To me, it seems like he’s completely relaxed since Philly and happily, seems suddenly comfortable being himself. I’m wondering if Philly was the first time he saw that VOLUME of fans pretty much there for him and Mackie and praising him so much and so many people just enamored with Bucky. I just remember him making the comment before all this that he was always surprised when people even recognized him. And suddenly he’s in front of huge crowd at rock star status. And people were repeatedly reinforcing that we’re charmed by him being a dork. And he’s signing innocently ridiculous stuff and people have tattoos and are requesting dorky poses.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that he’s suddenly seeming much more comfortable just being himself. He’s getting reinforcement that people not only are okay with that, but they like it. He’s also taken an interesting attitude to fandom in that I don’t get a vibe from him that he’s uncomfortable with people dressing up or getting tattoos or feeling comics are important like some actors give off. So yeah, I think it’s not so much an attitude change as it is he’s being himself.
