Lady Thor and Lady Loki helmets WIP by JabberBabyWocky645 Lady Thor and Lady Loki helmets WIP by JabberBabyWocky645
Thank you everyone who showed interest in making their own, I am glad and amazed you liked my version of the helmets. So, at long last, I completed a full tutorial! They take patience but they are very affordable to make, considerably easy, and very lightweight. Here you go:

Hello! I'm making a Thor helmet for my cosplay, and yours was the best I've seen so far. The instructions were very good but if it wouldn't be too troubling could you elaborate on them for me? Like, a step by step? If not than that's fine! Thank you for your time :)

How did you make these? I am looking to make my own Lady Loki helmet and am having a hard time finding a good tutorial for how to make one.

Yes, I did. All of the steps I took are in the description. If they don't help, I could type up better ones for you. I don't mind questions either. :)

Is there any chance I could get more detailed instructions on how you shaped the frames and made the horns?

Of course. I may still have a photo somewhere of the wire base, if not, I may be able to sketch it real quick for you with some instruction. I'll get back to you soon!

May I just ask a few questions?

1. What's is this 'Mod Podge'? I have heard it been used frequently for Loki helmets, and I hardly hear about it in Australia.

2. Did you use a heart foam because I can't seem to find one anywhere! Do you think a circle one will work?

Thank you!

No Problem!

1. Mod Podge is just a common brand name. Any craft store should have it, be it the paint on or spray on. It's a great adhesive as well as sealant for art projects like collages and painted items.

2. I used a foam block (1-3/16 in x 9-7/8 in x11-7/8 in) and carved the shapes out but I'm pretty positive a heart or circle shaped foam would work well too. The block takes more carving out but you can carve out the exact shape you desire.

Hope that helps! No worries about asking me more if you need to. :)

1. Thanks! So does it seal the foam so it will make it harder and a better surface to paint on?

2. Oh, alright. Well you carved it out incredibly well! I might just end up using a foam circle and be lazy hehe. Resources are limited in Australia, I'm afraid.

Thanks so much for your time!! (:

1. I put a thin layer of paper mache over the foam on the horns to smooth it out. Tissue paper is tricky to mache, but it works best to smooth the surface and paint on. I applied the Mod Podge after painting to seal the paint on.

2. That's too bad, I'm sure it will turn out great! Good luck and have fun costuming!

1. Ah, thank you! I don't have much experience with foam horns hehe. That's exactly the response I was looking for! This is going to help very, very much! Thanks!

2. Yeah, I'll just make do with whatever I can get my hands on. Thank you and good luck with your further cosplaying too!

My fiancee is a loki fan and she is trying to make a helmet. She is amazing at paper mache do u think the horns would be okay if they were made out of it instead of foam?

Yes, I'm sure they would be just as good. :) I just went with foam in case paper mache would be heavier but I'm sure there is not much of a difference in weight.

It would be tricky not knowing you and your friends head sizes since these were both fitted to my sister and I and come to find out, I have a really small head :P Haha I may be able to work on other helmets after this October since I'm hastily working on costumes. What's the available time frame?

well done you! I have always dreamed of complying however my bank account has always suggested otherwise... who know, maybe I could give something a go :) Good luck with the rest of the costume, it will be interesting to see how you go about the costume :D

Awesome. I hadn't even thought of that. I was going for a very modern interpretation of Thor's helm...I may do this instead xD

Thank you for sharing :heart:

Thanks! :) Yeah, I went for more of a crown-helmet kind of look so they would be more feminine and light weight. Happy to help with idea's!

Wow very impressive. I never thought of using those materials. I'm always on a budget too, might try it myself now.
