Alexandra Ashe, a Loki fan, has shared her authentic Alligator Loki Cosplay inspired from the Disney+ series. The cosplay has a real snake that bears an amazing resemblance to.
A fan of the Disney+ series Loki posted an authentic cosplay of Alligator Loki, nicknamed Croki, featuring a real alligator.
Alexandra Ashe posted an image of a tiny alligator sporting the gold-horned mask of the Disney+ character Alligator Loki. The alligator’s name is Hendrick and Ashe said that his mouth was closed with tape to ensure everyone’s safety during the photo shoot. But, she assured the followers that the tape wasn’t sealed tightly and was not damaging to Hendrick’s skin.
Ashe is the founder and CEO of Kinkatopia in South Florida, a non profit organization. The photo of the cosplay illustrates Ashe with Hendrick. The organization is primarily the home for 14 Kinkajous. These tiny mammals, often called honey bears are indigenous to tropical rainforests. Kinkatopia strives to provide best possible care for captive kinkajous. Ashe has assisted in rehoming more than 50 species since the establishment of the organization in 2015.
Many of the followers have commented that they liked the alligator variant of Croki. Alligator Loki was first seen in Episode 5 of Loki “Journey Through Mystery” along with other God of Mischief variations from alternate timelines. Croki was joined by Jack Veal’s Kid Loki, a much younger version of Loki who killed Thor in a different timeline, and DeObia’s Boastful Loki was as well to showcase the character’s heightened egotistical aspect. Richard E. Grant was also on hand as Classic Loki. This variant survived Thanosand his attack on the Statesman in Avengers Infinity War.

Alligator Loki is believed to have been relegated to the Void by the Time Variance Authority for eating the cat of a neighbor — a moment that set off a nexus. The variant also comes with that allows it to communicate with other creatures. It’s said that the alligator’s teeth are strong enough to break through the flesh and bones of the Frost Giant.
Despite the alligator’s real-life origin being described by Loki‘s head writer Michael Waldron, another fan of the show has created an illustrated comic with a heartbreaking story for the alternate. The scene is a re-creation of Kenneth Branagh’s 2011 film Thor when Loki’s father Odin admitted that he’d been adopted by Laufey the King of the Frost Giants.
