Things We Saw Today: Justice League Changed the Amazons’ Practical Armor to WHAT?
Cosplayer and blogger extraordinaire Kimi, a.k.a GoldenLassoGirl, recently posted an excellent and infuriating analysis of the Amazon costumes we’ve seen so far from the Justice League set. Looking at side-by-side comparisons with the costumes from Wonder Woman, she asks the obvious question: why the hell did the Amazons go from wearing battle-appropriate costumes in Wonder Woman to generic barbarian bikinis in Justice League?
(We all know why, don’t we?)
Now, this comes with a few caveats. The warrior women in the trailers might not even end up being the Amazons; we may not have seen them in full armor yet. But it doesn’t look great so far. And as Kimi writes in her blog post, “To be absolutely clear, my issue is not with the lack of modesty … I have a problem with a really great design being thrown out in favor of something that would excite the cis male gaze.” Be sure to check out her photos and analysis for yourselves.
- Over at Vice, Megan Koester wrote about the demoralizing experience of trying to break the Louis C.K. story before the New York Times published it. “Narcissistic people,” she wrote, “which the entertainment industry has in spades, are only woke when it’s politically convenient.”

- In the latest segment of Adam Savage’s Tested posted to YouTube, they chat with Jose Fernandez of Ironhead Studio about the process of creating Cate Blanchett’s amazing Hela headdress from Thor: Ragnarok. I’m never going to stop being amazed by all the work that goes into costumes, scenery, and props.
