Alcon 2013

1st May 2013: Revisit time Finally having the money, and knowing it has to be done, ordered some new boots to try with the Loki costume (no longer platform and more accurate to the film) and studs to stud up the trousers and tunic top.

I'd love to remake the tails to be longer, but if I wear boots that don't add to my height that'd be the cheaper alternative for now. Till I maybe make mk 2 Loki once this is exhausted.

21st October 2012: Scepter minus blades I've being working on the blades to attach the final pieces to them, but there's the main bit finished.
It detaches at the sort of handle for easy transportation, and also where I hide the battery and switch for the lights. The crystal is lit up in this pic, although it just looks like a little ball of something. For my first prop, I'm pleased so far.
I imagine once the blades are added I'll feel differently. Specially on the day when if the batteries go, I have to dismantle to replace the batteries since my plan is to leave it lit all day I'm out rather then turn on and off.
Rechargeable batteries, I love you.

20th October 2012: Scepter building I've never made a prop before, so this is looking rough and not very impressive... BUT. After several days, on and off, I've finally got the base made, and onto the part that'll detach for carrying purposes and the blades. In the process of spraying the gold parts (and vambrace straps at the same time) and then once they're finished and dry, onwards to all the blade parts.

Hopefully, by the end of today I'll have all parts sprayed and being strengthened ready to be aged and attached. Come on Loki stuff

6th October 2012: Sleeves progress After about 8 hours, finished both my sleeves up in terms of the leather decorations he has on there, and just got to work on the gold wrap around trim, and then sew them up and add lining.
So they're about 80% overall done and hopefully by tomorrow, the tunic will be completed and ready to test with belt and coat.

27th September 2012: Trimming and sewing Right now is finishing off the tunic period, with just the sleeves and tidy up to go before it'll be finished.
But, the last order of trimming pieces arrived today, so I've being attaching them to the top of the coat, and the two skirt pieces on the tunic. As far as I know, apart from small details on the sleeves where trim is attached, all the trimming is done.

So very close to a completely sewn cosplay, and soon I'll have a completed piece of armor to attach to the belt strap as well.

Onwards, to the shoulder piece!

21st September 2012: A moment of silence As I can mark this day as the day the coat was all sewn up. Another part down on this cosplay, just the tunic and armour to go.

17th September 2012: Trimmings I just finished adding all the trim to the tails on the coat. It was a little fight to go around the gold ribbon parts, but I managed it and now the bottom of the coat is finished at least.

I'm gonna take it in slightly at the sides on the top to make it a tighter fit and hopefully make it sit better on me, and then onto planning that belt for the shoulder piece. Once the belt is attached to the back, I can sew on the lining neatly and then work on attaching a collar. Then back to more trimming once my next order arrives.

Coat is slowly getting there, but I'm more worried about the tunic right now. I need some help breaking it down then I'd be more comfortable with it.

11th July 2012: Swimming in fabric Ordered the last of my fabric for Loki, or hopefully the last, if I don't make mistakes or under estimated. Though I may need to go get more trim material, and find buckles and zips stoppers August time for edges.

I've also bought and stocked most of the materials I'm going to make the scepter out of, providing it'll work. Here goes for my august plans of something to do during summer.

12th June 2012: Start of many notes I have being starting to break his costume down... starting with that coat of his. So far, I have basic notes over 6 pages for his coat, with his shoulder pieces as well.

Properly shortly going to work on his amour patterns and then break down the under gear for fabric estimates. But yes... this is somewhat go.
Somuchpaperthough.
