Lady Loki Headdress by MorganCrone Lady Loki Headdress by MorganCrone
This horned diadem was created for a customer who cosplayed as Lady Loki at the April 12th 2012 Hollywood premier of the Avengers movie. I have never heard of Lady Loki prior to this commission so I didn’t have much to go on and so the entire outfit was more so based on the Norse legends of Loki. The diadem was designed exclusively for the customer and I will never create another one of its kind. I do take commissions but I will never duplicate this piece, the customer has exclusive rights to the design. It marked a huge turning point in her life and is an extremely personal piece, please respect that.

This is the lovely cosplayer who commissioned this piece, go check out her page!

This diadem was hand sculpted out of epoxy clay, sanded, polished, primed, and painted. Countless hours of work went into this piece.

*THIS DESIGN IS PROTECTED UNDER COPYRIGHT LAW*


**DO NOT COPY THIS DESIGN IN ANYWAY.**


I went to great length to make sure this piece did NOT look like any pre-existing version of Lady Loki to ensure it was an original and one of a kind piece. This piece is an entirely original design which I hold exclusive rights to. DO NOT COPY, DUPLICATE, OR REPRODUCE THIS DESIGN IN ANY WAY IN ANY MEDIUM. THIS IS NOT</i> STOCK!


You can see it being worn in the "Marvel's The Avengers Red Carpet World Premiere" video on youtube at about 1-hour-15-minutes

For commission information and pricing please refer to my DA Journal entry here: morgancrone.deviantart.com/jou… or contact me via email: Morgan@MorganCrone.com

*UPDATE*
It has come to my attention that there is an ebay seller who is making exact copies of this piece. Please be aware that this is a ONE OF A KIND piece and any replicas or you may see in NO WAY have the permission to use this design. If you find this headdress being sold elsewhere please report it. This piece was NOT based on ANY comic Loki design so any piece that is an exact or close copy of this design IS NOT taken from any other source.
Thank you.

**UPDATE #2**

After far too many incidences of copies of this design or use of the photos of this piece being used as stock despite my extensive statements of the design being my exclusive intellectual property I have had to alter and slightly obscure parts of these photos in an attempt to make it a little more dificult for them to be used as stock. I appologise for the excessive and ugly branding, but people simply will not respect the rules.

Would you do another for commission? This is amazing!

I do take commissions, yes. However I am booked up for quite a while and I will be switching to a new material for these sorts of things that I have to practice with. I cannot continue using the epoxies for large projects for health reasons. The new material will also allow for lighter pieces and hopefully a lower commission price due to less work time involved. You can however at any time email me at Morgan_Crone@yahoo.com to reserve a commission spot for when I open them back up. :)

I'll let you know if I am able to take any new commissions in time. I need to get the material (it's still on its way being shipped here) and get an idea of work time and amount of work involved. I also need to finish the commissions in line before you. I have quite a few queued up.

I will be making at least 2 standardized designs that I can use a mould as a template for. I should have 2 designs done by June or July and will be taking pre-orders once I have the master sculpts finished and ready to be moulded if you would be interested.

Gorgeous!
Is epoxy clay like Play Doh or real clay to work with? I've never even seen it before. I've seen pictures of the containers on the internet. Is it in powder form that you have to mix?

The epoxy clays are nothing like playdough but to work like firing clays. It's a 2 part clay, poly resin and a catalyst, the chemical composition varies between brands. The two parts are mixed in equal parts by kneading them together until the colour is solid and free of streaks. Some brands work well with water like clay but some require a liquid solvent or oil to be worked. There are some brands that are ok to work with bare hands and some require gloves as they result in chemical burns. The stronger ones are generally the ones that hurt as they are made for repairs on pipes, boat, metal and so on, they are not designed for sculpting but work marvellously. I do like to mix different brands to get different textures as needed. I'd say they are worth a try and do ware gloves if you can. I have too small of hands to ware the latex gloves and I have to discontinue working in the epoxies to the extent I do because of chemical contact issues. As far as brands to try though, I recommend All-Fix and Apoxy Sculpt as far as working with regular firing clay type things and Amazing Sculpt for working with solvent smoothing agent. Amazing Sculpt is actually the strongest of the lot that work well for sculpting it's just a little trickier to use, it does intermix with the Apoxy Sculpt and All-Fix to get a mix between strength and ease of use, you can still get away with using just water with the strength of the Amazing Sculpt but a little 50% or 60% rubbing alcohol works well too but only for that mix. Also, lip gloss like Lipsmackers or the dollar store off brand tubes work really well for smoothing once a moderate cure has set in. It just has to be cleaned off with alcohol or dish soap once the object it cured. There's a lot more I could tell you about tips and tricks but I'll wait until you know if you even want to try it. Then feel free to contact me for more information learned from trial and error :)

I take commissions, yes. I am currently looking in to different materials though, I cannot keep using the epoxy as it is causing some health problems for me. If you send me an email at Morgan_Crone@Yahoo.com I can let you know when I will be taking commissions again and the updated price range. Thank you!
