Thor: Ragnorak’s First Teaser Is Here!

Thor is undoubtedly my favorite Avenger (at least in the MCU–I am a bit more torn in the comics universe). His standalone films haven’t always garnered heaps of fan praise (though I’ll fight anyone who says Kat Dennings isn’t a freaking gem in those movies), but Thor’s latest movie seems like it’s going to be one for the ages. I am so excited for Thor: Ragnorak to hit theaters, and I’ve been hyped up since they first announced it WAY back at the Marvel Event in 2014. Marvel has slowly been releasing images from the film and promotional pieces, and they look AMAZING. Just look at this poster:

I think Ragnorak is going to feel unlike any other Thor film before, and will work nicely into the new look and feel that Marvel is cultivating with Phase III. And while I personally enjoyed the first Thor and Dark World (though I admit that they most certainly had their issues) I think infusing some fresh energy into his films can do nothing but good. Let’s take a look at the teaser trailer that released today!

Obviously, this trailer is teaser and doesn’t give too much away, but we know that Thor has been captured and is forced to become a gladiator (and cut his hair–which some might argue is the real tragedy here). And happily, we find that he’s captured with his ol’ green buddy, Hulk/Bruce Banner–though I’m really curious to see how much Bruce Banner we’ll see and how much of The Other Guy we’ll see in the film as this can’t be a safe environment for Bruce to show his human form–unhappily, they’ve got to fight each other in the ring. Regardless of the outcome of their fight (though my money’s on both of them surviving…because, well, obviously), I absolutely adore Thor’s reaction to seeing the Hulk in the ring. I definitely wanted to cheer alongside of Thor when the Hulk burst onto the scene, but I just died when Thor shouted, “He’s a friend from work!” Classic Thor, and I love that this movie isn’t losing that corny Marvel shtick that makes these heroes lovable (while still portraying them as highly skilled fighters).

Apart from getting a fresh story from one of my faves, there are some amazing new faces entering the MCU. Jeff Goldblum as General Commodus, Cate Blanchett is the utterly badass Hela, and Tessa Thompson is the incredible Valkyrie. We didn’t get too much of Valkyrie in action (though she looks like she’ll be a force to be reckoned with), so I’m excited to see more of her. And Hela…oh man, Hela. I wasn’t sure how Cate Blanchett would do as an MCU baddie, but HOLY CRAP. Hela looks like she’s going to kick some serious ass in this film, and I am READY FOR IT.

As the MCU grows, it can get a bit nerve-wracking that this behemoth of comic book goodness will get too big for Disney and Marvel to handle well. However, I think Phase III has gotten off to a great start, and this new Thor film is going to knock everyone’s socks off. Of course we’ve got to wait quite a while for Thor to hit theaters–November, to be exact. But to slate your Marvel thirst, here are the dates of all of the amazing Marvel stuff coming out between then and now:

Out now: Iron Fist, Netflix
May 5: Guardians of the Galaxy 2, theaters
July 7: Spider-Man: Homecoming, theaters
August 18: Defenders, Netflix

Are you excited about Thor: Ragnorak? What other Phase III properties are you excited to see? Let me know in the comments! 

Please Enjoy theCHIVE’s Secret First Look at Iron Fist

,aIron Fist is set to hit Netflix on March 17! If the waiting for a new Netflix Marvel series is KILLING you, I’ve got some good news. theCHIVE is featuring an exclusive clip on their site. But, because we’re dealing with Danny Rand here, you’ve got to get a bit creative to reach the content.

iron fist.gif

When you get to theCHIVE, you’ve got to enter a secret cheat code (think old-school gaming): Up, Up, Down, Down, left, right, left, right, b,a

Once you do that, you’ll have to break through a brick wall (because Iron Fist, y’all) to access the content. Of course, if you can’t make the cheat code doesn’t work, or you just want to make things easier, you can access the clip by entering “Danny Rand” into theCHIVE’s search bar. Trust me, regardless of how you get there, you’re gonna want to check out this clip. March 17th cannot get here quickly enough!

What did you think of the new clip? Are you excited for Iron Fist, or are you more excited for another Netflix Marvel show to return? How do you think Danny Rand will play into The Defenders? Tell me your thoughts in the comments! 

