Decorative armor collar made for my Lady Loki costume For The Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Balll. The collar was inspired by a similar collar worn by Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, and Norse Mythology; specifically Loki’s child the world serpent Jorgumand.

Base is made from Worbla, primed with gesso, and painted with Metallic acrylic paint, rub’n’buff and clear satin finish spray paint. Collar is lined with moleskin for comfort, and laces closed in the back.

Costume created for a Lady Loki cosplay. Materials used were olive green and black silk, leather, brass findings and zipper stops as decoration.  The skirts and cape are fully lined, and the fur collar is detachable. The cape hooks to the bust line of the corset, which helps distribute the weight. Matching silk and leather fingerless gloves are mid bicep length. The Green leather bag was a Christmas gift from my good friend Alex at Make Believe Costumes. I decided to switch the more solid belt from the inspiration to a chain and medallion belt, with matching hair clips. The earrings match the pieces used to decorate the cape.

Me and a friend are planning to cosplay as Lady Loki and Lady Thor at Wondercon 2014 in April. We are also planning to “Glam-up” the two costumes  soon after and wear them to the masquerade ball, Labyrinth of Jareth.  Both me and my friend are designing and making our costumes as a comic/movie version fusion; although for myself, a lot of inspiration for this project came from this artwork: http://www.nabyn.com/art/at-hoes-before-bros-59082 “hoes before bros”   by ulvar  

I am 98% done with the corset now. All that is left is to add is some trim, but I want to wait and finish up some of the other pieces before I apply it all at once. There is a potentially obnoxious number of zipper stops in my future: http://www.silivren.com/lokicollar.jpg

The corset is made from olive silk shantung, with a coutil strength layer. The bust and hips is covered with woven strips of self bias, decoratively finished with more bias in the form of a serpent (Jorgumand - one of Loki’s monstrous children). The boning is predominantly 1/4” spiral steels, with flat steels at center front and center back.

Overbust corset created for a Lady Loki cosplay. Corset is olive green silk woven bias strips and zipper stops as decoration. Inner strength layer is coutil, with 1/4” spiral and flat steels. The finishing snake detail is a reference to Jorgumand, also known as The World Serpent and one of Loki’s children. Jorgumand is so large he can wrap himself around the world and bite his own tail. In this way all of the strips woven into the corset become the serpentine body of Jorgumand.
