The Bombshells at DC Comics have taken on a life of their own. They started as a series of collectible statues designed by Ant Lucia and fan feedback was so popular that DC took the designs to the pages of comic books. Tons of cosplayers have been replicating the distinct, retro style costumes, and now it’s going to be even easier for costumers because Simplicity has released patterns.
Simplicity has packages for Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman. The patterns cover each part of the outfits. For example, the Wonder Woman ensemble includes the shirt, shorts, and boot covers. You obviously will have to have some sewing skills to assemble these costumes, but patterns make it easier to bribe friends who can sew to help you. You can find them all on Simplicity’s website.
