Poison Ivy by JessicaDru Poison Ivy by JessicaDru
Shamelessly using myself as reference for a fan-art of poison ivy. damn, i love that character. hell, i'd love to make a costume and wear it to comicon ... but i can't get past the whole "bare legs" part of the costume. gimme skin tight, cleavage outfits and i am fine. but ask me to show some leg and i'm a prude!

i'm weird. hehehe


check out my scrap here for a more advanced version of this sketch:

You really do imagine Poison Ivy well with this. It's definitely something I'd like to see more of. Very original...and yeah I did notice you used yourself for the model but, why not. :)

I'm really impressed with you female form stuff. I don't know to many female's that are good at that like you are. Very good work!

you could wear stockings, i've seen a pretty cool pair that have ivy wrapping around the leg, if you can do soemthing similar i think your legs are safe. it'd be an awesome costume. also since you have the figure and the red hair have you ever considered doing a dawn costume by Joseph Michael Linsner?

that's definitely an idea.
i have considered drawing dawn, but i've never read the comics.

Hah! Funny thing.. I feel the same way. I'll wear something skin tight, but the moment it gets to bare skin... Yikes.

This Character is my next costume actually. I am researching her many different looks before deciding. Any good recommendations?

I am so glad that you share my weirdness. i feel less weird! hehee
Oh awesome! i could give it some thought, what is your primary goal with the costume: comfort? sexiness? accuracy? and comic, cartoon or movie reference?

I've been researching lately, to see all the versions.
I've also been looking at other's costumes to see what works and what doesn't. Over all the plan is to make it so it flatters my body. I am considering trying to take her to a classic beauty...A bit noir style...
That would be somewhat closer to the cartoon, wouldn't it?
Maybe. Lol.

classic beauty would have to be out of the cartoon. they made her simple yet elegant.

Mmm, she's a yummy villainess! I would vote that you make the costume and just wear skin-coloured tights! That way you're not REALLY showing off so much leg if you're uncomfortable with it. Oh and take tons of pictures if you do decide to make a costume! :heart:

Um... ok. Why are you scared to show some leg? :?
From what I've seen here and here you have very lovely legs.

However you can definitely do a Poison Ivy costume with tights. Check out this one I got a picture of at Dragon*Con.

oh I know what you mean... sometimes you just have to do it... I cant really pose for a lot of my art.. they are mostly women :)

I think the drawing is very well done.. like a concept sketch you would see for a movie.. yeah that good
