NBC Takes Internet Criticism Seriously Enough To Redesign Wonder Woman Costume Based On Our Input
— Ace

So, they took your critiques to heart, and distilled, from your comments, that you wanted Wonder Woman to look less like a stripper and more like a demented bag-lady who thinks she's at a middle-school dance on Halloween night in 1983.


Hot ghetto mess:

wonder_woman_13_wenn3271766.jpg

Oh dear Lord, that looks cheaper that the crap I can buy off Frederick's of Metropolis.

You know, Wonder Woman's costume has always been problematic. Some comic guys were talking about this. Can't find the link now, but they pointed out that the minute you saw Batman's costume, you got the idea -- Vampire Vigilante. When you saw Superman with his bright S-Shield on his chest, you got it -- Space Cop.

What's Wonder Woman's costume say? Well, if you go with the actual classic design, it says super-patriotic All-American Lasso-girl; and that's a good hook for a character, but this character? Who's sort of Ancient Greek and the niece of Hermes and Hades? Her costume tells a story, but that story doesn't seem to have much to do with the actual character.

Point is, they've got their work cut out for them, so it's not all their fault. This is just a problematic character all around.

Anyway, this latest iteration is the costume is even uglier and cheaper than the last one. I don't mean to go all Mr. Blackwell here, but this is a comic book character, so I will anyway:

They're going with an Old Gold/bronze look instead of flashy gold-gold for her metallic bits in an attempt to seem more classy but instead the old gold looks even cheapo-beepo than the flashy bling would look; it looks not like metal but like plastic spray-painted with metallic paint.

Once again, just a case where going with the original would be a step up.

(You know, they did this sort of thing with the Superman reboot, turning his classic red, blue and yellow costume into teal, plum, and mustard... I think they thought it would look more adult and more fashionable. I think it just made him look like grandma's cookie jar.)

They add the stars to the leggings, but instead of going with her actual white stars, they go with gold ones, for some reason, and they just look kind of dumb going straight down her leg.

The boots... The red boots already look squooshy and cheap and put them right next to those blue pants and it looks like something my seven year old nephew would draw with a crayon right before I hit him in the face with a glass ashtray for being such a tasteless idiot. Clash of the Titans, indeed!

I don't know what to do about the boots, honestly. The old boots make perfect sense with either the skirt or the short-short pants but they seemed determined to show she's a Modern Woman by wearing long pants (but yet exposing that mile of cleavage? If you're showing boob, why not show leg?).

Maybe give her silver shin-plates to match her silver bracelets?

I don't know. It doesn't matter. The show will only be on the air for five weeks.

Oy. What a nightmare. I am going to watch every episode of this because professional embarrassment gets me off sexually.

5 As long as we're talking fashion and getting off on long pants, let me be the first to say how ridiculous MLB players look in those baggy pajama bottoms most of them are wearing these days. 

I guess I'm old school.  I remember when guys had to take off their gold chains and shit so the pitcher wasn't distracted and I remember good old Schotzie and her strict regulations on facial hair and whatnot.

25 um, if skin were an issue (as in, comic book heroines have to show it off more than actually fight crime), go with a sports bra look instead of bustier. You can get midriff and boobies without the uncomfort of having to stop filming action every 30 seconds to pull the thing over her nippies. but the whole thing is a trainwreck based on what Ace said last week.

34 That costume is horrific.  She needs something that isn't strapless.  Not every woman can wear strapless and carry it off.  She needs either a halter top or a bodysuit and tights.  The body suit can be booby, low cut but needs support.  There's just too much skin showing and she looks stupid.

40 That and she just looks like a stringy gym bitch with fake cans.

Lynda Carter is a fucking moonbat, but I can still spank it to he reruns 30 years later.  No one will be a better physical match for that role ever.

