Costume Information

Cost : Too much! The budget was about £95, and it ended up with a few £ more in the end.
Time Taken : 3 days

I've always wanted to make a Poison Ivy costume, but I never felt that I had the body type for it. Now when I've lost some weight I decided that it was time.

The basic costume is inspired by the animated series but I wanted to do a few modifications.

The main bodice, which the leaves are on, is sewn with a stretchy cotton fabric. The leaves on the bodice is all glued on the suit and then secured by hand stitches. It took me about 2 days to work with all the leaves but I think it´s worth it now when I see the result.

All patterns I've used are made by me from scratch.
