Mystique was a lot of fun to do. For the hair we used bright red Bulldog Colour Power Gel and some more Brylcream. We used blue facepaint on her face, but it took a long time to get an even colour, and since time was running out, we switched to blue fabric paint for her neck, arms and feet.

Her shirt was originally turqoise and black, so it first had to be covered with a layer of white pvc before it could be painted blue. It became very stiff upon drying and we had to wet it before she could put it on again, but as it dried it took on her body shape perfectly. All the scales were drawn on afterwards.

Heerlik! Interesting that you've chosen all different pictures than me... don't you want to add a tad bit of background on the x-men and Illiria???

The links to the wikipedia articles is in the first post. Anyway, most of my hits come from Google searches, and I suspect those people already know the stories.

"...most of my hits come from Google searches" Gmpf! And a few long standing readers, albeit very quietly so!

You all looked stunning. Wish I was there to witness it.

Okay, dis die eerste keer in 'n laaaang tyd dat ek actually terug kom na 'n blog toe om na 'n paar foto's te kyk.

Wow.
