Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman - Batman) Costume Make-Up by Kandee

This is Kandee Johnson's take on one of Uma Thurman's makeup styles in Batman & Robin (costume #2). The video tutorial is just under 30 minutes in length so be prepared to sit for a while or fast forward when you feel the need.

I was mostly pleased with the final results. I kind of felt like there were a few unnecessary or repetitive makeup applications. I also would've paid more mind to scale. The wig looks a bit too big and heavy and the leaf mask also looks too large for my tastes. Almost bird like. Not sure about the foil either. Beyond that this video is a perfect example of how a warm Autumnal color palette can work for Poison Ivy. It's true - plant motifs do come in more than just green. I very much appreciate Kandee's enthusiasm. The opening bits were fun (if not a tad weird - but in a good way).
