Thor is a very popular superhero and Nordic god, who gained the most popularity through the Avengers series of comics and most recently, the Avengers films. Thor has also gotten his own series of spin off movies, including 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
Thor is a mighty warrior who has control over lightning, and uses his mighty Mjolnir Hammer to strike down his foes. Naturally, such a cool superhero is going to be the thing that many kids want to dress up as for Halloween.
There are many Thor costumes available for both children and adults. In general, Thor’s outfit has remained the same throughout the years. He wears his Nordic armor along with a long red cape attached to his chest plate.
He has shoulder length blond hair, as well as a blond beard. He also has red wrist wraps with gauntlets over them, and wears long black boots. His armor varies between a silver grey and a silver blue color.
Thor also occasionally wears a helmet, but the design varies between iterations. The most recent helmet has flat wings on the side, and some parts covering the cheeks of the wearer. An older version of the helmet has wings flying out of the side with a small spike coming out of the top.
Thor might not be the only character your child wants to dress up as this Halloween. They might like the look of Loki, Thor’s nemesis, more. Loki’s outfit consists of gold and green armor, along with a helmet with massive curved horns on it.
Loki costumes are available for both guys and girls. For kids, the guy’s costumes may come with some extra padding around the shoulders to make it look like you have some extra muscles, or you might find them as normal jumpsuits.
No matter which character you choose to dress up as, you’ll need the right accessories if you want to get the costume just right. If you’re dressing up as Thor, your costume just wouldn’t be complete without Thor’s hammer.
There are plenty of versions of the hammer available from different costume retailers, ranging from ones that are just plastic, to ones that are foam, and even ones that light up and make sounds when you move it.
You might also add Thor’s helmet, because while he didn’t always wear it in the movies, it really completes the look. This also applies to Loki’s helmet, the costume just wouldn’t look right without it.
