Ellorien Costuming and Cosplay
I just love to make costumes !

Yesterday I was finally able to prime, paint and weather the chest's armor, so here is all of Loki's armor finished at last !
Everything here except for the pommel and guard was made from Worbla's pearly art, with a support layer of 2 or 3mm eva foam for some of the pieces. This costume is my first project using worbla and I really loved working with it !
The pommel and guard were 3d modeled by me and 3d printed by shapeways (they are available for anyone to print on demand !).
My sister @notevenclara
came to help me and provided a much needed set of extra hands to get everyting to stay in place and mark the (many) magnet placement everywhere, so I was also able to start placing them and soon the armor will actually be wearable \o/ Thank you again !
Only the trousers and boot covers left now ! I don't think I will be able to get the trousers done before the convention, so I'll probably wear a substitute this time, but they will be done as soon as possible ...

I'm sorry for not posting a lot lately ... I made a drastic life choice a while ago that means that my life has become a "little" crazy at the moment, so my "cosplay/crafting" dedicated time has been reduced by a LOT those past two weeks (I had almost none at all actually).
I still managed to get a little done, so here are all of the scales for Loki's side chest, plus a little test one I did to see if I liked the size of the little rhinestones I'm using as rivet heads ! The test scale is the wrong size and orientation but it really doesn't matter ^^ It had two layers of plastidip before painting and weathering, and I think it would have needed one more, so now I know for the actual scales !
I'll try to get them done before the week end ...

Loki's pauldron in DONE ... until plastidip and metal wax ^^
I love the design of this piece sooo much, it is really amazing. In order to construct it, I had to deconstruct it entirely, detail by detail and layer by layer, and I really got to appreciate just how thoughtful and clever the design really is. Manipulating pieces and sections of it, I could see how it combines both ancient and futuristic lines and elements, how everything interlocks, overlaps ... I particularly like the snake Jormungandr slithering from the top plate to the bottom one and kind of curling around Fenrir and Loki's shoulder, from his back to his chest ^^
There are so many layers and aspects, often contradictory, within Loki's personnality, and I really appreciate how the artists managed to reflect that into design !
