Welcome to My Garden by gillykins
Welcome to My Garden

I had the chance to shoot after hours at the Ontario Science Centre’s Rainforest Exhibit during Atomic Lollipop.  I’ve always wanted to do a shoot with Poison Ivy in a greenhouse this location was 10X better than why I had dreamed off.

Costume Construction:
I made the entire costume myself, the base is a spiral steel boned ‘playboy bunny suit with a built in bra. Every leaf is coated in E600 and attached to the suit. I used a mixture of silk ivy leaves and inexpensive ivy from the dollar store to create dimension and colour variation between the leaves. My gloves are leather painted in two tones of green. I made the gussets a contracting light green as an added detail to blend with the different leaf colours I used on the suit. I wanted to incorporate a lot of different green tones to keep everything looking lush and natural.  I purchased a lace front wig in a natural red and mounted small leaves on spiral hair clips to give me a leafy halo. 

Bombshell Batwoman by gillykins
Bombshell Batwoman
I love all of the DC Bombshell designs by Ant Lucia, the moment I saw the Batwoman one I knew I had to make it. Everything is made by me including the hand embroidered Gotham Knights patch and Batwoman logo on the hat.

Magik by gillykins
When I first saw Magik's Pheonix Five design I fell in love with in. I wanted to challenge myself with the design and fabrics. So I chose to use a mixture of lambskin, cotton suiting, spandex and my favorite metallic gold vinyl.

Love your Poison Ivy Cosplay <3. Your costume was simple yet it was so classic it didn't need to be over the top.

Thank you, I like to keep certain costumes clean and simple.  It makes the construction of them almost more difficult because you can't hide things.
