View Full Version : Becoming Lady Loki
03-18-2013, 12:43 AM
Hey guys! Alissa here. I am so excited to show everyone my fist cosplay. I went with Lady Loki but did something not many people do. I took his Avengers costume rather than the comic book and made it femme. I haven't seen this at any con I have been to which is why I chose to do it. Something fresh and new. So anyways. I went to Emerald City Comicon and just had a great time. My husband did most of the work on the costume so I'm going to give him all the credit here. We decided that though the costume was AMAZING for only 24 hours that we wanna completely redo it for next year as well as many cons to come. I hope you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for the step by step of the new and improved Lady Loki.
This was me on Sunday of ECCC. Would love to see what people think of it. I wanna know what I can do to improve my costume for the future. Any comments would be great. Just...Please be nice...I'm a sensitive Loki. :P

Okay really quick update before going to get ready for work.
We finally found the concept I wanted. I don't know the artist but if someone else does please let me know so I can give them credit.
This is what we will be going for. I will be adding pants because...I would be more comfortable doing that. The preliminary sketch was finished last night.
Now its just a matter of paying rent so we can focus on buying fabric. And me losing the weight so I will fit into the costume.

Wow it looks great. May I ask how you made the helmet? I have a friend who wants to dress up as Lady Loki, but I'm building her the helmet. We're both puzzled with how where to start with it.

My husband actually made it and he would probably be better at explaining it than me. We started with a wire frame and then made the shape with duct tape. Then Spackle and paint. I will see if he feels up to making another one so I can do and photo for the steps kind of thing.

It looks great!
I've seen various tutorials online on the horns. Some take a heart foam from like A.C. Moore and cut in half and mold that and use a baseball helmet as the base for it.
