This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jessica, the 'Poison Ivy' costume creator:
This costume was one of my favorites to make and wear out! It was a huge hit at my brothersí Halloween party and didnít make a dent in my bank account!
∑ The hunter green leotard purchased at a dance store. Lucky for me, I found it for $5.00 on the sale rack!
∑ I bought the green tights at Spirit Halloween, along with the red hair spray. Those were no more than about $8.00.
∑ The most expensive part of this costume was the leaves which I found at AC Moore. All together they were about $16.00.
∑ I glued the leaves around my front neckline and in different areas on the leotard. I wrapped the top of each of my boots to give the extra ivy effect to the costume.
∑ After curling and spraying my hair I used bobby pins to keep my hair in place and hold in a few of the leaves.
∑ The makeup was simple. I did my usual routine and my friend used green eye makeup to draw in ivy plants around each eye. I used a little hair spray to paint each of my eye brows and red lip stick for my lips.
∑ Lastly, I put some leaves around my arm and a gold belt around my waist.
∑ Voila! Everywhere I went people went crazy over this simple, DIY Poison Ivy costume!
