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

How to guide:

Costume:

I bought a 4m length of cream coloured muslin. I cut two strips length ways, 1-2 inches wide, for the arm bandages. I then cut the remaining material in half and sewed the short ends together on one side, to make one long piece of material for the body wrap.

Rey’s staff:

I bought a 2m wooden pole, and attached different bottles, aluminum cans and plastic packaging to create the different shapes. Using papier-mâché and glue to create the structure. I then painted it using black, silver and bronze paint to create a metal effect. Lastly, I glued different types of muslin material for the handle.

The last Air Bender is one of my favourite Anime Cartoons, as it combines a good story line with humour and diverse charecters
