Senny here! Thought I'd post an update of what we've been up to lately....

We both attended ConnectiCon recently, which was awesome as always. Silhouette went as Loki all three days, no surprises there, and was immensely well-recieved. I accompanied her as my debut Tony Stark on Friday, and then as Merlin on Saturday and Sunday. Even met a couple of other Merlin cosplayers, surprisingly. Silhouette entered Loki into the craftsmanship contest, and received a judge's choice award for her cosplay!

Silhouette has once again begun the Loki patterning process, this time for his prison vest from The Dark World. As for me, I've been tweaking and improving Merlin. I've also begun what will probably be a long-term project - Sabriel from Garth Nix's Old Kingdom series (which is a seriously awesome read, go do it). That will involve much scale maille and embroidering of keys, so yeah, gonna be awhile with that one. But I'm really enthused about it.

Also in the works - well, planning stage at this point - is an Avatar: The Last Airbender cosplay group, Fire Nation style. Silhouette will be Zuko, with yours truly as Aang, and other friends as Sokka, Toph, and Suki. Should be amusing.

Joint cosplay and photography account between lifelong friends Sennedjem and Silhouette.

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.

Cheers!

Hi! Firstly, your cosplays are lovely, particularly your Sherlock ones--

Secondly, hope you don't mind me asking, but I wondering where you got your wig for Sherlock? I'm interested in doing a cosplay myself and your wig is the best one I've seen while trawling the internet.

Thank so much!

Thank you!

I get this question a lot, but unfortunately I don't have a great answer - I stumbled across it on ebay, but I haven't been able to find the same seller again. I do remember that it was almost a flapper type wig at first. I had to shift the part and sort of add/style the bangs myself. A lot of styling went into it, haha. So even if you don't find something that's perfect, chances are you'll be able to alter it.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but hopefully that will give you someplace to start. Searching something like 'short brown curly wig' on ebay usually comes up with a bunch of options you can then weed through. Good luck with the cosplay! And I'm happy to try and answer any other questions you might have. =]

I saw your test shots for Thor Loki and...oh, my god! YOU.REALLY.LOOK.LIKE.HIM. :faint: That hair, that facial expressions... Awesome. Truly awesome.
I really think you are the only person in this universe who makes such a perfect Loki. Of course, there are other Loki cosplayers too, but none of them is as awesome as you. I mean, your outfits look exactly in the film! I have never seen any other Loki cosplayer who got soooo close to what we see in the films. And you are also a great actress because you can really pull off the role so perfectly. Those facial expressions are so 100% Loki. It's just :faint: Waaaaaaaah, I could go on with my praise like forever...
