I love dressing up the female villains from Batman and this Halloween I dressed up as Poison Ivy.

    To make the leafy eyebrows, I made a paper template and then traced around it on to red felt.

    I added a bit of detail with a green glitter glue pen. When dry, I attached them to my eyebrows with eyelash glue.

    I sprayed my hair with red hairspray and then gave myself green streaks. To get the Uma Thurman style horns at either side. I wrapped my hair around the lids from hairspray bottles and then pinned the hair in place. I also pinned a few real ivy leaves into my hair.

    For my makeup, I used red and glittery green eyeshadow on my eyes with fake eyelashes. Gave myself bright red glittery lips and finished the look off with green bindis on my eyes and cheeks.

    I wore a bright green dress with green tights and sparkly red shoes. I took a few branches of real ivy and tied them around myself.

I can't wait to see it! I love Harley, but I could never pull off dressing as her, I feel like her personality is far too important and I am waaaay too different haha.

Sadly not. I just had a red dress and some green tights on, so it wasn't really a full costume!
