Poison Ivy - Kotobukiya by etaru Poison Ivy - Kotobukiya by etaru
I'm so excited to finally show photos of my costume from Dragoncon! I can't believe it came together in 2 days, I must have been very motivated to finish her lol.

The concept came together when I thought of Ivy as a glamorous, badass lady who emerged from a forest covered in morning dew drops and leaves. I loved the Kotobukiya figure of Poison Ivy, but didn't feel up to painting myself green, so I came up with a design that incorporated elements of Michael Turner's art that I adored. I wanted something that deviated from the usual ivy leaves one piece bikini with boots and gloves, but still kept her very sensual and detailed design origins.

Construction was pretty straight forward. The base is made out of an olive sateen for which I used a bunnysuit pattern made by and fitted by ~Mostflogged, and covered the bodice, body and bottom with wisteria leaves. I wanted to avoid using ivy leaves as much as possible except on the leg and arm accents, and used larger foiled leaves on the butt as a modesty cover. I painted over a pair of heels I owned and glued ivy garlands to the base, having them wrap up the legs and pinned to the tights. The rest was adding hundreds of small rhinestone details to each leaf - even the ivy garlands and shoes - and constructing a hairpiece out of matching leaves, green and ivory flowers, and peacock accents. I wanted to loosely style the wig so it could be reused, so the leaves in the hair are all pinned in.
I can't wait to show more photos of this outfit, Photoninja was incredibly wonderful to shoot with, and I love the pin-up feel to it.

Did ~Mostflogged help with the tights selection, too?
She has really good taste in tights, and these look like something she would recommend. :)

Nope, she assisted in the patterning of the suit only.
