“We had creative meetings with the director of photography, [director] Taika [Waititi], our producers, the creators, visual development, production designers, set decoration, hair and makeup … when I create a look, I create that whole, cohesive look. It has to be exactly the same DNA, and the only way to get that DNA is through communication,” says costume designer Mayes Rubeo.
Thor: Love and Thunder tells the story of Thor as he embarks upon a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – one of self-discovery. But when Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the extinction of the gods, his efforts are interrupted. Enlisting the help of King Valkyrie, Korg and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster who now wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir.
