So my awesomesauce husband is taking me to Boston ComicCon this month! This will be my first con and also my first time cosplaying and I'm super excited! I'm going as Poison Ivy (kinda vanilla, but she's always been my favorite!) and I could not, for the life of me find green tights. This lead to an internet search to see if you could, indeed, dye your own tights. I didn't find a whole lot but what I did see was most people use Kool-aid or food coloring. So I tried both!
I started with these, which I dyed with Kool-aid. Just your regular sheer nude pantyhose. I kinds just threw a bunch of green and yellow and blue Kool-aid in some boiling water and stirred it til I liked the color.
They came out kinda army green/olive-y from mostly lemon-lime Koolaid and half a pack of lemon & blue raspberry. I love it!
As for the food colored ones, I started out with yellow opaque tights. Half priced at Target booyah!
I stirred both pair religiously, but the opaque pair still came out a skeesh marbled. I actually rather like them that way, but you really can't tell that much when they are on. Its easier to see when they are hanging up.
It was so super easy and I'm stoked to wear them!
