It cracked the paint that I had just finished, left me with a huge hole belmet the armor piece, and was just pretty much hideous. The shoulder piece was tricky. Where we live it gets pretty cold on Halloween, so the inside of the coat was lined with green fleece and cotton. In retrospect, I probably should have just gotten some 2 inch thick foam and left the glue gun in the closet.

Foam melts when you get it too hot. Secondly, I used eyelets that were too large for the eyelet pliers that I had. Let me tell you something — if you have any scratches or imperfections, shiny paint sucks. So, to all of you who have inspired, my hat is off to you — and if I ever am lucky enough to meet you, drinks are on me for all your help in making my little girl happy! After priming and painting, it dawned on me that I had no clue how to attach the bracers to her.

For those who are unaware, Worbla is a papercraf material. Some of them seem like the hair on the lion is kind of flat and some of them have it looking super raised.

To begin with, it is super detailed. The shoulder piece was the trickiest part — primarily because I strayed from the formula.

Basically for the hair, I used the v-cuts that I had previously made and made indentations in the Worbla to serve as a guide. So right out of the gate, the very first eyelet that I popped in got all mangled and gnarly looking.

I started with the helmet. I used a bit of vaseline in the mold to act as a release and set about mixing up the resin. So I dremeled out all the holes and simply superglued in the other eyelets.

So, after a ton more shaping, sanding, cutting, etc. To start, I had to size the bracer pieces to my daughter. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. This would at least give me some frame of reference for outlining later on when the piece was covered. Luckily, everything worked out. Several coats of gesso and lots more sanding and it was time to attach them to the headpiece.

I glued some tin foil on the back of the gem to help reflect the light through it. Just foam, superglue, and more plastic jewels. I did a lot of the straps and buckles and stuff, but all the fabric bits were up to her. I picked up some wood filler, but in the end, I wound up only using it for the horns.

I had a leather coat hanging in the closet that had managed to get a hole in it a few years back, so the decision was made that this coat would get cut up and become all of the leather pieces for the costume. The rest of it was magic. 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. 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.

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 the horns in. 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.

To compensate, I pulled out the wood filler I had previously purchased and started applying coats.

When I got home I spent a good deal of time sitting in the floor watching The X-Files and practicing carving on a spare piece of foam to get the hang of it. We covered her arm in seran wrap and duct tape on which a basic template outline was drawn.


Added 3 drops of green food coloring to the mix and poured the resin into the mold. After priming, several coats of paint were sprayed. So, once I had the basic outline of the horn shapes cut out and glued up, I set about trying to shape them into actual horns. Also, because of the height of the hair on that lion, it threw off the 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.

I know that was the case for me anyway. So, after all the foam pieces were covered, detailed, and formed, everything was coated in about 5 layers of wood glue. In truth, pretty much this entire costume was planned around what this dude had to say because of his phenomenal results making a much more impressive Loki costume for his own child. We wound up attaching the armor pieces to the costume with velcro and superglue and finished the whole thing about 30 minutes before we were supposed to meet friends for trick-or-treating.

So, my daughter Lily decided earlier this year that she wanted to be Loki for Halloween. 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. 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 in the store so that it would fit into the trunk of my car. Just try to work quickly because it cools off pretty fast.
