Description
Intially I planned to do Loki for MCM Expo October 2012, but upon the release of the Avengers movie it proved immediately evident that there going to be /a lot/ of fellow Lokis in october, so I decided 10 days before MCM expo May 2012 that I would do him to May instead. This was also decided whilst making my partner an Alucard cosplay on the side and finishing two graphic novels.

As such, I completely broke myself doing it.
The easiest part was probably the mask, whilst the tuks on the front fo the undershirt were the worst. So many layeres of leatherette, and it didn't help that I ran out of one kind of leatherette (which turned out to be discontinued) halfway through so I had to backtrack.

I do love this cosplay though, I don't think I've ever recieved so many comments (and compliments <3) as I did when I wore it to MCM~ Though I must confess, three layers of leathers + 30 degree sunny weather + busy convention = death. I don't think I will ever wear it again in the sun.
