Ellorien Costuming and Cosplay

I'm a french cosplayer and I just love to make costumes and learn and share as many things as I can along the way :) Also, Ravenclaw ^^

Making progress on Dany ! The right shoulder and crossing band are pretty much done ! The left shoulder still needs a little more metallic organza inbetween the pins before I can move to beading and embroidering, but the bottom of the left crossing band is done as well. I really love the beaded details on the shoulder and neckline ! So. Much. Texture. in this project ! #cosplay #costuming #daenerys #daenerystargaryen #daenerysstormborn #khaleesi #daeneryscosplay #gameofthrones #Got #gameofthronescosplay #gotcosplay #scales #embroidery #metallicorganza #handstitching #beads #miyuki
Making some progress on Dany's scaaaaly beaded shoulders ! I LOVE the look of these ! My phone camera is struggling with them but I don't really blame it ^^ they have that copery golden base, but they also have a patina finish that shifts color between rose to even greenish blue hues, it's really beautiful. They are the screen accurate beads (Miyuki Tila beads in 5mm in metal patina iris, and some Miyuki Magatama (small drops) in 4mm) as listed on Michele Carragher's website ! #cosplay #costuming #daenerys #daenerystargaryen #daenerysstormborn #khaleesi #daeneryscosplay #gameofthrones #Got #gameofthronescosplay #gotcosplay #scales #embroidery #organza #handstitching #beads #miyuki

