A couple of weeks ago Marvel announced that the Norse God of thunder and lightning would be forevermore a woman; female Thor cosplayers flocked in celebration of the news for the San Diego Comic-Con. Although some people might mourn the loss of the basis for Chris Hemsworth beloved character, others will revel in the introduction of yet another strong female heroine.

From the iconic red cape and winged helmet to the powerful hammer and metal armor, these female Thor cosplayers went all out for Comic-Con. The tributes were impressive considering that the outfits were put together in such a short time. Unless, of course, some women were putting their own spin on Thor long before the announcement.
