Last week, we were graced with the newest entry into the Thor movie franchise, Thor Ragnarok. Since THOR is my favorite MCU franchise because I like mythology and fantasy stories, I was very excited to return to Asgard and the comic book version of all things Norse myth. Maybe even more so this time around because of my travels earlier this year to one of the lands from where these gods once hailed – Iceland.
Skógafoss from the front & 🌈. Bc of the spray, it's not uncommon to see 1 or double 🌈 here! To make things more magical, there's supposedly buried Viking treasure under the falls. . . Legend has it, some men saw a side of the chest under the falls & tried to pull it out. Unfortunately, the chest ring broke off & the chest itself sank further beneath Skógafoss. The ring is now in a museum, but the treasure? Still here to this day! . .

(This is Skógafoss, one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, and it was a filming location for THOR: The Dark World.)
Admittedly, Thor Ragnarok takes us to parts of the 9 Realms that we’ve never seen that look very different from the Scandinavian landscapes we’ve glimpsed before (though, there is a brief stop in Norway), but that’s why movies are their own form of adventure. And for my fave franchise, you bet I came up with a few outfit options. This worked out perfectly because my stylish cohorts at Geeky Fashion Blogger Alliance made this month’s style challenge Thor Ragnarok! As such, I’m splitting my response between this post and one at A Nudge in the Right Direction. Head there next week for 2 more casual Thor-inspired outfits.
Here, I’m sharing what I wore to see the movie last Thorsday at the El Capitan on Hollywood Blvd. For the more glamorous setting and in honor of my favorite trickster (and style inspiration) Loki, I put together something a little extra.
Outfit details: DRESS (Elhofferdesign) // COAT (Forever21- unavailable) // SHOES (Madewell) // EPAULETTES (Elhofferdesign) // NECKLACE (Zara- unavailable) // LIP COLOR (Bite Beauty- custom Bite Beauty Lip Lab)
After wearing the same costume for the last 2 movies he was in, Loki had 4 new outfits in this one! I was especially taken with the yellow cape on his blue costume, which got me to pull my own yellow coat out of the closet. Though Loki is sporting considerably less gold on his clothes this movie, it wouldn’t be a Loki look without being burdened with some glorious hardware.
Bonus look: Sister was going to also wear a Loki shirt, but she found this classic tokidoki x marvel tee from back in the days of the first Thor movie. So she went with this effortlessly cool outfit.
