Wonder Woman emerged from the DC Comics Universe, first appearing in 1941, in All Star Comics #8

I wanted to create a Wonder Woman cosplay to celebrate to release of the new movie in 2017

She is one of the most famous female heroines, depicted across many comics, motion pictures and action figures

Background: Before becoming Wonder Woman, she was known as Diana, princess of the Amazons. She was trained to be an unbeatable warrior and became a Goddess and Ambassador

She is also well known for being a founding member of the Justice League

My friend and I recently attended a new spy themed LARP game called; Aces and Operatives!

I was a body guard for the CIA, turned into an Assassin Operative working undercover for the enemy

It was a great excuse to dress up fancy, although I was already sold at the canapes and Poker!

I bought this Grecian style green dress for just £1 at a jumble sale

However, unfortunately it was much too big for me, so I adjusted it to fit me.

Finished adjusted dress

As you can see the dress was about double my size!

I discovered someone had let the dress out previously, using the added gold material at the back

Dress before alteration

I removed the gold added back piece and put darts in fit myself

I then added a zip as I had to remove the previous hook and eye fastenings
