That’s so Raven: new superheroine cosplay pics

Virginia Mystique cosplay

Yay, more naked bodypaint cosplay! Today’s set is inspired by one of the most visually distinctive characters in all of comics, the mutant, shape-changing, blue-skinned, occasional X-Men supervillainess Raven Darkholme aka Mystique. She was my favorite part of the original X-Men film series, very much looking forward to seeing what Matthew Vaughn and Jennifer Lawrence do with her next summer in X-Men: First Class.

Donate button is still up. If you enjoy this kind of junk, and would like to support it continuing, do feel free to use it. Still trying to hit the $500 target, to cover a mobile version of the site, and faster/more bandwidth. Also, i very much need to hire someone who knows what they’re doing with electronics, and can integrate EL light strips into a costume (GOOD LUCK trying to figure out what that might be. I’m sure it’ll take hours of intense pondering and puzzling.)

More pics and a video after the jump. It gets a lot more blue going forward, so it’s on you to decide where best to view these.

Virginia Veidt Mystique cosplay

In the mid-90’s there was a Calvin Klein ad campaign that featured half-dressed models in what looked like a wood paneled basement, apparently auditioning for amatuer pron. It was seedy, creepy, and made the old people rage (the ads were pulled just a few weeks after they debuted)…but fuck if they weren’t effective,  leaving a big impression on my innocent little head. These pics, and some upcoming sets, represent kind of an homage to that ahead-of-its-time campaign. Not that the other stuff we’ve put up here wasn’t seedy or creepy, but it’s more intentional now.

The track there is off the exceptional Resident Evil: Afterlife soundtrack by tomandandy. Cinematography here still apparently being provided by the Water Street Butcher (anyone who gets that reference is a Champ in my book.)

I’m completely out of things to say about Mystique, beyond her Marvel Universe action figure being my favorite of the series (so far.) Very much hoping for a Hot Toys figure tied to the release of First Class, as it seems depressingly unlikely the Rebecca Romijn version will ever get that treatment.

Also, i think i’ve broken out the Immortel blu-ray like 3x since we shot this, as there really is nothing better than blue women. “I feel blue…for you.”

My jaw hit the floor after I went to the second group of photos. WOW!!!!! Virginia just amazes me with how beautiful she is. I think we just found the new Mystique for the next X-Men movie.

I love these shots, I love Virginia. I’ll be looking at these all day. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

DAMN those are hot! And she actually looks like Mystique! A beautiful girl willing to dress up as a comic book character and pose naked for photos… I can only dream for a girlfriend like that, hahaha. Keep it up!

I’m greatly enjoying all of the new cosplays (total nerd paradise here). As far as comic redheads go, I would love to see Virginia as Cyclone from DC’s JSA. She seems to be stepping out from the peripheral shadows and into some spotlights in quite a few of the story arcs as of late. Well, anyhoo, adios, and looking forward to future sets, whatever they may be :)

nice… crazy too. That’s a lot of blue… photoshop her hair blonde and you’ll have Smurfette, lol…

Keep up the good work… you’re work is noticeably getting better. Too bad there wasn’t a photo of her washed off like the Poison Ivy set…

What is up with the knee high Chucks? Those ugly ass shoes are in far too many of your pictorials. Are you guys so poor that they’re the only shoes you have and y’all take turns wearing them? They totally ruin every shot they’re in. Get on some public assistance or go down to Good Will and buy some decent shoes, ok?
Seriously. This is constructive criticism not meant to hurt, but help.

Gotta agree with dude, those knee-high Chuck Taylor All Stars look like shit! They’re probably the worst prop you have. Don’t know if you’re poor folks or not, but you sure are creative and showcase some damn hot babes! But BUY SOME NEW SHOES!
P.S. how do I get a Photo-Assist gig on your shoots? I be gettin me some a dat!

This girl is amazing. Why can’t I find a girl like this. Also those converse shoes absolutely kick ass! Keep up the good work!

I thought she was from Avatar the movie at first because I scrolled all the way down. Thumps me up.

What body paint did you use? Was it water based or oil based?? Hoping to do Mystique this year, but it’s a party and I don’t want all the body paint to come off before the end of the night.
