Hey Everybody! They Made the Wonder Woman Costume Better!

This picture, and quite a few more, were captured at a night shoot for NBC’s Wonder Woman pilot, and we are impressed with the show’s willingness to adapt.
Lets run down the list:
The pants? Not shiny.
The blue? Darker.
The boots? Red.
The high heels? Gone.
The resemblance to a bargain box “Sexy Superhero™” Halloween costume? Disintegrated.
There are only two more things I’d like to see to call it perfect: straps on that bustier and silver stars on the pants instead of gold, as that would probably make the silver gauntlets seem like less out of place.
But one of those is a total nitpick. This is a costume that I look forward to seeing in cosplay, one that even looks like it would be fun to put together.
There are a bunch more pictures over at The Daily Blam! both of Adrianne Palicki and her stunt double in the costume, and if you’ve ever wondered whether superhero movies still look awesome before all the special effects and trick cuts, go no further than this video, curtesy of DC Women Kicking Ass:
The answer is, amusingly, no.
