You've Been Plucked by AbbyDark-Star You've Been Plucked by AbbyDark-Star
Dragon*Con 2010

"Sorry love, you've been plucked"

My pride n joy, Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy. First of all this costume would NOT be what it is without the hard work and assistance of my VERY talented friends!

Mike Schiffbauer: leaf sculpts
Bodypainting: Nick Wolfe, Athena Zhe, Dr. Skull
AD Larue: Arkham Logo help

The assembling of the costume was done by me. I have to say while I am so proud of this costume, it was A LOT of work. A lot of painful work, lets just say I have burns on my legs from some of the vine applications!!

The bottom half is actually a dance stocking that is used for 'nude' scenes on stage. I modified it, painted it and then with help applied the vines to the suit. Because I had two days before Dragon*Con for this, we used hot glue. Hence, burns. I ended up having to put underarmor on and then duct tape my legs to protect my skin. Not fun. :(

The shirt was purchased and then dyed several times and then the logo added. I added the blue trim (hand sewed everything) and did the alterations so that the shirt was continually "open" like it is in the game.

The wig, now I am immensely proud of that. I took two wigs and lots of extensions and made the widows peak as well as the style. While I want to redo it eventually, I was very happy with the way it came out.

The panties I actually did because the sculpt didn't cover all my, erhm...areas. so I made an under layer of leaves to cover my bits.

Overall, I feel that I really did my best to be a screen accurate Arkham Asylum Poison Ivy.

I hope to eventually put her on again and do a location shoot!!

Well the vines were sculpted by a friend, I applied them to a bodysuit that was painted, then they were shaded on top...it was all quite involved. :)

Thank you :) I had help! Like I said- most of this costume is the sculpting which I didn't do.
