Poison Ivy Bodysuit

Poison Ivy Eye Makeup

In the movie Uma Thurman wears attachments around her eyes. If you can find replicas of these then that is great. If not, you can always wear makeup that looks similar.
Poison Ivy Wig – Poison Ivy Hair

If you happen to have long hair you can dye your hair red just like the character in the Batman and Robin movie.
