Ragnarok Loki pt 2:
I wanted my helmet to have a ponytail that was similar to the concept art for the first Thor film and some of the comic versions of Loki.
I made a little well-thingy and then detailed it with some celtic knot work that was painstakingly made from strips of worbla and tears. This would become the case for the wefts.
The horns were the next step. So many different avenues and the original sketch for my Ragnarok Loki included a helmet that was loosely based on the MCU version. But....after creating a costume so far that had so many different textures and organic elements to it, I ultimately decided I didn't want to do something that looked a lot like the MCU helmet (as much as I loved the concept). Nah. I decided instead to take some inspiration from nature! What could I find that was organic, textured, unique, and would be fun to paint and detail? Blesbok horns! Ridged, curved....beautiful. :3
And lo and behold....
Look at this beautiful masterpiece of a Loki design!! Earth X Ultimates Loki had some pretty badass horns. What's even cooler is that this is canon, and I could
Now, the key was finding a nice balance between the look of the Blesbok horns and the Earth X Loki and the MCU helmet I originally planned for this project. I decided to take the texture and overall appearance of the Blesbok horns and use it with the curved shape of the MCU horns. Or something similar anyway.
