Merlin: A Dragon's Treasure by MirroredSilhouettes
Merlin: A Dragon's Treasure
Finally got to take some photos with the new purple shirt, as well as a lovely box given to me by a friend. It seemed a good prop for Merlin.

Loki Costume Details (Thor: The Dark World) by MirroredSilhouettes
Loki Costume Details (Thor: The Dark World)

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!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Sennedjem and I both have cosplay pages on Facebook! 

Sennedjem: Myrddin Emrys Costuming

Silhouette: Silhouette Costuming and Cosplay

So, if any of you are inclined, do take a peek, and likes are always appreciated! In other news, we're headed to Rhode Island Comic Con come the start of November. Senny is currently working on a lovely robed Tolkien-style Elf costume, and I have been doing bits and pieces of both Dark World and Prison Loki.

Oh, and we're both hooked (pun intended) on Once Upon A Time now. Future cosplays: Rumplestiltskin by Silhouette, and Captain Hook (told you pun intended!) by Senny!

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!

Oh, God, I know it's embarassing that I'm literally spamming your page with compliments and now lookin' at that already impressive pile I think that most people'll think I'm some stupid weirdo, but oh, damn, I.CANNOT.JUST.SHUT.UP.
I'm just back from your tumblr and...and...damn! Admit it! You're a female clone of Mr Hiddleston! You LOOK like him on those Loki-from-the-first-Thor-flick pics. :wow: My reaction was something like this: :faint: My cousin almost got a heart attack and a friend of ours thought we were kidding her. She said: This IS Loki, not just a girl cosplaying him. It took almost five minutes to convince her that you are not Mr Hiddleston, although on some shots the resemblance is CRAZY.
Yes, yes, I promise, I'll shut up now. NO MORE COMMENTS FROM ME. Your page's already full of 'em...

I'm not embarrassed--just overwhelmed, like, whoa, I just want to keep thanking you over and over again, haha. :P 

I loooove the young Loki look. I think it suits me a bit better because, yeah, I'm younger, and not as gaunt as Tom can look, haha. Now I just have to get working on that Jotunheim outfit... xD

Good to know that my endless pile of comments doesn't annoy you. I was really afraid you'd start to think I'm a weirdo or a stalker or any other type of deranged folk. :XD:
Btw, just seen your young!Loki with that wig. It's absolutely :iconilavplz:
Keep up the great work. You're fantastic. :thumbsup:

My cousin and I need to tell you this: your Loki looks fucking IMPRESSIVE in videos! That glare! Whoa...well...I really hope there'll be some decent video footage of your Loki because it's just :faint:
Oh, and greetings to your friend who does this awesome Lady Thor. :thumbsup: You two make an awesome team! :nod:

You just keep piling me with compliments; aren't you worried about my head getting too big to get through the door? xD 

No, but seriously, thank you! I'm going to try to get some video at some point, but it involves more coordination and someone who can actually take it, so yeah. But I do want it to happen. :D 

I'll pass that on to Thor! :hug:
