X-Men: Mystique cosplay by MagnetoMystique



“I’m not gonna be the face of a world that doesn’t exist.”

When your cosplayer name matches the character you’re portraying, chances are good it’s gonna be a skillful representation.

The Mystique half of cosplayer tandem’s MagnetoMystique’s rendition of Jennifer Lawrence’s Raven Darkholme/Mystique in mid-transformation from the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie, however (which won her best costume on Thursday at San Diego Comic Con ’18)? Fassbender Magneto voice: “Perfection.”

Yes Sir! All worth it! 💕 Two months in the making , 4+ hours each day at SDCC in makeup, many days and hours of design, drawing, painting her pattern on blue, sequining the transition – Yup all very worth it ! What an unforgettable blast !

Wonderful shot of our Mystique transforming into a army soldier (circa Vietnam 1970’s ) thank you @ohsnapbyjames -for capturing her so powerfully – we weren’t sure where we were headed when you asked us to come up the stairs- but you clearly had a backdrop you wanted. Love the angle , the lighting makes her look like she could cause some trouble . Cosplay makeup by @paint.in.red.fx , our version of mid transformation mystique inspired by #jenniferlawrence #daysoffuturepast, and Rebecca Lindsay NYCC2016. #marvel #marvelcosplay #magnetomystique #magnetocosplay #mystiquecosplay #mystique #comicon2018 #sdcc2018 #xmen #xforce #xmendaysoffuturepast #femalemystique #cosplay #cosplaying #daysoffuturepast #Comiconinternational #comiconinternational2018
