Information

Very last minute cosplay, completed within 3 weeks.

Started with a full blue morphsuit, and I cut the head off and secured the zip.

Then stitched a bra into the suit to give my chest more definition.

Then got a 6 metre roll of blue craft foam and covered it in shiny blue door paint.

Bought over a thousand blue nail beads of different sizes in tear drop and oval shapes, and applied these first with lots of nail glue, superglue and LOADS of patience. Then added false fingernails to hands and feet of the suit.

Then the laborious task of cutting and sticking down the scales.

The wig is a fancy dress shop item, glued down with Got 2B Glued hairspray.

The makeup is done with cheap liquid latex, then royal blue face paint, and then dark blue eyeliner and eyeshadow to bring out the details.

Et Voila!

Not happy with overall result, will consider remaking with a new much more well fitted suit and 3D puff paints.

I think your Mystique cosplay looks Fab! Was this you also on an interview from Oct Exp, about leaving a trail of blue scales wherever you went? ^_^
