I really have no faith in the entertainment industry at all anymore, which is why I take solace in watching old movies on TCM. Here's a picture of the new Wonder Woman costume:
I can't stand the costume at ALL, but I'm guessing maybe it's a promo picture, and/or this show is going to rely heavily on CGI. Or it's going to be constantly be nighttime on the show, a lá Smallville, so we can't tell that her tiara is plastic. I can forgive the fabric and plastic (somewhat) if they do something in CGI to fix it. Then again, I'm getting sick of CGI.
That being said, the blue boots are CRAP. Why would you want to get rid of Wonder Woman's red boots? They're iconic! The costume's fabric is cheap-looking, especially the red fabric, which looks like it came from a 1950's bar stool. And how does this girl move, let alone breathe? I feel sorry for her if she loses a contact lens and has to bend over with that pointy plastic thing sitting right on her abdomen. Goddesses don't need underwires, either, and that's the icing on this crappy Halloween costume's cake for me.
And the pipe cleaner lasso? Sigh.
For some reason Adrienne Palicki just doesn't look at fierce as she has in other pictures I've seen of her. There's a softness in her face that doesn't work for Wonder Woman. Hopefully they can play up those cheekbones somehow.
What do you guys think? Any fans of this new ensemble? (Don't be afraid to speak up!)
