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.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
