October is finally upon is, and here at ComicsAlliance, and one of the best parts of the month is gearing up for Halloween with costumes! It's the one time of year when even people like me who could never cut it in our Best Cosplay Ever feature can drop by the local department store and walk out with the ability to dress up as our favorite characters.
But is that really a good thing? I have my doubts, which is why I'm spending every day taking on the store-bought costumes inspired by our favorite things. Today, we're wrapping the golden lasso of criticism around an array of Wonder Woman costumes!
Joss Whedon never got to bring Wonder Woman back to the screen. The pilot by David E. Kelley for NBC didn't stick. CW's Amazon sits in limbo. Some think the character too "difficult" to make an easy transition to the screen. That hasn't stopped LA production company Rainfall from taking their own unauthorized stab, with a trailer that pits Diana against two very different sets of foes.

Over the past few months, DC's We Can Be Heroes campaign has been raising money to fight hunger in the horn of Africa, and for this round of fundraising, they're putting the spotlight onto individual members of the Justice League. It's a pretty neat idea, harnessing the power of their fans for a good case, and with this week's focus on Wonder Woman, they're offering some interesting perks for people who donate.
Most of it's the kind of stuff you might expect, like signed comics, an exclusive t-shirt and a lithograph signed by Adam Hughes, but if you have $10,000 burning a hole in your pocket and you want to do some good with it, there's one major perk for your donation: Meeting Lynda Carter, who is, of course, best known as the mayor from Super Troopers.
Who would win in a fight between Sailor Moon and Wonder Woman? Ribbons versus lariats? Invisible plane versus silver crystal? Sailor Scouts versus Amazon warriors? Sapphic overtones versus... well, honors even on that one.
In comics, the answer would come down to whoever was writing the book, but the real world has a different way of settling these questions. The dance-off. At the Streetstar Festival in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this year, the two ladies met in the arena to see who would emerge triumphant. Their weapon of choice? Voguing. Now the video of that encounter has hit the YouTubes for everyone to enjoy.
Though Justice League War is the first of DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation's features to adapt a storyline from the New 52, it seems Wonder Woman will be getting a unique new look rather than donning Jim Lee's DC Comics design. In an image tweeted by PR professional Gary Miereanu, Wonder Woman (voiced by actress Michelle Monaghan) can be seen chatting with Steve Trevor over ice cream cones in a sleeveless suit with armbands, a higher-than-traditional neckline, and a slightly darker color scheme (more navy and crimson rather than brighter blues and reds). You can see what you think of Diana's upcoming Justice League War look -- or at least one of them? -- after the cut.

Check out a preview of the Wonder Woman apparel from the upcoming Lauren Moshi x DC Comics collection after the cut!
What artist Robert Valley did with his four-minute Wonder Woman short for Warner Bros. Animation's DC Nation campaign was much more than simply express the powerful essence of the iconic superheroine. In just a few precious seconds, Valley defies every expectation absolutely anyone would have about what Wonder Woman could be, from the most hardcore fan to entertainment executives who've been endlessly vexed by how to depict the Amazon princess Diana in motion. But how it works is not simple; it's not easy to articulate. But its success is totally manifest, and that quality is part of what defines the work of a great artist; someone with vision.
It is also inescapably f***ing cool, and demonstrates in vivid terms the versatility of her character.
