This project toke me 3 weeks of work but it was totally worth. It came up really cool and I’m proud of sharing with you all.

Step 1: Molding Your Body

Use plastic and tape to mold your body.

Step 2: Starting the Corset

Cut the plastic mold inspired in the outfit, use the cut parts to draw in rubber or EVA, cut the parts and glue it together, I used E5000. However it is not as strong as I expected. However double the quantity of glue used helped a lot.

Step 3: Apply Gold Paint.

Hang the corset and apply permanent gold paint on it. Let it dry at least one hour before touching it. Read the paint instructions and follow it.
You don’t want the colors wearing out after one use.

Step 4: Carve the Helmet.

Carve the helmet in a Styrofoam bike helmet, sand paper it, and add EVA for the final details.
You may also have to carve the styrofoam inside the helmet to adjust perfectly to your head.

Step 5: Apply Gesso on the Helmet

Apply gesso mixed with school glue on the helmet let it dry, sand paper it a apply gold paint.
If the gesso cracks after dry you may need to apply a second hand and sand paper it again.

Step 6: Wings

Cut the wing pieces in EVA, place it together and glue it.
The quantity and size of the pieces will depend of how big you want it.
Use Straps for the arms. I recycled straps and buckle from a used backpack.

Step 7: Paint the Wings.

Paint the wings with gold paint and apply silver office pins for detailing.
Remember using a permanent paint.
Use metallic tones for a better efect.
Don’t forget to let it dry properly.

Step 8: Get a Gold Body Suit

Buy a gold body suit, cut the rubber pieces for the legs armor, paint with gold paint and glue it with fabric what her proof Permanent glue.
You also can order a printed one on Internet if you want it more similar to the One Gal Gadot uses in the Wonder Woman 1984 movie.
I wanted mine more original to my style so I did opt for styling a gold jumpsuit.

Step 9: Try on Often

Try it on your costume to make sure it fits properly and doesn’t need alterations.
The rubber expand a little bit be careful for not ripping it of creating cracks on the painting.

Step 10: Photo-shoot It With a Professional Photographer
