loki laufeyson cosplay- avengers - complete by sasukeharber loki laufeyson cosplay- avengers - complete by sasukeharber
loki is all nice and finished now :) , last part was editing the hairline to be more realistic , very happy with this costume ,whole costume made by me, i had help cutting and styling the wig from my mum,and my dad helped with the circuit inside the scepter to allow it to glow blue .

cosplay costs around £300+
time taken to make 2 1/2 - 3 months
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 3mm wide and 10mm long and had to be bent 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 .

for height comparison -im about 150cm, i think that is equal to about 5ft 1

materials used
black plain/textured faux leather
brown faux leather
dark gold silk
black /green polycotton
black cotton
foamboard

Looks god! ;D How much did this cost you, I'm thinking of making one, but I have a very small budget.

the cost for this costume went up to least 400-500 pounds, it also went up more with upgrades :(, but im sure it can be done on a budget, I did over spend on a few things

im sure you can make It cheaper, I did over buy, and maybe could have gotten away with cheaper materials at some bits, I just didn't XD
