Another of the goodies you'll find on the First Class home video package is a behind-the-scenes look at the incredible make-up process that Jennifer Lawrence underwent in order to become the blue-skinned Mystique. This is the kind of movie-magic stuff that I geek out over. I'm constantly amazed at the work done by make up artists like the ones shown in this clip, not to mention the patience of actors who have to endure the process for hours upon hours. Although I can't show the clip here, you can watch it at io9
Finally, we have the clip below, which shows some of the work that went into making those cool blue and yellow costumes. For me, the suits were one of the many highlights of First Class because they referred back to the classic X-Men comic book threads, while at the same time appeared to be functional and modern (by 1960s standards, anyway). One of the designers explains that they looked to NASA and other space-age sources from the '60s for inspiration and even used actual Kevlar in the construction. How cool is that?
