Let's get into it.
(If you liked the Mystique Costume, here's the 'ible)
Step 1: Materials boy!
- Lots and lots of mirrors. Scrap is the best, and you'll probably get the scrap for FREE. The thinner the better.
- 1 jacket. (Leather recommender, if it's fake-artificial leather, even better.)
- 1 jeans, or some other pants. (You do NOT want them to be very tight.)
- Contact Glue/Cement.
- Glass/Mirror cutter.
- Drill or other rotary tool with grinding head. (This is not necessary, you can use sandpaper instead.)
If the jacket or pants are not black, you need to paint them. (Spray paint or dry cleaner's).
Step 2: Get crackin'
Remove all ugly edges, and cut the mirror into geometrical pieces, all shapes, all sizes.
Cut a lot of pieces, and when I say a lot, I mean A WHOLE F***ING LOT.
Step 3: Grind 'em up!
Get your drill or dremel going, if you can clamp them to something to get them secured, even better.
Place all your mirror pieces on a container with LOTS of water. Then take a mirror and grind the edges and sharp points to make them all smooth and soft to the touch. It's a very fast process, no need to over-do it.
If you don't have a drill with grinding head, you can use sanding paper, the one specially used for metal and strong materials.
