Lady Loki WIP by SugarBunnyCosplay Lady Loki WIP by SugarBunnyCosplay
Words can not express how I feel about this cosplay. (The good, and the bad) XD

It’s been a long time coming, and a ton of work, but it’s almost complete. I’m going to be sewing the fur cape soon hopefully. There are a few details I need to fix, but otherwise this is almost 100%! FINALLY.

The scales were purchased from [link] . Each scale was hand painted and then distressed by myself. To give it the nice old, battle wear look. The scales were probably the easiest part of this costume. I had a lot of fun working on them, and I would really love to incorporate them into future cosplays.

The horns are made out of craft foam, wonderflex, insulation foam, and paper clay. Can I just say “WHATABITCH” the horn construction was. I literally debated tossing them away only a gazillion times.

(TO ANY LADY LOKI COSPLAYERS: if you could give me some advice on how you get your hors to stay in place I’d greatly appreciate it. I’m having trouble keeping them still.)

The dress is a bodice with the loin cloths sewn to it. The gold trim gave me the hardest time! I had to buy replacement gold at least 4 times because I kept messing up. The brown belt is a corset type piece I constructed to cover up the naked parts of my costume. LOL. Do not like the idea of flashing everyone in the vicinity.

The gold jewels/jems/brooches/decorations/etc were made out of wooden discs, and then paper clay was added to the top. I hand sculpted each and every one of those. *shutters* and then I painted and distressed each one. (CAN YOU SEE WHY IT HAS TAKEN ME SO BLOODY LONG???)

The boots are boot covers, since I will be traveling with this costume I didn’t want to buy thigh highs and have to figure out how to pack them with me when I travel.

For the most part, this has been the costume that has caused me to doubt myself and my skills as a cosplayer. I hope this weekend when I wear it to the Northern California Cosplay Gathering I feel accomplished enough to drag this with me to Wondercon. >A<

Thank you to everyone who encouraged me with this costume. I really appreciated all the support, especially when I felt like completing this costume was hopeless. <3

I love it!  How did you make the gold belt buckle things, if you don't mind me asking?

My Lady Loki horns have a black strap of elastic around it. I actually wear it under the wig that I use and just style it around the elastic band.

How did you pack your horns and get them to survive the trip? O.o I've been pondering on what to do with my horns if one day I manage to afford and out of state con... O.o

Courtney~ It looks amazing. Now that you mentioned that you are going to the NorCal gathering, I definitely want to shoot this.

This looks awesome, you should be super proud and definitely not doubting yourself, the horns look badass, and the time you put into the scales really shows :D

holy shit those are some horns!! i'd suggest getting some heavy duty fishing line and makeing an X or * type of cross web over the top of your head that links the front and back in a way that supports the head piece a little more than just haveing it wrap around you head. sort of like the inside of a hardhat? just a thought.
but you really look damn good! well done, take a bow and try not to tip over :)
