I made this for Halloween 2017 to go with my daughter’s bought Wonder Woman costume! I used the Simplicity 8196 Bombshell Wonder Woman pattern and it went together relatively easily. I used yellow satin for the headband, stretch cotton sateen for the top and stretch denim for the shorts and star appliqués (all from Joann’s) . The only trick was because I was tall, the bodice should have been lengthened and the shorts, instead of facing them, I did a wide waistband to make them hit me higher in the waist. If I was wearing this for a con I would add snaps from the bodice to the shorts I think to keep them together better. Also the top stitching W detail on the blouse was a bit tricky to get very clean lines, just due to user error. The belt buckle was 3D printed for me by my friend Derek! I then painted it with rub n buff and sealed. Boots and arm braces are from Amazon and aren’t fully accurate to the artwork, but I just didn’t care for a fun costume.
