Cosplay Guide: X-Men Eye Lenses from Eyesbright.com
August 1, 2013 By Holly Clarkson
With the new X-Men Days of Future Past film currently in filming, and Halloween only round the corner, Eyesbright.com have pulled together some of their favourite ways to recreate the famous X-Men characters:
Mystique, a mysterious mutant shape-shifter, can alter her appearance to assume the traits of others, making her one of the most idolised characters in the series. Her electric blue skin and yellow eyes give her particular sex appeal, creating the edgy effect of a villain-come-good.
Jennifer Lawrence will reprise her role as Mystique in the new movie, providing X-Men fanatics with renewed enthusiasm for her character’s costume. Combine blue body paint with a set of X-Men Mystique Lenses, textured sequins and orange, wet hair for the ideal effect.
Nightcrawler is the son of Mystique, a devil-tailed black mutant with fang teeth, yellow eyes and pointed ears. Nightcrawler is able to teleport himself, leaving stunned onlookers staring vacantly into a crimson puff of smoke.
Combine a Matrix-length leather jacket with black face-paint, black hair spray and some Beetlejuice Lenses; adding a devil tail will impress onlookers no end.
Wolverine has animal-like senses, super-human strength and an ability to heal himself from wounds and diseases. Played by Hugh Jackman, his character is most synonymous with the X-Men franchise, combining rough masculine prowess with an undercurrent of childhood angst.
For the Wolverine enthusiasts out there, combine a muscular torso (this may or may not take some work!) and leather jacket with a rough-‘n’-ready beard and Natural Brown Contact Lenses; a plastic set of Wolverine knuckle knives are also a must.
Phoenix is a mutant born with telepathic and telekinetic powers; a caring, nurturing figure whose relationship with Cyclops provides added zest to the plot. Phoenix’s dazzling red hair gives her superwomen-like qualities which endear her to fans all over the world. Her empathy and kindness make her an integral member of the crew.
If you have rich red hair then this is definitely the character for you, combine with a leather biker suit and a set of Red Tornado Lenses.
Storm is one of the most popular X-Men characters, played with superb conviction by Halle Berry. Storm has a unique ability to manipulate the weather, turning tranquil sunny countryside scenes into a thunderous, wind-swept rage. Storm’s use of magic gives her witchlike characteristics, reflected by her jet black and silver costume.
Create your very own Storm look with a set of X-men Storm white contact lenses; combine with a leather biker suit and silver and dark grey hair spray.
Making your very own character costumes for this year’s Halloween is easy with just a bit of imagination and some added creativity.
