I'd love to try this - I think with latex.

Don't know when, so I'll just leave it here in 'planned'. :)

I have one slot available at May Expo. But I still haven't done Silk Spectre yet. Oct Expo is penned in already.. Unless there are some other suitable Cons Mystique might have to wait untill 2011. :I

Hi Emmy ^_^
This is how I'm planning to make the costume:
I'm going a latex route.
I'm thinking of making the costume as seperate sections..head, sleeved bolero type cropped top, and leggins. (I found a cheap place to get latex clothing seconds. So a mask, sleeved top and leggins wont be massively expensive, and they will be a great start point.)
Headpiece will consist of mask similar to catwoman with wig attatched.
Sleeved top will be cut/altered so the neckline and hemline come close to the screen costume. My boobs will be incorporated into the top itself - First I will make either a plaster body cast or a duct-tape type dummy, and then sculpt the boobs onto that. Then mould the front with boobs from liquid latex and incorporate them onto the latex top.

Similarly the waistline of the leggins will be scooped close to the screen costume.

Skin texture details will be applied all over and then the costume will be painted with latex paint.
Exposed parts of the body will be covered with body paint.

That's the plan. How hard this will be...ummmm ..If I suceed it shall be amazing. :)

If you're wanting to do Shiva I think you could do it a completely different way - I'll pm ya.

May take a lil time as I have to go through all those processes. The only part I'm not confident about is painting latex effectively. If I can find out how to do that I think the rest will be quite easy.

Aww thanks its my christmas gruff XD Its getting shaved off probably after full sirius shots *im bright blonde which means my beard never really comes through that much, im using brown mascara on it for sirius and black for logan* im not sure when this is for tbh it might be for when i go to an expo again :) mabye for the star wars one XD

ps: my blood is extremely thick It sounds made up but I dont rightly know what cold feels like XD i know its dangerous as I can get hypothermia if im not careful. but it has a double edge to the sword as heat acts like kryptonite and makes me feel sleepy and ill :(

so how are we planning on doing this mystique...bodysuit?

Oh thats a great idea using mascara to darken the beard, it really works well. I would have assumed you were naturally dark if you hadn't said. :)

Oh Mystique is gonna be a combination of latex parts and body painted parts. In my head it sounds easy - sometimes these things don't always work out that way when you come to do them though. If I can learn how to paint latex the blue colour the rest will be easy to make I think, once I've made my body double to mess about with sculpting. I cant wait to sculpt some epic looking bewbs! =P

Thanks, if it doesn't look convincing to me in progress I won't pursue it. I'm hoping it will look good though. :)
