There’s been a lot of controversy lately surrounding the new costume design for Wonder Woman, with many feeling that giving the iconic superhero pants really misses the mark.
Shawna Trpcic, a costume designer who worked on Joss Whedon shows like Firefly, Angel, Dr. Horrible’s Sing A-Long Blog, and Dollhouse, revealed designs for the superhero that she created for live-action Wonder Woman movie that Whedon was linked to in 2005, before leaving the project in 2007.
Trpcic took it upon herself to post four sketches of her costume designs for that Wonder Woman project to her Twitter account.
Her designs aren’t really similar to those of Jim Lee, who did the recent redesign for DC Comics, except for the part that people seem to be the most upset about — pants! (Of the four, two versions include pants.) Check out the images here below and let us know if you like Trpcic’s designs better than what we are getting now.
Would people have been more open to a costume redesign had it come from a Whedon Wonder Woman film? I vote nay. I wouldn’t care necessarily if Diana wore an updated costume in a movie, but I would not be happy if that same costume jumped into the comics. To me adaptations should not change the source material, but then again I’m just a geek.
