Blind Mag from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Sarah Brightman is best known for her music but she’s also taken a turn as an actress, most notably as Blind Mag in “Repo! The Genetic Opera”. An opera singer under a lifelong contract for the use of her bionic eyes.

The film has a very specific aesthetic and Mag’s costume is an excellent example of it. Large fake lashes, black lipstick, face paint, and white body paint copy her ghostly coloring while black thigh high boots, black fishnets, a black choker, and black wig make up the details of her look.

A little DIY is needed for the main portion of Mag’s outfit. Red and black feathers can be glued around the top and bottom of a black corset using Fabric Fusion glue. And though she doesn’t technically wear one in the film, a short black athletic skirt worn underneath the bottom feathers gives you more space to attach the feathers too and offers more coverage. Finally, a gauzy black shawl mimics the last of her costume.

Shiloh from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Shiloh Wallace (played by Alexa Vega) is the 17, almost 18-year-old daughter of Nathan Wallace in Repo! The Genetic Opera. Her father tells her she has a rare blood condition and, for this reason, she has been shut away most of her life. But after 18 years of confinement, she is hitting her rebellious streak and wants to be set free. She’s sly enough to sneak out of the house but naive about the world as she discovers what lays beyond the gates of her home. Like most of the world, she dresses in a Goth fashion. Her cameo necklace is unique, however, in that it represents her mother who died when Shiloh was born. She wears the cameo in some form throughout all her outfits, usually as a choker.

Graverobber from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Graverobber from Repo! The Genetic Opera

Graverobber (Terrance Zdunich) is the resident Zydrate peddler and smirking narrator of Repo! The Genetic Opera. The world he lives in is a rough one, so the V in the neck of his overshirt will have to be cut a little lower. And he wears a thin blue scarf around his neck made from the torn hem of his undershirt. He also has pale skin and long hair streaked with a few different colors. He usually has Zydrate on him, but those little blue vials are awfully hard to come by.
