cos(WED): Mystique by Futago Cosplay


This week's Cosplay Wednesday features Futago Cosplay, who are actually a pair of twins from western CO; this cosplay of Mystique is done by one of the twins! Mystique is quite a character in the X-Men universe.  As a shapeshifter, her life and personality is steeped in deception. Impersonating the lives and image of many people constantly made it hard for her to really have an identity to call her own, leading to a bitter and angry life.  Cosplaying Mystique's emotions (or lack thereof) must be hard! But Futago Cosplay nailed it!
