what leaves are on the Katy Perry costume ROAR,

Answer
Pauline,

After examining them closely with a large magnifying glass I do not believe they are real leaves. I believe they are silk and are made to resemble a large narrow leaf ficus tree or they could be from silk ornamental grass. There are no real leaves that would hold up to the abuse of Katy Perry in a music video. They would quickly deteriorate & fall off. If you want to duplicate it go to a craft store and look at all the very attractive silk plants they have now. Good luck!!!
