I think something similar to the following would be close to my "ideal" orginal costume for Wonder Woman:

http://static4.wikia.nocookie.net/__...3/36/Livia.jpg

It's hard to see the whole costume, so here are a couple of images which show the bottom half a little clearer:

http://images2.fanpop.com/images/pho...7-1024-768.jpg

http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__..._and_Livia.jpg

What I like is that it appears somewhat "practical", other than the cleavage, although I expect Wonder Woman's costume to also have a certain level of "sex appeal". I also like that it is based on ancient Roman armour. And I think it also does a semi-decent job of making a rather thin actress look somewhat formidable as a warrior. And finally, although it comes from "Xena: Warrior Princess", I think it is sufficiently distinctive from Xena's costume to avoid some of the more obvious comparisons between the two characters.

Very cool.

It reminds me of this costume design for Donna Troy:

My god...if there's ever a WW costume that I'd like to see, this is definitely a design I'd support (only problem is that Gal's small frame probably doesn't even help sell the costume).

^I would not have a problem at all with an adaptation of that as her finale battle outfit.

I like the Smallville "Wonder Woman" armour, but I think I'd prefer the very similar New52 armour:

http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/...2903163-01.jpg

The design elements are very similar between the two.

This is great. The tweaks I would make:

- Attach the pauldrons properly.
- Change the design on her chest to a Romanesque golden eagle.
- Put star shaped rivets on her skirt.

Ah, but here is the thing. The nu52 WW is not fresh of the island now, is she. It's made fairly clear in Azarello's run, that she's been around for a while.

Depends, if they go with Herodotus then perhaps. But lets be honest. The movie producers won't take such fine distinctions into consideration. To them it's all greek, so to speak. And besides, the comics also established the greco-roman heritage, therefore, the producers will certainly not overcomplicate things from their perspective by turning WW's appearence into an ethnographical study of classical period cultures.

Off topic but I miss Donna Troy. I actually liked her as and loved her WW design. Now, she doesn't even exist anymore. At least until I get a job at DC.

I have a feeling that she will not be in historical accurate armor...I have a feeling she will be closer to her comics costume.

I think we'll see something closer to this.

I'm hoping so. I still wish the pants would have stuck in the New 52.

I hate that design. It looks so uninspired, like it was deliberated over for about thirty seconds.

"How can we modernise WW's hokey old look?"
"Uh...give her pants? Oh- and make it darker!"
"Sure. Anyway, it's WW- no one will care."

You guys are putting too much on it. I like the costume. I think it needs a few more touches and the colors are off, but that could be because it's a toy figure.

Very true. The only thing that was innovative about the design in general is it all being silver accessories. Everything else was just generic.

That's what you get when you let Jim Lee redesign a superhero costume.

i don't think he is a bad designer...some of his X-men designs are awesome. I think the filmmakers of this film will use that as a starting point...just like New 52 Superman looked to be a starting point for the MOS suit and make changes based on Snyder's ideas.

The Guard, what exactly is wrong with that you don't like? Also do anyone have any pics from the 52 with her in that costume? Or another pic that is not the toy?
