As some of you may already know, I am a huge comic book geek, and one of my most favoritest (if not my ultimate favorite) Marvel comic book character has been Thor. So, when, two days ago, I was lucky enough to score a couple of movie passes for an advanced screening of the movie, I was overcome with child-like glee--the kind that leaves you sleepless, uninterested in food, and extremely anxious but also paranoid (OK, maybe that's just me). 

Anyway, when I started blogging, I stumbled upon Betty Felon's tumblr. And I love all her reinterpretations of superhero styles into wearable street wear. Secretly (ok, not really that "secretly"), I longed to be able to put together something like those of her awesome outfits. Given that I had two days notice of the event and a thesis to turn in, I jumped at the opportunity, which I am oh so glad for since my mild depression over the slump of the semester was magically lifted.

So I set off to aSECRET MISSION-- to make a street-wear worthy Thor outfit! I didn't want to have to pay too much for a new outfit, so I got this dress from F21 (which was WAY too big at the top/back, but still worked) for $11. All the rest I had on hand. 

I won't say much about the movie, except that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Apart from being a huge Thor fan, I think Chris Hemsworth is a hunk of hotness. I also love Kenneth Branagh and am in awe of his amazing ability to reinterpret a comic book character, with a lot of continuity behind it, for people to enjoy. Coming from an academic standpoint, this movie really holds dear to my heart (and the months' worth of work I've done with Old English and Anglo-Saxon magic). As a comic book reader, I thought the essentials were taken care of, and that Tom Hiddleston was an amazing, amazing Loki.

  2. Totally cute. Not sure how Thor would be about a HK clip in his hair, but we'll let that one slide ;P

  5. I love you, I love the secret mission, and I love the end result! I always edit them out in blog photos but I have rings of iron crosses and the words "Urd" and "Hel" tattooed on my legs. I figured you of all people might enjoy that.

  20. To be honest, I think I've become weary of all the slew of superhero movies coming out. Don't get me wrong: I loved Iron Man, the new Batman movies, Spiderman (sans #3), etc. But THEN there's Thor, Green Lantern, etc. etc. etc.

    Perhaps I shouldn't be too quick to judge, eh? I mean, I can't write off a film too quickly if it has this scene: http://lawyerupasshole.tumblr.com/post/5132695375

    Also, I'm considering disguise artist as an alternate profession, if not professional crabwalker. :D

  26. This is such a silly awesome outfit :) I don't really read comic books, but I used to read manga back in middle school. I can definitely see how it has influenced me. I still have an undying love for pleated skirts and high knee socks. And I still will always feel like a schoolgirl when I wear either of those things. But I'm okay with that.

    Love the cute little earrings too :)

  28. I'm new to your site and I absolutely njoy all the outfits posted :) I've never been into comic books, but I've had guy friends explain to me who were certain characters and where they were from. To be honest it's quite interesting!

    I think you did a great job on your Thor outfit :)

  43. Dear Blog of Worldly Delights,

    Having now seen Thor I am convinced your outfit is better. No wings anywhere. Oh well. If you like those sort of comics and what not, have you ever read The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan? I adore the books! If you like the fantasy element at all you should check them out.
