THOR 🔨: The Dark World (swipe for more)
WARRIOR 👊🏼: Here's the final concept design for Thor in the second film. I loved designing this suit for him the most (out of all his versions)-- mostly because I innately see him more as a warrior than a superhero, and going more warrior was one of the goals for the film. I was able to revisit some earlier design themes that I began with when I first saw down to design his costume for the first Thor film. The thematic words I used are: Regal, Power, Mythical
CHARACTER ARC📈: Thor had already been exhiled to earth and sacrificed to redeem himself. So, it seemed to make sense to have this version of him a bit more mature in his costume design than in the first film.
MATERIAL & FABRIC 🧥:
After my team (Visual Development) finished with designs, they were given to the costume department.
Wendy Partiridge (costume designer) and I worked closely on choosing fabric/materials and re-establishing the designs on the actors' bodies for this film. Some of my most memorable experiences are from this show. It was an honor to work with such incredible craftspeople in sculpting and stitching the costumes togeher--wish I'd documented all of it to share with you guys!🙌🏼
