Wonder Woman makes a great choice for a Halloween costume for any little girl. The symbol of power, justice, and equality, she provides a wonderful role model, and makes a girl feel powerful and strong. And what little girl doesn’t need to feel like a superhero now and then?
The Story of Wonder Woman
You probably already know the basic story of Wonder Woman. If not, this is it in a nutshell. She was a woman named Diana, living with a group of other superlatively smart, beautiful, fast, and strong women known as Amazons in Paradise Island. When a plane crashed on their island and the pilot survived, they got into a competition about who gets to return the survivor to the world and save the world from dishonesty, war, and bigotry.
The Ideal Costume
If your daughter or granddaughter needs a costume for the Halloween party, Wonder Woman is the perfect choice. Whether she is going around door to door for “trick-or-treat” or is going to a Halloween party, the costume of Wonder Woman would make her noticeable and likeable. After all, who doesn’t love Wonder Woman?
The costume itself is known by everyone, and it’s very easy to whip one up in a hurry. (Or, if time is pressing, feel free to go ahead and buy one ready-made.)
The Basic Costume – Tops
The basic of the costume is simple: a red shiny top (might be leather or other material) with a blue, star-sprinkled brief pants. The good thing about the costume is that no matter what the age, it is available and suitable for all ages. So let us go to the finer details of the magnificent costume. Normally, the top is a red corset. Sometimes there is a big, shiny golden “W” attached on the front. The cloth is usually synthetic, but if your child has skin problems, cotton wouldn’t look bad; or you could have cotton or woolen lining on the inside of the suit. Of course, for a child, you might want to abandon the corset idea and just have a traditional top with or without sleeves.
Wonder Woman traditionally dresses in tights, and that’s probably as good an option as any. However, some might think that a little girl should wear something more comfortable and “age-appropriate”. Fitting shorts are an option, as is a miniskirt. Just make sure whatever it is, it is blue in color. There are white stars on the leotard of Wonder Woman, so make sure to stick a few cute felt stars on whatever it is that replaces (or doesn’t) the leotard.
The boots of Wonder Woman are quite unforgettable to anyone who has ever seen it. Usually it is an ankle length blue and white boot, but a red and white or red and blue combination would not look bad either. You can also improvise with the length of the boot, though if you want to make it higher than the ankle, remember that it might get a little uncomfortable as the evening wears on.
The Golden Belt
Once you got these two, there is the famous golden waist belt of Wonder Woman, which is the source of all her powers. Without it, Wonder Woman would never be complete. You can purchase it or just make it yourself at home.
Don’t Forget the Bracelets
The indestructible bracelets that have helped Wonder Woman in countless occasions are not to be forgotten. Bright and shiny, they’re readily available for purchase on the internet. Remember that they are bulletproof and should at least look like it. Speaking of signature weapons, the “Lasso of Truth” is a must.
With all the weapons and the perfect costume, you can bet that your little girl will have a good time at the party or out trick or treating.
