Female Thor

This cosplay was inspired by Lori Bloom a.k.a Miss Pirate Savvy. Initially, my sister and I planned to cosplay at our first con as gender-bent versions of Thor and Loki, but with time restrictions, my sister had to bow out of the duo. Thankfully, I found Miss Bloom’s Youtube Channel, which made my first cosplay relatively easily, while still managing to stand out. I absolutely loved making it, and it propelled my love for cosplaying.

Kids asking to take pictures with me was absolutely the best part. At first I didn’t know how to respond as moms called out, “Thor! My son wants a picture with you.” Thor? Moi? Still, it was amazing that my simple pleather pants, tube top, and craft foam appealed to the childrens’ imaginations.

This is also where I first learned about extraordinary cosplayers, such as #IvyDoomkitty. Props to her for being such an inspirational leader.

A breakdown on where I got my material:

  • Cape: 2 yards silk material found at Micahels. I cut it in half and ammature-ly glued the edges together (I still have to work on my sewing capabilities).
  • Pleather pants: Target
  • Boots: I’ve this pair for years. I call them my “badass boots” and I got them from a store called Traffic.
  • Tube Top: Charlotte Russe, maybe?
  • Hammer: Party City
  • Armor: Craft foam is from Walmart. The spray paint and Modge Podge I used to cover it is from there as well (see DIY Crafts). The accent black paint is from Michaels!
