Hey True Believers!
Today I have a Psylocke inspired look for you! Psylocke, aka Betsy Braddock, is a member of the X-Men (currently X-Force) who is a mutant that has the powers of telepathy and telekenisis. I based this look off of her armored costume from the late 80s before she got sucked into the Siege Perilous, kidnapped by The Hand, and her mind forced into the body of the Japanese assassin known as Kwannon. (Prior to all of that, Betsy was a caucasian woman from England).
I used a nail dotting kit to get the kinetic energy dots from her psychic knife which is a new technique for me that I’m still playing with. I chose to make the eyebrows and the eyeliner in glitter to represent her armor. This was taking me so long, that I decided to only give one eye the psychic knife which is kind of funny because Betsy usually only uses one hand for that, so it worked out. This is my favorite Psylocke costume, so of course I chose to tackle this one first.
This also gave me the opportunity to use the Violet Noir lashes Faux Lash was kind enough to send me! A small review of the lashes will be in the bottom of this post.
