Yay! Today we have another cool Cosplayer :3 We hope you’ll like her too!
Khaleesi: Where are you from?
Tiny Tyrant: Chicago.
K: Why did you start Cosplaying as Loki?
TT: I actually began with Kid Loki from Journey Into Mystery/Young Avengers because I loved his character so much. I had also been encouraged to cosplay as Loki before maybe more as a joke anyway because I already naturally have the green eyes and black hair.
K: Do you role play with other cosplayers? If so, what has been the prefered scene? (from the film or invented)
TT: I do, and now that I have more of a variety between my Kid Loki, Stuttgart Loki and soon AOA Loki and Siege I get to experience more of the similarities and differences of each of them. With Stuttgart a favorite is to order people to kneel, of course. I have done a few panel appearances so interacting with the audience is so much fun especially in character.
Kid Loki also has been in panels and the best thing with that is that he’s so friendly that it can be easier to ad lib more and interact more. Once I sat in an audience member’s lap, it works because I’m fairly small, and stole their chips. The panel lead told me to go sit down, I stood up and yelled “I do what I want!” and then she bribed me with a milk shake.
With both it’s always improv.
For AOA and Siege loki I am roleplaying them in an ongoing text based story to get a feel for them before I “play” them in cosplay. I also spend time practicing how I’d imagine their voices to be if it’s not from the movie.
K: Did you create any part of your outfit?
TT: I am only 6 months or so back into the cosplay community after a long hiatus. Time has been a bit of an issue so unfortunately no, not yet except for modifications to Kid Loki. However I plan to make Siege myself with the exception of his helmet.
Commissions regardless if the entire costume or a prop give me a chance to do my cosplay and performing while showcasing someone else’s excellent work and I am always careful to give credit where it’s due!
K: Do you cosplay just as Loki or also as Kid Loki, or Lady Loki?
TT: I do Kid Loki and will do AoA and Siege. I guess you could say I am more of a comic book Loki cosplayer than movie verse.
K: What is your goal?
TT: Have fun mostly and learn while doing so. I have been given many opportunities at cons and outside of cons to just show up and perform. I love panels and meeting new people.
I also want to hone my skills in sewing and crafting so I can showcase my own work in addition to the commissioned pieces in my cosplay wardrobe. I love doing FX makeup, something that can be seen on my cosplay page actually, it’s a great challenge.
K: Which is your favorite picture that you’ve been taken so far?
TT: Stuttgart Loki in the falling snow, pointing his staff. It’s so well done and the photographer, Kersten (AlliedKersten on tumblr) is wonderful.
K: Which is your favorite Loki sentence?
TT: “Damn me, damn you all.”
K: Have you ever Loki’d someone? How?
TT: Every day, my friends are patient people who put up with me.
But my favorite example would be when a good friend of mine thought I was messing with her when I wasn’t and it slowly turned into me messing with her. It’s now a reoccurring theme within our daily discussions.
