Hi, gang! Hope I'm not too late to bring photos!
It's weird that I recognize some of you. I know I saw 13_lucky_charms and heather4eva06. I know I have a picture of a Friday Pepper at the shoot, screamedwhisper, and a Scarlet Witch in the shoot, moonlight876. You were all amazing! It was so cool to see all the awesome work you guys put into your cosplays!
I was one of the 20382038 fem Lokis (I was the one with the dark hair, horns, and cape. You know, like all of them...), and I understand many of your frustrations. Trust me, I wasn't happy with the number of Fem!Lokis either, as well as the attitude of a few, though I will say the majority of the Lokis I spoke with were really friendly and we had fun chats about how we made our costumes. Sorry to whoever got shoved into the fountain; I hope it wasn't me! If I was ever rude, I do apologize. It might have been the stress of the convention/photoshoots getting to me. No one deserves that.
I decided a while ago to cosplay as Loki because my friend decided to be Fem!Thor with me (she was at the Friday shoot), and we worked on our cosplays together in a sort of fandom-fre bubble, so I was pretty shocked to see a million other gold horns in the crowd. I genuinely neglected how crazy the Loki fanbase is on tumblr, so it didn't even hit me that everyone and their aunt would be Loki'ing too. I'd love to do Loki again at another con, but I feel like it might be too played out already >.< oy. My sympathies, assorted Marvel characters. Me and my genderbent Thor understand
Like a bunch of you, I was pretty appalled by the management of the photo shoot, for many of the stated reasons. The early starts from the scheduled time was pretty frustrating, as I was always early yet somehow late. I was also pretty upset that I couldn't work through the crowd to even get a couple of individual shots of some of the extraordinary people there. Nevertheless, I was able to get some shots from Friday and my boyfriend helped me get the group shots Saturday.
If there are future Marvel photoshoots, I'd love to participate. I'll probably work on something BESIDES Loki, but it was really great to see all of you and meet some of you. Marvel fans are the coolest!
TL;DR Here's the album for the shoots (though they might be out of order; thank you iPhoto uploader) and misc. Marvel people I encountered at Otakon:
(the adorable Coulson who asked for autographs is a good friend of mine, hence the glompage)
And for the curious folk, here's my general Otakon Album:
Again, photos might be jumbled but I'll work on that.
