Lady Loki- Enchantress Diadem by InKibus Lady Loki- Enchantress Diadem by InKibus
Not really my most original creation, just search DA for many versions of the Lady Loki headdress.
I was asked to make this one with a strong basis to some of the original comic-book art, and some touches to the
film version.
Detailing and back

The base is mesh wire and fiberglass, covered with bondo and magic sculpt.
The horns took me 2 months of procrastinating. I had wooden block that could be screwed to the head base, and got a sturdy wire for each one to make the core.
I was hesitant to use straight magic sculpt for the horns, though. I finally found some hard insulation/foam block, jig sawed out the horns, whittled and sanded that foam to shape, and then melted a trench in each horn to lay that aforementioned wire in. I gorilla glued that in place, then dipped light cotton cloth in resin glue, and wrapped that around each horn. The result was something like a shell over the foam, and I could sand it smooth and fill defects with bondo.
Viola. Watch for it at Dragon Con. ;)
Mine uses elastic headbands as well/ There several things I wanted to to differently, and will change in future versions.
But I am truly pleased with the results, and best of all?
It weighs only 15 ounces.

 YES, I DO MAKE THESE FOR SALE.  I get this question on a weekly basis. Bored 
CAN I MAKE YOU ONE?
La la la laYES. La la la la Please send me a private note or email me at inkiwirks-at-yahoo.com (and don't be surprised if I do not reply overnight, I'm a busy person)
Note, I charge accordingly, but take payments in increments so spread that out. I do ship overseas, buyer pays shipping.Cough 
And also you will most likely be put on a WAITING LIST. I will certainly have other projects under way, so if you need this for a specific date, I must be told upfront and may not be able to complete it right away. But feel free to ask, because I've made a bunch. ;)
I may take up to 2-3 months to complete as well, depending on what else I am working on.

I'm repeating anyone with good common sense when I say "This is fabulous". However I needs to be said every day.

Hi, this is wonderful! I would love to have one of these, do you take commissions? I cosplayed as Lady Loki at SDCC last year and my helm was wayyyyy too heavy. Looking for a better one!  

Thanks!

This is truly amazing! I am under a wire to make a Lady Loki diadem/crown/thing in a week and this helped a lot! I'm doing a 'battle ready' Lady Loki for a sword fighting troupe that I am in and this actually has given me a few ideas! I'm super fond of the straps and such and your horns are super flawless!!!
