Morgan, also known as Methyl Ethyl Cosplay, has been working on an armored version of Poison Ivy’s costume for the past couple of months. We shared her incredibly detailed work with Worbla on the breastplate previously, but she’s moved onto crafting other sections of the armor. She cut several leaves out of the material for the leg armor and added Worbla to craft foam using the sandwich method. She also made a headpiece, hip armor, and plating to go on her boots and hands. She just finished building a prop for the costume, too — Poison Ivy clearly needs a giant plant by her side. Morgan sculpted the creature from Worbla and used expanding foam for touches like the tongue. The vicious plant stands almost as tall as she does.
