Cosplay of the Day: This Mystique Doesn’t Have Us Feeling Blue
We’ve gotta hand it to this daring and innovative cosplayer who tackled one of the trickiest characters to emulate: ‘X-Men: First Class’ mutant Mystique.
It’s no easy feat at all — at all — to cosplay as Mystique. The actresses who have played her in film have complained about the painstaking makeup process, so tackling this blue-skinned mutant is a job for only the most creative and brave cosplayers.
Kelly Jane from the UK met the challenge head-on with the help of some very awesome makeup and her amazing application skills. While the costume was commissioned, we still think Kelly Jane deserves a standing ovation for creating the wig and doing all the makeup by herself. She also got a couple of friends to dress as Magneto and Professor X and pose with her at a comic convention last year — and man, those guys really nailed it, too. Professor X is a dead ringer for the real deal!
Kelly Jane does a lot of great cosplays over at her DeviantArt page, including video game and anime characters, and she’s also cosplayed as another ‘X-Men’ mainstay, Rogue. Check her out below and show her some love:
