Poison Ivy costume - photos!

Earlier this year i made a Poison Ivy costume for Australian burlesque performer Amelie
This month, Amelie teamed up with the incredible Matchless Snapshots for a photo shoot, and i'm so happy with the results!

The costume consists of an emerald green silk dupion corset, in a high-backed underbust style with garters.  The corset is embellished with custom-made embroidered lace leaves (made in metallic green & black thread) which have been beaded using Swarovski Jet bicone beads.

The Bra has a light nude base with emerald silk cups and is entirely covered with black french lace to give a delicate touch to an otherwise severe costume.  I also made a pair of matching lace french-cut panties and embellished both the bra and panties with Swarovski flat-back rhinestones in Jet, Emerald and Vitrail Green.

Worn under the corset, bra and panties is a pair of pasties and a C-string with the same embroidered lace leaves as the corset - all designed to give the appearance of near-nudity..  Very saucy!

Thank you to my gorgeous client / Model / Hair stylist / Makeup artist: Amelie
and to Rachel at Matchless Snapshots in Victoria, Australia for her incredible photography!
