baby loki vs. BAMF loki
This is such a glorious example of costume showing character. The basic cut of the clothes and the decoration is the same, but the silhouette is completely different - Avengers!Loki looks much wider, thanks to the cut of his coat and the armor underneath it. They’ve changed the contrasting colors on his coat from the shoulders to the lapels, which draws attention to the chest piece. The armor is heavier, more like it’s actually there to protect him than for decoration, but it’s the same bias web pattern that leaves him flexible. And at the same time, the metal pieces have more decoration on them. In Thor, he looks young; in Avengers, he looks ancient, like a being from another universe who will fuck your shit up and doesn’t need a reason.
