This costume has been over a year in the making and modifying. I first started it in August 2013, a few months before the premiere of Thor: The Dark World, but I had a ton of reference photos to work from thanks to Tom Hiddleston’s appearance at SDCC. Everything was patterned from scratch. I wore the first (now a bit painful to look at) version to the theatre in November, and since then I have almost constantly been updating it.
The bulk of the costume is real leather (lambskin), both black and brown; the brown is patterned, and was hand-embossed with a stamp I made myself to replicate the triquetra design. The green sections are a linen/rayon blend. There are also smatterings of gold chainmail mesh in the sleeves and coat-tails, and I clamped around 3,000 zipper stops by hand for the trim detailing.
This costume also marked my first attempt at armour crafting. The first set was made of of craft foam, and then I upgraded to worbla—also my first time using that, which was an adventure indeed! I’m quite proud of how it turned out, considering that I was making it up as I went most of the time.
The full outfit includes trousers and bootcovers (and sometimes chains), but alas, the dressform does not support such things. You’ll have to look at my full cosplay photos for that.
And of course, there is always more Loki in the works! I’m currently finishing off his prison outfit from the same film, and I’m planning on creating his Jotunheim costume from the first Thor movie sometime this year. Never a dull moment. Onward!_____________________

Cosplays currently include such things as Sherlock, Doctor Who, and more recently, Marvel and the Avengers and BBC Merlin. May also include photos of other cosplays taken at conventions, so if you see yourself, let us know so we can credit your awesomeness.
We're fond of cats, chocolate, Lord of the Rings Online, and spending too much time making BBC references in the company of people who haven't a clue what we're on about.
