When previews for Thor: Ragnarok first circulated, one of the most talked about characters was Hela, the Goddess of Death. When the movie finally hit theaters, through the incredible fight scenes between Thor and Hulk to the sweet moments they shared that surprised not only themselves but viewers around the world, Hela again stuck out as a front-runner.
There was something about Cate Blanchett’s persona that made you give her all of your attention. It was her fire and her fierceness that captured audiences, even if we hated her for what she’d done to Asgard. However, we can’t dismiss her incredible bodysuits and that killer headdress that were the perfect compliments to the goddess.
Speaking of that headdress, what some people may not know is that the helmet was something that Cate actually wore in some scenes. Yes, there were CG elements but they didn’t want there to be certain scenes or perspectives that didn’t look streamlined. Plus, they wanted her to be able to wear the headdress because, let’s face it, who wouldn’t feel powerful in that thing?
If you’d like to learn more about what work went into making the helmet, and there was a lot of it, watch the video posted by cnet below.
