Holy PVC, Batman! What the hell is Wonder Woman wearing?
What you’re seeing is actress Adrianne Palicki modelling her Wonder Woman costume for the forthcoming NBC revival of the comic book heroine. Sadly, the outfit looks like a shiny inflatible fancy dress costume.
Frankly, it’s fetishistic and cheap. I’m not a fan of what looks like painfully divided boobage and the rubbery looking tiara. If this was a costume for a spoof show, I could let it ride, but this is supposedly the real deal.
It’s a mantra that we keep repeating on Unreality Shout, but comic book fans are the most demanding audiences in the world. If the series is to survive at all – and not become a repeat of The Bionic Woman – it needs to be at least authentic. The way things stand right now, it looks like Wonder Woman will be as cheap and campy as the Adam West Batman series.
Come on, NBC, at least make it look like you’re trying to make this series a hit!
