Your Everything Guide to Wonder Woman's New Costume

This is it! Your first glimpse of Adrianne Palicki as NBC’s Wonder Woman. Are you thrilled? Disappointed? Before you decide, you might want to read this guide to everything new and exciting about the latest in fanboy fetishwear.

1. A high-fashion accessory that doubles as a deadly boomerang, the
Golden Tiara is like Wonder Woman’s hood ornament: the first thing you see careening toward you before wonder-impact. This V-shaped version reveals a small amount of forehead space below her brow, which might add a sleek, tribal element to the costume—but nonetheless could make for unsightly forehead tan lines.

2. Wonder Woman has traditionally leaned toward a heavier, evening look with her Wonder Makeup. This version forgoes the blue shadow and instead draws the enemy’s eye to a glossy, crimson lip, adding extra oomph to powerful lines like, “In the name of the mighty Aphrodite and the United States of America, I command you to eat my fists, Baroness von Gunther!”

3. If the Golden Tiara is her hood ornament, then the Bustier of Righteousness is akin to Wonder Woman’s grill and headlights. As such, we find her high-beams a little widely set here for our tastes. We think this might have something to do with Title 36 of the U.S. Flag and Patriotic Symbols Code, which states that “placement of the Bald Eagle’s head should be such that it has ample room to breathe.”

4. The legendary Lasso of Truth, or Lariat of Hestia, was forged by Hephaestus from the golden girdle of Gaea. That’s common knowledge. What makes this Lasso of Truth so remarkable, however, is that it also doubles as a Golden Braided-Weave of Truth—for those moments when Wonder Woman needs to infiltrate a star-studded Grammy party disguised as Alicia Keys.

5. According to legend, Wonder Woman's Bulletproof Bracelets were made from Athena's shield, which itself was fashioned from the unbreakable hide of the great she-goat, Amalthea, who suckled Zeus as an infant. Unfortunately, that material has become impossible to find since Zeus-suckling she-goats were added to the endangered species list. Instead, these cuffs were made from a titanium alloy, then coated in a thin layer of the same substance Pauly D. uses in his hair, rendering them virtually indestructible.

6. The Shiny Pants of Freedom will likely be unfamiliar to Wonder Woman purists more accustomed to the Star-Spangled Spanks of yesteryear. But give them a chance. These all-weather bottoms not only offer stylish protection from the elements, but will also provide us with endless excitement in their ongoing battles against the evil Cameltoe of Injustice.


What do you think of Wonder Woman's new look?

This article is hilarious! I like the newer less SHINY pants with the star elements brought back in running down the sides. And people must have complained about those BLUE boots enough that they are now RED! That eagle "code" was funny and the car analogy haha. Great article and fun.

Time for an update TV.com!! New pictures have been released from the set of the show. And in those pics her pants are not shiny latex! I repeat: Not shiny! And her boots are RED and not shiny either, but look like leather boots. The pants also have stars on the outer seams. Saw these pictures over at The Daily Mail.

the costume looks like something you'd see in a cheep porno wonder slut. the designer needs to go back to school or find another line of work. there is only 1 wonder woman and ever will be Lynda Carter.

It's too comic booky, I thought she was an Amazon Warrior? Where's her sheild and sword?

Looks like a Disney costume! Sort of like the things you see in Theme Parks! It does not radiate "power" in anyway.

Awful costume. It looks like it was made from trash bag material. The actress' legs are so bad she had to wear pants?

I am up for my fair share of women on Heroic roles on TV but for the love of TV let this character go away or stay in cartoons. Nothing against the classics but this is not going to work the way is getting made. I don't usually hate on these things, i am comic book guy, but please just this once. STOP.

wonder woman has to wear RED boots - not blue. otherwise the costume is do-able but not great.

This actress looks mean. And I don't mean that as a compliment.

Anyway, the costume tries to have it both ways. Try to look a bit more practical yet still titillating. This show will go the way of the Bionic Woman remake. That never finished its season, far short of the 2 1/2 seasons of the original. Likewise, this poor cousin will not last 15 episodes compared with Lynda Carter's 2 1/2 seasons. Mark my words.

