Neytiri from Avatar



See more images of Neytiri

When I first saw James Cameron's Avatar I was in awe, everything was so beautiful it captivated me in so many indescribable ways. I knew, the instant I saw Neytiri, she was going to be my next cosplay project. I was the first to do it, so i had few resources on how to create this character. I also had no special FX experience, I learned everything on YouTube regarding prosthetic making and makeup applying.

The entire costume took two months to make and cost $300.00

I made all the props, jewelry, latex prosthetics, and even mapped the stripes and dots as accurately to the movie as possible. All the materials used for the jewelry and props were organic, wood, shells, real feathers, glass beads, sinew, leather, all made by hand with utmost care. I was aided by a friend of mine, who I taught as best as I could to do the body painting, which took about 4 hours to do.

The makeup used was oil based clown makeup from Mehron studios, good stuff, it was completely waterproof and it lasted me a long time.

I live in Puerto Rico, and it was a gift to be here because we have such lush rain forests so it was perfect for this project. The shoot was 6 hours in the forest, climbing trees and rocks, it was an amazing experience, I was a real Na'vi in Pandora for a day.
