Wonder Woman!



Recently I saw a great documentary on PBS about Wonder Woman, who was created back in 1941.  Wonder Woman was a superheroine in comic books for decades before becoming a TV show in the Seventies.  Some of you might remember Linda Carter's portrayal in that classic show.

Wonder Woman is a warrior princess of the Amazons and is known in her homeland as Diana of Themyscira.  She is gifted with superhuman powers and superior combat skills. She also possesses an arsenal of weapons, including the Lasso of Truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets that stop bullets, a tiara that works as a projectile, and an invisible airplane.

My good friend Fuzzy just bought a Wonder Woman costume for herself and, at my gentle request, she agreed to let me wear it.  I'm thrilled!  Every little girl wants to grow up to be strong and beautiful like Wonder Woman.  I'm proof it's never too late.  :-)

Before I show you the pictures, I want to dedicate this post to Sheila whose Wonder Woman poses have amused the fashion blogosphere for years.  You go, girl!

  10. I'm a recent Sheila-follower, she's such a honey and oh my eyes, you ARE WW in that amazing costume! It's the best I've ever seen, most of them look so cheap and tacky, this one is beautifully-made in such lovely fabrics. Your legs + silver boots = perfection:). xo

  11. That outfit is fantastic!! I think my dad used to like Linda Carter. I think there was a certain Catwoman he liked, too.
    The only thing that would make this better is blue/black hair!

  12. LOVE this post! Yes, I am old enough to be a Wonder Woman fan...I had a Wonder Woman yoyo, and UNDEROOS! Remember those? I thought Linda Carter was the most beautiful woman ever! (She's still gorgeous!)
    Wow, you look great! And thanks for bringing back the memories!

  13. AHHH!! You are adorable!!! I never got into wonder woman as a kid, mostly because I never saw the show. I heard rumors of a movie in production though!

    Now I want to have a superhero party.

  22. Wonder Woman was definitely a character I liked more in theory. But whenever I saw how she was was portrayed in cartoons or on TV she struck me as being made to seem much too weak for such a backstory.

    Cool costume :)

  25. At the risk of sounding cheesy, this costume only serves to bring out how I view you - as a wondrous woman. You look awesome in it too!!

    It kind of looks like it was made for you.
