How to Make a Poison Ivy Costume

How to Make a Poison Ivy Costume

Poison Ivy is one of the sexiest Batman villains of all time

This outfit has many uses can be reused for Ceremonies for us Pagans

For the Hair
Poison Ivy is known for her Deep Red Hair but you can also go with Green Hair as well
Buy a red wig or use hair dye to dye your hair red.


Purchase a cheap green leotard, bodysuit, or swimsuit, along with 30 or so fake ivy leaves. (You can buy the leaves at any craft store such as Michael's.) Using a needle and thread, sew the leaves onto the leotard in a pattern that resembles climbing ivy. In the comics, the ivy covered her entire middle, from her top to her hose. You can emulate that look if you wish, but it will take more than 30 leaves; patterns of climbing ivy work just as well if you don't have as many leaves.

Hose and Gloves
Buy a pair of green panty hose and a pair of short gloves that match the hose's shade of green. In the comics, Poison Ivy's gloves reached about midway down her forearm, but you can make them longer or shorter if you wish. Some experts suggest purchasing cheap white hose and gloves, then using green dye to color them. This allows you to match their colors more precisely.

Purchase a pair of green boots or short green shoes. Ideally, they should have a "V" pattern on top, similar to boots worn by Peter Pan. These are not necessary. Any green boots will do just fine. Use spray paint to color them green if they aren't green already.
