Costume Planning

For those that are longtime readers of this blog, it will come as no surprise that I have a ‘thing’ for Wonder Woman (you’ve got to admit, we would all love that invisible plane). In fact, I even found this cute, costumed Polly Pocket recently and had to snag it (proving that even at almost 40, I have not completely grown up)! So it will probably come as no surprise that I have wanted (for quite some time) to create a Wonder Woman costume. This year is looking like that year.

To create this look, I’m starting off with Simplicity 2067. It looks as if the design was modeled off the (canceled before it started) new series. While I’m skipping the pants and the shrug, the corset is the perfect shape, although it needs embellishing. Since I’m basing my look off the ’70’s version, I’m using a LARGE brief pattern, Kwik Sew 3881 (View A) and a fabulous fabric I found on eBay (the color isn’t exactly what I wanted, but it’s very close).

Hopefully, I’ll be able to find the time to put this look all together before Halloween arrives – it will even be a perfect complement to Easton’s look this year, Spiderman (I’m not making this one, he wants muscles and I’m not sure I can do that)! And for those of you wondering how die hard of a fan I am? Look at the AWESOME cake my family got me this year for my birthday!

    I made my own WW costume a couple of years ago. It looks like the same blue fabric I used. I made boy shorts for mine. I found it much easier to make the bustier from red spandex. I made it double layer to give it substance. To make sure it stayed up, I pinned it to my bra. But my favorite part of the costume was the WW boots!

    Guess what else is in the Wonder Woman costume mode – a SNUGGIE, seen in the KMart print ads last week! I wouldn’t wear that get-up outside the house, though.
