loki laufeyson -avengers cosplay test by sasukeharber loki laufeyson -avengers cosplay test by sasukeharber
finally its done! well sort off these are test pictures for my loki avengers cosplay,there are little things i want to do,mainly i need to add more velcro in places to hold pieces like the chest plate and the vambraces in better,
the wig im wearing is my backup loki wig ,my proper loki wig isnt here yet! since i only ordered it this morning lol,and the backup isnt styled much anyway i just put some pins in to hold the fringe back for these pics :) also i havnt got any make up on either XD

im very happy with this cosplay :) its been my first real big cosplay that ive made entirely from scratch as it shows on my w.i.ps ive done this all myself with the help of my mum to take photos every so often :) all the armor was hand sculpted by me with my craft knife all the armor on the legs the same,theres 55 pieces per leg,most were hand painted too since the spray paint would miss parts,the metal trim was put on by hand each piece is 3mmwide and 10mm long bend round the fabric then ironed in place,this took 2 days to do the entire jacket(theres got to be least 2000 pieces on the jacket alone) ,the tunic then took a day,the shoes didnt take as long,there is metal detailing on the coat,tunic,edges of the sleeves and shoes .

I love this.
It's also made me way more confident in attempting my own loki cosplay! You and I both have a similar face structure, kinda roundish square, not the long thin face loki is portrayed to have. Makes me feel better about attempting a cosplay. ;u; you look amazing as Loki.

thank you :) good luck on your cosplay :) to me face/body shape doesnt matter, if you love the character and you have the drive to make the costume,go for it,screw anyone else says diffrent ,thats how i think :), for starters im not even a guy,or the same height as loki im only around 5,1 or 5,2 ,ive found to help alter face shape a little ive used make up in my later images,there isnt any make up in this image,but i have in my later ones,and pics for cons i wear it so i look more like a guy XD

Agreed there. ;u;
I personally need to et over the feel of me feelin stupid which is such a stupid thought really. Last year I cosplayed as Karkat and it SUCKED but I had so much fun doing it.

I'm only a bit taller than you XD
I'll have to look into the makeup ;u; first I must make the costume, that's the hard part. I may start with the helmet / decorations and then make the tunic and pants, then jacket so if I don't finish in time for a con i will have some distinguishing loki stuff to wear :3

if you have fun cosplaying characters you like, then cosplay em, who cares what people say, if you love the character then go for it, i look nothing like tom hiddleston, still went for it :) , loki is a tough a costume,i found it such a challenge,but its really rewarding once its done :)

No one seems to have mentioned it on the forums yet. But Loki does seem to be a popular costume these days,, and no wonder why! XD (But between you and me, this is one of the best Loki's I've seen, you added so much detail and used quality fabric and it really shows ^^ )
Hehe! You have a true cosplayer heart! Hopefully it didn't get too much in the way of everything else going on.

This is way rad- the only problem is that you won't get any shopping done while you're there because of all the photos people will take!
Looking forward to the final pics (and the helmet!)

Well, rushing isn't always the best choice, so I think you'll be fine, but I hope the pieces come in so then you can continue, it'd be a pity if something happened to them or something :noes:. But yeah good luck on the scepter :) btw what are you gonna use as the tessaract? Will it glow? Or will it be plain or something? :P
