Makers name: Alex Moore
The cosplay is Wonder Woman based on the 2017 DC movie version of her iconic look. The wig, bodice, skirt, arm bands, and leg pieces were all crocheted in only a week! The sword and shield were crocheted and knitted over three days and added to the cosplay later on. Normally, AlexIsCrafting mixes knitting and crocheting throughout her cosplays but she entirely crocheted Wonder Woman’s outfit to reinforce the armor/superhero look of the cosplay. The props are reinforced with cardboard and light wood for structure and then covered in yarn.
