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
Gold, red and blue dress
Red long boots and gold leg guards
Gold head band, arm band and choker
Silver arm guards
Gold lasso of truth
For my costume I took inspiration from all the best Wonder Woman versions. Including the 2017 movie, Diana of Paradise Island TV Series, ad Justice Leagues Wonder Woman animated universe. As well as other comic books she has starred in.
From the new Star Wars movie: The Force Awakens (2015)
I wanted to cosplay Rey because she is an independent, intelligent and brave woman
I cosplayed at MCM Comicon on Sunday
Sand coloured base clothes
Long muslin body wrap
Arm and leg banages
Brown leather wrist cuff
Hair in three buns
How to guide:
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.
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.
