Cosplayer JusZ was inspired by Wonder Woman fan art done by NoFlutter Art and Designs and decided to turn the 2D illustration into a costume. The art features Wonder Woman in a steampunk style costume with a corset and ruffles in addition to her tiara and bracelets. After considering materials and ideas, JusZ started by mocking up the jacket and to get the details just so, she had to teach herself a new technique: piping. She says:
“I made my own piping with some twine I had in my stash and the fabric I’ll be covering the armour in. I would have liked the cord a little thicker, but when it’s midnight you go with with what you’ve got. It’ll be sewn to the sleeve cuff and then the sleeve gathered and sewn to the cuff.”
You can see a picture of the piping in progress below as well as a look at how she made the iconic tiara. She used EVA foam and covered it with gold metallic fabric.
