Mutant : Mystique by jj-dreamworldz Mutant : Mystique by jj-dreamworldz
This year's group cosplay was X-MEN! And I was the super cool and sexy chameleon Mystique! I love the lady characters in x-men, they're so strong and kick ass but also messed up in their own special ways~

The plan was to go for the good old classic 90's x-men from the cartoon which I used to watch as a kid. (awesome intro music! haha). But the wig I got didn't turn out and I wanted my Mystique to look sexy and not so...well..retro; so I based mine off a figure instead. Luckily I wasn't too sick on this day but the (hooker) shoes I was wearing gave me terrible blisters, ah!

I'm wearing a body suit (blue makeup doesn't go so well with a white dress) and only my face is painted. I think I've learned a thing or two about blue make up now from my Shiva cosplay!

Love the photo! You make an awesome Mystique! Could I ask where you got your contacts from? I have a Nightcrawler cosplay and I'm trying to find yellow contacts that are much more vibrant like the ones in this photo.

Thank you! The place I got them isn't active anymore, BUT my contacts were called 'Moony' so if you just search 'Moony Contact Lenses' into google, there are lots of places that sell them! :) Hope that helps!

Thanks a lot! I managed to find them but they were sold out haha. My old contacts served well enough for my Nightcrawler costume anyways. I appreciate your help!

Amazing! I love Mystique's classic look too. May I ask what brand of face paint you'd recommend for a Mystique cosplay? I'm thinking about going as her to a con next year.

(And I know what you mean about the hooker boots. I went as Pixie one year, and my feet were killing me!)

Thank you!!! I used Mehron brand. It did rub a little onto my white dress but not that bad.

(seriously the things we do for cosplay, haha! hooker boots are a killer!)

You're very welcome! I've heard Mehron is a good brand.


 


Also, (sorry if I'm being nosy) do you remember where you got your bodysuit? I'm having a heck of a time trying to find one the right shade of blue, that doesn't look too shiny.

I made my body suit so that I could pick the fabric I liked best. Body suits are pretty easy to make, I used Kwiksew pattern for it. Hope that helps!
