Best improvised Wonder Woman costumes

Posted by RazzaTazz (8968 posts) - - Show Bio

Diana almost always sticks to her regular costume as her approach is not so much based on stealth or surreptitiousness.  Compared to Batman who is often in some disguise, the need rarely is there for Diana.  Still there have been a few instances where she has donned other clothes.  Here are some of my favourites: 

She was impersonating a member of a Chinese cult here (from Wonder Woman vol 1, issue 285) 
 
I didn't much like the John Byrne run on Wonder Woman, but this costume from a dream sequence where she was battling the Cheetah was good. 
This is my favourite, after accidentally traveling back in time she disguised herself as Miss America so that her mother would not find out she was there.

The last scan makes me think 'magical girl transformation sequence' in the style of Sailor moon XD  
 
Great blog! I love the second outfit -- I wonder if it comes in my size?

I kind of have a soft-spot for Wonder Woman's total disregard for reality. Maybe nowadays there's a little too much focus on examining the Woman part of her name and far too little time placed into just enjoying the Wonder part.

I read a story yesterday, where she was in a room, that had filled with water (somehow... oh wait, a single water molecule started expanding, that's right erm...) and so rather than just have Diana knock down the wall, or even door, or window... she put her feet on the door and started to spin like a bottle top, in order to bore a hole though the door, so her and Steve Trevor could escape... 0_0 It was crazy awesome lol (and convinced me she actually wanted Steve Trevor to drown lol) so I agree too!  
 
 
 
Great blog Razzy! The first one freaks me out. The third is my favorite as well.

HAHA! Well, perhaps that's just how they get through doors on Paradise Island...

Agreed. I think the main problem is that nowadays people seem to think that realism and relatability are what make stories and characters good. I made a thread a while back asking if realism really makes things better and stated that I think it really doesn't matter if something's realistic or not. Imaginative stories and characters can be just as good and even better than relatable characters and realistic stories if you ask me.

I think they're both important. I mean, it's really funny how fanciful some of Wonder Woman's golden age stories were, and purely escapist fantasy is great in small doses, but I think her best stories are the ones that are relatable and are, well not necessarily realistic, but truthful to the internal logic of the world she lives in. It's just, she does have this legacy of complete silliness that few people really know about, and its nice to see that side rather than see her taken too seriously as a super-feminist icon (even though that's more the public's perception of her rather than who she is in the comics).

Well, when you're almost as strong as Super Man, invulnerable, and can fly.... You can afford to have a disregard for reality.  LOL!
Being Hot also helps...

But, we have to see people dealing with ghosts & aliens in a realistic way.

Also, since she is based on greek myth, but its like Thor, if they were to make a movie, it'd try to make her created by aliens. Realisticly.