Marvel Comics Collectors Editions Cell Covers

Guys. I drop my phone. A lot. So when I buy a cell cover, it’s a serious thing for me. The case has to be cute, first, but it also really needs to offer me a bit of protection–namely from accidental droppings and throwings (I once accidentally threw my cell when a wasp got all up in my grill). So when I got the chance to check out one of the Marvel Comics cell covers from SkinIt and Speck. I kinda rolled my eyes. Still, when I took a peek at the cell covers offered, and I had to admit they were kind of awesome.

mcc1

So I thought Sure, I’ll try your little cell cover for a bit, and then I’ll go back to my actual cell cover. I grabbed myself a Thor cover, and popped it on my phone. It was cute, I had to admit it, even in the midst of my skepticism. It also went with just about any outfit.

cell-cover

Not too long after I got the cell cover, I had a medical emergency take over my life (I’m fine). But that meant I was in bed a lot. Which meant my cell phone didn’t get treated as carefully as it should have. It fell between cracks on the couch, it fell off my super tall bed, but the cover kept my phone safe. It’s rubbery with a nice bumper around the screen, so when it fell to the ground, it was protected. Now, yes, this isn’t some magical impenetrable case, but when you’re used to all cute cases offering no phone protection at all, it’s pretty freaking amazing when they do.

marvelcollectorsedition

Regardless of who your fave is, Thor, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, or more, they’ve got a SkinIt cover for you. The designs are exclusively for the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6/6s Plus, and they are a thing of beauty. So check them out today! Not sure which hero you want? Might I try to inspire you with the latest hero to enter the MCU on November 4?

Do you have a SkinIt Marvel Comics cover? Which one is your favorite? Tell me in the comments!

Denver Comic Con 2016: Sunday Panels

Over the weekend of Denver Comic Con 2016, I loved, loved, loved, spending Friday on the exhibition floor and freaking out over my panel, and I loved spending Saturday with the likes of John Barrowman, Cary Elwes, and Hayley Atwell. However, the Sunday panels were hands down my favorites. In DCCs past, Sunday was always more of a slow day to help you wind down from the con craziness. Not this year though. Sunday had people from Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Marvel, Doctor Who, and my favorite internet ladies, The Hillywood Show. It was a great day, but by the end of the day I was EXHAUSTED! Here’s how the day shook out:

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

JDM

I was soooo thrilled to hear that Jeffrey Dean Morgan was coming to Comic Con this year. His appearance was a bit of a late announcement, so it made me even more excited to see him at the con. I didn’t have time to save up to get a photo op with him, unfortunately, but getting to see his panel was treat enough. So what did he have to say about Negan’s role on The Walking Dead? Nothing. He said that he gets to laugh a lot as Negan, which in turn upsets Andrew Lincoln, which makes him laugh more, and he said that waiting for an answer to “who met Lucille” isn’t the worst thing in the world. But apart from telling us how much fun it is to play such a twisted bad guy, we didn’t really learn too much–which is unsurprising. What I really loved was hearing him talk about Supernatural, and his feelings towards Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. He talked about how seeing them “all grown up” made him feel incredibly proud, and he liked to think he had a small part in that–even though he’s only ten years older than Jensen Ackles. He also mentioned that he’d love to come back to the show, especially if it was for the series finale, and if Jensen directed. I’m all for that. He was also asked a question by a girl in genderbent Comedian cosplay, which he thought was so rad that he brought her onstage.

JDM and Comedian

JDM hasn’t been doing the convention circuit for long, but he seemed to be pretty comfortable onstage (his wife–who he met through Jensen Ackles, btw–and adorable son were in the front row, which I’m sure helped him out) and he put on a super fun panel. He was funny, sweet, sincere, and you could tell how much of a genuinely fun time he has working on and talking about the shows he’s a part of. Papa Winchester didn’t disappoint, you guys.

