So, I don’t like this look. She looks pretty because she is pretty and it’s a pretty dress, too, but it’s not a great fit for her body–

Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Wonder Girl (Back-to-School Series)

Cassie Sandsmark is my favourite of the Wonders. While Wonder Woman is the icon and Donna Troy’s Wonder Girl preceded her by thirty years, Cassie is the Wonder Girl I personally connect with.

And this outfit has a lot to do with it. I love its silly nineties earnestness.

Ready-to-Wear Superhero: Wonder Woman

A new column by CHRISTIAN MILIK

It’s no secret that Wonder Woman has a new look. Gone are the days of her golden eagle bustier and star spangled briefs to be replaced by an armored jacket and skinny jeans. It doesn’t matter how you feel about this costume change; I think we can all agree that this look is far more wearable than her iconic costume. This outfit at the very least says “I could wear that”. When I see superheroes in ready-to-wear rather than their usual custom couture looks, the first thing I think is “we can dress like that too”.

When dressing like a superhero there is a fine line between fashion and cosplay. For Wonder Woman’s new look we are trying to reproduce the overall ‘look’, not the details. If you are determined to wear a tiara and golden eagle belt, I suggest going all out and try to reproduce this costume in exacting detail. But at that point it stops being “ready-to-wear” and becomes “what-I’m-wearing-to-comic-con” . You can achieve a Wonder Woman look and still wear this outfit out on the town, around the house, or on an average day of work or school.

Interactive Wednesday: Leggings

Wonder Woman has a new costume.

I like a lot of this. I like the top, I can get behind the jacket, she looks fashionable and yet tough. The gold looks heavy and it’s a little too throwback to the early nineties for me but overall, I like it. Just one thing.

Wonder Woman is wearing Liquid Leggings.

Wonder Woman Katy Perry

Katy’s performance attire has been likened to Wonder Woman by more than just me — she tends to wear teeny and bright and I guess Diana’s the most mainstream superheroine so even if it’s not quite stars and stripes, she’s a brunette in a super-hero outfit, therefore: Wonder Woman.

But here she is out and about:

Rubber again! She is taking this superheroine thing seriously. And that could easily be an update on Wonder Woman. But look at the whole dress:

Wear the Flag

Two characters. One male, one female. One Marvel, one DC. One over 80 years old, one over 800 years old. One all-American, one a Greek immigrant — both famous for wearing the American flag.

Captain America and Wonder Woman are star-spangled icons.
