Skurge from Thor: Ragnarok

Skurge is a character you both love to hate and hate to love. In Thor: Ragnarok, he quickly abandons his people to serve Hela on her return to Asgard. But in the end he throws himself to battle against her, trying to right the wrongs of his previous choices. Of course it might just be Karl Urban’s portrayal that gives Skurge the humorous charm he seems to have. But you be the judge of that!

Skurge’s costume is exclusively comprised of a complex set of armor. The one listed above is from another movie but looks very similar. If you add in a bald cap, face paint to recreate his tattoos, a fake goatee, and a sword, you’re ready to defend Asgard!

Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok

Valkyrie is a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Played by Tessa Thompson, she first appears in Thor: Ragnarok. Her actual name is Brunnhilde, though she goes by Valkyrie because she was part of a group of Asgardian warriors called the Valkyries. Before selling Thor to the Grandmaster, she was a bounty hunter on the planet Skaar named Scrapper 142. She befriends Thor and Bruce Banner, ultimately joining the Revengers to defeat Hela. In Avengers: Endgame, Valkyrie survived the snap and helped relocate the Asgardians. Later on she led the Asgardians in the battle against Thanos. Thor then appointed her as the new leader and king of Asgard. To achieve her look from Thor: Ragnarok, style your hair into a half updo top knot. With the NYX White Eyeliner, draw the lines around her eyes, and use this close up picture for reference.

Frigga from the MCU

Frigga

Frigga (played by Rene Russo) is the Queen of Asgard, wife of Odin, and mother to both Thor and Loki in the MCU. Though she largely keeps her peace she knows how to stand her ground. And she is not someone you want to make an enemy of. She is a fierce protector and even fiercer fighter, gifts she passed on to her sons.

Cosplaying as Frigga requires a little bit of DIY. Shoulder and wrist protection is hard to find in gold, as Frigga’s are. So you will have to buy them in leather and paint them with the leather paint pictured above.

Once dry these pieces are layers over a long gown. A gold corset takes the place of Frigga’s chest armor in this look because formed armor like hers always costs quite a bit. There are options available on Etsy but they cost several hundred dollars. This corset will get close to the look at a much more affordable price. Similarly the pictured boots might seem familiar to Disney fans but they work just as well for a Queen of Asgard s a princess of Arendelle if you want something with a heel low enough to fight in that won’t break the bank.

Finally add in a long curly blonde wig, a gold crown, and two short swords and you’re ready to defend Asgard. And, more importantly, your family just like Frigga!

Loki from the Disney+ “Loki” Exclusive Clip

Everyone loves Loki, so no wonder he’s getting his own self-titled series on Disney+. Slated for a release in May 2021, Tom Hiddleston returns as our favorite god of mischief for a six episode season. It follows what happens after he escaped with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. The new clip dropped last Thursday along with the “WandaVision,” “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” and “What If?” trailers respectively. In addition, Marvel revealed the logos to more upcoming shows and movies. We know how quick cosplayers are to assemble the latest designs, so consider yourself taken care of with this costume guide.

Loki

Loki

Loki is a recurring antagonist from the Marvel movies and comic books. His persona was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, but he originates from Norse mythology as the god of trickery and mischief. He is the adoptive son of Odin and brother of Thor. In contrast to his brother’s outgoing personality, Loki is reserved, yet he is also sly and deceitful. He usurps power for his personal gain to rule over Earth, driven by spite and jealousy of his father’s favoritism for Thor. He made his cinematic debut in Thor (2011), where he was portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

Drunk Thor from Avengers: Endgame

Drunk Thor in Avengers: Endgame

In Avengers: Endgame, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is now an overweight alcoholic who leaves in seclusion in New Asgard, Norway. Depressed after the Avengers’ defeat at the hand of Thanos, who has wiped out half of civilization, he spends his days drinking beer and playing Fortnite. The Norse god of Thunder, now drunk and overweight, bears a striking resemblance to The Dude from Big Lebowski, both in appearance and lifestyle.

Hela Odinsdottir

As the secret eldest child of Odin, and sister to Thor and Loki, Hela (Cate Blanchett) was the Asgardian Goddess of Death and former Executioner. After gaining too much power, her father defeated her in battle and sent her to be imprisoned in Hel for millenia. At Odin’s death, the power that held her captive faded and she was able to escape and exact her revenge. She is the villain of Thor: Ragnarok.

Dawson

In Adventures in Babysitting, Dawson (Vincent D’Onofrio) is a mechanic who looks a lot like Thor, and not only to Sara, who idolizes the Norse superhero. He may even be the Norse superhero. But that doesn’t mean he’ll give you a $5 discount on your car repair.

Sara Anderson

In Adventures of Babysitting, Sara Anderson (Maia Brewton) is a 10-year old girl with an extreme obsession with Thor. She even wears a Thor helmet and carries around a toy hammer. When she sees a car mechanic named Dawson wielding a sledgehammer, she bows down to him as if he were the Norse god.

Thor

In the Marvel comics, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is the Norse god of thunder and a founding member of the Avengers. As if being a god wasn’t enough, he has an enchanted hammer called Mjolnir that allows him to fly and control the weather.
