Loki’s wardrobe appreciation.
This is honestly, one of my favourite posts.
#Can I have like a ten minute short about ‘A Day in the Life of Heimdall’ #and it’s just tranquil shots of Heimdall chillin’ on the Bifrost #in between lots of ass kicking #and single handedly fighting off like alien invasions trying to get past him #and then odin can roll up and be like ‘Hey heimdall anything interesting happen today?’ #and then in that really calm voice Heimdall’d just say ‘Not particularly my leige.’
Heimdal is the agent coulson of asgard
I really enjoyed Loki’s armour because it was so clearly ceremonial. This does not look to me like working armour. Thor, Sif (Thor’s female friend) and the Warriors Three all had comparatively functional armour, but Loki’s armour fails to cover his legs, a bunch of his torso, and his throat. Loki’s not a warrior. In fact, there’s a very obvious brains/brawn delineation between Loki and Thor from the very first scenes in Asgard, as I recall. I suspect that Loki is the Asgardian equivalent of a nerd, and he mostly seems to rely on his wit and magical powers to win fights. In pre-prodution his Asgardian costume looked a bit more melodramatic, but I prefer what they went with in the end (plus it’s far more suited to Tom Hiddleston’s slim figure).
