X-Men Crafts, Costumes and More
|Share the love...||
|X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens in the US on May 1st, but the X-Men have been captivating audiences in comic books, cartoon television series, video games, and movies since 1963. Though they didn’t start out that way, the X-Men are now the most racially and ethnically diverse main group in the Marvel Universe! Couple that with their earthly origins and it’s easy to see why these relatable and accessible heroes are so popular!|
Super heroes are always a solid costume idea and so many of the X-Men characters could be easily adapted into simple but identifiable costumes. However, leave it to Craftsters to conquer what I’d consider the most challenging character to pull off: Mystique! I mean, really, she’s completely blue and naked! Believe it or not, Mystique is actually the most posted X-Men costume on Craftster. Although I’ve only shown two here, there is at least one more you should definitely check out.
Since most Craftsters are ladies, there aren’t very many Wolverine Costumes, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love Logan! jilltheimpossible took a small boy’s shirt and made it much for feminine and flattering. Miss_Vicki and meepum made Wolverine much more snuggly (snugglier?) with their plush versions.
By far, my favorite X-Men craft on Craftster is the personalized take on the comic cover depicting Jean Grey and Scott Summers’ (Cyclops) wedding. bunsenhoneydew13‘s fiancee’s made it for a friend’s wedding. What an awesome gift! I’m definitely a sucker for the Rogue/Gambit crafts, too!
