And here we are, back to the darkside, and suprisingly in the DC universe. Today I’m going to go over a Blackfire body paint tutorial, but in my usual style, I’m going to give you a little background for her because sharing is caring, and these characters tend to have very interesting pasts.
So what’s so special about her?
Blackfire is actually the older sister of the more popularly cosplayed, Starfire, and Wildfire. Although she is Starfire’s older sister, they could no be more completely opposite. They are sibling rivalry personified. Blackfire is also a pretty good villain personality wise. She’s vain, sarcastic (doesn’t necissarily make her evil because of that), she’s cunning, and she’ll do basically anything to destroy her sister.
How can I be so sure?
The first time she met Starfire, she gave her a centauri moon diamond, and made Starfire feel that the other Teen Titans didn’t want her around anymore… and Blackfire was flirting with Robin. What? They might be superheros but they’re also teenagers. Communication isn’t a big thing apparently. Of course that all changed when the Centauri Police showed up. Remember when I said she was a bad person? Yeah, I kind of ment it. She hated her sister so much that she framed her for theft. Even though Blackfire says she’s stronger than Starfire, she was defeated by her younger sister’s starbolt, and arrested by the Centauri Police before she could retaliate.
First of all, if you’re asking that, we need to have a talk. But that’s not all. Blackfire also went back to their home planet of Tamaran and made herself Empress after breaking out of prison. Apparently that was not enough, so she also arranged a marriage for Starfire to Glgrdsklechhh. This dude is no prince charming either. He was actually a really gross alien, both inside and out considering he was willing to forcefully marry a girl. Ironically enough, it doesn’t seem like Blackfire is into killing other superheros since she didn’t show up for the Brotherhood of Evil meeting. I guess everyone has to have some redeeming qualities.
So what do you think of Blackfire? Is she redeemable or is she a lost cause? Would you recreate this Blackfire Body Paint Tutorial? Let me know down in the comments!
