Poison Ivy by gillykins Poison Ivy by gillykins
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.

The spiral leaf hair clips add a really nice touch! And red hair really suits you. :) Wonderfully crafted, as always!

Your creativity astounds me!! I love this modern twist (if that's the right word) on your classic outfit you started out with. I'm guessing since you used this for you ID pic, Ivy is your favorite?
Beautifully crafted and put together to look flawless in design. By this pic, it's complex yet simple in appearance. You style your wigs so naturally, I swear it's you actual hair.
I know you don't always reply to comments, but are those green contacts or do you have naturally green eyes??
Beautifully done, Gillian!! Thanks for bringing my fav. rogue villian to life:love:

Be still my beating heart.  The wig pretty much makes the whole look work, and sure as hell looks more natural than a dye job.
