Loki costume by ihni Loki costume by ihni
Human kind - the race is weak
Nothing is their worth
I bet that within a week
I shall rule the Earth

Everyone will bow to me -
silent, frightened, awed
I’ll be what I've aimed to be -
leader, ruler, god

Righty-o, this costume right here is the reason why there haven't been many updates from me lately. I've been working on this since early January. I figured I'd give it a try, and then all of a sudden I had bought too much materials (for too much money) to be able to abandon it. So I had to finish it.

It's supposed to be Loki's costume from The Avengers. Which I went to see last night, with a friend who dressed up as Black Widow. We raised a few eyebrows, that's for sure. It was an awesome night. :) (It's also an awesome movie, go see it!)

Also, if anyone's interested in how it's made, I wrote that on tumblr. See links below.

I can't see the tumblr links. :(
Have you written anywhere else how you did it? I'm planning on doing a female Loki but that's still pretty close to his Avengers outfit.

I'm sorry, I changed my tumblr username and didn't update the links. They should work now, though! Let me know if they don't.

Hi! Quick question if I might- I saw your tutorial on the pants and it looks great, but I'm not sure about one part. How did you attach the cloth with the gold pieces to your pants? When I look, I can't see any seams or anything and it looks fantastic.

ihni Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2013
Thanks! And I folded the material really really close to the gold pieces (like, only a millimetre or so from them), and then I sewed the black fabric with the gold pieces on it onto the black pants ... with black thread. By hand. So when people see the pants, they don't see the seam ... they're probably busy watching the gold pieces. :)
Are you making your own costume?

I am! I'm starting from scratch so your tutorials are extremely helpful! Right now I'm working on the boots, which is going pretty well.

What materials did you use? o3o

ihni Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013
I have links in the descriptions that lead to my tumblr, where you can read about how I did it. It was a lot of different materials, and probably not even the right ones. I just used the ones I had avaliable, and that I thought could work. I've never done anything like this before.

Hm, I could advise you ... but really, when I joined tumblr, my life basically ended so ... I'm mostly lurking there, following a bunch of awesome people, but the tumblr tag is the one tag I NEVER CLOSE. So while it's an awesome place, it's also slightly addictive, so ... beware.

You're welcome. Last year's project of notable difficulty for me was making my Renaissance festival outfit. This year's is gonna be making Loki's scepter thing out of a staff that I have that is the perfect shape and length. It's even curved in the right direction.
