Halloween 2014: Poison Ivy
The name's Ivy, Poison Ivy. 
Halloween parties are upon us and I used it for an opportunity to bring out a cosplay which I haven't worn in almost 3 years;Poison Ivy. 

I wore it at Banzaicon 2012, in like 3 degree celsius weather, so, needless to say I'm glad it was slightly warmer this time...If you want to see photos of the cosplay 3 years ago, feel free to check out my gallery.

Character: Poison Ivy
Series: Batman

Oh, and Happy Halloween!
Royals by missy2laina
One of my only regrets of NYCC is that I wasn't able to have a photoshoot with Margaery in a garden like setting, hence the lack of shoots... 
Oh well, here's one that was taken and turned out pretty well 

Series: Game of Thrones
Front to back: Cersei (Rowan) 
Jeoffery :iconepicallyinept: 
Margaery (Myself)
Sansa (Sarah)
