i dont own loki or anything to do with him or marvel,just a fan
Btw I read the comments you answer over and over again, it's awesome that you take the time to answer questions. It's very helpful.
oh well thank you I do try even if I am a little late replying sometimes D:
We bought LOTS of plain faux leather and we were planning to use that for the whole costume,in and out, then we found out half of it is a different type of leather. I wish we could afford it though because for the Loki fan it will be kinda obvious we didn't use two types of faux leather.
Well at least you do reply, that's what counts. I understand people are too busy to always give answers but when they do it's awesome!
well you can only work up to what your budget is , a lot of people don't bother with using the diff fabric
I havnt noticed many at cons that do, I wasn't till I saw a few hd pics and thought arrrggh! dam!
I try to reply to people at least within 2 days but a lot of the time I fail D:
After a long research I have seen only you and two other cosplayers (a guy and a girl) who used different fabrics. However their choice was SPOT ON and I envy them so very hard.
I read in your other W.I.P. pics that you used two colours of rectangles, golden and black. Where are the black ones, on his ribs/sides?
Also.. (and sorry to bother you all the time but you're the only expert I know ) could you give me a hint as to how big (in mm) the rectangles should be and how many? I read that you used 30 packs of them but I still don't know how many approximately you needed as it seems every seller packs them in different numbers.
Here's a couple of shops I found, what do you think?
They have different sizes so I don't know what to choose. >__<
howdy, yeah some people have got the correct leather, but as far as I know it has to be hand made, too much hassle for me.
the rectangles I bought in size 3mm x 10 mm , as for how many I cant give an exact amount I just know I ended up buying like 45 bags of them, about 5 of them in the black the rest in gold, but I have a ton left over.
those links seem ok , ive also found this site - www.novarhinestone.com/nailhea…
try if you can and get a matt gold , as it looks more natural than a bright shiny gold.
Still, the results look fantastic! Thanks
