DC Entertainment’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice doesn’t hit theaters until March 2016, and we’ve only seen a few glimpses of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the film. But as I’ve discussed several times here, one image (or even part of an image) is all a cosplayer needs. Morgan, also known as Methyl Ethyl Cosplay, just completed her take on the new on-screen Wonder Woman costume for Comicpalooza. Wonder Woman’s new look has more of a warrior vibe than previous versions we’ve seen on screen. The overall palette is a little darker too, and it was hard to see exact colors in promo image that was released last summer. Morgan went with a dark red and blue for her costume, and the colors she chose ended up being a close match to the actual colors of the movie costume.
I’m especially impressed with how Morgan made the corset. Rather than sewing leather together or constructing it from inflexible Worbla, she used a body form and constructed the corset from EVA foam and contact cement. She sealed it with thin layers of Plasti Dip and painted the foam with burgundy vinyl and fabric paint. She aged it with black acrylic paint mixed with a little liquid latex before sealing it:
Sealing/painting the corset.
Step 4: seal your painted corset with a layer of matte Mod Podge. Once dry, coat entire corset with Pledge floor care multi-surface finish. Let dry between coats (I applied two coats). Once floor finish is dry, create the effect of battle scratches with a thin paint brush and watered-down white acrylic paint.
