I managed to buy a blue leotard as the base of my Mystique from X Men Costume from a dance shop. I then used ‘wonderweb’ to attach small scales in a darker coloured blue to the rest of the costume (using a picture of Mystique guidance) especially along the arms, hips and legs – these were then ironed on in place.

I then used fabric paint to add more detail and ridges. I used facepaint for my face and used a neon spray for my hair. Before applying the spray I used a wet look gel to slick it back and stop the spray from colouring my hair. I did detail on my face in a deeper shade of facepaint.

Safe to say – the party was a night to remember!
