With everyone getting their knickers in a twist over Wonder Woman’s costume redesign, it’s only appropriate that this hit the Interwebz.
Back in ancient times, (around 2005 or thereabouts) nerd god Joss Whedon was set to helm a Wonder Woman movie. Flame wars over casting ensued, and it seemed like that was the only thing that got done before Whedon said he wasn’t doing the project anymore two years later.
Well, cats and kittens, that is the beauty on the Internet: Nothing dies. Costume designer Shawna Trpcic, who has worked with Whedon on a number of projects, shared a few sketches of what Wonder Woman might have looked like had the film gotten made.
While I don’t think there’s any way to make a jacket look like a natural part of Wonder Woman’s costume–that’s the part I dislike the most in the new costume–the designs do keep the general size of her chest emblem big enough to recognize, and with the pants–one part I like in the new costume–she would be able to stretch as far as she needed when rescuing people, lifting cars, etc., without worrying that the shorts aren’t revealing her Wonder Woowoo. Plus, Trpcic’s designs keep the classic boot design, but with a little tweak here and there.
What do you think? Yay, nay, or are you sick and tired of hearing about Wonder Woman’s costume?
