Costume Porn – Thor: The Dark World

There’s always a creative element for every film you do, but not to this massive extent, where you have multiple worlds, so many personalities and such a diverse cross-section of creative looks needed. – Wendy Partridge

thor06The second installment of Thor is finally here! Thor is my favorite Marvel movie and I am excited for The Dark World. The costumes are designed by Wendy Partridge who has also designed costumes for Hellboy, Blade, and Underworld. She has been nominated for several awards and won two Genie awards. Working with the head of Marvel’s visual development Charlie Wen, Partridge set out to create a look suitable for the Asgardian Gods while also maintaining a sense of vulnerability and humanity. Partridge said that there was extensive research that went into bringing these comic book born garbs to the big screen. She researched Celtic history from three to four thousand years ago and incorporated the circular motifs that seemed ever present in the artwork.

For the look of Thor, Partridge says: “Thor has his signature look, and for this we introduced a seamless, dark blue leather, casual cape. It’s cut very simply, but it drapes beautifully, so when he’s hanging out with the boys he has all of his Thor amour underneath, but he just has this beautiful, draped leather that is elegantly simple.”

Now, feast your eyes on the gorgeous costumes of Thor: The Dark World.
