Pick a Palette- Poison Ivy [Arkham Asylum Edition]

Some of you may know from my various tweets and Facebook posts that Batman:Arkham Asylum is my game du jour. I know, I know, I'm so frakking behind on the times, especially since Arkham City is already out! A close friend of mine gifted me this game and its been staring at me from my media shelf, unloved and un-played until recently. (I'm always wary about the time I carve out to play video games due to an unfortunate incident about 14 years ago where I was late picking up my younger sister from school because I got sucked into Chrono Cross.) Well, I finally popped Batman: AA into my PS3 a couple of weeks ago and I am hooked! I'll be honest, at first I thought it was a bit too easy, until the escaped convicts kept shooting Arkham's personnel because I wasn't fast enough (so brutal!). Also, when it went from having to take down 3 armed escapees to 8, I had several *ahem* "do-overs" until I got my stealth take-down just right.

I haven't quite reached Poison Ivy in the game yet, but I am totally digging the concept art for the game. For this pick a palette, I think the obvious choice would have been a bikini or something, but I came up with this summery running outfit (+ accessories) instead. To keep it from looking to pumpkin-y, I decided on a muted green top and shorts and a melon colored jacket. I also included a green iPod nano and Sigg water bottle, to keep your roots hydrated.
