Avengers Assemble - The Would-Be King by blademaster57 Avengers Assemble - The Would-Be King by blademaster57
"It's the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life's joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity."
~Loki (Avengers Assemble)


EDIT: Fixed up the editing a bit - look less overshadowed in the eye department now!

AHAHAHA. I think this cosplay drove me insane - so much work, so much pain - and I'm still going to work on improving him as much as I can.
Will gradually post more photos of this one (some of the ones with my Thor included, of course :heart:), but for now, this 'teaser-y' shot will do!

Dat scepter tho! /shot

Loki Laufeyson: *blademaster57

gaah I remember seeing you at Alcon, I was in awe of your Loki (and the Thor you had with you) so freakin' bad - it really is impossibly fantastic!!! You are just perfect for him omg and your costume making was to die for, I'm amazed at how you made this so brilliantly :heart:

and did you change into a suit on the saturday night? Because I think it was you we 'ran into' in the street with our Avengers cosplay group XD I was attempting to cosplay him too at the time and it was severely underwhelming since we made it in a huge hurry, we've had to take it back to the drawing board a.k.a we tore it up due to being barely salvageable XD I'm hoping to spend more time making a Stuttgart Loki happen instead and hope it turns out half decent! ^^'

;A; Your comment officially made my night, thank you!!! AJHSMKE- MY COSTUME ISN'T EVEN THAT GOOD AMNMHE- /dying
Thor's was, though x'D I have such a beautious brother! /shot I'm hoping to keep improving him but comments like this just really make me proud, so thank you very much - I really appreciate it >//< :heart:

I did, yes! Friday, Saturday and Sunday was Stuttgart-time! And I do think I remember running into you! 8DD Was a weeeensy bit tipsy that night so may have been a tad hyper xD but urf. I know that feel! Bit's of mine were very rushed D; hence the desire to remake bits! If you need any advice/help just drop me a line :) Stuttgart is epic fun to wear though, and much less painful!

Thanks for the watch, too! <3

shush you were BOTH stunning! :D

oh god I know that tipsy feeling so don't worry :lmao: besides it was great being greeted crotch-first by Loki Laufeyson in the middle of the street, and that's not a sentence you get to type every day XD

aw thank you! Haha I can imagine, I about died in all that pleather and eugh especially in the heat it was on saturday, Stuttgart will be a welcome break of sorts :) as a matter of interest, we're working on the wig at the moment, how did you do your flicks so amazingly? The wig I've got is a lace front one so it pushes back naturally and has the hairline, we're just contemplating the best method to get it to flick out atm!

ah it's my pleasure :D and btw your Pandora Hearts cosplays are fabulous too :heart:

Haha, oh god. I remember that now... what in the name of Odin was I thinking?! x'D DAT SENTENCE THO :thumbsup: Be proud - you can tell your children/relatives/randomers in the street ;D haha

Urrf. Yes. I was so ill/dehydrated after that it was painful D; number one piece of advice for all Loki cosplayers - DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND AVOID DIRECT SUNLIGHT x'D
Ah! Thanks for thinking it flicks amazinly x'D mine's a lacefront too~ perfect hairlines, near enough! I did the flicks using a circular hairbrush, lots and lots of hairspray, and a hairdryer on a high-setting, held at a distance so that the fibers wouldn't melt! It all stayed in pretty well, actually :) needs a bit of a touch up, but it's a good method!

;A; :heart: thank you again! That means a lot x

I almost passed out after having mine on for a grand total of 10 minutes, it was the heat more than anything for me just eugh YES, PREACH IT! \o/

ooh thank you! I'll have to give it a try :) I have a circular brush lying around somewhere that's hardly used, it's about time it saw the light of day XD

my pleasure! :heart:

AS EVER, you're such a fantastic Loki. Like, it's unbelievable. You just pull him off so well! Forever impressed at the quality of the wig, especially, because it looks JUST like Loki's hair adsfdhfhdfs.
The expression just screams "tch, peasants" as well, like you're too fabulous for a Midgardian camera yet at the same time, just fabulous enough. Frickin' love it.

You're just amazing!! :tighthug:

This is a great pose. Refreshing over the head-on poses that are mostly used. Might want to consider a blush that's more grey for a shading effect rather than beauty-enhancing effect. Fantastic job on the hair as well, so very, very close to the real thing. Good job!

I liked this one because it had a sort of... sinister effect? x'D Loki is a sinister character, after all!
Well, I used bronzer, which is what's recommended for contouring D; so I don't think there's many other alternatives! I'll take that into account though, and give it a try 8D
Thanks though! I freakin love that wig xD it's a magical wig of wonders! (Despite all the pain of styling it hurrr)

Sinister effect achieved! Ha ha ha ha! Good thinking!

Indeed, bronzer is used for a contouring look but that's with people who want to enhance contours without making them look gaunt or sunken-in. In Loki's case I think (in my opinion, could be completely wrong of course) the gaunt or sunken-in look would be more desired than a "healthy bronzed".

Goodness! That's a WIG?! Wow. Seriously. Think not of the effort of styling it as pain because the alternative would be less than satisfying... imagine going out fully costumed without the wig; imagine how unhappy you would be thinking, "I wish I would have taken the time to style it and put it on". It would eat away @ you to be seen in anything less than all-out. That would probably be way more "painful" than styling the thing. *wink*

I look forward to more pictures from you as you progress your look. Might I make a suggestion? Maybe something in mid air? Yelling, looking very angry? I believe the smirk or grin facial expressions have been done to the proverbial death. A little nostril flare, open mouthed, spittle flying, anger fueled attack posing would be a nice change.

But either way, you look great, dear. Keep it up! Cheers!

Haha thank you x'D SUCCESS!

Thanks for the pointer, then! I did worry I wasn't looking gaunt enough, actually D; because Loki is one gaunt mo'fo! Your opinion is totally right, man! He looks like he needs a freakin sandwich or two throughout the whole movie xD haha

Yep, that's a wig - a lacefront, which gives the effect of a natural hairline... best wig to go for for Loki, imo ^^ I can't even fathom cosplaying him without one (not for this version anyway... dem hair flicks!) so that's true! THE PAIN D;

Thank you! I'm gonna work on one or two costume pieces again before I photoshoot him again (also to make movement in the costume easier) so that kind of shot will be more possible! I'd LOVE to do that kind of image though *A* action-shots are the best! As a general rule I portray 'Avengers!Loki' as quite angry, whereas 'Thor!Loki' is the one I'd be smirking/trolling as x'D (we didnt manage to get the angry shots we were aiming for, but I got myself so ragey at one point that I developed an angry face-twitch x'D LOKI NO. DATS NOT ATTRACTIVE.)

Thanks!! ;A; I'll try!

I think you need to tone down the eyeshadow and mascara like completely ... as you are portraying a male and loki even if he does have a female form doesn't wear his eyes in a smokey fashion. Other than that you did a wonderful job with the costuming and everything ^_^

Have fixed it up a little bit now 8'D sort of. Still a little dark around the eyes (which is odd as I used brown eyeliner in the few places I applied it o_O silly photoshop) but hopefully it looks a bit less OTT now!

Thanks for pointing it out :)

Lolol I'm not wearing any eyeshadow and I wore barely any mascara xD that's just the effect of contrast editing - and actually, his eyes look very darkened/sunken throughout chunks of the film, which is what I was going for here - sorry if it didn't come across properly - I'm a bit of a noob at photo edting.

Thanks, though!
