, I curled it and gathered it into a low side pony tail. I tied the pony tail with black and red lace and at the base of the pony tail put a large sprig of ivy which was bobby pinned to the back of my head and up around the other side (unfortunately you cannot see this in the picture). To finish the look I wore thick dark green eyeliner and dark green eye shadow along with bright red lipstick.
This is my Homemade Poison Ivy Costume. Over 1000 silk leaves were used to create it. I found an old bodice, bathing suit bottoms, and a pair of boots, along with a green curtain for a cape, at a local thrift store and used hot glue to attach the individual leaves to each piece. I used the cuffs of an old shirt to make the arm bands. I then glued hundreds of pale green crystal beads (ivy berries) and red rosettes to the bodice, boots, and arm bands. More ivy, beads and rosettes were glued to a store bought wig. I used Mod Podge to adhere green glitter to the heels of my boots. Velcro was used on the arm bands, boots (as they have no zipper), and bottoms to keep them in place.
Finally, I glued several leaves together, cut them to shape the eyebrows, and glued beads on them as a finish. I used double-sided fabric tape to attach the eyebrows to my face. It took countless hours, several all-nighters included, to complete the costume, but the end result was well worth it!
I decided to create my own Homemade Poison Ivy Costume mainly because I couldn't afford the expensive yet not so great costumes! I bought a white corset, white shorts, white fish nets, and white gloves. From there a lot of leaves and green paint and BaM!!! Lol all that was left was me in it .
This was my wives wedding dress. Was converted into a Homemade Poison Ivy Costume. All material is handmade based off the Batman forever ensemble. The material for the mini-dress was originally her wedding dress.
I hope the viewers appreciate her attention to detail as much as I do.
