A long time heroine in the DC comic books, Wonder Woman makes the jump to the television screen in hour long episodes of this weekly series. Wonder Woman is a member of a group known as Amazons that lives on Paradise Island that journeys to America to fight evil and injustice wherever it is found. When she is not dressed in the red, white and blue costume that makes for a spectacular sight wherever she is, the heroine is in her other identity as Diana Prince, a conservatively dressed woman who no one knows is secretly Wonder Woman.
For the first season of the series, it is set during World War II times and Wonder Woman faces foes common to the era such as Nazi saboteurs and spies. Upon the start of the second season, the series is set in present day times with a slightly different costume for the heroine but the goal of defeating evil in the name of truth, love and mankind remains the same.
The lead role of Diana/Wonder Woman was played by Lynda Carter, a relatively unknown actress at the time. However, her energy and vitality in the role made it a role that she is still remembered for to this day. With Lyle Waggoner in the role of Steve Trevor and a host of great guest stars that appeared regularly, Wonder Woman is a series that a viewer is sure not to forget! (courtesy of tvrage.com)
This is a Wonder Woman costume I purchased on 04/26/2011 through an online auction on Ebay. This awesome costume includes the top and shorts, belt, tiara, Lasso of Truth, boots, earrings, and double sided star spangled-sequined cape. The only piece of the costume that is missing which didn't come with the original purchase was the Bullet Proof Bracelets. The private seller had stated that this was comissioned by the same clothier whom goes by the business name of Creations by Pooh (Don Hood). The seller stated that this is the same individual whom created the replica Lynda Carter Wonder Woman costume displayed and owned by Andy Mangels whom is the original owner of the Wonder Woman mannequin and uses it as well for charitable events to promote women's rights and the prevention of domestic violence and is the founder of Women of Wonder Day which raises charity funds through social events.
The original costume created for the display mannequin was referenced by one of the original TV costumes whom the owner also allowed it to be photographed and patterns traced from the original costume design. I don't quite know the mesurements for this costume but the original seller did state that the boots are a size 10 and that he had intended to display this costume on a mannequin as well. As far as measurements are concerned I can only state that the measurements would appear to be the same ones as the measurements for the original costume made for the charity mannequin display.
At this point in time, I am in the process of speaking with Andy Mangels whom is more than gracious enough to try and provide me with a letter of authenticity to validate that this costume is indeed a creation from Don Hood. I have sent Andy many pictures of the costume and he states that it does appear to be the work of Don Hood and as soon as I can locate the original owners name he will be able to verify and write me a LOA to show this to be a copy of the mannequin costume.
