Stunning Ame-Comi Wonder Woman Costume

DC’s line of Ame-Comi figures have interesting costumes, and Wonder Woman’s look is my favorite. Prolific cosplayer Yaya Han decided to recreate the costume for a convention, and the finished ensemble is stunning. It was the first DC Comics character she cosplayed, and though she had to put a lot of time into making the armor from Wonderflex, that part of the costume only cost her $60. Here are more details:

Originally I had wanted to sculpt the pieces and cast them in resin but that would have been expensive and heavy. I decided instead to make the pieces out of Wonderflex and covering them. I had the best reference which was the figure itself, and using it I made paper templates for every piece of the armor from shoulderpad to shinguards, shield, gauntlets, headpiece and breastplate. I painstakingly cut the pieces out, shaped them and covered them, then went back and did the same thing with the ornate gold borders. It was a time consuming process but only cost $60 in materials, a fraction of what resin and rubber would have cost. I structured the breastplate over a steel boned corset which I built.
