Awesome DIY Wonder Woman Costume

After an intensive research looking for a Wonder Woman Costume without success I found your web page. Once I reviewed the amazing homemade costumes I decided to do the costume that since a child I always wanted to wear. I was exited because this will give me the opportunity to try to do it as close as possible to the original one.

With the help and creativity of a friend, Elvin Cruz, with out whom I could have not completed this costume; and using a picture of Linda Carter as a pattern we started the project of the Homemade Wonder Woman Costume.

The cost of the fabric and materials to do the costume was $80. For the cape we used 9 yards of satin fabric in red, white and blue. The stars were the kind that you can iron and get easy in an arts and craft store. For the corset we had to do each part separately. We used an inner lining to give a better support to the satin fabric. We placed each star using the pattern in the picture.

To create the eagle we used gold Lycra fabric that was cut in small pieces and placed one by one to help create a better eagle form closer to the original design. This gold fabric was also used for the Tiara and belt. A golden string was used for the Lasso of Truth. For the bracelets we used metal bracelets and we added the small red stars.

It took us almost 3 weeks and hard work but we finally did it. At the end I was amazed by the final product. This is a unique piece. I would never get this type of costume in a store or for $80. My dream finally came true.

Thank you for the grate ideas, I hope my story can inspire other people to do more homemade costumes.
