Kid-friendly Cosplay Wonder Woman

Today I am sharing the kid-friendly Wonder Woman cosplay costume I made for my youngest:

When I say “kid-friendly”, I mean age appropriate. No boobs or butts here. And I don’t think the costume is any lesser for it!

I will start by saying that my Falafel takes this role very seriously, and told me that Wonder Woman “does not smile”. So with the exception of this photo above, really she is a stern-faced super hero.

OK let’s get down to the details. For the shirt, I used the same one I made for her Astrid costume (which was made using Sew Much Ado’s Skipper Top), only for this one, I cut off the sleeves. I also took some gold vinyl and cut out an eagle and zig zag stitched it on.

For the skirt, I cut up some of my husband’s old jeans. I started with Momma Quail Patterns Abilene Skirt (like the one I made here) only I stopped at the crotch. I cut the yoke part into a “v” and then sewed piping around. I made it with a flat front and an elastic back. I made sure to top stitch any pieces I had to join together, so they look like jeans.

Then I made those arrow panels to mimic the ones found on a gladiator skirt (I believe they are called lappets- Thank you Craftingcon FB group!). They are lined with navy cotton fabric. I top stitched with denim thread (that gold stuff) and then sewed each one onto the skirt yoke, individually. I painted the white stars, freehand.

I love that the denim panels ended up being different colors (because they were from different pairs of jeans, after all).

Her golden lasso of truth, was not forged by the gods, but instead began as a humble braided curtain tieback that I unwound. I then used simple twist ties to hold the strands together. I created a loop to hook on her belt (which was found at a thrift store, and I painted it gold) with a hook and loop closure.

Her headband and wristbands were self drafted, made from that gold vinyl, and all are adjustable with velcro closures.

I also made her a faux cape/shawl out of fleece because it has been slightly chilly here, and I just found out that it will be 80 degrees the day we go to Comiccon.

Oh well. One less thing to carry.

Looks like we are all ready for Comiccon. The real question is, are they ready for us?!

  1. I love it, and I think the individual pieces could even be worn on a normal day as well (that shirt would be col on regular jeans and the skirt could work with a flower shirt), but I might be a bit weird in that 😉

  2. You did such a great job on this! I love her stoic portrayal of Wonder Woman. She is going to get a lot of attention at the con. 🙂

      1. Awe, thanks, Michelle! 🙂 I am soooooo behind in getting my kids cosplays done for this year. I am hoping to carve out some time this weekend.

  3. That is so cool! I bet she feels like a superhero! So wait… if they’re all done what’s the hubby going to be?!?!?! I don’t think we’ve seen that costume.

    1. Thanks! He was going to go as the Transporter (he kind of looks like him) and wear a black suit and tie, but he had to work:(
      We went today!

  4. I had to stop by and say it again! I love this! I know she has to think she has the coolest mom in the world…who has the coolest name E-V-E-R!

  5. Thank you so much!!! My daughter wanted the new WW for Halloween & once I saw your pin I was in love! It turned out great! Thank you for the inspiration!!!
