Poison Ivy of DC Comics by VandorWolf Poison Ivy of DC Comics by VandorWolf
So Poison Ivy is a costume I bought fabric/materials for this time last year, but I never actually got around to finishing it. However, I finished it this year for an upcoming Halloween Costume Contest and got photos in it today. So happy that I finally got to do Ivy since I've been a big fan of the character for over a decade.

Myself as Poison Ivy from DC Comics
Costume made by me

Thank you so much! It was a bodysuit made out of stretch material. Pretty sure it was some sort of lycra, but I bought it a long time ago and I forget what it was ^^;

You know, as a long time fan I am so used to "cute" Nova (ie. Kairi, Repunzal, ect.) that I was a bit shocked at "sexy" Nova, lol.
Truly though, this is a fantastic shot. The fact that you hand make costumes like that is absolutely amazing to me.

On another note, there are a couple things that I feel could be adjusted for this particular piece. The make-up in particular seems a bit off to me, though that may just be the lighting. I love how you did the eyes though the shading almost looks blue. With the lips I'd go for a darker tone of red. Definitely not softer (You rock the red lips) but something that better matched the shade of the hair. Also, you wanna be careful about combining intense lips with intense eyes. it can look a bit heavy. If you want one to pop, downsize the other - or so I've been told.
The only other thing, and this is just personal opinion speaking, is that you could try adding some sort of ivy accessory to the hair and/or arms to tie the whole piece together.

Any who, the whole point of this was to keep myself from squealing like a crazed fan girl at the sheer awesomeness of this photo. Truly you, and Twin, and Vander, and pretty much everyone else are amazing and I love being able to experience all that you share with us.

First, thank you so much! I'm definitely not used to doing "sexy" characters, but I really love Ivy.

I'm not sure why the makeup looks slightly blue because I definitely used green shadow ^^; So it might have been the lighting or maybe just the way the camera caught the colours. Either way, next time I do it, I'll try a different shade of shadow- perhaps a lighter green. The reason why I went with a softer shade of red was because of the "combination" rule of makeup. I feel like eyes are more alluring/captivating than lips so I wanted the focus on my eyes rather than my lips. Perhaps, I'll switch it up next time :) I'm always up for doing things differently to see how it looks. 
The Ivy I was basing my design on didn't have any leaves/flowers around her arms/hair, but I do like the designs where she has that (and I did add flowers/leaves in my hair when I did Jumpsuit Poison Ivy last year) so I'll probably add that next time, too. This time around, however, I didn't have any extra ivy leaves because the bodysuit took up way more leaves than I thought it would ^^;

Thank you so much for the feedback! Definitely food for thought :heart:

Compliments on the makeup and colours in general, because you've nailed that 'classic comic'-feel without making it cartoony and/or cheap looking.

Oh wow! And you just made mine! I am so glad the makeup and colours worked out. I tried to keep it classy, but dramatic at the same time so your comment really makes me happy! I was a bit worried the hair was a bit too red, but figured it would add to the "cartoony/comic" feel I wanted to deliver in this photo :heart:
