Wonder Woman is a hard costume to pull off. Usually, one of three things happens:
- You look like a dumb cunt, a la Kim Kardashian, who has no idea what she’s doing.
- You look like a man in a speedo.
- You look like you purchased the cheapest costume from the Halloween store.
I love browsing for Wonder Woman cosplay, not because I simply want to make fun of these women, but because I love when I see someone get it right. You see, Wonder Woman is all women, but she’s also strong. She’s untouchable but human. She’s sexy but capable. She’s not an easy cosplay, which is why these four women stand out for their successes.
Donna Troy depicts a Wonder Woman who feels a little more battle-ready. She’s got a feminine and somewhat-naive look, but she never fails at seeming ready for the good fiht in her armor. Her eyelashes are gorgeous, too.
Adam Jay takes fantastic superhero photography, including en entire shoot with Sarah Scott. She tries on both Wonder Woman’s skirt and slacks, and the DIY job is fantastic. The costume itself evokes the sexiness and power of Wonder Woman almost as much as Sarah’s face in this shot.
While her costume is a bit more pedestian, the expression in this photo more than makes up for it. Valerie participated on Wonder Woman Day 2008. Why didn’t I know about this holiday?
The cosplayer in this photo is unknown. Again, the costume is a little lackluster, but her hair and expression are perfect. This is as close as you get to an Amazonian warrior in my book. Plus, the photo has great lighting, which adds a vintage touch to it. I can imagine this woman as the Wonder Woman in a Silver-era television show.
Who’s your favorite Wonder Woman?
