If your are ready to dish out a heaping dose of justice, suit up in a Wonder Woman costume that you can even make from home.

Items needed to make your Wonder Woman Costume

Items Needed:
Red leotard
Bright blue miniskirt
White fabric paint
Star stamp or potato
2 yards red fabric
Red ribbon
Gold belt
Long brown wig
Recycled containers
Gold paint
Gogo boots


Step 1: First you’ll need to start off with a red leotard, preferably sleeveless. If you are crafty, use a metallic gold pen to draw the Wonder Woman emblem in the center of the leotard.

Step 2: For a more modest look that skimp bottoms, wear a blue miniskirt over the red leotard. You can choose a straight style, or the more popular flounced style (a running, tennis or dancing skirt would work perfectly). Use a foam stamper shaped like a star (or a stamp carved from a potato) and make imprints randomly around the skirt with white fabric paint. Let dry.

Step 3: Fashion her cape from a couple yards of red fabric that is gathered with a ribbon drawstring. To do this, make a casing by folding the fabric over about 1–inch and sewing down along the edge; slip ribbon through the casing with safety pin attached as a “threader”. When finished, tie ribbon in bow around neck and let cape dangle over shoulders.

Step 4: If you do not naturally have long brown hair, you will want to wear a wig that you then top with a tiara or golden diadem. Other accessories include her bullet–deflecting arm cuffs that can be made from recycled plastic containers and gold paint.

Step 5: Finish off your Wonder Woman costume with a pair of white, red or blue go go boots and a length of white rope that has been looped up into a lasso.
