    She looks beautiful. Her look was the most memorable of the trailer.

    Do we know anything about Blink's involvement? Is she involved in the time-travel element alongside Shadowcat?

    And she's definitely pink! It's a light shade of it, but the shot of her that will probably be throwing one of her crystal teleportation dagger you can definitely tell.

    She looks REALLY good, better than I expected. Oh and in the shot of her with her hand out, she definitely has pink skin. Now, give her something cool to do Singer.

    It'll look even better when they color correct/time everything.

    They're not the "all green, no whites or pupils" look that she has in the comics, but it's the right shade of green, and still looks cool, so I'm fine with it.

    To be fair, I'm not sure that you even could do the 100% translation from the comics and not have it look goofy. This is a good compromise.

    Oh, I understand, trust me, I'm one of the first to defend stylistic choices in various superhero movies if it makes sense in context, but they do make full eye contacts, Sabretooth in X1 had 'em, but almost all people who have worn them say they are extremely uncomfortable to wear and visibility is really low, so if they're gonna make Blink real action-y like everyone expects, it will be hard to do if Fan Bingbing can't see to do it, so I'm fine with just the iris' being that bright green. And like I said, they still stand out and look cool, so the full eye thing didn't need to be done.

    I liked what they did to her look and I'm happy that they didn't give her the traditional green Exiles costume.

    She and Bishop are easily the two most interesting looking new characters.

    Signs near eyes are on different side, they changed it like Marvel did with Malekith face in The Dark World.

    Blink was the stand out new character in the trailer, to me at least. Bishop second and Sunspot third. Not digging Warpath...not yet anyways, I hope that changes...the appearance reminded me a little too much of Nightwolf from Mortal Kombat Annihilation...shudders.

    the whole vibe from the new characters seemed cheap to me, sadly.

    Bishop looks fine, (closest to comics), but the rest look from a B-list movie. or something from a Comic Con.

    I expected more level, on such an important and expensive movie, and with Singer involved.

    easy explanation:

    - Costumes look pretty cheap
    - Blink's make up is not on the same level as Nightcrawler and Mystique from Original trilogy.
    - Cosplay vibe from them, in general.

    I will wait till I see the costumes in full and different angles. But so far Bishop and Blink are the two I am most interested in seeing from the new mutants.

    I agree with this for the most part, but Angamb does bring up some good points.

    But for the moment, I'll say, Warpath looks the most cosplay-ey, Blink and Bishop look pretty good, and Sunspot is okay bordering meh...

    Hmmm I have no problem with how the new 4 characters look like whatsoever. The only thing I would change is I would remove Bishop's red scarf and I would make Sunspot's costume all black and remove the yellow details.

    I think Blink looks fine. I don't want see her in acid pink color make up.
    We didn't see her outfit yet. So it looks like green leather for me.

    She's clearly pink, it just seems to be a somewhat different shade of pink.