Oh, and mermayd, Lynda Carter ran in a strapless costume all through her show.

My husband said the outfit looks like something you would get from a costume store for trick or treating. Sorry...his words...not mine.

I will not be watching this series. Who is this woman who thinks she can be a wonder woman? Can she act? Anyone remember her in anything? The outfit is not appealing. They have gone to far from the original look of Wonder Woman. Whoever "they" are need to go back to square one with this idea. This was not a good idea for a remake. Maybe they should scrap the idea. Anyone for an Iron Man series with Robert Downey Jr. and Terrance Howard?

As a long time Wonder Woman and comic fan I can honestly say I am very disappointed with this outfit. It comes off like an S&M outfit that Rihanna would wear in her latest music video. It just looks cheap and almost sleazy....

I would rather see Wonder Woman wearing the shorts, not the long pants.

I understand wanting to update the costume along with the series, but this costume design is too distant from the Orignal, which I think is definately prefered by most in reading the comments. I think you could have gone a different route with the actress, but that can't be changed at this point, but I think a reason within the series can given to change the outfit, closer to the Original. If not, the boots should definately be RED.

will be focusing on the end of point #6

there are so many actresses that would have been a better choice than this one.

Hollywood can't come up with an original idea, so we're subjected to remakes of classic TV shows. Great... now we have "Butterface" starring as Wonder Woman. She's no Lynda Carter, who still would look better in this costume than this botox pumped face they have now. She's obviously related to someone at the studio to get this gig.

I'm getting so sick of remakes of old TV shows and movies. What ever happened to ingenuity and work ethic? These kids running the networks and movie studios need to be fired and some new, intelligent people hired.

What next? Let me guess... The Flintstones and The Jetsons? Gimme a break!

Looks good, but is pointless since NBC is just going to cancel it before the 1st season ends anyway.

This outfit looks aweful and she doesn't look like WW to me at all! I predict this show is destined for failure.

Adrianne who?



Her face is the wrong shape.

Her breasts have too much spillage.



And, WHAT'S WITH THE LONG PANTS???



Is nothing sacred?



We all know the gorgeous Amazonian wears shorts a la Daisy Duke!

Get with the program!



These new producers can't get anything right.

i agree. the boots should be fire red. other than that i love it. anyone know if and when this new wonder woman is coming on.

The boots...gotta be RED. And bracelets need to be gold to go w/the tiara. Other then that I dig it. Wouldnt mind a star or two placed on the pants as well but I can live w/o it.

Boots SHOULD be Red to match her corset. And give more contrast.

Cheap and tacky! She looks like she won the outfit on eBay for $1.00 either that or she's wearing it for a client! ;-)

Have you ever seen the official video for Primus' song Wynona's Big Brown Beaver? I think the costume would fit into that video very well. But for Wonder Woman? Let's see the legs! This is just no good.

I completely agree with thinking the costume looks very cheap!! Very very cheap! :(

Hopefully though, the series will be great.

The cheap-looking Halloween costume and the horse-faced casting tells me this series won't last long; I predict the same ballpark as Bionic Woman.

She looks like she smelled a bad fish and was then slapped with it.

Personally, as someone who loves the character, I think they should ditch the costume all together. I mean, honestly, what purpose does it serve? Get something a lot less tacky, the character deserves it.

I don't like it. The outfit looks cheap, like something that would be bought as a halloween costume. Too shiny and plastic looking. And what happned to the red, WHITE, and blue of WW's traditional outfit? And I think the only time the (comic book) WW wore long pants was when she was in disguise...

simply put: ridiculous. plus without the short, we can't see the legs!!!

Too shiny. Too colorful. I think she might pop out of her bustier if she tries to run in it. It would have been fun with a costume with focus on practically in combat while being true to it's roots. That would have said the show would have had a lot of action. I don't know what this says.

I think they're going a little to literal with this remake. Couldn't have modernized the costume like they did with the bogus sounding storyline??