JDM.gif

Of course that was only a fraction of the day. Next, we took things over to the Marvel ‘verse…

Clark Gregg

Clark Gregg

What makes a Clark Gregg panel so fun is how much of a fanboy he is IRL. If you didn’t know, this guy is essentially Coulson himself. He loves comics and the heroes from Marvel just as much (though I don’t think he has vintage cards like Coulson–although Coulson doesn’t even have his cards anymore), and when asked if he was Team Cap or Team Iron Man, he full Coulsoned everyone, calling the question-asker “young lady” and asking how the Sokovia Accords would affect the Inhumans in his charge. It was THE BEST. He also spoke about life after Coulson died in Avengers. He happened to see the #CoulsonLives Twitter campaign while running his wife’s (Jennifer Grey) Twitter while she was on Dancing with the Stars. After that crazy campaign and seeing the Marvel fans flock to bringing Coulson back, we got a living, breathing Coulson and the amazing show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. So can we expect to see him back on the MCU? Or what about his feelings of bringing in some of the other Marvel TV characters into the MCU? Coulson–I mean Clark is game, but he’s okay with waiting. Obviously, he’s got to figure out a gentle way to let the Avengers know he’s still alive. You know, in a way that won’t make any of them so mad they kill him…but more than that he’d love to see the Marvel shows (he named Matt Murdock specifically) mix with the MCU, but in the right way. He thought having some brief, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo wouldn’t be the best, but if they could blend the worlds in a natural and awesome way, he’d love to see that. So we can hope our future will hold some rad crossovers.

Alex Kingston and Jenna Coleman

Alex Kingston and Jenna Coleman

I wasn’t able to stick around for this entire panel, but I did enjoy getting to see these two together. The biggest thing I felt from this panel is that when Jenna originally took the job as Clara on Doctor Who, she had no. idea. how much this would change her life. To this day, I feel like she’s still trying to understand Whovians, convention culture, and why the heck a bunch of randos are paying upwards of a hundred bucks to take a picture with her. Still, it’s obvious she loved the show, the characters, and her fellow actors, which I always love seeing. Alex Kingston, on the other hand, is ALL ABOUT this kinda thing. She totally seemed to feed off the crowd, and was a lot more vocal than Jenna (introvert vs. extrovert, basically). When Jenna asked if she would be coming back to Who–especially after Peter Capaldi made some cryptic remarks about her–she shrugged it off as Peter being Peter and trying to create buzz. She also said that she’d only just left, and Pearl Mackie was starting her run as companion that very day. So even though she seemed to make the answer seem like a solid “no, I’m done”, she never officially said her days in the TARDIS were over. She just didn’t want to take the spotlight from Pearl. Alex Kingston also made some controversial remarks saying that she wasn’t on board with turning the Doctor into a woman in a future regeneration. We’ve seen with two other Gallifreyans that a gender change in a regeneration is possible–The Master/Missy being the most notable–Alex thought that since he’s always been a guy, he should stay that way. I love you, Alex, but we’re gonna have to agree to disagree there.

The Hillywood Show

Hillywood

I actually got to interview Hannah and Hilly (an interview that will be coming out on Geek & Sundry, so stay tuned for that), but I also couldn’t wait to attend their panel. While I’m pretty sure they were in Hilly!Dean and Hannah!Cas cosplay the day before, their Sunday panel was in Dean and Cas casual cosplay (sporting their Hillywood Supernatural parody beanies, obvs). These girls are so sweet and just a ton of fun. They were encouraging to members of the audience who wanted to start their own show on YouTube, and they were so grateful that they had the opportunity to create the show thanks to their Patreon supporters (you can support the show here if you are so inclined). They also watched some of their parodies with the audience, namely their Lord of the Rings Parody, the Walking Dead Parody, the Doctor Who Parody, and their Supernatural Parody.

Hillywood Shake It off.jpg

When I first saw the Supernatural parody, I was by myself and had to fangirl with friends online. So it was really fun to get to watch it in a room FULL of other fans and Hannah and Hilly themselves. Their biggest encouragement to the audience was create something original and don’t try to copy what someone else is doing. You’ll only gain a following and stand out from other YouTubers if you are providing something that only you can give an audience–that’s what people want to see, not a knock-off. These girls are amazing. I was so impressed that they not only did zillions of panels and took the time to not only do photo ops, but they also manned a booth and spent individual time–and the occasional selfie–with each fan who came through to buy some merch.

Of course the unsung hero of the convention is also the lovely Clare Kramer, who was the moderator/interviewer for most of the mainstage panels. She was busy the ENTIRE weekend, and helped make every single panel awesome. I have no idea how she was able to stay energized for it all, but she did a great job. If you haven’t checked out her or GeekNation, you totally should do that. She’s fantastic, and helped make all of the panels amazing. She’s hosted mainstage panels for a while at Denver Comic Con, and I’m always impressed at how she handles the panels–even as they’ve grown significantly over the years. Seriously, Denver Comic Con had record attendance this year, and I know that a huge part of that is because they put on some truly impressive panels. I’m already getting excited for the adventures in store next year!

