This Mystique Halloween Costume Won't Take 8 Hours Of Prep Like It Did For The Movie
August 2, 2014
When Jennifer Lawrence isn’t cleaning up at awards shows she’s in the makeup chair getting ready to play Mystique in the latest X-Men series. Apparently, it took nearly 8 hours to transform the Oscar-winner into the character–but don’t worry the Mystique Halloween costume won’t take you nearly as long to prep for. We promise.
All you need is a red wig, some spooky contacts (we found ’em!), a blue bodysuit and a few other accessories in the slideshow above, and you are good to go. Make it a group costume by enlisting your friends to play the other X-Men–Wolverine, Storm (my favorite!), The Beast, etc. The costume is skin tight, however, so we’d recommend cramming in a few extra crunches if you’re brave enough to do it.
