Sexy Poison Ivy cosplay is super easy, and thrifty. So beautiful, yet so deadly, who doesn’t love Poison Ivy? An enemy of Batman, Poison Ivy is depicted as one of the world’s most prominent eco-terrorists. Obsessed with botany, environmentalism and with an unnatural love for fauna and flora, she uses toxins from plants and her own bloodstream to create chaos. With good intentions, her criminal activities are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment. Fellow villain Harley Quinn (considering cosplaying her one of these days) is her partner-in-crime, and possibly be her only human friend.
How to Make Poison Ivy Cosplay
For my first cosplay blog post, I would like to tell you how I cosplayed Poison Ivy, and what you need. It’s a really simple cosplay to do, especially if you’re short on time and money.
What you need:
1 red wig
1 green bra and underwear
lots and lots of ivy leaves
green tights (if you want, this is optional if you want the sexy look)
whatever shoes you prefer (you can go all out and make green boot covers)
Where to Buy Poison Ivy Cosplay items and the Cost
I got my red wig on for this Poison Ivy cosplay on eBay. I searched for red wigs, sorted it from lowest to highest, and picked the one that either had good reviews or seems of good quality, at a good price point. I bought mine for $12. It’s not the best quality, but you don’t need the best quality, you just need one for the night. No one will really see the fine details. Unless you’re planning on going to a Comic Convention, then I recommend that a good quality one. Which, of course, will come at a higher price point.
Most people would then purchase a corset for their Poison Ivy cosplay, but, you don’t really need it. Be creative, and just use your green bikini. It’ll be a lot cheaper than purchasing a corset. I bought my bikini for $5 at the mall (on sale). The ivy leaves actually took a bulk of the total cost, at around $25, all from eBay. And like most things you buy from eBay, you don’t really know the size/colour/quality you will get. Just search around for the best price. Amazon is also another option, and if all else fails, just go to your local craft store and search the floral area. However, they’re a bit more pricey.
