Halloween Costumes 2012: Poison Ivy

    My favorite female villain of all times is Poison Ivy, portrayed by Uma Thurman in "Batman & Robin" (1997). Uma Thurman transforms herself into the ex botanical scientist turned Batman and Robin's sexy arch-nemises. Dr. Pamela Isely becomes Poison Ivy after confronting a co-worker who is using her research for another purpose she did not intend, he attacks her and pushes her agains plat poisons and toxins that transform her into a deadly vixen.

    Poison Ivy has really great wardrobe in the movie. Some of the looks are not too complicated to re-create if you have the imagination and time to work on them for your costume:

Pair a lon sleeve tight green top with a pair of black leather leggings (currently on trend), a pair of Fall high leather boots and long gloves. You can paint the tips of the gloves red to get the same look. Find a wide black belt and decorate the buckle with plastic leafs to complete the look.

Attach green plastic leafs to a body suit, pair with green tights and a super hero cape.

Get a long red hair wig and style it to look like Poison Ivy's look. Using eyelash glue and green plastic leafs create the leaf arches around your eye after doing your make up.

If you don't have the time or the imagination to make the costume yourself then you can always buy one:
