Some cosplayers happen to look exactly like characters they’re cosplaying or use enhance similarities in appearance with makeup. Serg Loki Mirage Cosplay has a couple examples in that category thanks to his Loki and Thranduil costumes. He resembles the Thranduil portrayed in The Hobbit movies right down to the regal and slightly mean air. He recently completed a new photo shoot for the character, and he looks positively otherworldly. If you’re feeling envious of the Thranduil armor, you can purchase a custom set made by Serg — there’s a picture of the set below. It’s made from a cast with a metal cover and includes everything from the diadem to the leg armor. It’s available for purchase on Etsy.