Have you seen any of these folks at a convention? What question would you like to ask them if you could? Tell me about it in the comments!

Well, That’ll Do: My Winter Soldier Hoodie

Guys. I have a real problem. I’m not sure what it’s called, but it’s somewhere between delusions of grandeur and over committing. Either way, I think I have the time and ability to do all sorts of magical things that I simply do not. Case in point? The Winter Soldier hoodie.

I was certain, absolutely certain that I’d be able to easily re-create a low-key winter soldier hoodie for myself. Did I flake out on the project? No. I made myself a damn hoodie, but it was at quite the personal cost. Here’s what I learned, and I’d like to impart that knowledge on to you.

Don’t Have a Sewing Machine? Rethink Your Lofty Plans…

Guys, sewing something without a sewing machine takes a lot of work. Trying to do something intricate without a sewing machine and solid sewing skills? Yeah, it’s kinda like this:

Cap.gif

The initial tutorial I linked to was fairly straight-forward with very little sewing. Take a gray hoodie arm, sew it onto a black hoodie, and draw on the black marks to make your arm look like Bucky’s. But this girl was like, “That’s too easy! I want it too look ~authentic~”. I decided I would leave the black hoodie arm on and sew on gray strips. It felt more authentic to me, but it really was just a pain in the ass that ended up leading to me drowning about 16 hours into a project that I ultimately scrapped and started from scratch.  If you’re a sub-par seamstress with no equipment, keep it simple, kids. Definitely measure and pin stuff, but keep the end goal easy to achieve.

Know Your Limits, and Bail When You Need To

bucky escape

Like I said, I definitely didn’t give up. I made myself a Winter Soldier hoodie, but after I realize what a dumpster fire my first attempt at a hoodie was, I just left it alone for a while.

Whether or not you need to bail on the project completely is up to you, but don’t be afraid to admit you’ve bitten off more than you can chew, and either scrap the project or just re-imagine it.

Get Advice and Support From Other People

besties.gif

If this is your first time sewing anything more complicated than, hypothetically, ribbons on your pointe shoes, seek out the advice of others who have done this before. Sometimes they’ll freely offer advice, sometimes you’ll have to ask for it, but either way glean as much experiential knowledge as you can. Learning from other people’s mistakes is way easier than learning from your own, right?

Don’t Freak Out If This First Project Knocks You Out Or Isn’t Perfect

black panther kick

I’ll be honest. This project was a lot of work, and the end result…it isn’t perfect, y’all. The red star isn’t centered enough, the stitching isn’t gorgeous, and I sort of lost steam when it came time to adding the lines. It’s just a straight up, two-toned gray arm. But I’m kind of unreasonably proud of it. Yeah, I know it’s not great, and the entire thing was a LOT harder than I expected for a result WAY below what I was hoping. But I did it! I completed a project, as crappy of a final result as it might be. Now I know what I can do better going forward, and I’ll always be able to look back on this first project fondly. Here’s how it turned out (and please enjoy my picture with Bucky-inspired eye makeup).

Winter Soldier Hoodie

So like I said, it isn’t perfect, but I sewed the entire thing by hand, and I’m pretty excited to say that I actually finished a project I wanted to attempt. My next project will be far better, and by then I’ll hopefully have a sewing matching that will keep me from wanting to kill something.

Tell me some of your less-than-perfect cosplay/sewing stories, and feel free to give me any tips and tricks in the comments!

Ways to Deal After the Captain America News

If you haven’t heard the news about the craziness Marvel is pulling with the Captain America comics, check out the write up I did about it over at Nerdist (did I mention I write for Nerdist now, too? Because I totally do…). If you don’t want to hear the big Cap twist, turn back now because I’m about to get into it. Spoilers ahoy, kids.

cap salute

Okay, so by now you’ve likely heard that Captain America is being revealed as a long-standing undercover agent for Hydra. Understandably, the internet is freaking out over Marvel taking the most noble, truly good, and brave character from it’s universe and completely ruining everything that we love about him. Cap has a long and storied history of being one of the few characters who is 100% good. Watching Marvel kind of ruin that legacy by putting him on Team Hydra has been hard to watch for all of us–even Chris Evans himself.

disappointed

Okay, so that wasn’t his actual reaction the Cap/Hydra news… This was Chris’ actual reaction to the complete destruction of the character of the First Avenger:

Of course there are loads of theories on why we don’t need to freak out about this whole Cap/Hydra business, but until reality is restored it’s gonna be tough for those of us on #TeamCap to deal with this heartbreaking reveal. So I’ve got some ways to help you handle Marvel’s decision to remind us all that we just can’t have nice things.

