Bombshell Wonder Woman

There was something about the design of this Wonder Woman that caught my attention. She's sexy, but not vulgar and has a kick ass attitude. It also seemed fairly simple, making it a perfect Sunday outfit for a convention.
Official art from DC Comics. 

The head band was just sewed from two pieces on interfaced cotton, with the red star sewed on. The stars are embroidered appliques I found in Japan. 

I had an old red shirt which I never use (expect this one time when i cosplayed Poison Ivy). So I added a white collar and an emblem in front to change it into my wonder woman shirt. 

Emblem was made by sewing red stretch fabric over a yellow felt piece.  

Shorts were sewn from a modified Burda pattern, with zipper in the back.

The belt buckle was laser cut from plywood. Glued together with wood glue, spray painted, airbrushed and highlighted. It is attached to a elastic belt. 

I made a vector file with the pattern for the bracers and then laser cut it into worbla. 

The worbla was wrapped around a foam piece.

Heated to shape

Silver basecoat.

And black acrylic weathering. 

I actually had the perfect shoes for this cosplay, except they were white. I have never tried to dye shoes before and took this as a challenge. My first attempt was with synthetic leather spray color. Too bad one can wasn't enough. Good news, the color held really well once applied. 

I finished the coloring with my airbrush and acrylic paint. The white parts were glued on.  

The final look

  1. Great job on this costume!

    I do wonder though, regarding laser cutting, what kind of equipment is needed? It seems like a godsend for cosplayers but I bet it's something pretty hardcore and/or expensive to actually buy...?

    1. I am part of a makerspace workshop, and they have a lasercutter. So if there are any of those around where you live, then that is way cheaper and you don't have to do maintenance yourself :)

  2. Lovely job on this costume, especially the laser work pieces. So well done and looks beautiful. :)

    If I may ask though, where did you get the leather spray paint from? I've been looking at a number of different leather spray paint brands, in hopes to find a specific color, and I'm curious to see if the brand of spray paint you used has the color I'm searching for.

    1. Thank you. I got this spray can from Okadaya in Shinjuku Tokyo (Japan). The brands is SOMAY-Q, maybe you can fine it online?

    2. Thanks for the help. :)
