Why the last-minute butt cleavage? I’m way more interested in the front of her costume than of the back.
Looking at this, though, I realise that I was never that accurate drawing her—not if those panty lines are accurate. I drew a flatter, more modest (ha!) leg than second from the right. Definitely her bodice, too. I ignored most of the times it looked like a bird. I am clearly a Perez fangirl through and through.
It’s kind of a shame that it’s so iconic that it shrugs off attempts to update it, but then again—iconic. I will go with that, in this scenario (I’m kind of a sucker for Ororo’s first costume, but at least there is her second costume as balm on the sting).
I’m bouncing from site to site to cite the image, and I’m encountering some inexplicable stuff. For instance, inasmuch as I too do not like the outfit far left, this makes no sense:
The 60’s were not a good time in fashion history. It was a time of bell-bottoms and disco. Even our Amazonian goddess wasn’t impervious to its effects. In 1968 Wonder Woman issue #178 had Diana Prince go Mod. She wore a variety of “hip” clothing. That’s right go-go boots, jumpers, mini skirts, shift dresses, rain trench coats and the superhero classic, tights.
Children these days, I swear. Do they not understand the allure of vintage? Is there no eBay where they live?