 Deny, Deny, Deny

gollum

Bad Cap can’t get you if you pretend he doesn’t exist…*rocks self and hums quietly*

Say It With Me: Not MY Cap!

Okay, but really, this is the Cap we all know and love, right?

Good Guy Cap

If you don’t even want to mess around with the new Hydra-Cap, and you don’t even want to see how Marvel tries to make this right, then just don’t even buy into it. Stick with MCU Cap and pre-Steve Rogers: Captain America #1 Cap. Sure, you know it exists, but just ignore it. You know, treat Hydra-Cap like an annoying person at a party and pretend to be on your phone when you pass it in the comic book store. That always works.

Re-Join the Hail Hydra Meme Train

Remember the hail Hydra memes that came out after Winter Soldier released?

hail hydra

Super fun, right? Well now that Marvel has cursed us with this abomination:

Captain-America-Hail-Hydra

Image credit: Marvel

…it looks has though the meme has been reborn from the pile of old meme ashes and fan tears. Why not jump on board and channel your rage and heartbreak into internet memes? I’m sure that’s healthy…

Enjoy the New “Let’s Ruin Cap Together” Meme

Since everything we love about Cap is arguably gone (I know, I know, his Hydra stint could be a ca-razzzayyy twist, but for now I’m allowed to feel sad), why not join together as an internet community and ruin Cap in a way that feels more palatable than having him revealed as a member of the group that tortured and brainwashed his best friend? Nothing is more beautiful than watching the internet is fight back to the whole Hydra business by joining hands to ruin him together:

Ultimately, whether it’s denial, ignoring, or humor, we can all get through this Darkest Timeline together. After all, supporting each other when our faves get ruined is what the internet is for, right?

Cap Internet.gif

How are you dealing with the Cap news? What do you think of the Hydra twist? Let’s have a Cap therapy session in the comments! 

The Search for the Perfect Winter Soldier Hoodie

Several months ago, I was sitting in my best friend’s parents house. Captain America: Winter Soldier had just recently come out, and my bestie and I were talking about the movie. Suddenly, she drops a BOMB on me (okay, it wasn’t that dramatic). When I started fangirling over Bucky/Winter Soldier,  she essentially responded like this:

who the hell is bucky.gif

She just didn’t understand how I could care or fangirl over Bucky when Captain America and his Dorito-shaped body were in the same universe. Meanwhile I couldn’t believe how she didn’t love Bucky. I mean, it’s not that I don’t like Cap. I love Cap, I’m unabashedly #TeamCap, and I’ve made the pilgrimage to my local Yankee Candle to check out his candle. But I can’t help it. I love Cap, but I’m a Bucky girl. Maybe it’s because I share his love of red and black, or maybe it’s because we both have a tough time with nailing that smoky eye look…

winter soldier

…whatever it is, he’s my fave, and I’m the type of chick who likes to get swag based on her faves. My extensive collection of Jordandene shirts alone will prove that. While I’ve got a Jordandene tank that has a red star and reads, “I’m with you till the end of the line”, I really wanted to get a Winter Soldier hoodie. You know, a cool-looking hoodie with a silver (or gray) arm that had a red star on the shoulder. Something badass-looking like my Her Universe Black Widow jacket. But in all of my searching, I couldn’t find anything. So I’m left with only one choice: I have to make my own Winter Soldier hoodie. I found a solid tutorial on DeviantArt from Unicat Studio. What is great about this tutorial is that one, the author recognizes that some of us might be terrible at sewing, and that it’s okay. But even better, there are tiers for how complex you want to make your hoodie. Here’s the easy, Level One version of the Winter Soldier hoodie:

winter_soldier_hoodie tutorial easy

Not too bad, right? I feel like this might be the perfect way for me to get my feet wet creating my own everyday cosplay wear (for you ambitious folk, here’s the link again for Unicat Studio’s full tutorial). Since I’m leaning heavily towards wearing outfits around my Jordandene shirts this year at Denver Comic Con, having a hoodie like this would go perfectly with my Till the End of the Line shirt.

