The Best Scarlet Witch Ever and Nobody Knows her Name

Scarlet Witch Megacon 2012

The mysterious Scarlet Witch from MegaCon 2012. Photographer unknown.

With Avengers: Age of Ultron opening today, we thought it might be a good idea to give a nod to Scarlet.

No, not Scarlett, as in Johansson, who plays Black Widow. We’re talking Scarlet Witch, played in the movie by Elizabeth Olsen. Only we’re not talking Elizabeth Olsen. We don’t know whom we’re talking about—almost nobody does.

The big-time cosplay artists are celebrities in their world—a cosplayer like Yaya Han has tons of fans who go to conventions and line up to take her picture. Cosplayers build their brands and monetize them when possible. But back in 2012 a remarkable cosplayer showed up at MegaCon in Orlando and basically “won” it without anyone knowing who she was. Find her pictures on message boards, DeviantArt, Facebook, Flickr, and you will find comments to that effect: Best cosplay at MegaCon 2012. And only at MegaCon 2012. Nobody had seen her before, and nobody has seen her since.

You will also find: What is her name? Does she have a Facebook? Why can’t I find anything about her anywhere?

You can’t because you can’t—because she doesn’t want to be found. Cosplay photographer MV Partsch (americancomicon.tumblr.com), who got some of the best snaps of her, said this on Tumblr after being asked for the zillionth time:

I saw that you wondered who she was. For the record, she really likes to remain anonymous, but I can tell you that she is incredibly nice, very very patient, has a good sense of humor, and is obviously extremely talented.

There you go. And as much as you might enjoy the pictures, which will be on the internet forever, please let her remain anonymous. She doesn’t want to be found. (Don’t get weird on us, ok?)

A word about her waist, which freaks some people out: It’s corseted. In some shots you can see the outline of the corset. The corset, as a garment, has a terrible history, and nobody should be forced to wear one, or made to feel she needs to. But there are women, models and fetishists, who willingly wear them. For those who find this Witch’s wasp-waist distracting or disturbing, you’re not alone—many people felt that she would have been even better with a more natural looking waist. But she is what she is. Was what she was. Gone, but not forgotten.

    Whoever she may be, she did a terrific job. Hope she decides to check out NY sometime…

    I actually met her a few months ago. She hasn't cosplayed since and does not use social media at all. I told her everyone wanted to know her name and she had no idea about all the hoopla. She was very nice and really fun to talk to' Hopefully she will start cosplaying again soon.

  3. I rember her from MegaCon 2012. Took a pic with her while I was dressed as Hawkeye.

  8. Don says:

    The best part about this costume is that it had a working “Scarlet Witch Hex Power”! I guarantee that while she was around guys walked into telephone poles and fire hydrants, fell down stairs and choked on their drinks!
