Impressive Made-From-Scratch Mystique Costume

mystique

It’s not easy being blue, but cosplayer Some Like it Blue makes it look appealing. She invested over 70 hours into her Mystique costume between making the jumpsuit, styling the wig, casting the face prosthetics, and applying the make-up. Whew. She probably doesn’t have the energy to be a bad guy after all of that. Here’s a peek at how the Mystique magic happens:

And the makeup – my favorite part – takes two hours to apply each and every time. I use Mehron’s Paradise Makeup AQ in Azur blue as the base color, and mold each scale separately out of Mehron’s Extra Flesh, placing them in the same basic patterns that are seen in the movies. I then set the scales with Fixative A, a prosthetics adhesive. After it all dries, I paint over the scales again with Azur blue. Then, using a paint brush, I paint the scales with Dark Blue to contrast with the lighter base color. Extra small scales are painted on, and the lips are darkened. I also use a very small paint brush to color the dark blue around my eyes as I would with eyeliner.
