Today I put together a costume for a Halloween contest being held by Orchard Corsets, and I thought I’d share the results.
The brief was to use one of their corsets in the creation of a costume. I decided to use my lovely leather underbust corset and pair it with my Pinup Girl Clothing Film Noir dress in green velvet, to form the basis of a Poison Ivy costume.
The corset I’m wearing is the CS-411 in leather. It’s an underbust corset especially designed for shorter ladies (I’m 5’2″).
Last night, I used a hot glue gun to attach alligator clips to the back of a strand of fake ivy (bought at Spotlight) to create a hair accessory. The rest of the ivy I draped over my shoulders.
I curled my hair last night using my foam bendy rollers and I left the ringlets fairly intact for this look.
My makeup included metallic green eyeshadow with a heavy black kohl eyeliner, plus metallic green lip colour.
If you have time, I’d love to have your vote for me to win on Orchard Corset’s website: http://woobox.com/a548qj/vote?web=1
What do you think of my finished costume? Do you have plans for a Halloween costume?
