Hi i started following you for the free-rice thing, but your cosplay is super great and from someone who also is attempting a loki cosplay i am like wow impressed wow. I was wondering though, how did you do the little gold square bead things on the trim of the coat and collar? Because i can't figure out how to do it on mine

Ah! Actually, they are called zipper stops :D I bought them from a website called Supreme Zipper —> http://www.supremezipper.com/

The guys that run the site are super awesome and when I sent them an email about buying the zipper stops they responded with, “Doing a Loki costume?” xD They knew!

You can buy them in gold or silver, but gold is a lot more expensive so I bought silver ones and spray panted them instead. It was a lot of work to get an even coat on all of them, but it’s a lot more cost effective. The spray paint likes to rub off on the pleather/leather though so be careful. 

To put them on I just squeezed them on with a pair of pliers. :3
