My LOKI Costume Tutorial: Under shirt tunic

This version of Loki's costume has been modified by myself to be a little more feminine. It's based off of Loki's outfit from the Avengers. Here is the documentation/explanation of my Halloween costume. At first it wasn't intended to be a tutorial, but I decided that it might be helpful to anyone who might be interested in making a Loki costume. Don't hesitate to comment or ask questions!
This is a part one of multiple costume documentations I will be uploading.

Okay, so the lady who is making the costume is almost finished, but I got to try it on today, and it looks amazing. I am so happy with the results so far! I have been working on my own version of the helmet and it is also very successful. I just need to do another layer of paper mache and spray paint it gold. Could you tell me a few more things? That would be great!
What kind of clothing did you wear underneath the tunic, just black leggings and a long sleeve black shirt with green felt wrapped around the arms? What did you use for the armor on the sleeves and is there a pattern, and what did you do for the boots to make them look, well, Loki-ish? XD I think that's all.

Alllllrighty
I wore black leggings that I found at a store at the mall
under the tunic, I wore a long sleeve green shirt, with little black wrist cuff sleeve things that I made with left over black leather lookin' fabric. The gold armor on my arms is *surprise*! more craft foam, molded carved and painted by yours truly. I don't have a pattern, but you could probably find one online or else just watch the Avengers and take nine bazillion screenshots of loki, haha.
ANd for the boots, I just have tall leather boots already, so I just took two of my black sheets of craft foam and wrapped them around my boots, and cut the foam to have that angular look, I hot glued straps across the opening where they belong, and use pipe cleaners (but of course if you want it to be more sophisticated you could probably come up with something else) as fasteners, I just stabbed them through the foam and twisted them into little spheres on the ends like fuzzy buttons.
I hope that helps! :D

Sorry, I have another question. >.< I want to use this tutorial for my costume this year. How expensive was it for all the materials?
The-Lighted-Soul's avatar
I can't remember for sure, but for all the materials I would say somewhere under thirty dollars. I know that fabric isn't that expensive, I bought 3 yards of the black, which was likely no more than 3 dollars a yard;  2 yards of the green cape material which was probably the same. The foam was inexpensive, like 75¢ a sheet. Paint probably came to 5-6$. It could also vary from where you're getting it all from. I hope I helped!

Thank you, thank you so much for your help! I can't wait to make this! I found someone who is willing to sew all the materials together using you're instructions for a very reasonable price. I can't wait! :D

Do you have a tutorial for the helmet?
The-Lighted-Soul's avatar
I don't, unfortunately 
I did not get the chance to document the process, but in the future I   -might- attempt to recreate it for a tutorial, along with the scepter and tesseract.
