Wonder Woman Redesign Profile by Femmes-Fatales Wonder Woman Redesign Profile by Femmes-Fatales
This is the first in a series of character redesigns for an imagined Wonder Woman live-action television series as produced by myself initially based off George Perez's iconic run on the Post-Crisis title. First up is the star herself, Princess Diana AKA Wonder Woman.

When it came to designing Wonder Woman's costume for the show, I simply had to revisit a previous design I'd done. I wanted it to have a definite Greek influence to it as I imagine the armour would have been made on Themyscira. As such, she has a typical Greek battle skirt and a more structured leather bodice. She's also given straps. A strapless costume on Wonder Woman, no matter how iconic, is still eye-roll worthy considering the fact that her breasts would pop out of it within five seconds of heading into battle. I also stylized the golden circles that hold the straps together to include Ws in them. It may look busy in my style but this is intended to be a costume worn in real life so construction is essential. I hope you all like it. :)

Stay tuned for more Wonder Woman-related redesigns!

I like the straps, I like the skirt. The boots not so much. How about giving her greaves of a similar design as her bracelets so they would match.

This is actually an old design. I recently redid the design as part of my re-imagined DC Universe series. You can check it out in my gallery.

For Wonder Woman, it's never made sense to give her the shorts or the pants right out of the gate because that is not part of the Amazons' fashion lookbook. They adhere to Ancient Grecian styles so it'd be unlikely that they'd send their emissary out in fashions that they wouldn't even be familiar with. To have her dressing in a glorified bathingsuit makes little to no sense. I think people just have this image stuck in their mind of Wonder Woman dressing like she's a stripper and they feel conflicted when they actually see her dressed in something that is functional and appropriate even when it makes the most sense not only for the character but for her history. There is also a thread of people out there who are unable to take Wonder Woman seriously because she prances around in a bathingsuit. Yeah it may look aesthetically pleasing but it's not practical and it doesn't convey the message Diana preaches. Wonder Woman is NOT Starfire so it wouldn't make sense to have her dress like her. My feeling is that characters should always dress appropriately for who they are and it should make sense. It wouldn't make sense for Emma Frost to be wearing a turtleneck just as it wouldn't make sense for Barbara Gordon to be wearing a cleavage-bearing Batsuit. Wonder Woman comes from a time in comic book history when all women wore the standard Beauty Queen bathingsuit costumes so it's time we stopped treating Wonder Woman like she's still a relic from 1941.

Actually the original 1941 version wore a short skirt a bit longer and more modest then you gave her. Here is the sketch:


The swim suit works fine in the comics and seems to be prefered by readers. However a TV show or movie is different.  Pants would demean her to just another comic book heroine. The skirt is the way to go, it maintains her femininity but makes more sense.

There's a rather large misconception that Wonder Woman wore a skirt in her first appearances. She wore culottes that gave the impression she wore a skirt. Hardcore WW fans may know that her creator drew her in shorts because his wife felt she shouldn't wear a dress.

(Since when are pants demeaning?)
