I don't do a lot of tutorials, so I hope this is helpful!

how much material did you buy? like how many yards of the black stuff did you need?

I bought 3 yards, I think there was at least a yard left over, which is still a good idea in case there are mess ups. And depending on your height you might end up using all of it (keep in min that I am very short - 5'2")
i think for the green cape I had 2 yards 
and for the gold trim a half yard

cool thanks! i'm only 5'3"so that should work!
also I see you made a staff. how tall did you make it? is it taller than you? (that's what most people do) and if you cut it out of wood did you use a 3 by 4 or something?

Oh man the staff lol that was tricky
i made the scepter the shorter, unextended version. It's about 3" long
it was made out of a 2.5 foot long,  1.5 inch diameter wooden dowel, crayola sculpting doh/foam stuff, and several sheets of craft foam. I shaped the wider end of the center out of the doh, and when it was dried I cut out shapes of the craft foam sheets to cover the foam and the dowel, and I created the blades/layered metal looking parts out of thicker craft foam, and a crap ton of hot glue. After I painted it. I think I have some pictures of the process somewhere saved on my computer, I'll look for them

That sounds super hard! I'm a bit of a newb when it comes to craft foams and such, but that's cool how you did it! And I look forward to seeing your staff pics!

Oh don't sweat it, craft foam is way easier than you think, just take a crack at it and see how it goes

It wasn't exactly leather, it was more of a faux suede type material, I found it at my local Hobby Lobby. If you looked really closely it almost had a tiny scaly pattern to it (2 years ago, mind you, so they may have stopped carrying it since) I hope this was helpful! :)

You did an amazing job! How much did it cost to make it?

For all the materials I would have to say less than 25$ maybe 30
all of the fabric probably came to >10$
foam was cheap enough 
the kind of paint we got was like 3.99 a bottle
Not too expensive :)

I'm trying to design my own Loki costume, and the perfectionist in me is doing my head in tying to find patterns that I can work off, alternitively, I could get my hands on some cheep material and rough it our first...
