    Default Fixing The Wonder Woman Costume (UPDATED)

    It didn't take long for yesterday's made-for-photoshop pic of Adrianne Palicki in the new TV Wonder Woman costume to start inspiring potential improvements on the original. It's never easy to do a redesign on a classic which is true to the original iconic look and with modern and practical updates. There have been several comic-to-movie costume controversies already this year, including Captain America and Green Lantern, but something tells me the discussion over this Wonder Woman costume is far from over. Here's some of the alterations to this new design that popped up overnight:

    Now updated with some new entries from the BC Forums and elsewhere:

    From CKdoubleU in the BC Forums:



    From C. Wallace in the BC Forums:



    From Andy Mangels of Wonder Woman Museum:



    From artist Alex Wright:



    From KristenBays on twitpic:



    From slimpanther on imgur:



    From artist Ty Templeton:



    From DC Women Kicking Ass and Dvmac on tumblr:



    It has been noted that this last design is similar in spirit to a 2006 redesign for Project Rooftop by Jamie McKelvie, which I must agree is a pretty good look that would probably translate to real life well:

    Red and yellow chest + blue leggings + red boots = "Super" to me.

    This is my favorite re-do. It's by Alex Wright:

    Funny how almost every change is darker pants and red boots - maybe it means something...

    The last time I saw such drama about a pair of boots being the wrong color was when the wife was watching Project Runway! It is good to see that there is very little complaining about her not being in hotpants or a bathing suit bottom though.

    How about this? Not my best work, but it's not easy polishing a turd.

    I like it, C. Wallace. I kind of like the black pants better really.

    Any others out there? I'll update the post in the morning.
