Need a funny and fast homemade Halloween costume? How about a Fat Thor costume from Avengers Endgame?
Officially we could call it the Bro Thor Costume but everyone I know calls the Endgame Thor, Fat Thor so here it is, the Fat Thor Costume, aka Endgame Thor Costume, aka Bro Thor Costume. 😉
Fat Thor Halloween Costume
There are a couple different Endgame Thor outfits you could use for a Fat Thor costume. When you first see Chris Hemsworth, he is shirtless wearing just fingerless gloves and pajama pants. You could accessorize with a bottle of beer and maybe a camouflage gamer headset. You might want to add a Thor wig and beard.
Endgame Thor Costume
I recruited my brother to wear my Bro Thor costume, so I preferred an Endgame Thor look where he wears a shirt. 😉 This is the same brother who pulled off another silly Thor costume a few years ago.
There are a couple of more iconic Fat Thor looks including one with a light blue hoodie sweatshirt and hooded red tunic. You can buy that hooded Endgame costume online.
The hooded version is doable but seemed a little harder so I went with the Fat Thor at the Avengers Compound. Basically Thor has just put on a shirt and sweater paired with the pajama pants and fingerless gloves he was wearing when we first see him.
Fat Thor Costume Supplies
Most of these things you can find in your closet or borrow from someone. Worst case scenario, you take a trip to a thrift store and a little DIY and you can pull this together fairly quickly. Although if you are missing Fat Thor’s fat, you might want to splurge on a Santa’s belly to wear.
The toughest thing for me to find was a nordic style cardigan. In the end I found a pullover sweater that was mostly the right colors, I think it did the job.
I did have to cut it open to make it a ‘cardigan’ style sweater though. You might get lucky and find the perfect cardigan sweater ready to go.
DIY Endgame Thor Costume
I ended up making a henley shirt by simply adding a couple of buttons to a piece of white fabric and gluing that to a white t-shirt. No one had an old henley shirt, so this seemed like the next best solution.
Fat Thor Costume Accessory
The last DIY was the beer can that Thor had in that scene. Any can of beer (or soda) could work but I wanted a closer match, so I covered the can in duct tape and printed a logo online.
It worked. It’s easy and it didn’t cost much. That is winning in the costume world! If you live in the south, then maybe you can find an actual Creature Comforts can.
Fingerless gloves I had from my Bing Bong costume, and black sunglasses from the dollar store finished off our Fat Thor costume.
Technically if you watch closely, you can see Thor is wearing crocs with this outfit but we skipped them and went with flip flops instead.
Who is Lebowski Thor?
Some people call Thor from Endgame, Lebowski Thor because of his strong resemblance to the Big Lebowski. Tony Stark even calls Thor, Lebowski during Endgame (sort of like how he called Thor ‘Point Break’ in the first Avengers movie).
What is Fat Thor’s official Marvel name?
Marvel has designated Endgame Thor as Bro Thor. I guess because he’s a slacker, gamer, chill out sort of dude who’s given up on life except for beer? I don’t know. He does make for a hilarious character who is afraid of people saying Thanos’ name. 😉
Other Thor Costumes Ideas to Consider
If Fat Thor isn’t the God of Thunder look you are going for then an Infinity War Thor costume might be your best bet. I can’t wait to see what Thor costume inspiration we get from the next Thor movie, Love and Thunder.
