Rory Phillips Redesigns Wonder Woman in the Scythian Style


Says Rory Phillips, the artist behind this redesign: “I have always thought Wonder Woman should look more like a warrior, and less like a pinup. The Amazons of Classical Greek lore were from the region of Scythia. I wanted her outfit to reflect that culture and be almost ceremonial,” which is why he’s equipped her with a ceremonial Death Mask for headbutting and a deadly meteor hammer in place of her lasso.

    I think I may be in love with this.

    lot better in the end i say. tired of seeing the female hero in what i see as skimpy outfits. i don’t care if that was a way to draw the male audience, but i just get tired of seeing the females shown off as sex symbols. I really want to see a female hero without all the skin showing and not using her body as way to get her needs.

    Yes please. This is super-awesome and tons better than the official design.

    Not sure if I like the mask (maybe a half-mask, or even just remove the teeth?), but otherwise, heck yes!

    Also, demo of a meteor hammer in action: http://youtu.be/-ZMM0ESgXrA

    The breastplate actually looks functional. Nice.

    Wondy looks a little under-nourished but the costume looks great, albeit no more historically accurate than any other Wonder Woman costume ;-) That’s less Mycenaean death mask than classical Athenian theatre mask with more than a few hints of Noh theatre, for starters…

    Love it, but what’s the point of the protective mask if your tummy is vulnerable to stabby stabby?

    Seriously. This is no better than any other costume of hers at actually protecting her from attacks. Why not give her armor that COVERS her?

    YES.

    Hells yes. Although with a get-up like that, maybe her name should be Murder Woman?

  • FoxyBrown

    Holy crap! YES YES YES YES! This is fantastic!