I have no progress at all to show you this week, so here is the last picture we took of beta Loki at Comic Con ! I was trying to have fun with it, but I really need to learn how to pose XD The rythm and amount of tests at the university has gone from intense to fairly insane over the last two weeks and it will remain the same for at least two more, so there will be very little progress here :( but after that it should go back to normal, and after christmas I'll have a lot of free time \o/ I can't wait, I'm already planning for a lot of cosplay projects to advance during that break ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #worbla #worblaspearlyart #zipperstop #led #metalmesh #metalmeshfabric #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay #comicconparis #pariscomiccon
This week-end's progress ! Dolore's petticoat is finished ... I think ? ^^ I was planning on adding a short ruffle fall on the back pannel, but I feel like this is enough volume ... I will see if I need additionnal ruffles when the pleated skirt is added on top ! (It's also missing the blue ribbon that will be threaded in the lace at the hem). Both the petticoat and bustle pad were made partially following great tutorials from @izabelapriorattire on her blog A Damsel in This Dress ! My mannequin is a size larger than me so everything is not falling quite right here, the corset is too open and the petticoat is a bit hight, but I am happy with how it falls in person ! The front pannel has two darts on each hip and the back pannel has three boxpleats, and everything was assembled with french seams, so it's one of my cleanest construction jobs, I am quite happy with it ! (And it's so swishyyy !) #cosplay #costuming #dolores #doloresabernathy #wyatt #dolorescosplay #corset #underbust #lace #broderieanglaise #bustlepad #petticoat #ruffle #westworld #westworldcosplay
Making (little, slow) progress on Dolores ! The corset was already done and I finished the bustle pad ! The petticoat and chemise are patterned and ready to be cut, and only one lace is still missing (but should arrive soon). I'll post progress pictures as soon as I manage to convince myself to take Loki off the mannequin for a while XD There is a serious lack of blue fabric in there, though ! I am still trying to find an alternative to the fabric that got lost and never arrived ... It's funny, I don't usually like frilly lacy things ! But the overall look of this will be delicate AND fierce ! #cosplay #costuming #dolores #doloresabernathy #wyatt #dolorescosplay #corset #underbust #lace #broderieanglaise #bustlepad #westworld #westworldcosplay
Loki's "first convention" state ! Seeing her like that makes me sooo happy ! and also a little proud ^^ I have learned so much on that project, worked with a lot of materials that were completely new to me, made armor for the very first time ... I love that costume so much, not just for itself but because it made me progress ^^ And it's not over yet ! I still have some ameliorations to make, to find suitable boots, and to make the trousers, boot covers and dagger (and tesseract ? and a better light system for my magic hand !), however after working almost exclusively on Loki for something like two months now, I need a break XD I will still be working on her of course, but I'm going to start working on Daenerys and Dolores again too. Very excited about that ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #pauldron #vambrace #scales #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #patinatingwax #weathering #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
Soooo ... there's the beta version of Loki ! She is FAR from being finished, I still need to make the trousers and boot covers, the dagger, and after wearing her for one day I listed a few things that I need to change/make better ... But I am soooo happy that I was able to bring her to a wearable state and actually wear her to Paris Comic Con ! It has been quite a journey ^^ A lot of people complimented me on my costume and actually took the time to look at the details, on the armor, the construction, and materials, and that just means the world to me ! I'm all about details and craftsmanship and learning new techniques, so thank you soooo much to everyone who payed attention to that ! Especially @wolpixcosplay , who also introduced me to a group of super nice and fun cosplayers ! A tiny note about the black and gold rope braid : I read somewhere that in Avengers Thor wears a strand of Loki's hair braided with is own as a sign of mourning. I don't know if that is accurate, but I loved the idea very much, and since this is Dark World Loki, I wanted her to wear something in honor of Frigga. She wouldn't have received an actual strand of her mother's hair given her position at the time, so I decided on a strand of gold thread as a symbol and a reminder of her. #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #worbla #worblaspearlyart #zipperstop #led #metalmesh #metalmeshfabric #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay #comicconparis #pariscomiccon
Got a new recruit ! He's a bit strange, keeps talking about a ring and doesn't look too interested in looking for infinity stones, but he'll do for now ... Today was Comic Coooon, and Loki's first convention ! It was an insane day ! I met some suuuper nice people in a Marvel group, and so many people complimented my costume and my work ! I'm super shy and I don't know how to pose for pictures but it was a lot of fun ^^ I'll talk more about all of that later, I am just too exhausted right now ^^' #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #zipperstop #worbla #worblaspearlyart #evafoam #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay #nazgul #ringwraith #comicconparis
All of this is standing on it's own \o/ Installing the magnets is so great, I'm finally able to wear all of this on myself without having to hold everything in place, and see the actual result ! ^^ Only the rib pieces left to attach on each side and all of the armor will be wearable ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #armor #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #patinatingwax #zipperstop #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
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 ... #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #armor #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #thermoforming #3dmodeling #3dprinting #patinatingwax #weathering #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
The current state of things ! I am sooo happy (and also a little proud ^^) to see her take shape like this \o/ I still have a LOT to do, but she will definitely be wearable for Paris Comic Con, and I can't wait !! Can I just say once again just how much I LOVE this costume, and how intricate, how layered, how detailed and how meaningful it is ... the costume designers did a wonderful job designing it, and the more I work on it the more I appreciate it ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #pauldron #vambrace #scales #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #patinatingwax #weathering #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
Loki's side-chest scales are done ! I love them, they make the all thing look so much more real and complete ! They also catch up the light in a very nice way when I move, the patinating wax is really good at that ^^ I'm slowly getting there ! She won't be finished for Paris Comic Con in two weeks, but I think she will be wearable, I'm so excited ! Sorry again for not posting a lot lately, life is really getting in the way, but's it is all for a good thing ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #armor #scales #evafoam #patinatingwax #weathering #zipperstops #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
Loki's vambraces are completely finished \o/ I'm seeing the end of the line, and at the same time it feels sooo far ! ^^ this is driving me a bit crazy ! I really don't know if I'm going to be able to wear her for Paris Comic Con (that was my hoped for deadline, but life is getting in the way ...), but I'm going to try ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicostume #lokicosplayer #armor #vambrace #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #patinatingwax #weathering #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
I finished the edge detail layers of the vambraces and their attach system at the wrist ! I really love how intricate the armor is and how nothing is ever simple in this costume, everything that looks like one piece from afar is actually three or four differents things layered together ^^ #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #armor #vambrace #handplates #worbla #worblaspearlyart #foam #evafoam #metalmesh #metalmeshfabric #zipperstops #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
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 ... #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #scales #foam #evafoam #plastidip #paint #patinatingwax #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
The panels are attached to the top's lining ! This is officialy a coat ! The only thing left is to attach the outter layer of the coat to the top of the panels by hand, and add the (very last) zipper stoppers, and the coat will be finished ! I didn't anticipated just how heavy the coat was going to be ! I knew from the individual panels with all those metal teeth that there would be a bit of weight, but this is far more than I thought ^^ It's perfectly fine when it's worn, but it is heavy to manipulate on the mannequin ^^ Next step (after attaching the outter layer) : finishing the rib armor ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicostume #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #coat #panels #metalmesh #metalmeshfabric #leather #armor #pauldron #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
It's just thrown on the mannequin but hiiiiiih ^^ The coat is now lined, topstitched and "zipped" all around ^^ Only the armholes left (I need to make them slightly deeper) and I will be able to attach all the panels and actually ... finish the coat ! I know how long the "still to be done" list still is, but I am starting to admit to myself that she is almost finished ! I just can't wait, and at the same time I think I'm going to be a little nostalgic ^^ (until I start, you know, Lokis number 2, and 3 ...) #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #coat #zipperstops #armor #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
I am still in the rather tedious process of finishing a lot of little not very interesting things, like attach systems and forever adding more zipper stoppers to the coat since I received the new ones, so I don't have a lot to show you at the moment, but here is the completely finished pauldron ! I also finished the second hand plate's fixation system today, along with the (almost) last zipper stoppers on the coat's pannels ! Still a LOT to be done, but we're getting there ! #cosplay #costuming #loki #lokicosplay #lokicosplayer #lokicostume #armor #pauldron #fenrir #jormungandr #evafoam #worbla #worblaspearlyart #patinatingwax #weathering #thor #thorthedarkworld #marvel #marvelcosplay
