You were warned that this is going to get geeky.
So Entertainment Weekly posted pictures of Adrianne Palicki in the new Wonder Woman costume from the reboot Â that is being done by David E. Kelley. The new show is supposed to be a serious, non-campy show. In that outfit? Really?
I feel I must take this moment to clarify. I am not a purist when it comes to the costuming of our super heroes. I have seen the hubbub over Green Lantern not being true enough, etc. I am not one of those people. But…
This outfit is so wrong! That weird shiny plastic paired with that ruby, plastic lip makes Wonder Woman look like a blow up doll! Seriously, it looks like cheap lingerie that is out around Halloween. And no, I am not saying that because I think that the costume should be more conservative. I think it should just be more true to the Wonder Woman story. Which means I am fine with the little swim suit looking costume from the ’70s show but done a little better.
Is the costume looking this bad just as a rebellion from the patriotic costume? If so, get over it David E. Kelley! She has a patriotic costume! Go with a darker blue! And what is up with those boots? Having them look like that same plastic material on the pants makes them look like a dress up costume. You know what I am talking about? The kids get those costumes where the legs have the boots printed on them and it fits over their own shoes. And the shine on the bustier is just sad. With everything being uniformly shiny, it makes the cuffs look cheap and soft too! Am I alone here?
I love Wonder Woman! Wonder Woman is the first person/thing/job I wanted to be. I had the little Wonder Woman spin down at just a few years old. I don’t just like the Wonder Woman from the show either. I have always loved her in the Justice League comics, in their various incarnations. She is that strong, moral female role model. Yes, she may be hot and in swimsuit (or a bomber jacket;) but pay her a little respect.
Maybe I am just bitter because Joss Whedon’s Wonder Woman movie never panned out.
