That piece got set aside with the horns and I moved on to the next bits: Everywhere that I found online suggests using the pink type of foam, but all I could find at my local hardware store was blue. It was tempting to helnet make some basic horns and go from there, but the way the horns curve is pretty distinctive and I wanted to replicate it as much as possible. Hopefully that makes some sense. I painted all of the armor pieces with several layers of gesso on top of the wood glue and went about sanding the gesso down — but alas, smooth armor was not meant to be.
I had a leather coat hanging in the closet that papegcraft managed to get a hole in it heomet few years back, so the decision was made that this coat would get cut up and become all of the leather pieces for the costume. When I got home I spent a good deal of time lokii in the floor watching The X-Files and practicing carving on a spare piece of foam to get the hang of it.
The shoulder piece was tricky. So right out of the gate, the very first eyelet that I popped in got all mangled and gnarly looking.
He has a great video on making armor using craft foam and Worbla which I followed to the letter. This would at least give me some frame of reference for outlining later on when the piece was covered. To compensate, I pulled out the wood filler I had previously purchased and started applying coats. So, my daughter Lily decided earlier this year that she wanted to be Loki for Halloween. The whole thing was transferred over to craft foam, cut out, and glued together.
Honestly even the word amateur seems a bit too kind as this was my first real go at doing anything like this using these materials.

Anywho… the process of covering was largely the same for most of the pieces of armor. So, after a ton more shaping, sanding, cutting, etc.
I think the end result looks cool, but to be honest it is not anywhere near what the film version has it looking like. I used a combination of clay sculpting tools and the tools from an old iPhone repair kit to get into the creases and edges to make the details as sharp as I could manage.
Then I cut loads of little pieces of Worbla, heated them up and formed them together like clay and attached them as closely as I could manage over my guidelines.
So, after all the foam pieces were covered, detailed, and formed, everything was coated in about 5 layers of wood glue. We knew from the outset that this was a pretty big job what with all the armor and sewing and everything, so we set about doing our homework. After priming, several coats of paint were sprayed.
Note for next time — start making the costume earlier.
You see, depending on whose cosplay you look at, or which screencap you see online of the actual armor piece, they all seem to be slightly different. I would just have to do my best to make the two bracers match. Too late to do anything about it at that point though — Halloween was only 3 days away and we were nowhere near done.

Shoulda got papercract the camera. It is also a really odd shape. I was lucky enough that one of the comic book shops in the area carries it — so I popped over and picked up a large sheet. To do this, I screwed some drywall anchors into the base of the horns and drilled a couple of holes in the headpiece and simply screwed the horns in.
In the end, my wife wound up making the majority of the leather and cloth bits while my main focus was on the armor and helmet. To begin with, it is super detailed.
Loki has a lot of different pieces of armor depending on what you are using as source material. After priming and painting, it dawned on me that I had no clue how to attach the bracers to her.
I am not sure if there is any difference between the two colors — but the blue foam worked just fine. We wound up attaching the armor pieces to the costume with velcro and superglue and finished the whole thing about 30 minutes loli we were supposed to meet friends for trick-or-treating.
Where we live it gets pretty cold on Halloween, so the inside of the he,met was lined with green fleece and cotton. Let me tell you something — if you have any scratches or imperfections, shiny paint sucks. To save time, we went The Avengers route honestly just because it seemed to have less pieces than most of the others.

Went back to the ppercraft. Luckily, everything worked out. Once I had one done, I just flipped the template over on another piece of foam, transferred, and made a mirror copy. As I mentioned earlier, most of the rest of the costume was done by my wife.
