Thor’s Arm Blast!

Deciding to cosplay as the God of Thunder was a brave choice as I most certainly do not have the body like Chris Hemsworth. In particular, those arms in Thor: Raganarok were so pumped they looked like they were about to explode! via GIPHY My buddy Francesc had made the most amazing Thor costume that I borrowed for an upcoming photoshoot but I needed the body to match.

Thank you, Stan.

This week, the mighty All-Father of Marvel, the incredible Stan Lee passed away. A stranger to me, yet his ideas helped shape the man I am today.

Tips for Tee-Pump!

Yes spring! Yes sunshine! Yes summer wardrobe! I know, it happened sooner than we all thought, right? All of us being caught out by our mini April heat wave in the UK. I was literally just in my Siberian furs during the snowy ‘Beast of East’ while wondering if I will ever see a blue sky or feel warmth ever again. And I feel unprepared for the sunnier weather as I am NOT ready to take my top off for the summer. So my summer goal is to simply look amazing in a tee. I want my arms on point,…

Spoiler Free Things I learnt from the Avengers: Infinity War London Fan Event.

Directors the Russo Brothers have kept a small crowd of fans wanting MORE after assembling a selection of Avengers and showing 20 whole minutes of Avengers: Infinity War last night at the new and revamped Television Centre – and the reaction was electric. The cast gathered was just a handful of the enormous ensemble: Paul Bettany (The Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Sebastian Stan (Winter Solider), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Letitia Wright (Shuri) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange). Along with the movie’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, the cast attempted to answer some questions that did not give…
