Marvel’s Thor comic relaunched about six months ago with a female lead. Thor is now a Goddess of Thunder. The book is selling well; the fifth issue was the 11th best-selling comic in February. Let’s celebrate the high number of sales by looking at a Thor costume. This one by Kayley Marie Cosplay is a femme take on the male Thor and was inspired by the character’s look in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She paired that costume with 1940s flair and inspiration from the classic Thor comics. She explains:
I included key elements that were identifiable as Thor but were feminine, such as the classic blonde hair, makeup that read as “strong and beautiful”, and one of my favorite touches–electric blue contact lenses complete with Nordic designs.
Kayley Marie built the armor, helmet, and Mjölnir from the ground up. The armor and helmet started as paper patterns and were then made from craft foam. She did a wonderful job of sealing the foam and painting it with a faux metal finish. Her take on Thor’s hammer started life as a block of foam.
