Cosplay is cool, and one of the coolest things is that no matter how often you see the same costume, it’s rarely an exact replica. Each cosplayer adds his or her own touches and modifications that make a costume unique. It may only be a difference of fabric or wig styling, but it’s there. These Black Cat and Poison Ivy costumes made and worn by La Esmeralda are great examples. They are beautifully created and photographed, which helps them stand out from the crowd.

rockabilly poison ivy and batman

Classic takes on comic book characters like Batman, Poison Ivy, and Nightwing can be fun and well done, but I like seeing something different. Cosplayer Cherry Valance and friends saw Denis Medri’s 1950s rockabilly re-design of the franchise and got inspired. They got all dressed up as the characters and went out for a milkshake date and fun at Zak’s Diner in Ottawa. It’s all wonderfully charming, and I adore the costumes and poses. I would have loved to see the looks on the faces of other patrons in the establishment.

The DC Comics Bombshell toy line offer a brand new take on familiar characters. Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn are among those who got new outfits, and they’re definitely the types of costumes that make an impression. Vanora Haunt and her friend dressed like the Bombshell Harley and Ivy and they make a duo that would stop any hero in his or her tracks. They did a fantastic job of creating replica costumes based on the toys. Harley has the perfect leather jacket, and I can’t get over how good Poison Ivy’s body paint is.

The Missouri Botanical Gardens are the perfect location for this Poison Ivy photo shoot. Cosplayer Desiree Alana makes for a beautiful and almost innocent Poison Ivy, but don’t be fooled. Behind that sweet smile lurks a mind up to no good.

What happens when three of Gotham’s villains hang out? They plot and plan devious acts, of course. This trio of steampunked Penguin, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn is striking – they’re lovely and scary all at the same time. The details are all there, and they’ve even managed to make the tiny hats look awesome (that doesn’t always happen in steampunk costumes).

Cosplayed by Sweets4aSweet (Penguin), Pretty Lush Cosplay (Poison Ivy), and Courtney Hanson (Harley Quinn). Photographed by Amanda “Elemental” Irwin.

Poison Ivy’s costume is one of the most versatile. Though you can interpret any costume in a different way from the classic style (and sometimes there’s more than one classic style), I think that Ivy’s outfit is especially suited to be twisted, revamped, and turned into something different. I’ve seen it mixed with steampunk and Victorian aesthetics more than once with varying degrees of success.

This version works for me because of the different textures – lacy gloves, leaves, satin-y skirt, ruffles, curly and straight hair – it makes for an eye-catching combo.
