First, I spent awhile making the physical outfit. I used a bikini bottom and a strapless bra. I bought foam pieces and cut them into various shapes that were similar to Mystique's scales. I glued the pieces over the bra and swimsuit. I also had some foam sticking from the top of the bra, to try to hide the typical bra shape. After the glue dried, I put a couple coats of blue body paint on them. I did this a week before I actually wore the costume.

The day I dressed up in my Mystique Costume, I put on the top and bottoms. Then, I had my yellow contacts put in. Next, I used red spray paint to coat my hair and make it slicked back. Then, I had three layers of blue body paint applied to my body. I had to stand with my legs apart and arms apart to allow the paint to dry. It took an hour for the paint to become moderately dry. The issue I was having mainly was my arms and legs sticking together and ripping the paint off. I used powder makeup on the inside of my legs and arms, it seemed to stop the sticking problem.

Then, had scales airbrused to my body using regular airbrush paint and acrylic paint watered down. There are two different shades of blue, white, and black paint that were used in the airbrushing. Overall, it took about 7 hours total that day to get fully into costume. It was well worth it I think.

The Costume Finalists!

There was this costume competition at a night club and the theme was “comic book vs video game.” I had this idea to go as mystique from Marvel because I really like the homemade Mystique Halloween costume idea and that I didn’t think that anyone would think of it because of it being so hard to be all in blue!

I first got a blue full body leotard and I spent 3 days painting scales all over the costume in 3D fabric paint. I used a combination of a light blue, metallic black and normal black. I wanted to recreate the look of the scales so I looked at photos from the movie and tried to copy the look of the scales as best as I could. I am an art student so paying attention to detail comes easy to me!

I then did the same to a pair of shoes the same colour so I was blue all the way done. I covered my hands neck and face in blue face paint and continued the pattern of the scales on my face. It looked 3d and then I sprayed my hair red and wore yellow cat’s eye contacts. It did take a week of patience but it pulled off in the end, I came second!!!!!!!!

This particular version of Mystique was based on the film version and the point was to create a look that looked as if this was just her skin and no clothes, I think I did a pretty good job!

I purchased a royal blue morph suit online and cut the head along the seam and sowed at the neckline. Then drew onto the costume segments which were to be scale effect to the body with chalk. I glued sequins individually onto the top half of the breast design. This took around 2 hours! Then I used glitter glue to create lines and scale effect on the remaining half of the design, and scales round the sides.

For the face I used a combination of palate facepaint with a thicker liquid one. I then created the scales with flesh latex and then highlighted with different light and blue eye-shadow. I used dark eye-shadow around my eyes and on my lips and coloured my hair red after slicking back with a temporary spray.

Finally, I put in the yellow contacts and I was ready to go!