What do you think of this tutorial? Have you ever tried to make your own fandom-wear? What tips or tricks do you have for me? Have you seen a Winter Soldier hoodie tutorial that you like more than the one I posted? Tell me about it in the comments! 

#TeamCap Civil War Premiere Outfit

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you’ll know that I am unabashedly #TeamCap for this Civil War business in the MCU.

cap salute.gif

So I want to be sure I show my party alignment when I go and see Captain America: Civil War this weekend. While there’s always options in the everyday cosplay realm (I made a few Civil War everyday cosplay outfits for Geek & Sundry), maybe you want to explore some different ways of expressing your side. Here are some options:

Nails and Makeup

I’ll be honest with you guys. I’m terrible at makeup. I wear as little as possible, and even then I’m pretty sure makeup gurus would tell me I’m applying the stuff wrong. So the thought of doing fancy makeup for a movie premiere makes me a bit itchy (I’ll stick to nails, really). BUT after watching this totally awesome makeup tutorial for Cap makeup, I couldn’t help feel a bit inspired. Her nail choices were also amazing.

Of course, in the video I posted above, she uses gel polish. Here’s a nail tutorial in case you’re not on the gel nails train:

Hair

If you’ve got longer hair, you’re not going to be able (and probably won’t want) to recreate Steve’s hairstyle. While you might be able to swing Bucky’s hair, ever since the whole Winter Soldier thing his hair is more bedhead-chic with an emphasis on bedhead. So instead of trying to copy Cap or Bucky, why not channel a more Peggy Carter-themed hairstyle and don a classic forties ‘do? Here’s a tutorial for some vintage waves:

Outfit

You didn’t think I’d actually leave you without a new everyday cosplay outfit, did you? Of COURSE you can’t go to the premiere in your regular old clothes! With this outfit, there will be no DOUBT that you’re 100% in on #TeamCap

Captain America Everyday Cosplay

Everyday Cosplay: Kilgrave

Yesterday an article I wrote for Geek & Sundry went live where I speculated on what could be next for Jessica Jones in season 2. Because of that, my mind has been on Jessica Jones a lot lately.Since I’ve already done an everyday cosplay look for Jessica over at Geek & Sundry, I decided to make an everyday cosplay look for someone else who’s had their mind on Jessica Jones a lot: Kilgrave.

david tennant kilgrave.gif

Shout out to the show for making a gif of David Tennant saying “I love you” creepy…

Kilgrave is a SUPER scary villain, and one of the things that made him the most creepy to me was the fact that he was WEARING THE TENTH DOCTOR’S FACE.

doctor who sorry.gif

Save it, Ten…

Watching David Tennant use his “Doctor voice” (which, let’s be honest, is just an English accent) and use his gorgeous face to play the most evil villain out there was hella unsettling. But I think that’s what made him such an interesting villain to watch. Fan of Doctor Who or not, you’ve got to admit that David Tennant is kind of a gorgeous man, and he’s got some serious puppy dog eyes. He’s got a face that makes you want to trust him, even though Kilgrave is a complete, evil nutter under that sweet smile. So I wanted to create an everyday cosplay outfit that was equally as sweet and unassuming. You can decide how evil you want to be when you wear it.

Everyday Kilgrave

 

 

Was it creepy for you to watch David Tennant play an evil mastermind like Kilgrave, or did it not bother you? What are you excited to see in season 2 of Jessica Jones? Let’s talk Jessica Jones in the comments! 

Everyday Cosplay: Loki

Who doesn’t love Loki, amirite? He’s one of those great villains who straddles the line between bad guy, a dude who is so wonderfully sassy that you can’t help but love him, and a guy with a tragic backstory that makes you want to love him forever.

LOKI_approves

Loki is the best, and I just love the dynamic he brings to any of the MCU films he’s in as well as any comic he’s in (I really loved his appearance in Ms. Marvel, for instance). So of course I wanted to pull together a look to bring the Trickster into everyday life–especially with comic con coming up, I need to start thinking convention fashion! So here’s a Loki everyday cosplay look, because every day can use a little Loki.
