Here’s the progress after about 24 hours on the fem!Thor costume I’m making for fibonnacisgoldensnare, for Anime Boston. It’s getting there!
Hello. Are you ready for the story? This is the story of Sir Boast-a-lot. Sir Boast-a-lot was the bravest and cleverest knight of the round table but soon the other knights began to grow tired of his stories about how brave he was and how many dragons he’d slain. And soon they began to wonder: “Are Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories even true?” Oh no… So, one of the knights went to King Arthur and said: “I don’t believe Sir Boast-a-lot’s stories, he’s just a big old liar who makes things up to make himself look good.” And then even the King began to wonder… But that wasn’t the end of Sir Boast-a-lot’s problems. No. That wasn’t the final problem. The End.
When Kurse is breaking out all of the other prisoners to wreak havoc during the attack on Asgard, he comes and he sizes up Loki. And even Kurse realizes, ‘I’m not gonna let this guy out. This guy’s trouble’. And as Kurse starts to walk away, Loki shows that he is trouble.
A Brother’s Journey: Thor & Loki Commentary
Anime Boston Lineup!
These are the cosplays of mine that you’ll see in less than two weeks (eek)! Mary Morstan from Sherlock will definitely be on Friday. Rose Tyler and Loki are still interchangeable for Saturday and Sunday depending on the scheduling of my Thor.
I promise I’m friendly (even as Loki!), so say hi if you see me! :D
Hey, I was wondering, how did you make that amazing texture (the kind of damaged look) on your loki vambraces? I'm going to need to create a similar effect on the armor parts for frigga.
Going to make this a public reply in case anyone else is curious. :)
I covered the plain foam and worbla with gesso just to seal them and give me a better surface to work on. Then I spray painted everything the bright gold colour that you can see. But clearly it’s very bright and doesn’t have that lovely weathered look. So! I mixed up a dark brown, slightly watered-down acrylic paint and painted over the gold (it’s scary at first, but trust me! :P) I waited until that was dry or nearly dry, then took damp paper towels and cotton balls and rubbed the acrylic away in places so that the gold showed through again. In general, raised areas will have the gold highlights and places that are lower or in cracks or corners tend to “collect dirt” more. But the aesthetic is really up to you!
Hope that helps!
Major Loki-tunic taking-apart-and-stabilising, go!
hopefully I will not regret this
