Comic-Con, the world’s largest comic book/fantasy/character convention, ended a little over a week ago here in San Diego and I must admit all the buzz and hype surrounding the four-day event inspired me to write this blog. Superheroes wear makeup too, and in fact, some would be unrecognizable without their elaborate makeup and getups.
As I thought of how characters and costume relate, I asked myself, “What female comic book/fantasy characters have a good, wearable look? A look that could be worn by almost any woman right now?” A few came to mind…Catwoman, Princess Leiea, Supergirl and of course, Wonder Woman. Of all the comic book/fantasy characters I could think of, Wonder Woman is my favorite. I remember watching reruns of the 1970’s television show as a kid and thinking how cool it was that her alter ego, Diana Prince, could transform so quickly into a lasso wielding, bullet deflecting superhero.
Although a few actresses have played the role of Wonder Woman, to me, Lynda Carter is the best physical embodiment of a character who “triumphs with love, not fists or firepower.”
Who knew conquering evil with love required a skintight bodysuit, red boots and red lipstick? If there’s one thing I learned from Wonder Woman, you can fight like a man and look fabulous doing it.
