My daughter wants to be Wonder Woman for Halloween this year. I’ve been waiting for an excuse to try some costuming making using foam and other materials, so this was a perfect opportunity.
I want to base the costume on the one worn in the recent Wonder Woman film. With that in mind I knew the costume would consist of several discrete parts:
- Shin Guards
The trickiest and most labour intensive of these is definitely the armour. It will require creating a pattern made of several pieces which I will need to cut out of foam, glue together, add details to, and paint. The armour is form-fitting so I’ll need to figure out how to do that too.
My current plan is to build the armour first, then complete the other pieces one-by-one in decreasing order of importance to the costume until I’m done or I run out of time. If that happens then Zoe can wear whatever pieces are completed and it will still look decent even if she’s missing, say, shin guards.
