This version of Poison Ivy was commissioned by photographer James Young for his website Allablur.com.

We had about a week to get everything together since the shoot was at a private loft residence in downtown Los Angeles. The top and bottom pieces were covered with individually sewn on ivy leaves. Which means I was taking apart large lengths of floral ivy to get the right size and color of leaf for the outfit. I then had to pin each one in place (while making sure there was some stretch left) hand sew it down so you couldn’t see the sewing and then make sure I had all the tiny pins out.

James had his make-up stylist add the wig and eyebrows.

A fun & quick project. 🙂
