|Something quick and easy to wear alongside Luke's Batman costume!|
This is actually hopefully gonna be a real budget jobbie, but that doesn't mean I'm putting no thought in! The whole reason I'm doing this is because I love Ivy, but I'm not ready to paint myself green and bare all just yet. Whilst I was thinking of 'casual' designs of Ivy I could do, I thought why not try and do pre-Ivy, plain old Pamela? So I'm going to.
I'm re-using my Lily wig, which is a nice reddish brown colour, and I'll probably loosely tie it back so it looks a bit more 'professional'.
I'll be buying a Labcoat from one of the workwear shops here in Hull, and printing off a little name badge too!
For the shoes, I've got some plain black flats I can already use- heels would have been mice and sexy but I couldn't walk in them for a whole day at Expo.
I already have many many tan/nude tights!
For the main 'outfit', I just want a plain skirt, and plain top/shirt. If possible, I would like a green top, but Luke advised me not to get too outlandish with Ivy's colour scheme since this is pre-Ivy and I still need something that is dressy and suitable for a research lab type scenario. So it'll likely be a plain black skirt and either a plain tank top, shirt, or possibly even a jumper of either white or green.
What will sell it as Pamela Isley will be the accessories! I got a Necklace and Earring set for my birthday, which are actually little pink flowers, so I can wear those with this costume, and I also got a really bright, garish flower hairclip to wear too.
Oh, and I can't forget my glasses to complete the science-y look, which I'll grab from Primark of Poundshop, most likely!

Finished :D (Posted 13th October 2011)
Well, bought my labbie labcoat today so pretty much all done now. It's shorter than I'd have liked but I'm still very pleased. I'll make a little nametag over the weekend and that should be it... Yaay 1/3 done for Expo :D
Shopping! (Posted 27th September 2011)
So, I went shopping yesterday and managed to pick up most of the stuff for this cosplay! The only real thing left now is buying the labcoat and trying it all together. I'll probably buy the coat sometime next week and it'll be all done! In the meantime, I think I'll try out a makeup test too.
