17 DIY Poison Ivy Costume Ideas

poison ivy costume

Poison Ivy is a popular character in the DC Universe, but she’s also one of those villains that can be difficult to dress up as. If you’re looking for an easy DIY Poison Ivy costume idea, try any of this fun and easy DIY Poison Ivy costume ideas!

Wear all green.

You can wear all green, or you can go for the full-on Poison Ivy costume. If you’re going for a more subtle look and don’t have time to make your own costume (or just don’t want to), we have some options below.

  • Green shirt with black pants and shoes: This one is simple but effective and it’s easy enough that even beginners can pull it off! Just grab yourself an inexpensive shirt, pair it with some dark jeans and sneakers, then add some green lipstick and eye shadow so that your face matches what’s on top of those clothes!

Or wear all red and green.

You can also wear all red and green. This is a classic costume choice, but it’s easy to make your own with a few inexpensive items.

  • Wear a red shirt and green pants (or vice versa).
  • Wear a green shirt and red pants (or vice versa).
  • Wear a red shirt, green pants, and a green bow tie or bow tie clip if you want to be extra creative! If so: * Purchase one online or at your local party store. When choosing between rhinestones vs pearlized beads for your neckwear go with rhinestones because they are much more durable than the latter kind. If you don’t want to spend money on an entire ensemble then try just wearing different parts of this look separately: For example, The hat could be made out of felt instead!

Add leaves.

If you want to be more creative, add leaves.

  • Make a crown of leaves with your hair and wear it as part of your costume.
  • Add some fake ivy leaves to your clothes and shoes (basically anything that comes in contact with the ground). You can buy these at any craft store or online (like here). They were cheap!
  • Put on an old pair of jeans or shorts, cut out holes in them, then fill them with plastic bags filled with shredded paper until they look like they have hundreds of tiny vines growing out from them.
  • This will also work well for this idea because it allows you to wear whatever shoes/sandals/boots/shoes-with-no-sole-at-all shoes that you want without worrying about wearing anything uncomfortable—just make sure they’re not too close together when walking around because nobody wants their feet crushed by plastic bags full of bugs!

Wear a crown of leaves.

You can use fake leaves, or you can make your own. Either way, this is a great way to go green and show off your DIY skills at the same time!

If you want to go all out, look for old branches from the forest that are still covered in green leaves. You could even bring them home with you and plant them in pots so they’re ready when Halloween rolls around again next year.

However, if there isn’t an abundance of real poison ivy around (and who wants that?), then don’t worry you probably already have what it takes right now, crayons.

Wear a giant leafy skirt.

  • Wear a giant leafy skirt.
  • Make sure it’s big enough to hide your face. If you’re not sure how much fabric is required, measure around the hips and add two inches (or more).
  • Use a green sheet of fabric, and cut it into a long rectangle. Sew up any loose ends and tie them off with ribbon. You could also use a large leafy wig for this look!

Go sexy and slinky with a pair of green pants or leggings, but add poison ivy leaves to them.

If you’re looking for an easy DIY costume, this is it. Go sexy and slinky with a pair of green pants or leggings, but add poison ivy leaves to them. You can use any top that has a wide neckline and sleeves—think dress shirts, tank tops, and even polo shirts! And don’t forget to add some killer accessories like jewelry in green tones as well.

Carry around a bottle of poison ivy potion.

If you don’t have time to make your own poison ivy potion, you can buy one at the store. Try to make it look like it is bleeding.

You could also add fake blood to the bottle and use that as a prop for your costume.

Make your own poison ivy makeup.

If you’re brave and want to go all-out on your poison ivy costume, here are some ideas:

  • Use green eyeshadow. If you don’t want to go as far as wearing green lipstick or foundation, try using some of the other colors in this gorgeous palette from Makeup Geek for their Green Eyeshadow Palette ($10). You can use one of their shadows as eyeliner and mascara (the lighter colors) or even their primer underneath your eyeshadow for extra staying power!
  • Wear a hat with leaves sprouting from it. This is an old trick from when I was younger—but now that I have more experience with DIY projects like these ones, I decided to try making my own hat out of fabric scraps instead of buying one at the store! In fact, if you’re going out tonight then wear this thing everywhere so people will think twice about attacking YOU because they saw how beautiful YOUR costume looked!

Put on some red lipstick that looks like it’s been bleeding, and then leave some red smudges on your face, too.

  • Use red lipstick.
  • Apply the lipstick with a makeup brush or sponge, or use a lip liner to line your lips first and then apply the lipstick. If you don’t have any red makeup brushes lying around (I don’t), try using an old toothbrush!
  • Smudge your face with more blood-like substance from where you’ve applied the first layer of color (it should be easy to find).

Shoulder-length wig with bangs and dark brown hair.

For those who are not confident about wearing wigs, this is the perfect DIY costume. You can buy a wig online and use a wig cap to keep it on your head. If you have short hair, you can grow out some bangs or cut them yourself with scissors.

Alternatively, if you have long enough hair that would work as an extension of your face (or just want more options), consider making your own wig out of brown fabric and then covering it in glue or tape so it stays in place when wearing the poison ivy costume!

Keep it simple with a Poison Ivy T-shirt.

If you’re looking for a simple way to dress as Poison Ivy, don’t be afraid of the green T-shirt. You can find them for sale online and in many department stores.

This costume works best with a green wig (available at most costume shops), so that’s what we’ll focus on here. Make sure your face paint matches exactly—or better yet, find one that looks like Poison Ivy’s bright orange skin!

If you want to be the sexiest villain at your next party, then this Poison Ivy Costume idea is for you! The costume includes all of the necessary components: a green bodysuit with leafy vines running up and down each side, arm puffs that look like they’re made out of leaves and vines (and even a hood!), as well as stockings that have actually been made from real leaves.

The only thing missing from this outfit is some kind of leafy vine growing from your head!

This costume is perfect if you want to look like an actual plant monster who lives in peace with nature—but does so by feeding on insects every night after dinner.

It’s also great for any situation where there will be lots of people around during the day when wearing it (like at school).

Try these ideas for an easy Poison Ivy costume.

  • Bulk up on the green. The best way to get Poison Ivy’s look is to wear lots of leaves and vines, both as part of your costume and in real life. You can use them as accessories, or just add them as decoration all over your body!
  • Wear a leafy skirt. This will help you achieve the illusion that you’re covered in ivy from head to toe—and if there’s anything more beautiful than an oak tree branch wrapped around someone’s torso (or waist), we don’t know what it is!
  • Wear a crown of leaves: This one may seem obvious at first glance, but it’s actually quite difficult to pull off without looking like an actual tree trunk with some branches sticking out here and there; however if done right they’ll make anyone look like they’ve been living off the land for months now…or maybe even years? That would be pretty impressive considering how fast poison ivy grows back after being removed from its host plant (a plant called Toxicodendron radicans).

There you have it, folks: a whole bag of Poison Ivy costume ideas. Whether you’re looking for something a little more formal or casual, we hope these will inspire you to put together your own gorgeous green getup.

Remember that there is no right or wrong way to dress up as the infamous villainess—so go wild Just make sure everyone knows not to mess with her.
