Mystique from X-Men

Misunderstood and bullied since childhood, blue-skinned shapeshifter Mystique (played onscreen by Jennifer Lawrence and Rebecca Romijn) truly understands anti-mutant oppression. Her early experiences of mistreatment shaped her stance in the fight for mutant equality — or even dominance, as her leader, Magneto, gravitates towards.

Mystique is easily remembered for her onscreen appearances wearing only the strategically-placed blue scales she was born with (requiring Rebecca Romijn to spend hours in the makeup room), but comic book portrayals have been slightly more favorable to cosplayers attending family-friendly venues. You could buy the blue jumpsuit and stop there, but I’ve included some additional garments which draw inspiration from my personal favorite Mystique look from the retro X-Men arcade game.

Raven Darkhölme aka Mystique

Before she was Mystique she was Raven Darkhölme (Jennifer Lawrence). A girl with a hidden past and shape-shifting abilities, she eventually evolves into a super-villain. She has such a traumatic impact on the future of mutants, that Professor Xavier and the rest of the X-Men must go back to the past to try to change her destructive actions.

Rosalyn Rosenfeld

In American Hustle, crazy troublemaker Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) has a love of self-help books, cigarettes, and champagne. Ditzy Rosalyn couldn’t keep a secret if her life depended on it, but boy does she look good while doing housework.

Katniss Everdeen

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is a 16-year-old girl who volunteers in place of her younger sister for the Hunger Games. She hails from District 12, a poor, desolate coal-mining region that has sharpened her hunting and survival skills.

Tiffany Maxwell

In Silver Linings Playbook, Tiffany Maxwell (Jennifer Lawrence) is a recent widow going through a meltdown when she meets Pat Jr. You might say that her wardrobe is bipolar — part Hot Topic, part Foot Locker.
