Exclusive behind-the-scenes video from X-Men: First Class featuring Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique.

(Source: Io9.com) Watch as the lovely Jennifer Lawrence is transformed into the scaly blue mutant Mystique, in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from X-Men: First Class.

In this sneak peek from the special features included inside the movie’s DVD and Blu-ray release, you can watch a team of 6 make-up artists airbrush on the scaly blue sheath that is Mystique’s very thin costume. We have a hard time imagining standing still for seven hours, only to work a full day on set directly afterwards. Still, we’d argue it was worth it, Raven’s the young blue hide in this 1960s mutant period piece was spectacular.

I’m impressed! If I were her, I would be so exhausted and after all these preparations I wouldn’t have a mind to act. She’s really great!
