How to make a Thor costume

Thor is a god that was worshipped by ancient Scandinavians. Thor's muscular physique makes this Halloween costume a great choice for anyone with large muscles. Create fake muscles if your arms are anything less than a professional wrestler's muscles. Make a costume as simple or elaborate as your budget and time constraints allow.

Skill level:

  • Brown or dark red sheet
  • Scissors
  • Very thick gold belt
  • Cardboard

  • Large, light weight hammer or foam

  1. 1

    Dye your hair fiery red, or purchase a red wig from a costume shop. Look for a red wig that is shoulder length and wavy.

  2. 2

    Use a brown or dark red sheet to make a knee-length cloak. Cut a hole in the center of the sheet to poke your head through. Wrap the sheet around your waist and secure it with a thick gold belt. Cut the sheet so that it hits just above your knee caps.

  3. 3

    Cut our a large lightning bolt from a sturdy piece of cardboard. Paint the lightning bolt gold. Secure the bolt to the Halloween costume by slipping it under the belt at the waist.

  4. 4

    Purchase a large, light weight plastic hammer. Make a hammer from lightweight foam if you cannot buy one that is light enough to carry around for the evening. Paint the homemade hammer black or dark gray.

  5. 5

    Use a loud, roaring voice every time you speak throughout the evening. Speak in as low of a voice as you can. Demand respect from those around you; after all, you are a god.
