It's been forever since I updated my DA portfolio, and a handful of costumes are missing entirely. I'm too excited about this cosplay to wait until I've properly updated, however.
I can’t believe the stars aligned and I finished this costume in time to debut at SOFA 2012 in Bogota, Colombia.
Inspired by an original design artist Tess Fowler and I collaborated on, the concept draws from several iterations of Wonder Woman throughout the years, peppered with original elements. While I adore Linda Carter’s version of Wonder Woman (“In your satin tights, fighting for your rights!”), I’ve always preferred the first lady of comics as a warrior. An Amazon. A total BAMF. We’ll debut the full illustration at a later date!
I’ll also put together extensive build notes and credits soon, but a huge shout out goes to Thomas Ignatius, who’s been my leatherworking mentor over the last few months. I constructed all of the costume (armor, props, skirt, belt, and so on) aside from the corset. Having never made one this complex, Tom and I knocked out the corset over a very long day, with me playing assistant. His incredible skill with leather shines through in the shape and fit of it. Perfect. I then took the corset home detailed it with the eagle crest, rivets, and dirt/blood.
Hello how are you? I am Raissa, Digital Artist, and saw their cosplay Wonder Woman and charmed me with their style, and ended up producing a photo project handling one of your photos. Congratulations for your work. The result is here: 500px.com/photo/132475603/wond…
Wow. This isn't just the best WW display I've ever seen, it's the best WW costume! Vastly superior to anything in the comics or tv. Sadly I'm sure that if/when we get a WW movie, it won't be as good as this. Also, you look 100% perfect in the role too!
Other than the fact that the sword looks obviously dull, this is truly amazing. This has got to be the best WW cosplay I've ever seen. To be honest, Wonder Woman is particularly difficult to pull off, and very few do. Although maybe my standards are just high. The woman has to be gorgeous (as in beautiful with class), sexy (as in attractive and curvy, but without looking like she stepped out of a porno), striking (as in the first two qualities, but with her own unique eye-catching appearance), and last but not least: strong. I particularly liked your comment about WW being an Amazon. She's a warrior born, bred, and raised; and that gets forgotten too much, even by DC. Finally, the armor has to convince me that an ancient Greek warrior might wear it (even if a magical warrior). Frankly, you and Tess Fowler hit all the marks and pulled it all off with flying colors.
