How to Make a Na'vi Neytiri Costume (Avatar)

Make the Perfect Neytiri Costume
Avatar is one of the most beautiful, visually stunning films of all time with some amazing character designs and CGI. The look of the na'vi is unique and instantly recognizable even by those who haven't see the movie, which makes it a great costume choice for Halloween and parties. Of course the gorgeous princess of the na'vi Omaticaya clan, Neytiri te Tskaha Mo'at'ite is the perfect character to dress up as for the ladies, so lets look at how to put the costume together!

The Outfit and Hair

No need to dunk yourself in blue bodypaint to get the na'vi look, just pick up this gorgeous blue body suit from Secret Wishes, which comes with the attached tail, apron, and a single gauntlet. Its sleek and figure hugging, making for a very sexy and elegant look and feel without baring any skin! Note that if you are shopping from the UK or EU, you can find this costume here.

There are also a number of accessories you can add to finish off the look. Check out for example these cute fangs, or this great looking replica of Neytiri's knife from the movie, complete with sheath, which is a fantastic addition for costume lovers who like big attention to detail.

Next up you'll want the perfect hair. Not everyone has lovely thick black hair they can braid, so here's a wig you can use to get the same look. It comes with matching ears too! If you do have long black hair, you can recreate the movie look without the wig by braiding it into lots of long, beautiful braids.

The Makeup

Next up you'll need to make your face match the awesome costume. A light blue face paint makes a great base, and there are a number of licensed Avatar face paint color pallets you can buy to paint on the detail: this one is my favorite! If you are having trouble getting the pattern right, you can try using this na'vi face stencils as a guide to help you. Check out the sweet video tutorial below for a guide to doing your makeup with style.
