Step 1: Materials and clothes... or lack of.

To get naked, painted, and be able to transform into anyone you ever wanted, you'll need:

- Blue paint (Sky blue).
- Blue paint (Dark blue).
- Airbrush.
- Air compressor.
- Foam sheets.
- Hot glue gun.
- Yellow contacts.
- Orange hair paint. (Spray, the ones used on partys).
- Liquid latex.
- Plastic sheet. (Any material you want, but must be thin and flexible, I used shower curtains.)

Now, take off your clothes..

Step 2: Scales

Take a look at an actual photo of mystique, the one from the movies obviously. It will be your best inspiration to make your own. This is how I made my own:

Cut your plastic sheet in ovals, or other shape so you can attach them to each part of your body where mystique has scales, then put the plastic shape on a flat surface.
Cut your foam sheets in the shape of mystique's scales.
Glue them with hot glue to the plastic.

Instead of using foam board or if you are too lazy to cut one by one, you can use hot glue lines, blobs, or any shape you want directly on the plastic sheet, so when the hot glue dries the hot glue will be hard.

No need to paint the at this point, the ones in the pics are painted because they are post-halloween.

Far out. You look fantastic, great job. However potentially embarrassing for men attending the same event. William has a mind of his own, no stopping him when he has a mind to to show appreciation.
hmm..... "William...."
Uh huh, I might try this for Halloween!<planning my XMen workout now>. Awesome costume, I hope I can do as good of a job as you :)

This is the first I'ble I've seen that includes instructions to "Now, take off your clothes.

Getting the color right would really be important as evidenced with the photo comparison to the smurfs.  You don't want yours to be confused with that other costume. 

I suppose depending on how daring a person is you could range from au natural to pasties to leotard(s) to several other bra type devices to cover the goodies.  Then use lots of painted on latex scales to complete the camouflage.

Awesome! Very beautiful...keep the good work!

Thanks!! Much appreciated!
I really like the costume, but some of the pictures you put in here were colored with Photoshop, right?
Skyriam (author)  tropicalbear2 years ago
Thanks! The pictures were taken with different cameras, that's why they're all different. The only "mod" I did was the Auto-Correct in Office's Picture Manager.

Great makeup! The scales add a lot to the mix.
About how long did it take to spray all the paint on?
Skyriam (author)  garenburg2 years ago
Very fast! The airbrush makes all the magic. Total time: Less than 10 minutes, and I think I'm exagerating.
