niiice, and green skin wise I'd say maybe give your skin just a overall green tint, that way it won't be as time consuming

Tights look good too. ;) I guess bare feet is also a bit stressfull at a crowded show, so I agree with your changes. But Im glad you got great pics with body paint too. :)

If I could I wouldn't wear shoes with the tights.. but I would be forever buying more from them ripping.. would also look a little odd with the toes all covered by tights! :)

Journal

Modding (Posted 8th March 2011)

I'm going to be wearing Ivy a little differently from now on.. tights and shoes... body paint was almost making me cry from stress!!!!

Midlands (Posted 24th February 2011)

Had alot of fun wearing Ivy at the Midlands Expo.. its helped me realize a few things for next time.

I will most likely wear tights next time.. just cause body painting is shit and takes a long time and is really stressful!

And defo sort out the costumes crotch area.. nuff said ;D

finished the leotard (Posted 13th December 2010)

I was going to upload this as a normal pic but realized the ones I have now are better xD

I've basically finished the leotard.. I cut off the normal straps but left a tiny bit of the strap, then folded that back onto itself & sewed it up creating a new bra strap holder for my see through straps :D

I finally have support in this thing woo!

Also an added bonus is that the straps I had before already had leaves sewed into them when I was testing to see how they would look if I kept them .. so I can stitch the two straps together & create her collar :D win win!

ps. ignore the wonky metal bit haha realied after the photo it was wonky D: & the threads lol I'm gonna clean it all later .. promise!

WIP make up etc (Posted 11th December 2010)

Been messing about with the green body paint, I'm just using snazaroo atm its actually working quite well.. I was expecting snazaroo to fail xD

I need to spirit gum or whatever the vines to me on the day I wear it & the wig keeps flapping in my face and making me rage so I will put some hair grips in with lil leaves on them xD

woo (Posted 10th December 2010)

Wig drama is overr, it finally came today, when I first opened it, it was what I would call a 'rat tail wig', cause it had loads of very thin seperate curls.. so I did the one thing I probs should't of done, brushed them out :P So now its wavy/curly but without the rat tail effect! haha I'll upload a pic soon =)

sigh (Posted 8th December 2010)

still no answer from the ebay seller who posted the wig.. asked for tracking number but she hasn't replied... if its lost in the post i will actually cry cause it was perfect. I've bought some clear straps to mod the leotard wig.. the normal straps with leaves on looks odd haha.

messing about with make up.. for some reason i couldnt find any of my usual make up so I had to make do with what I could find.. quite like the look just needa work on making the green alot more even.. its kinda patchy atm xD

Update (Posted 7th December 2010)

Stupid wig isn't here yet.. either the snow is delaying it BIG TIME or its lost in the post .. or the buyer hasn't really posted it haha.

Anyway attached a load of leaves onto my leotard.. tried it on and noticed the bits I need to add some more leaves, mainly around the legs & on the straps :).

Bodypaint (Posted 3rd December 2010)

Woo bought 2 different shades of green bodypaint, I'm not fully painting myself head to toe, I don't have time for that lol. I will be doing it.. can't describe it very well, like half skin colour half bodypainted.

Just so the skin has a tint of this green on it sort of! I will put up a pic to describe myself better when I get them :P

I'm thinking of ordering a yellow or maybe gold to highlight bits, it would also match the leotard :)

Wig & Leaves (Posted 3rd December 2010)

I got my Ivy vines through, they are nice just the leaves are way to small to be used to decorate the leotard with, but should be perfect for body decoration, haha! I've purchased some leaves that are 'loose' for card makers, so I don't have to bother cutting them off stalks, etc.

I've also bought the wig, I've gone for a coppery red instead of a bright red, hopefully it'll look more natural instead of very bright red & synthetic, I'm hoping it comes tomorrow :D

Ivy leaves (Posted 25th November 2010)

Found a load of church ex display Ivy vines which I will use to decorate the leotard with & make a choker & hair piece.

Also hang some of them off me too.

Bodysuit (Posted 20th November 2010)

The picture doesn't do ANY justice for the bodysuit, it looks like It had yellow moss growing on it :P

I actually really like it, its mainly green, but had a greeny/goldy sheen to it when you move, I really like it cause it makes it less 2D and boring.

I will probably be covering up alot of it with an underbust if I can find one I'm happy with, if not, I'm quite happy with the bodysuit by itself.

After that ... onto the dreaded leaves! D:

Ohh aswell remember the reference pics, are just to inspire me im not following that design 100%

Update (Posted 20th November 2010)

After loadsss of searching for underbusts, leotards, corsets, etc etc. I found a iridescent green/gold bodysuit which I thought could work really nice. It depends how much gold is showing, I want it too look green 88% of the time with a hint of gold in the light. Doesn't matter if its wrong I can resell :)

Wig time (Posted 7th November 2010)

When I get some spare pennies I will more than likely buy this wig, I'm also going to be using it as my wig for Circe too, as long as it holds out okay =D

I've gone for this wig because of its colouring, its red, but has a hint of copper to it, which is exactly what I was looking for. It matches Ivy & Circe :D

Research (Posted 5th November 2010)

After researching artificial plants,vines etc etc

I really like the thought of the effect I could get if I buy the vines pictures, If I attach them to the outfit and have them trailing off my arms, legs etc etc I think that should look really effective :D
