I'd say that's a good answer. The process would be about the same in most photo editors, since they all have roughly the same functions and share most of the same heritage. Personally, I'd start by getting as close as I could with costume and makeup, then use software to take it the rest of the way. Then again, I know folks who could probably construct a build-up costume which would let them believably walk out on stage as a 9-foot-tall blue alien with prehensile tail. (http://www.costume.org/ -- I'm officially a Journeyman, but only because I happened to be drafted to help a Master costumer present a winning contest entry.)
I have seen people do some great jobs of exactly what you want to do on the site www.deviantart.com, maybe you could try asking some of the users there who have already done it.
You want to turn yourself blue? Colour-balance, RGB, "levels", hue, that sort of thing? L