Posted by: nickless at March 30, 2011 02:22 PM (MMC8r)

41 Easy fix. 1. Replace the pants with short-shorts. 2, Keep the top, but cut it off just above where the rigs start. 3. Black boots and bigger boobs. 4. And replace the head with one that you want to kiss instead of what you got now, which is one that you want to punch because you paid it an extra $25 to swallow and it just spit all over the leather upholstery of your BMW.

44 She needs to appeal to women too, she could be a role model to little girls....she should look more toned and athletic and healthy.

If they had a brain among them they would have gone to Tim Gunn and that show and asked them to design the costume.   Everyone would have gotten publicity and the costume would have been right.

90 Her "gold" bits are supposed to be Greek armor. Bronze tone may be appropriate but it needs to look like armor not plastic. And when shown as bronze it typically is polished not matte finish.

The pants are an epic fail. I imagine, based on the color of her pants, they were trying to channel some rah rah USA by taking US Army dress blue pants, which feature a medium blue color and a gold stripe down the leg.

Boots look terrible.

Why did they go with non-shiny pants and not the same for the red pieces?

It's texturally distracting.  Plus, they didn't really change much - the boots are a different color and the pants have stars.  Oh, my.

I am also confused by the mixing of silver bracers with the gold trim everywhere else.  It's not cohesive.

It still looks cheap.  The vinyl really stands out as Walmart worthy or BDSM wear.  (The overuse of vinyl/shiny/flimsy material in store-bought disguises is why I make my own...)

Great minds - I posted a link to that guy's site on an ONT a while back.  His version at least brings to mind the Greco-Roman background of WW.  It makes sense in an overhaul of the costume.  He also has made a good Supergirl remake as well.

The top is some kind of attempt to get away from FF0000 pure red, as if pure red is a bad thing, and it's more mature to do a purplish red. (Again, as with superman, making his cape plum.)

135 The other thing about the classic look is that even if it's silly, we've all gotten used to it. It doesn't seem as silly because we've seen it fifty thousand times. We just say, oh, right, wonder woman. For the legs, if they are wedded to pants, go with a satin-look very dark blue such that it usually appears black (satin eats light), but just with blue highlights. That at least would cut down on the clash with the red boots. And do her bustier the old way -- pure red, bright gold.

158 The key to Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman was her hourglass figure. That is what hits you in the head. Giant tits, giant ass. big-old hips, tiny wasp-waist. That's what just sort of stunned the 12 year old boys to keep watching.

Of course, the orginal only lasted for 3 seasons, so  -- no great hit, either.

But I bet money that is at least 2 seasons longer than this new one will last.

The hip hugger pants look awkward to me, as they pull your eyes away from her waist, whereas the version from Carter's day used the gold belt to highlight the waist. (Yeah, I know, who's looking at her waist?)

One wonders when Hollywood and the alphabet channels will start showing  original material.  They drag out all these tired old stories that have long ago lost their usefulness.  Out of all the books published today, Hollywood still only does redos like Lethal I, II, III.  And the sad thing is that Lethal IX has the same plot as Lethal I.

As far as Wonder Woman is concerned, I look at that picture and wonder if running at the speed she does, will her top stay up.  It is, after all, barely there in the first place. This girl looks mean.  At least Linda what's her name looked cheerful.

184 To make it all even better, she'll have a dramatic scene where she gets to vomit out all sorts of leftist boilerplate in front of the Senate in one of the few episodes that'll make it to air. And, she'll have not one secret identity, but TWO. She'll be both the CEO of a huge (but socially conscious) corporation, AND her own secretary. That's right; she'll have three separate identities, two of which are expected to interact with each other frequently. I have to say, this actress they chose really does not have the right look. Her face and body both look too... soft. This costume also makes her look too pale. Wonder Woman should be majestic, decently tanned, and very well-toned. Ah, well. Maybe in a couple of years they can try again with a concept and actress bearing some resemblance to the comics. They can start by listening to me and casting Gina Carano in the title role.
