DIY Wonder Woman Outfit
(with comments)

For knitters: How to make a Wonder Woman Costume.

I started knitting this Wonder Woman costume to wear to the San Diego Comic-Con in July (2008), but escalated production when my friend decided to throw a costume birthday party for me at the end of June. I made up my own pattern for the bodysuit embellished with star and eagle motifs, wristbands and headband. It took me about 6 weeks, finished the night before the party! I'm happy with the results. Hope that you think that it's fun too!

Technical data:

Knit on US4 circular needles in Elann Esprit (red, white, and blue) and Cascade Fixation (yellow).

Follow the instructions, and you'll look like this:

    Your Wonder Woman costume is way better and the model is gorgeous compared to what's-her-name in #1. Interesting site, too. In lieu of a cold shower, think I'll just go stand in the rain for a while.

    Is step #7 "eat 5,000 calorie a day for three years"?

    That makes my angry!
    The other wonder woman looks good but that looks store bought. If not bravo.
