alter ego: Lady Loki

After lurking about the alternative curves FB page, I am finally joining in the blog hop! (May and June's themes were right up my alley, but as you may have noticed from my lack of updates here during those months, I just didn't have time). July is alter ego, and it seemed to me that Lady Loki would be a perfect fit! Those who know me know I have a deep love for Loki. Both Marvel canon and Norse mythology.
I've had the great pleasure of getting to portray Lady Loki in burlesques show across Southern California. And before anyone gets persnickety with "waaaah- don't gender-bend in cosplay... blah blah blah. You aren't a real nerd. blah blah blah", I'd like to let you know Lady Loki is comic book canon. So there. I recently got to do a photo shoot with the lovely Sharon Kelly (who is a dear friend, and my Thor). There were quite a few amazing shots that came out of this shoot, but my all time favorite this one. I was lucky enough to be the 97th Peepshow Menagerie pinup for their Marvel's of Burlesque show (one of my favorites!). Producer Chris Beyond used some of his graphic designer magic to make the faux comic cover pin up. I just love it! 

I made the costume myself, including the slightly wonky horns. I hope to be upgrading them shortly. But I must say, they aren't so bad for being made out of a .99cent store pool floaty! 

I also recently got the chance to model for Titmouse in Hollywood. Look at this amazing drawing by Joey McInnis. I was just blown away by his work. Check out more of it here

  1. This is wonderful! I love it so much! You done such a great job with the horns! Loki is just too good and Lady Loki is even better! :D

    1. Thank you! The horns were sooooo much trial and error (mostly error!). In the end it was mostly dollar store magic, pool floaties and cheap garden wire!
