There was a time when every young girl wanted to dress in a wonder woman costume for Halloween. The television show was popular and she even made an appearance during Saturday morning cartoons. Now, wonder woman costumes are alive and well and still a good choice for Halloween and costume parties.
A good wonder woman costume will stick closely to the way she is depicted in the cartoons, comics, and television show. This involves the color scheme of red, white, blue, and gold. The bottom is blue with white stars; the top is red and gold, and the top piece that goes on the head is gold with a red star. An optional accessory is a lasso, which is often her weapon of choice.
You can purchase the wonder woman costume, buy it, make it, or rent it. There are plenty of patterns and the costumes are usually available at costume rental and purchasing stores. The wonder woman costume is usually skimpy so if your child wants to wear it for Trick-or-Treat some modifications will need to be made.
Wonder Woman is usually depicted as busty and strong with long legs and hair. However, you can easily adapt a pattern to suit a child. You can turn the bottom portion into a skirt and give the top portion sleeves. This will help make the costume more child-friendly.
If you are going to an adult costume party and you would like to get into character, try watching some episodes from the television show or watch the cartoon. You can also read some of the comics. Dressing up for a costume party is more fun if you can play the character for the evening.
For added superhero fun you can enlist a group of your closest friends and have them dress in other costumes such as Superman and Spiderman. Or, if you are hosting a costume party, you can make it a superhero theme party. Just remember that if you are female and you do decide to host the party, a wonder woman costume is an excellent choice. The costume is flattering and sexy and you will definitely be one of the best dressed.
