Cosplay Conspiracy

I first got into costuming years ago with an interest in period garb. It has only been in the past few years that I've actually taken to, and been able to afford, cosplaying on a regular basis.
Other than that, I have two children cats: Kitty Babe and Custard, who are both spoiled brats- but I love them to death anyway. I love chocolate, herbals teas, and fruit. I do not love phone calls or small talk, but I'll talk your ear off when you hit on something I care about.
And if you're in Arizona, we should do photos some time!

Today’s progress.

Spent my day off watching “Justice League” and “Psych” and working twelve hours on Loki’s tunic. Lots of pattern making and stitch removing went on.
I just need to add an invisible zipper, and attach to lower section, then I can move on to that breastplate.
So super excited about progress!

What would you call these? They’re clearly not bracers, and they can’t be gauntlets as they do not protect the fingers. Hmmmmm…. I’ve got nothing.

Well, whatever they’re called, I’m proud of how they turned out.

These little tidbits of armor are made from activ-clay, and were really just an experiment to see how well they stuff worked in general. There is a steel mesh inside of them for support; details were made with a knife and a Philips head screwdriver. Painted with gold acrylic and weathered with very watered-down metallic black acrylic.

I think I’ll keep them.

It doesn’t matter how many times I see it, every time I watch the opening/back story of Thor 2 Loki 3, and King Bor decides to bury the Aether rather than destroy it, I can’t help but ask, “How stupid are you? Did you learn nothing from Elrond and Isildur? Didn’t the War of the Ring teach us to destroy potentially evil things, and not to hide them away?”

And then I calm down and remember that, just because the both whole history of Middle Earth and the Marvel Thor Loki Universe are heavily steeped in Norse Myth, does not mean they actually crossover.

I like to unnecessarily over-complicate my life. It’s a hobby.

In pursuit of said hobby, I decided that I really did want to make an under-tunic that could be worn independent of both the coat and the leather tunic.

I’m about half way done, maybe as much as 60%. Work still remaining includes: installing an invisible zipper on the left side (my hand is holding it shut), finishing and attaching the sleeves, adding the collar, remaking the bottom section (under the criss-crosses) to get rid of the princess seams, and putting the lining in.

i’m laughing so hard at how advanced technology is in asgard

the reason thor was disoriented on midgard when he got sent down was because that stuff was too basic for him, he was thrown for a loop

And yet, they still can’t detect cloaked ships via tachyon emissions…

I swear I’ve been working on Loki- honestly I have! I just haven’t had anything really worth posting recently…
I should have something new to show for my efforts either this afternoon or tomorrow. (Depending on how far I get after work.)

All right, I lied, I’m probably not going to get much of anything done and posted before Saturday. I’ve pretty much made this my spring cleaning and gardening week, which means no cosplaying while the house is in maintenance upheaval.
On the positive side, I’m off on Saturday, which gives me nearly an entire day to be productive- in a recently cleaned sewing environment, no less.
Sorry, for making you wait, theshatteredsilhouette. ;D
