How to look like an Avatar

Below it has Movie Quality Special Effects MakeUp and Prosthesis for Avatar.

Quick Link Guide:

Prepackaged Avatar MakeUp Kits | Avatar Masks and Special Effects Prosthetics

This years hot costume for parties and Halloween events is sure to be Avatar inspired. Now considering the Na'Vi are ten foot tall and mostly naked plus Jake Sully as a Marine requires a wheelchair, the main component of a successful costume will be detailed make up effects to enhance the Na'Vi in you.

So after tearing the weeds off the side of your garage and braiding them into a leotard to cover your naughty bits break out the body paint and make-up, dedicate a half hour to make-up and try not to get to wet while your out partying! Or if your not of age, while your out trick or treating.

Required Supplies

  • Palmers Cocoa Butter

  • E.l.f Eyeshadow Primer

  • 120 Pro Pallet

  • e.l.f blush brush

  • e.l.f contour brush

  • e.l.f angled foundation brush w7 gel eyeliner

  • glam crystals gel eyeliner

As an alternative, for Kids costumes at a much lower price point than movie/fashion quality make-up one could use the officially licensed Avatar Movie Make Up Kit

What makes a Na'Vi Avatar

There are lots of tutorials on the web already on how to best achieve the Na'Vi look, also tutorials on Cats make-up can be used as a starting point.

To be very general, in order to pull off the Na'Vi look one needs to:

  1. Be Naked
  2. Blue
  3. Glow in the Dark/Luminescent markings
  4. Cat eyes
  5. Cat like nose
  6. Long hair

Watch the included videos and we will follow along with usable products and methods throughout this article.

Avatar Prostethic Kits

Although, the Avatar NaVi look can be attained via make up alone, using a basic prostheti ckit can ease your preparation time and add believable additions such as the navi ears. Prosthesis are available for male and female NAvi and humans via this Hollywood SFX level seller supply at eBay.

      Bill your website is already highlighted on the Avatar masks article that is connected to this series and your ebay offerings are highly promoted.

      So no need to spam this article which is unrelated.


      Check out the Avatar prosthetics at XXXXXX they are fantastic. They have a face/nose prosthetic, ears, and a tail with hair that is punched into it and it looks so real! They also have make-up kits to go with them. Check it out:

      Just saw Avatar today. Definitely enjoyed it. Are there kites out there to look like the "air transportation" creatures? That would be a nice touch for a costume.
