Cosplayer Chiara Scuro > Costume of Poison Ivy from Batman
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- This design of Ivy is just a button up shirt & underwear. Classy I kno rite? The panties are purchased 4-way nylon/spandex blend hip hugger panties that are dyed green with Lumiere Jacquard used for leather. I attached fake ivy leaves & cut 3 giant banana leaves I found at Micheals into the shape of the 3 main leaves on her underwear, outlined them in champagne colored fabric paint, & attached the leaves to the front. The most amount of work for this costume went into the panties (lulz). The "prisoner" shirt is a red button up top with blue bias tape on it. I applied the giant "Arkham" symbol on the back using dark fabric iron on transfers & then burned the design with the iron to give it a "worn & weathered" look. The wig, green stockings & shoes are all parts from my older Ivy costume. The makeup is Ben Nye mineral powder, Final Seal & AquaNet. I liked that the powder had a gold sheen to it, to match Ivy's sheen in the game. It looked great in person, but came out way too shiny in photos when the flash of the cameras caught it.
- Personal Thoughts:
- Made this for my friends' giant DC Comics group. I went to the bar drinking in this costume. Covered in green makeup & wearing a button up shirt & leafy panties (or "crotch leaves" as I called them, you can only be so serious about things like this...) My life has reached a new level of weird because of this hobby. I am a classy dame. You don't even know...
