Trivia: Did you know…that Wonder Woman is worthy of wielding Thor’s hammer?
Wonder Woman sparked a global discussion. Why is this such a big deal? Well, not only was it the first Wonder Woman movie, it was also the first superhero movie with a female lead—Gal Gadot—and the first major superhero movie to have a female director—Patty Jenkins. Show your love for Wonder Woman with a Wonder Woman costume!
Similar, but not identical to Wonder Woman’s outfit in the comics, the Wonder Woman costume in the movie also sparked controversy. Director Patty Jenkins explained her choices by saying: “When people get super critical about her outfit, who’s the one getting crazy about what a woman wears? That’s who she is; that’s Wonder Woman. I want her to look like my childhood fantasy (…) So let her be the every glorious thing that she is. Including hot and beautiful and sexy and loving and great and kind.”
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume consists of a metallic version of the traditional red corset and blue skirt, with the classic Wonder Woman tiara and armbands. While some have complained that her costume is “skimpy,” Diana is always seen as a real person, not as an object. Are you inspired by the movie’s costumes?

A picture is worth a thousand words: if this fierce Wonder Woman cosplay doesn’t inspire you to dress up as Wonder Woman, I don’t know what will. The cosplayer’s bold pose and facial expression really help the look come together, and, while she chose to wear pants rather than a skirt, every other part of the outfit—from the cuffs and the lasso to the boots and the red corset—is taken straight from the movie.
