    Wow great work. I'm actually going to start on a magneto helmet. I will hold off on using cardboard.

    Amazing work on her costume. I hope you guys had fun later that night ;)

    Fantastic job, especially with all the little bits for Mystique. When I did my GF up as Mystique a couple years back, it was all we could do to just get the forehead done; everything else was textured tight clothing and a boatload of liquid latex, which didn't look half as accurate as what you guys did.

    Not to take away from your Magneto, but that Mystique is simply aces.

    Wow. The Magneto on its own is VERY good! But that Mystique is just incredible! I think for first-timers you both are just blowing this away!

    I hope you won a few costume contests!

    I must say I like both outfits but you must admit that it is unfair that you have a cozy nice cloak and a helmet, while she has to poke herself in the eye (lenses) and wear.. well, nothing really. :p I think that next time, you should be mystique ;P

    Good job though, very nice outfits :)

    Thanks! :) Ya we considered doing liquid latex but wasn't convinced that it would appear the same as paint. This was an incredibly difficult costume, unless you used all the right materials and paints and all it just didn't turn out right. There is no shortcuts on this costume. :wacko

    haha thats what she said. I felt bad for her when we had to walk outside to the car.

    I don't know if I would make a good mystique, people would probably think I was an avatar or naked captain planet. ^_^

    We competed in the Night of Killer Costumes Contest at the Moon nightclub at Palms Casino in Las Vegas, but we were very dissapointed with it. it was basically just a normal night club night with a 3 minute pause to announce the winners from secret judges. about 15 people were considered worthy to enter the contest but only 3 had any mention. We were both *, because it was basically our only night to rock that costume due to the insane amount of work to put it on. Both my girlfriend and I wrote letters to the Palms Nightclub vice-president telling him how dissapointed we were. The costumes that won were all 8 feet tall and had flashy lights on them. 1st was pretty sick. It was a bumblebee transformer that actually transformed. He deserved to win. 2nd place winner got booed from the crowd because they didn't think he should of won and 3rd place was a 8 foot tall devil. He also was in the wrong contest. the contest we were in was a sci-fi contest, he should of gone to the ghostbar club were they were having a demon and undead contest. The last time I checked, The devil isn't sci-fi. oh well.

    Awesome costumes!!!

    The gf's mystique looks a lot better than the Xmen First Class "Giant forehead" version.

    Loving the helmet. The candy color really helps it pop!

    I am entirely jealous of your girlfriend.

    1. she is hot.
    2. she has a super crazy talented boyfriend
    3. she makes an AMAZING mystique
    4. she is hot
    5. i've always wanted a mystique costume. T_T

    If you ever think of selling the prosthetics as a kit, I'm going to be first in line!

    ( side note: i'm still incredibly happy with my own boyfriend. HAHA )

    YOU BOTH LOOK AMAZING.

    Best Mystique fan costume ever! The Magneto End Game costume is pretty spot on too! Love both of them.
    A little confused on the high heels though...

    HAha Thanks!! She is pretty amazing!! She is 5'8" and all the prosthetics are tailored to her. So I don't know how selling it would work.

    We both are jealous of your costume!! I don't think that anyone could pull off the rapunzel costume like you did.

    The high heels were because we were competing in a nightclub costume contest.

    That Mystique is FANTASTIC! Great work! I've wanted to try doing a Mystique in prosthetics like this for awhile now. You've really pulled it off! May I ask how much of the AA makeup you went through for this coloring?

    And I love that you set up one of Dexter's kill rooms to paint in!

    I just have to say that Mystique is absolutely stunning. I've seen some stellar things done here on the RPF, but I think this tops them all in its uniqueness.

    The only costuming techniques I know are sewing, and I find it rather easy since I've been sewing since kindergarten. And I've seen a lot of builds go on here with the foam and pep and the armor and helmets that all looks monstrously difficult to me.

    But THIS!! Gee, I know it's called 'a costume', but it is sooooo much more!!! Truly in a unique class all by itself!!!

    I would add that she was a brave lady to do this, but hell, with a body like who needs bravery??---just FLAUNT IT, sister!!!!

    Oh, and Magneto looks great too :)

    haha thanks buddy, sure, I'd be glad to let you know what we used. first off I bought, 8 oz blue, 4oz blue-purple, 4oz blue sheen, 4oz electric blue, 8 oz white, and 4 oz black. I used about 3 oz blue and 1 oz blue-purple on the base coat. The purple was laid down to off shoot the yellow in the skin tone, otherwise the base coat would of been more green, after the base I mixed roughly 1 oz blue, 1 oz white, and 2 oz blue sheen for the final layer, I then proceeded to take a spray bottle of black and white and mist the colors on to create a marbalized effect.
    Keep in mind that only alcohol based paint will work on silicone prosthetics, but you might wanna get some water based paint to get around the eyes, but alcohol based is a ***** to get off. We had to use denatured alcohol to get the majority of it off. The paint we used was temptu-pro
    Good luck and let me know if you need anymore help.
