In Progress Wonder Woman Costume

wonder woman 1

One of the many appealing aspects about cosplay is that there aren’t any limits or constraints. You don’t have to stick to building screen accurate replica costumes from movies or television or try to match the pages of a comic book. Wonder Woman, for example, has worn several different costumes over the years between comics, video games, and toys, but cosplayer Emi, a.k.a. Emi-leigh didn’t choose any of those for her cosplay of the character. She’s designed her own take on Diana’s outfit, and it’s quite creative.

She’s still working on her Wonder Woman costume – she’s making a leather battle skirt next – but she’s made good progress so far. She started with a red corset and patterned her armor on top of it with paper. The armor is made from Worbla and this is how she added the engravings:

It was a double layer of worbla that I laid on some craft foam and heated up. When it was soft I pressed my design into it with a clay tool. I let it cool down and then peeled it off the craft foam!

You can see the difference that a coat of paint makes in the below before and after photos. Emi still needs to weather the armor pieces.
