At this year’s DesignerCon, we meet up with Ironhead Studio, the costume and prop fabricators who made Hela’s jaw-dropping costume from Thor: Ragnarok. Jose Fernandez walks us through how his team made Hela’s iconic headdress for Cate Blanchett to wear in the film, explaining how the helmet’s pieces hold together and what goes into its brilliant finish.

Thanks for watching!



  1. This helmet could so easily have looked utterly ridiculous, but the quality of construction is amazing. And Cate Blanchett looks totally badass in the full Hela costume.

  2. Interesting that most of the time it was CGI. Almost every scene where she was wearing it I couldn't help but think how much stress it had to be on her neck to wear it and move around.

  3. Thanks for the video, its a great head piece. Although a little bit of click bait with the "Making of" compared to your usual content.

  4. If any of you guys have paid attention to Norse mythology, Loki had every right to fuck everyone over. After what they did to him

  5. Jose: "Marvel was involved heavily in the minutiae…" Translation: "Some cocksucker with no talent making 10 times what I do was constantly up my ass, second guessing me."

  6. I love Cate Blanchett. I think she’s beautiful and a very talented actress, but she looks ridiculous in this costume. The whole thing is just a mess. They could’ve come up with something better.

  7. Excellent, I found a coupon FWSPMIA for a secret discount of $ 90 for any smartphones, computers and components in a store with worldwide delivery (computeruniverse .net)
