Become a Shape-Shifter in the X-Men Mystique Costume
If you’re a fan of Marvel and the X-men more specifically, then you’ll undoubtedly consider getting the X-men Mystique costume. Everyone can’t represent the good guys, so you can go as Magneto’s close ally. The costume isn’t a knock-off, as it’s an officially licensed product, so you can count on looking like the real character from the comics, movies, and TV shows.
Unless you completely dye your skin blue, you won’t be able to portray Mystique exactly. Fortunately, the costume features a blue bodysuit for you to wear. The bodysuit also has a white tunic attached to it. To keep the tunic in place, there is a matching vinyl skull belt included with the outfit.
Natural redheads won’t have to wear a wig to emulate Mystique’s red hair. If you don’t have red hair and aren’t willing to dye it to portray her, then you can simply wear the red wig that’s packaged with the costume. A wig cap doesn’t come with it to keep your real hair in place, so make sure that you have your own.
Mystique’s jumpsuit is available in a variety of sizes. You can choose between small, medium, and large sizes to ensure that you can one that will give you a good fit. A lesser known part of the character’s outfit is a pair of gloves. Being an officially licensed product, you’re even provided with a pair of white ones.
Unfortunately, you aren’t given a pair of boots to wear with the outfit. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise though since costumes rarely come with footwear. Finding a pair of sexy white boots to wear shouldn’t be a problem though.
The jumpsuit will ensure that your body has a blue color just like Mystique does. However, it won’t cover your face. To really look like her, you’ll need to put on some blue face paint. Make sure that you don’t forget to order it when you get your costume.
It’s important to note that the X-men Mystique costume is made from 100% polyester. Hopefully, you’ll read the instructions before cleaning it. If you toss it into the washing machine, it won’t turn out well. Instead, you’ll need to take the time to spot clean it.
There really aren’t many things to complain about when you purchase this outfit. The bodysuit and white tunic by themselves will make you look much like the character. However, you’ll need to complete the look by wearing blue face paint which doesn’t come with the costume unfortunately.
To make up for it though, you are provided with a nice red wig. You’ll only need to get yourself a wig cap to wear with it. The missing boots aren’t much of a problem as long as you have a suitable pair to wear.
The X-men Mystique costume is a great choice for female fans of the Marvel franchise. You’ll look just like her complete with the blue body and bright red hair. If only you could truly transform into anyone you wanted to like she has the ability to do.
