It's not nice to fool with Mother Nature. . .
Mine is based off of the comic book version, not Uma Thurman in "Batman and Robin", although lets face it, she's a badass.
I bought my leaves from dollar tree, it'll be much more expensive if you don't!

Sorry about the pictures! I never think of it till after :c

*The time is wrong, although if you work 72 hours straight you probably could! hahah

  • How to make a superhero costume. Poison Ivy Costume - Step 1
    Step 1

    FOR THE BODY SUIT:

    black strapless leotard
    green thread/needle
    leaves

  • Step 2

    Hand sew leaves onto the body suit

    *If you do it by machine the leotard won't be able to stretch

    *Closely together to avoid gapping

    *You'll have to go back and fill in gaps later

    *Try it on first so you don't go too low - it'll itch if you do.

    ***Glue most likely won't hold as well, so only do if you're planning on not wearing it long or for gaps, like I did.

    This will take forever, I highly suggest partially pawning it off on willing friends/family or doing it while watching T.V.

  • How to make a superhero costume. Poison Ivy Costume - Step 5
    Step 5

    Set up newspaper outside to paint on.

    Tape area of your shoes you don't want painted, I wanted my bottoms red (it makes me feel fancy haha)

    Fill your shoes with crumbled up newspaper so they don't get painted

    Spray paint greeen

    Step 6

    If you want the bottoms red:

    Wait till green paint dries

    Tape plastic wrap over the green to avoid getting as much red on it.

    Spray paint red and lean on something to dry

    *You risk altering the shade of green on the shoes, but I think it looks better with the different shades

  • Step 7

    Go over any Red that permeated your barrier by

    A) Spraying shoes again

    OR

    B) spraying large amounts of green spray paint onto a magazine, then using a paint brush to paint over the red spots

  • Step 11

    Sew into a tube shape measuring around your forearm

    flip the tube inside out

    Hem the top of the glove
