Burlesque Poison Ivy by arktoi Burlesque Poison Ivy by arktoi
I didn't know whether to add this under Costumery or Photography...but since I didn't take the photo (but I did make the costume) I put it under costumery. =)

My original design Burlesque Poison Ivy outfit, worn at DragonCon 2011. I entered this in the Comic Book Babes contest, but sadly I didn't win anything.

I made the entire costume, with the exception of the gloves and stockings, which were ordered from welovecolors.com. My shoes were plain pumps purchased on ebay for $10, which I then covered with green glitter and sealed with clear acrylic sealant. This was my first time making a real steel-boned corset, and I'm super happy with how it turned out!

It's not visible here, but the skirt has a long train trimmed in emerald green lace, and the border of the entire skirt is hand-stencilled with a flower and vine pattern, which I then embellished with individual swarovski crystals, also by hand. Lots of tedious work. The jewelry I happened to find last minute at a korean gift shop XD

Photo by Anna Fischer, who is absolutely amazing.

How long would it take you to make something along the lines of this but not as detailed for commission?

It would take a while, since I'm a full-time student and work full-time as well. Send me an email, x23.616@gmail.com and we can talk about details if you're interested in something.
