Because some days you really just need Diana being a stoic badass and SWORDFIGHTING in a BALLGOWN.
Themyscira: Returning Home
After dreaming about bringing Warrior Wonder Woman to life for years, this shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts feels like the zenith of the project. The setting was perfect, the weather beautiful, and the photographer - Andrew Ho - incredibly talented. I actually felt like an Amazon at home on Themyscira.

These are glorious.
The perfection of this cosplay always just makes be giddily happy every time I see it.
Many of you will be familiar with Meagan Marie’s cosplay of Warrior Wonder Woman.
Tumblr is a great source of images, and with so much vying for our attention at once it’s all too easy - and I speak from personal experience - to think wow that’s pretty and or strikingly handsome and or beautiful, maybe like or even reblog, but all to often just scroll on.
What I’ve missed at times, and what I’d like to share with you all is the consideration of, the thinking about, all the hard work involved in creating art - in this case Cosplay ( although the same thought is true for digital and traditional art ) it’s worth pausing, taking time for a second thought, and wonder at the genius that goes into a creative enterprise.
Here & more at her own site Meagan Marie gives us an insight into the creative process.
This was a dream project in every sense of the word. As is true for many, Wonder Woman was a first for me – the first female superhero I became aware of in the world of comics. She holds a really special place in my fandom, and while I love the stars, stripes, and satin tights of classic Wonder Woman, I’ve continuously returned to her Amazon origins. I’ve always pictured Diana as a warrior first and foremost, and wanted to bring my specific vision for her to life.
Really quick Wonda Woman cause when I’m stressed about art, I make MORE art.
And this totally wouldnt be cool as a movie. nope. Why would anyone want to see a badass , hot amazon woman beat the crap outta monsters and gods? Pft. that would be boring.
