I have been asked about the way I made my helmet. I definitely decided to do this costume at the last minute and didn’t have a ton of money to invest in it.

That said, I used mostly leftovers from other projects to make this.

First I started off with a face mask from Joann’s that I cut to fit the design. Then using that as a base I created a mold of my head by wrapping my head in saran wrap and then covering that with painter’s tape.

This mold I used as a patern for the craft foam base. I didnt take pictures of that part, sorry! I took basic craft foam and hot glued it into the shape of the painters tape mold. Then I took silk flower foam and carved a cone which was attached to the top of the head and then covered with even more craft foam.

Over that I took Elmers Wood Filler and coated the entire surface. I let that dry over night before starting the never endin process of sanding. Seriously I sanded for Days!!!!! I sanded until it was smooth, searched for grooves or cracks, covered those in more wood filler and then sanded some more.

Once I was happy with the evenness of the surface I began coating the helmet in gesso. I gave it several coats then sanded that too. Repeatedly.

Then I started the wings. I used the classic craft foam sandwiched between worbla method before heating it to mold the individual grooves and curves. I then repeated the entire wood filler/gesso/sanding method once again on both wings.

Between coats I sketched the engraving design on the helmet and carved it out with my dremel. I added a half pearl to the temple of the helmet.

Finally I attached the wings to the sides with hot glue and sprayed the whole thing with primer.

At last I spray painted it silver and attached dark cellophane to the eyes.

Hope this helps!

Tiny Princess Thor has acquired a little brother! Tiny Prince Loki, age six months, made his (very brief) debut at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 on Friday and promptly stole and gnawed on Thor’s hammer. Also he met a Big Prince Loki who he was not so sure about. (Thank you, kind Loki costumer, for indulging us.)

Tiny Prince Loki’s costume is based on Thor and the Warriors Four, when everyone got turned into babies. It’s basically a green onesie with gold accents, a gold headband with wee little horns, and gold cuffs. When he’s a little bigger, I might make it a little more detailed, assuming Thor hasn’t outgrown her dress by then.
