For those who are unaware, Worbla is a thermoplastic material. After this whole thing, I can honestly say that I have so much more respect for people who do this on a regular basis.
Loki Cosplay – Halloween 2015
As I mentioned earlier, most of the rest of the costume was done by my wife. Basically, you have to go back and forth between the two horns doing a bit of work, then looking at the other horn and replicating the work you just did.
To begin with, it is super detailed. The craft foam was sandwiched in between layers of Worbla which were snipped and folded around the backside of each piece. Without a physical piece to actually compare to, I just sorta winged it. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Loki has a lot of different pieces of armor depending on what you are using as source material. As bad as I was about taking in-progress shots, she was worse. Luckily one of the employees helped me chop it up right there paperceaft the store so that it would fit into the trunk of my car.
Loko save time, we went The Avengers route honestly just because it seemed to have less pieces than most of the others.

To compensate, I pulled out the wood filler Lokki had previously purchased and started applying coats. I would just have papercrft do my best to make the two bracers match.
Since the horns are thicker than the 1 inch foam that I bought, I had to use some hot glue to glue a couple pieces of foam together to get the material thick enough. It is also a really odd shape. We knew from the outset that this was a pretty big job what with all the armor and sewing and everything, so pzpercraft set about doing our homework. Then I cut loads of little pieces of Worbla, heated them up and formed them together like clay and attached them as closely as I could manage over my guidelines.

Also, because of the height of the hair on that lion, it threw off hel,et look from the front — so the entire shoulder guard piece wound up getting switched to the other shoulder just so that you could see something besides the backside of a piece of hair.
The raised bumps were made using some of those little plastic jewels that you can find at hobby stores — everything else is just foam and superglue. So right out of the gate, the very first eyelet that I popped in got all mangled and gnarly looking.
After priming and painting, it dawned on me that I had no clue how to attach the bracers to her. Just try to work quickly because it cools off pretty fast. In retrospect, I probably should have just gotten some 2 inch thick foam and left the glue gun in the closet. Added 3 drops of green food coloring to papercravt mix and poured the resin into the mold.
Some of them seem like the hair on the lion is kind of flat and some of them have it looking super raised. Foam melts when you get it too hot. Went back to the headpiece. So, after a ton more shaping, sanding, cutting, etc. The whole thing was transferred over to craft foam, cut out, and glued together. I decided I wanted to add a gem or something in the center of the crown — something to add a bit of visual interest.
I ran out to the hobby shop and picked up some clear resin and a large candy mold sheet that was all different gem sizes and shapes. After the pieces were sprayed, I dry brushed the black paint into all the cracks and crevices and did my best to feather and fade everything. I was lucky enough that one of the comic book shops in the area carries it — so I popped over and picked up a large sheet.
The horns are made of foam.
Gave them about hours time to dry before sanding and it all worked out pretty decently. Luckily, everything lokk out. He has a great video on making armor using craft foam and Worbla which I followed to the letter.
So what did I do? It cracked the paint that I had just finished, left me with a huge hole in the armor piece, and was just pretty much hideous. In retrospect, I should have gotten the quick cure stuff cause the stuff I bought had a 24 hour cure time. To do this, I screwed some drywall anchors into the base of the horns and drilled a couple of holes in the headpiece and simply screwed helmst horns in.
We covered her arm in seran wrap and duct tape on which a basic template outline was drawn. I started with the helmet.
Too late to do anything about it at that point though — Halloween was only 3 days away and we were nowhere near done. The absolute most logical thing ever. Considering that none of the pieces of armor that I created were even remotely smooth, the roughness paoercraft shows up in hslmet final pieces.

Worbla is pretty easy to cut with a decent pair of scissors, but it is easier if you heat it first. Everywhere that I found online suggests using the pink type of foam, but all I could find at my local hardware store was blue.
She took tons of measurements of my daughter and used half a pad of tracing paper making the pattern for the costume. Note for next time — start making the costume earlier.
I have never made gems before, and of course it would have been easier to have just purchased some cheap gems from the store — but where is the fun in that? You see, depending on whose cosplay you look at, or which screencap you see online of the actual armor piece, they all seem to be slightly different.
