DIY New 52 Wonder Woman Corset

new52 ww costume

Cosplayer Golden Lasso has dressed as Wonder Woman before, but this year she decided to tackle the New 52 version of the costume. The updated look features silver accessories rather than the classic gold and a lovely corset with a chevron pattern. She said it was a difficult project to make because of those chevrons, and she wrote a detailed tutorial for anyone curious about making this costume on her website.

You have to start with making your own corset, but it all begins with a corset pattern. It’s fascinating to read about the process; here’s how it begins:

Step 1: Use your corset pattern to make a mock-up. Make sure you use the same type of fabric that you will eventually use for the base of your final corset, I recommend something heavy like duck cloth.

Step 2: Put this mock-up on a dress form, a volunteer, or yourself if you have a friend to help. Then draw chevrons on half of the mock-up. Measure equidistant meeting points on the center front of the corset as a base, then draw out from there. The trick is that these cannot be straight lines drawn with a ruler. You will get a tube shape if you tried to make a corset out of straight lines that would not form to the contours of your body correctly. You have to draw chevrons that form to the body’s curves and appear to make straight chevrons.
