Redditor drbonedaddy posted a picture of his girlfriend’s Halloween costume. She is the Marvel character Mystique, as portrayed in the X-Men movies. The process of constructing the costume went like this:
Wasn't easy at all. The spandex suit had to first be landmarked, then painted. Each side took three to four hours and had to be allowed to dry overnight. Applying the latex for the scales on her face and painting it took two to three hours as well. She dyed her hair for the costume which was another hour. So in total it was roughly a 10 hour process over the course of a few days. I'm sure there are some very intricate costumes posted on here, but it really was a painstaking process to make it come together
She even dyed contact lenses to make her eyes yellow! And what did drbonedaddy select for a costume? He was also an X-Men character, the lesser-known Gambit.
