    Heya guys!

    Me and three other very talented guys are putting together a King Loki costume from Thor 2011. The armour and helmet are fiberglass. The armour itself is in its final stages of construction with the helmet and garments to begin very soon. The completion time (without helmet) is estimated at late April/early May. Here is a teaser of the armour (sculpted by the talented Mike Burleigh).

    Here is a much later picture to show progress!

    Here is it finished for those to lazy to get to page 3 ;)

    Very nice, so are you clay-sculpting the armor and then fiberglassing over? It is coming along great. I'd love a quick how to, I coud apply it to something I'm working on.

    Very nice mate, can wait to see it all come together. Having seen a ton of ironman and with the caps and thors catching up, it will be nice to see something different like Loki.

    From one Loki to another... I cannot begin to describe how much I love your build thus far. King Loki is NOT an easy one to tackle and I'll be coming back for more. :)

    I'm starting to play my own loki costume - I had decided on the less armoured version, but your armour looks just so fantastic that it makes me want to try making some myself. I love the chest pieces, but i really adore the bracers you just put up! Incredible! I will keep checking back for inspiration :D

    Right lemme see if I can answer your questions :)

    -I 've drawn a lot of pieces but did it's usefull?

    Yes that's exactly how mine was made! In some cases (like the chest wings) only one template was drawn and then flipped to ensure symmetry!

    -For the armour, which materials are used, only clay??

    The sculpts are clay and then the finished piece is done in fiberglass.

    -How many hours I going to past on the confection?


    Not 100% sure what you mean here if you are asking how long it took then I started just for before the film was released so just over a year.

    -How much is it for the whole material?

    Just talking about the armour its cost around about £600 with paint etc etc.

    Well, I hope that you can answer quickly and.... YOUR WORK IS JUST AMAZING!!!!!!!
    -sorry for my english, I'm french...-


    Thanks for the nice comments and no problem I hope I could help!

    If you need to know anything else please feel free to contact me :)

    Thanks

    Quick question for you - and your armor looks amazing by the way! I am looking forward to the finished product.

    Those boots that you ordered - are they the rubber type riding boots? If so - how do they fit and feel? I am considering a pair for a costume but I am afraid that I will have swamp foot by the end of the day - if you don't want to reply in the thread just PM me.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the complement!

    Regarding the boots I have yet to wear them for any major period of time. A friend of mine did buy a pair when she saw mine though and wore them about 5 hrs with no problems. The venue was hot and sweaty so they seem to be good!

    Perfectly smooth surface and a good gloss coat! Most importantly and a mistake done by a lot of Loki costumers is that his armour is bronze NOT gold! :) Hope that helps.

    Re: King Loki- Thor 2011: Painted armour page 2!

    I'm liking it a lot!

    The problem with Loki colours is that he looks completely different behind the scenes than in the movie itself, due to lightning and always being surrounded by golden sets. So, using the armor's true colour might end up not looking so "screen accurate" despite being the true color. I think that's why most costumers prefer having a golden paint after all. I've tried to find a balance using some dark/brownish golden which looks like bronze under certain lightning circunstances and more golden under direct sunlight, but I haven't use that painting for a full Loki costume yet to see how it works.

    Anyways, I love the colour you've chosen and I might do some tests with it if I find a similar one! I'm looking forward to seeing your complete costume

    Awesome!! It is coming out great! I can't wait to see more.

    I got to see the real armor once. It was displayed at the Fashion Institute of design and & merchandising, they have costumes from movies exhibited there every year. you can't take pictures. But I was determined to get one of Loki's armor, and i got one of Thor's too. It was so cool.
