Tutorial for Painting Loki’s Armor

Loki cosplay in progress

Loki has become a popular costume choice for women; I think I’ve seen more gender-bent interpretations of the costume than guys dressed as the character. Cosplayer Klayr de Gall is working on a version of the trickster’s outfit, and in addition to the wonderful in-progress photos she’s been posting, she also wrote a tutorial on painting the armor to make it look metallic. It appears she started with Worbla and only used gold and dark brown acrylic paint, brushes, and a tissue. The method is straightforward if a little time-consuming. Here’s a sampling of the tutorial:
