Wonder Woman Costume Revised for TV Pilot

Filming for the pilot of the new Wonder Woman show has begun and photo from the set has emerged.

Earlier this month we got a glimpse of Adrianne Palicki in her costume for the new TV series being developed by David E. Kelley. The bustier definitely showed off Palicki's upper chest region, which gave some pause, but most of the criticism leveled at the costume was the shiny latex pants and the weird matching blue boots. A photo of Palicki in costume as Wonder Woman from the set of the pilot now reveals a revised costume that, while still boobalicious, at least doesn't quite look so trashy.

The pants are no longer shiny spandex - and hopefully no longer squeak every step she takes - and the boots have gone to a more pleasing cherry red.

The whole getup is a far cry from the original costume occupied by Linda Carter in the show from the seventies, and is miles away from the short flowing skirt made famous from Wonder Woman's first appearance in January 1942's Sensation Comics.

Personally, I think the show should use the rebooted comic imagery that cast the Amazon woman hero in a more modern outfit, but that's probably just me.

Aahhhhhhhhhhh Much better.
That first one was so loud that the first time I saw it, I think I went deaf for about five seconds.

A much needed revision. I might actually watch now.

I can't tell the difference.

That's better. I still think the red corset/bustier should be leather though.

Not sure about this facebook system. Am i double posting?

Yeah this is much better. She wears pants on occasion in the comic book, too. Its not like they gave her a leather jacket and a motorcycle, or something. Its pretty much the same.

Wont change the writing, of course. But if the pictures are indictative of the show, it might be good. Running in the street, possible to punch a terrorist or a car? Sounds like wonder woman to me.

I can only hope they keep the " Amazonian learning American ways" angle, not "ally mcbeal becomes a superhero" direction it might go.

FOUND A VIDEO!

This gives me a small hope for the show. She looks tough, and i hope she smashes the crap out of him when she catches him, lol

Wow. I'm surprised the producers actually listened and changed the costume.

A step in the right direction. Now she looks less... hookerery.
Though I still wont be happy till shes wearing the star covered panties.

Yes, much less squeaky.

it's an improvement. It doesn't scream "SPENCERS CLEARANCE RACK" anymore

Hmm...

I didn't hate the original design they had going, but I feel this is certainly an improvement.

I especially like the stars going down the side of the pants, that's a nice touch.

I think I speak for my entire gender (and a portion of the other gender) when I say: Daaaaaaayum!

It still kinda looks silly but it looks much better then the reflective shinny version. Oh well, we'll have to see how it actually looks in the show.

The show description I read here still sounded a little meh, but these pants are definitely better. Though if they market that previous one as a deluxe Halloween costume... well you won't hear any complaints from me when I see a girl rockin' it. Just sayin.

Better... but I still don't really care so much. >_>

Better, but it still seems... off, perhaps it's just me.

Here's hoping for a 90's adventure show, and not another post-Lost evening drama. The costume -- both versions, actually -- are a sign that the show may not be taking itself quite as deathly serious as most recent shows. I mean, I actually liked Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, because underneath all the dick jokes was a campy action show in the vein of Hercules and Xena, which is something that I for one severely miss. America could use a little bit more hope in its TV, and a bit less doom and gloom; there's plenty of hopeful BBC shows, but almost nothing from the American networks.

So true. It's nice to see that the show's honchos actually heard the complaints and listened to them. Also, she looks quite cute in this outfit. More so in fact than in the trashier latex number.

This was a big complaint of mine in the 90's and early 2000's. I used to specifically cite how Herc and Xena were better shows than the waves and waves of crime dramas and stale singles in spectacular big city apartment shows. I've noticed though that network TV is getting a little more "nerdy" since about 2005 or so? Is that what I want? In a good way. I guess it reflects the general culture but television being made now actually reminds me of the programs produced in the 70's.

I think a big difference has been made by the fact that in the more recent show she's not wearing such bright lipstick. That combined with all the shiny latex in the previous shot gave her an unfairly...uh...inflatable..look, and in the more recent one she looks much more like a person and less like a doll. =)

Nerf Ninja:

I would agree (or make it a similar material to the pants) and the belt looks fuck awful. The boots should be leather too.

It still looks like crap, that clip looks even worse.

Meh, I still like her DCAU costume better, but this is a marked improvement.

I love the pants, but I think the boots and the top are stupid-shiny. They just look fake, moreso than the belt.

Wow that looks far far better. I felt sorry for her if she had to run around in those plastic pants.

It's a move in the right direction. I still don't think it's a good costume, but some progress is better than none.

Maybe they've use the/a Jacket like that in during some sort of Stakeout or Oddly Cold Night Other than that It's really just a few alterations of any Wonder Woman look. (Outside of having pants)

As for no mentioning the top before I guess you could say at least isn't as bad (or good depending on point of view[Not like that.])as Lulu's....

Lulu from Final Fantasy X not Little Lulu.

As a fan of shiny latex pants I'm shocked and appalled.

Incidentally, what is Moby doing running along the tops of cars?

Dammit! get rid of the pants!
No one wants a wonder woman who wears pants!
Get a bikini on her or at least a skirt/dress.

Ah, that's much better.

This still won't help the show not be shit.

Yureina:

Honey, you never care for anything.

Rei=Cold.

I disagree.

The Pants is better in my option, much more pratical. Sure, she invincible in damn near everything, but I perfer that she look like she having fun, not going to the beach.

I think it should be somewhat believable that Wonder Woman's clothing should be something an Amazonian (er... greco-roman) demigod would wear. Because that's what Wonder Woman essentially is. Dressing her up like a stripper in shiny latex pants doesn't make sense for the character... and it also looks cheesy.

The revision to the TV costume is better, but still not quite appropriate for who the character is supposed to be. The new comic revision, at least the image in this article's gallery, seems to actually be a step in the right direction.

Yes. The makeup change is definitely another source of improvement.

Too much clothes.

Good. I think that it´s a good compromise between the comics version of the costume and a more practical one. Glad to know the producers are listening to the fans.
