Dark Halloween Costumes
Wonder Woman Halloween Costume Ideas
Wonder Woman has been fully accepted by the mainstream and is one of the most recognizable superheroes of all time. Not only is she an awesome combatant when it comes to getting rid of the evildoers that plague society, she also makes for an awesome Halloween costume.
To start, you will need gold, knee-high boots. Wonder Woman typically has thick red stripes down the side of each boot. Ideally, the boots should be "firm" as Wonder Woman's seem to be made of a metallic material.

Next, you will need a dark-blue skirt that falls about mid-thigh high. Be sure to cut small segments out of the bottom, so it extends farthest down the center, (in a way, the dress should form an upside down "W" shape. Using silver and gold construction paper, create the iconic "W" that acts as the superhero's belt section.
Next, purchase an entirely red corset (you can also buy a white corset and spray paint it the desired shade of red). Using more silver and gold construction paper, place another "W" at the top of the breastbone. Wonder Woman is also known for her silver wrist guards and her silver/gold headband.
She also wears long, black hair, so be sure to purchase a wig or wear your hair naturally if you so choose. Remember, this is your personal rendition of Wonder Woman, so if you want to change her hair color or any other aspect of the costume, you can certainly do so!
Feel free to experiment with makeup and jewelry as you put together the costume. Sometimes, Wonder Woman can be seen wearing a pendant around her neck.

Additionally, you can even make your Wonder Woman "battle damaged." To do so, purchase some Ben Nye liquid latex and apply it to the desired areas of the skin. When it dries, use red body paint to create fake injuries. You can also rub dirt along the arms and costume to make it seem as though you have been in fierce battle.
Now, you have all the information needed to create your own DIY Wonder Woman costume. This one is a bit more challenging than some of the others, but keep in mid that the process is meant to be fun and adventurous, so don't take it too seriously!
