Sexy Homemade Mystique Costume

I got my idea for Mystique because she is one of my favorite X-Men characters. I researched online and found a few techniques that I combined to come up with this Homemade Mystique Costume.

First, I pulled up images of Mystique from the internet and had them printed. After that, I put on my yellow contacts and I slicked my hair back and used 2 cans of red hair spray to color my hair – 30 minutes.

Next, my daughter drew a pattern on my legs and back and I did my face and chest. I got Metallic Silver fabric (3D) paint and filled in a pattern as best as I could to match Mystique’s photos online. This part took us about 2.5 hours.

Next, a friend of mine showed up and airbrushed me. The first layer was a white paint, the second layer was black accents on the scales and the third layer was a mixture of a glaze and pearlized blue paint. This took about 2 more hours.

The finished product was a REALLY cool Mystique. My boyfriend looks like Wolverine so we looked AWESOME together.

Hope you like it.

  1. how did you get the full yellow eyes? I’ve been looking for colored contacts to fit that part of my costume, but all i found is yellow irises.

  2. I have always wanted to be Mistique for Halloween but never had the guts too. Did u have issues with the paint rubbing off? if not what kind did u use? I always thought liquid latex would work but if the paint won’t rub off then that’s what I’d rather do.
