Genderbent Thulsa Doom Cosplay


Thulsa Doom is a foe of both Kull the conqueror and Conan the Barbarian. The character was played by James Earl Jones in the 1982 film, and Finnish cosplayer Ravenlordess modeled her costume after that iteration of the character. She must have pulled tons of reference photos or screen captures because her costume looks exceptionally detailed and close to the one in the film. She started posting about the project in September of last year and used fake fur, leather, and Worbla to construct it. She crafted everything from scratch except for the wig and boots – those were existing pieces that were modified. She even added the snakeskin print pattern by hand because she couldn’t find proper fabric.

Ravenlordess shared several progress photos on Facebook and had the following notes about the crafting of Thulsa Doom’s cloak:

Thulsa Doom’s cloak is finally done. It took a lot more time than I expected it to take but that seems to be the case with every single piece of this cosplay. The cloak is also one of the biggest mysteries of this outfit because of the lack of reference pictures so I just had to interpret what I thought I was seeing in screenshots. I really like wearing this thing, it’s heavy and warm and moves nicely when I walk.

The majority of the cloak is made of short pile faux fur with faux suede lining to make it look more real and to hide the very distinctive knit that faux furs have on the wrong side. There’s long pile fur and stitches in the seams because I wanted to make it look like the cloak is made of several smaller hides. There’s also long pile fur on the shoulders and the front. I didn’t comb the fur much because I wanted it to keep that rugged look.
