Sylvie’s costume, like all of the characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is legendary. The famous Loki Variant has a unique appearance that plays off her Sacred Timeline variant – Loki Laufeyson the Frost Giant. Sylvie’s costume is distinctive because of her corset, dark cloak, and iconic broken horns. A Sylvie costume can be hard to make or find, but you can easily put together your own with things you have at home and few things from online.

Sylvie is a strong and independent female anti-hero and superhero. She is driven by her heart and emotions, just as much as she is by logic. That balance makes her an unpredictable and interesting character, because viewers never know her next move. If you are looking for a strong female superhero for your next costume, Sylvie is the perfect choice!

DIY Sylvie Costume

If you aren’t looking to spend that much on a premade costume, you can totally make one on your own for a fraction of the price. I found some pieces thrifting, some online, and even used some things I already had. And you can easily do the same. 

I put together a Sylvie Costume this year using some things I already had in my wardrobe and with a few Amazon purchases. You can also find a lot of these pieces thrifting, especially if you don’t mind it not being 100% identical to the original costume.

One thing to consider about DIY, is that unless you buy every material and design everything from scratch, it’s not going to be a perfect match. Luckily, the whole concept of the show is about variants. So you can easily put your own spin on the costume and design, and it will still read fine. In fact, that is exactly what I did.

Where to Buy Sylvie Horns

Sylvie horns

These are the Sylvie horns I ordered for my costume. This broken horn headband is awesome, especially for such a great price! They are shiny and very detailed. They almost look like real metal. But they are actually made out of a flexible plastic. So they are super comfortable to wear and looking amazing at the same time. I plan on wearing these to Disneyland in the future and hopefully to Comic Con. I highly recommend them as they are comfortable and have definitely held up with multiple wears for me.

The Best Sylvie Corset

Sylvie has an iconic dark green, gold, and black corset that she pairs with baggy black pants and combat boots. But since it is so specific, it’s hard to find an exact match. Personally, I decided to go with a black corset dress with gold threading that I already had. You’ll just need a corset type top with gold accents. Here are a few great options that you can order from Amazon:

Sylvie wears a high-necked, long-sleeve, black shirt underneath her corset. This may be something you already have at home. But you want it to be relatively tight, so here are some options if you don’t have one already.

Pants For Sylvie Costume

For my version of the costume, I wore a short dress with tights. In the show, Sylvie wears pants sort of like these:

Best bet is combat boots, but black tennis shoes would also work great. It just depends on what your using this costume for. If you are assembling this costume for cosplay or Comicon, I recommend getting some sleek black boots to complete the look. 

If you want an elevated look, add a heeled boot! I used the booties from Journee Collection and they are absolutely gorgeous. They are patent leather and shiny and so cute! I plan on wearing these all Fall and winter!

sylvie cloak

One of the hardest things to find online is a cloak that looks similar and is decent quality. The main problem I was having was finding something that wasn’t shiny or neon green. But as I was searching to make my costume, I had the idea to get a Slytherin robe and alter it. 

I found this amazon knockoff “magician themed cloak” that is great quality for only 23 dollars. It is a little short, but Sylvie’s cloak is short so it worked great for the project. 

The alterations I made were getting rid of the tip of the wizard hood, removing the buttons and fastener, and I took the hem on the sides up a bit to give it more of a V-shape like hers. It only took me a couple of hours and the result is great!

Sylvie Costume Accessories

Sylvie also wears fingerless gloves, so I got these shiny ones and they were really comfortable and looked awesome. They also come in a lot of different sizes, so as someone with small hands, these were perfect.

This is totally optional, but I also got a wig to really sell the character. I spent some time styling it and I think it looks great!
