Sylvie from Loki

Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) is a character in Loki on Disney+. She is the rogue variant that the TVA has been trying to track down. Loki is the only one who can stop her because she is a variant of himself. However, she hates being referred to as Loki, and has decided her name is Sylvie. Her magical ability is enchantment, which manifests as green orbs from her hands. Along with the accurate name, we can assume this is Enchantress, who studied as a sorcerer under Loki in the comics. Now stuck on the planet Lamentis, the two must work together to escape. While Sylvie’s outfit resembles her “original” character, her helmet has a broken horn to symbolize her uniqueness.

TVA Loki

Tom Hiddleston has been in the MCU almost from the beginning and Marvel fans the world over know him best as Loki. Loved by many, hated by some, he can be a divisive character. Tortured and manipulated by Thanos, maligned by most of his adoptive family, and eventually having his character essentially reset after the events of Endgame, Loki is a complex character that fans cannot wait to explore in his new Disney+ series.

The official trailer has already ignited the cosplay urge in some fans. Loki’s active Time Variance Authority (TVA) work clothes are of particular interest and with a little DIY the look is absolutely possible to pull off. Even better, many of the pieces can be used in other cosplays! And fans know that sort of glamour work is right up Loki’s alley.

You’ll want to start with a shoulder length black wig in Loki’s trademark style. For the main body of the costume you will need a brown windbreaker, brown slacks, black shoes, a black leather belt, and a white button down shirt. Loki’s only two obvious accessories are the orange TVA patch on his coat and his striped tie. You can get the patch on Etsy but the tie will take a little bit of DIY.

Start with a base tie in light brown. Use acrylic paint in gold, bronze, and dark brown to add the stripes. Be sure and add the hourglass in gold to one of the dark brown stripes as well. The acrylic will make the tie stiff but it will also stick to the fabric and the color should be more vibrant. Do a test patch on the part of the tie that goes under your collar first, however. If the colors aren’t bright enough, use white paint as a base for the stripes and then paint the colors on top of that.

With your tie done and your patch in place, you’re ready to check out time variants of your own.

Loki from the Disney+ “Loki” Exclusive Clip

Everyone loves Loki, so no wonder he’s getting his own self-titled series on Disney+. Slated for a release in May 2021, Tom Hiddleston returns as our favorite god of mischief for a six episode season. It follows what happens after he escaped with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. The new clip dropped last Thursday along with the “WandaVision,” “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “What If?” trailers respectively. In addition, Marvel revealed the logos to more upcoming shows and movies. We know how quick cosplayers are to assemble the latest designs, so consider yourself taken care of with this costume guide.

Leah of Hel

In the Marvel comics, Leah of Hel is the loyal Asgardian handmaiden of Hela, daughter of Loki. Despite Leah’s disdain for the trickster god, he takes a liking to her and is committed to being her BFF. For this costume, you can remove the black lace and replace it with yellow lining for the most authentic look.
