Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, has remained a popular Marvel character for quite some time now, especially with her appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, she was one of the main focuses of the recent Disney Plus series WandaVision which premiered earlier this year. As such, it’s a perfect time to look back at one of the more mysterious Scarlet Witch appearances to date. In particular, one woman appeared out of nowhere to show off a rather gorgeous Scarlet Witch cosplay – only to never be seen or heard from since.
As noted via Heavy Metal, the Scarlet Witch cosplay was only worn to the 2012 MegaCon event in Orlando. While pictures of the cosplayer at the event have since gone viral, the woman behind them is still largely unknown. It’s quite the mystery, and it appears to be intentional as she actually doesn’t want to be found. It appears that one of the photographers who snapshotted a few photos of her, MV Partsch, was able to confirm this.
He explained in a Tumblr post:
“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.”
As such, it stands to reason that fans should quit attempting to find her. The woman wants to keep her anonymity, and that’s totally fine. At the very least, she was able to share a stunning Scarlet Witch cosplay with the world before disappearing. The outfit is clearly inspired by Wanda Maximoff’s comic book look, and the only criticism that some fans have had is that she chose to wear a corset with it.
In any case, it goes to show that Scarlet Witch really has been a popular Marvel character over the years. With that said, it’s nice that she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves – especially with an upcoming appearance for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scheduled.
