I would realllllllyyy love to do a Poison Ivy cosplay for this year's Otakon.
Howeverrrrr...
I'm really not sure where to start.
Its not like anything I've ever done before.
However, I definitely want to do the version of her covered in leaves, and I'll probably mod it a tiny tiny bit~
The things I'm wondering are:

1. How will I attach the leaves and attach them WELL to both the boots/costume itself?

2. What do I use to make the costume out of? I've seen leotards, things like that, stretchy things used, however, I would love something that could REALLY show my figure and hug my body well. I don't have many curves, so I don't want to look like a stick. =(
I was thinking a corset would work well, buuuuut...I'm not so sure.

3. What should the gloves be made of? Definitely something that won't fall off my arms and I won't have to keep pushing back up constantly...

4. Where can I get a killer wig to wear? I've looked through the cosworx wigs, but I'm not really sure of them, since I've never bought or styled a wig from them before.

EDIT:

5. Where the hell can I get cheap plastic/artificial ivy leaves? heh.
