Poison Ivy Cosplay at Dragon*Con 2011
Character: DC Comics Poison Ivy
Costume made by myself
Hair & Makeup: myself
Corset by Timeless Trends
Yes, I'm being stalked by Batman.
I designed the outfit around the corset for this Photoshop painting
I made of Poison Ivy. I then realized I wanted to make the costume I had designed, and wear it myself.
I spent a few weekends just sewing leaves together, I figured it would hold together better than glue. However, I did glue the leaves onto the boots. The outfit held up pretty well, but the leaves on the boots eventually fell off.
Sadly, I forgot to pack my red wig, so I had to make do with my own hair. But I've planned a photo shoot for this outfit so I'll have some images of the completed version of my original concept with gloves and sexy green shoes.
I was also briefly featured in this Dragon*Con "Nerds Gone Wild" VSF video
talking about my costume.
