Coolest Poison Ivy Halloween Cotume

After checking out the pretty awful Poison Ivy costumes in stores this year, I thought it would be much better, and a lot more fun, to make my own Poison Ivy Halloween costume.

I bought a green leotard, green tights, green satin gloves, a bright reddish-orange wig, and some fake ivy leaves.

I sewed some leaves all across the top of the leotard and gloves, and sewed smaller vines of leaves wrapping around the tights and gloves. I spray painted an old pair of knee-high boots green and glued some leaves around the top. I also spray painted a wide belt green and sewed some leaves around it. I took the leftover strands of ivy and twisted it together for a hairpiece. For the eyebrows I took some light molding putty and molded it into shape. I then let it air dry, painted it, and used spirit gum to attach it to my face.

I applied fake eyelashes and used bright green eye makeup and bright red lipstick to complete the look.

  4. Sorry guys! I forgot about this post and haven’t checked out the comments in, well, years.

    For anyone in the future- I bought the leotard at a dance/costume shop and the leaves from a craft store (think Michael’s, somewhere with lots of those fake flowers and such) I actually bought vines and ripped the leaves off of them.

    Thanks for all the feedback! This is still my fave Halloween costume to date :)
