You wanna hear something rather funny?
The page that I was on before navigating to the one with my messages on it was yours.

I saw your Kid!Loki cosplay on Tumblr, actually, and my rp group and I were all freaking out about how quality it is xD

Sounds like The Twilight Zone, huh?

Either way, thanks so much!
I've got Loki from Trials of Loki in the works -- and I'm actually debating on doing a JiM version, too.

You read my mind on what I want to dress up next year!

Oh my!---- You look... WONDERFUL!!!
The fur- the helmet- even down to the black nail polish; PERFECTION. ;]

Thank you!
I got the fur for $60/yard, so it was not cheap, but it was totally worth it. I recommend using faux fox fur~

It looks worth it-- but-- $60 a yard?? OUCH.
That's going to hurt-- Probably have to find another solution.


If I may, how exactly did you make that gorgeous helmet?
It's just so perfect!

xPermaFrost Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2011
Oh, well, I only bought about a third of a yard -- being that the fabric was 58" wide. c: It feels real, though, and the color is just amazing, because it has dark roots, bright shafts, and reddish tips. I would say that you would be better off saving up for a while and buying nice quality fur, because fur is something that is REALLY easy to tell that its fake if it's not really good quality. I recommend going to the Home-Decor section of your local fabric store and checking that out. Fabric is something that you really get what you pay for, and in this, I'm really glad to have spent so much. In fact, I even had to buy another yard of the stuff in solid white for a Balder cosplay that I'm making for a friend, and, after having bought the craft fur that they sell at Joann Fabrics and putting one next to the other, it looks INFINITELY better. Especially since the fur is such a huge part of either cosplay (Balder or Loki, I mean).

Though, with regard to the helmet, that is a tale that will bring the lulz. I went to a local costume shop looking for a hat base upon which I could mold some wonderflex plastic, and ended up finding this viking helmet (yes, my Loki helm is made from a shitty costume-store viking helmet). Totally generic dome with little bolt details around the rim, and with a big yak horn on either side. Turns out that, under closer inspection, I could slide the horns out and put them in inside out. The little ellipse that you see on the front of the helmet is the back of one horn that I had trimmed and painted gold. The back of the helm has the same ellipse, and I cut a little hole into it to allow for the ponytail, the likes of which is an entire shoulder-length black, $30, Halloween wig, totally cheap, but rather nice fiber.

The horns are also a silly story, for I actually made them from a plastifoam heart that I had cut in half. Having fitted the edges to the curve of the helm, I then hot-glued them on and painted over the glue.

All of the paint is acrylic, not spraypaint -- because spraypaint melts foam. Also, I recommend wearing a very thin headband or cap underneath it, because you will sweat like no tomorrow. I remember I could write "Loki is a grumpy boy" in the condensation on the inside of it, and you could read it clear as day.

The helm was the biggest chore in constructing this cosplay, aside from dying the gloves and the loincloth and actually wearing the damn thing. Your legs get FREEZING and your shoulders get LAVA-HOT.
That fur does NOT breathe.

Thank you- THANK YOU!
All this information is great!

I'll probably have to save up for the fur- because as you said, it really does pay off in the end. You can't go wrong with faux fur.

Ah! The helmet idea is great! I would have never though of such a thing- also the horns! x] They really do look like a heart when connected.


I've had A LOT of experience wearing different costumes that either restrict my movement, breathing or comfort. The costume I am doing right now is based on an up coming game, called Journey. The outfit of the wanderer looks simple enough- but my sight is limited, my breathing is limited, and I cannot use my arms at all.
So- wearing fur would be the least of my problems. ^^


Again, I want to give you a big THANK YOU! You have no idea how many times I ask help from people and never get an answer- or if I do, it's usually a sentence long; illiterate lame explanations that don't help in the end.

THANK YOU~! ;D ♥ ♥ ♥

Thank you so much!
The horns were my key place of concern, really, as far as being self-conscious about how the cosplay turned out, but I've gotten a hugely positive response from almost everyone who's commented!

Makes me feel a lot better xD;
