I always said I was influenced by live action superheroes. So I thought I would start paying tribute to the sexy super heroines on a weekly basis. I would like to start with one that is the earliest I can remember seeing and one that probably has had the most impact on my cosplaying. Wonder Woman - Lynda Carter.
Ironically, I don't ever plan on cosplaying as Lynda's Wonder Woman. Because, I'm not brunette and I don't like wigs, LOL. And while I don't mind altering costumes to suit me, I still want to keep within the spirt of the character. A blonde Lynda Carter Wonder Woman is kind of like a pink Hulk.
Wonder Woman began it's run on television in 1975 and starred the beautiful Lynda Carter in the iconic role. I actually got to meet Lynda and she is still very lovely. Lynda was the first woman I saw wear a costume out of the comics (I don't really count Ursa from Superman II) and it fascinated me. Those bright bold colours, it was brilliant. She brought that costume to life and that was something I always wanted to do, and did years later when I started to cosplay.
So Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman is my Sexy Superhero of the week.
