For decades, dressing up as Wonder Woman has meant mixing up your sexiest self with a hefty portion of '70s camp. Sure, you'd have a skintight outfit and knee-high boots. But those giant, high-waisted, star-spangled briefs didn't do Lynda Carter any favors. Perhaps her costume was meant to deceive bad guys into thinking she was vulnerable, but anyone dressing up as her is at risk of feeling far more silly than badass.

was a rather dreary flick, but the screen magically came to life with every (too brief) glimpse of her Diana Prince. Whether in elegant civilian attire or in battle gear, she actually looks like she can take on the baddies and rescue those squabbling superheroes. She's got armor that speaks of her ancient origins, weapons that actually look deadly, and a hooded cloak for extra mystery. As we all look forward to the release of Wonder Woman
in 2017, we can also enjoy this as a new era in Wonder Woman Halloween costumes (and Comic-Con cosplay, of course). Here are all the elements you'll need to transform yourself into the fierce Amazonian, with options for buying, minor DIY-ing, and highly skilled crafting, from head to toe.Need more costume ideas for Halloween?
