Colossus from Deadpool

Colossus (played by Stefan Kapicic) is one of two or three mutants that join Deadpool in his movies. According to the movies, the others are busy (or avoiding Wade). If you ask Deadpool, though, the studio just couldn’t afford to license more from Fox. Ouch. Either way Colossus is a somewhat reluctant ally for the merc with a mouth and one Deadpool sorely needs.

You don’t need the X-gene to copy Colossus’ look thankfully. To copy his metal-coated skin you can either use a silver bodysuit and black marker for the body then use silver and black body paint for your face and hands. Or, if you prefer the paint over the bodysuit, you can use just the paint. You’ll need a few paintbrushes to pull off the finer detail, though.

Recreating Colossus’ clothing is a little bit easier. A black zip-up bike vest and red paint copies the most detailed part of his look while black pants, a black tactical belt, and black boots finish off the look.

Black Tom Cassidy from Deadpool 2

Black Tom Cassidy (played by Jack Kesy) was rumored to be the main villain for Deadpool 2. Budget cuts downsized his role but Kesy still made a big impact on audiences with the limited screen time he had. In the wider Marvel universe Black Tom Cassidy is a sadistic and villainous man who uses his mutations of incredible strength and pyromancy to cause mayhem and instill fear.

Because Cassidy’s time on the big screen was fairly limited in Deadpool 2 he only had one outfit that cosplayers can work with. The clothing consists of a yellow jump suit, grey tank top, and back boots. This is the standard-issue uniform in the mutant prison where Deadpool meets Cassidy. To finish off the look you will also need a wig with black braids, fake tattoos, and a goatee. The final piece of this costume is a mutation suppressant collar. Unfortunately there aren’t any available on Etsy or Amazon. Making your own would be an impressive build, however!

Quicksilver

In X-Men: Days of Future Past, speed is the name of the game for Quicksilver (Evan Peters). With the ability to move faster than sound, he’s spent a good part of his teen years as a petty thief. That is until he’s called to a greater cause – one to help the X-Men.

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.

Wolverine

Wolverine is everyone’s favorite Canadian comic book hero, usually portrayed by Hugh Jackman when he’s hugely jacked. He’s the grumpy member of the X-Men, due to the fact that he doesn’t know much more about his past than that his real name is Logan. You’ll have to supply your own adamantium skeleton on this one.
