Here is another make-up post for ya! I’ve been messing around with a few different options. At this point I’d say that I’m partial to the green with red brows, but what do you think? Too Christmasy? The red-red look may read a little to MJ too. Not sure. Keep in mind this was just a first pass so it could still change. There are too many options! Green eyebrows, red eyebrows, freckles, no freckles, AHHHHH! I also plan on adding more green accents like veins in my neck and chest as well.
*Fun fact, the green shade is called “Nagini.” That’s right. Harry Potter lip gloss FTW.
I usually go for more obscure choices (cosplay hipster obvi), but the nice thing about a mainstream character like Poison Ivy is that there are so many versions to choose from and to be inspired by. This will be a mashup of all my favorite Ivy incarnations. For the record, Bruce Timm does my favorite costume, but my favorite “fun” version is the Arkham games. I was tempted to go Arkham on this, but I honestly don’t know if I could go a whole day in head-to-toe green body paint. Coincidentally, that’s the only thing that keeps me from bathing in purple paint and going as Grimace. Otherwise I think my love of hamburgers would make it the perfect fit! 😛
Stay tuned for more posts! I’ll be going a little bit into the Ivy costume and the construction of Beetlejuice’s parasol.
