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.

Loki

Loki

Loki is a recurring antagonist from the Marvel movies and comic books. His persona was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but he originates from Norse mythology as the god of trickery and mischief. He is the adoptive son of Odin and brother of Thor. In contrast to his brother’s outgoing personality, Loki is reserved, yet he is also sly and deceitful. He usurps power for his personal gain to rule over Earth, driven by spite and jealousy of his father’s favoritism for Thor. He made his cinematic debut in Thor (2011), where he was portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.
