Celebrity Women Dressed As Wonder Woman

There's absolutely no doubt that Wonder Woman has become such an iconic figure in pop culture for various reasons. Her character is not only the model for female beauty, but the ultimate symbol for female empowerment.
  
Even some of the most famous celebrities have succumbed to the allure of the most famous female comic hero icon ever. Here are the ones with enough moxie to dress up as Wonder Woman, especially since Lynda Carter put an unrivaled stamp on the character's look.

This post showcases some celebrities who have dressed up as Wonder Woman. If you're looking for Wonder Woman costumes, please click the link to see some super cool looking WW costumes and discover where to get one!

 Emily Deschanel as Wonder Woman

One of the best ever to don the Wonder Woman costume, besides Lynda Carter, was Emily Deschanel in the T.V. series Bones season 3, episode 5 "Mummy in the Maze".

In an interview for IGN, Emily was more than okay about dressing up as Wonder Woman for the Halloween themed episode when Bones executive producer, Hart Hanson, asked her about it. In fact, Emily said, "I already have the costume." Apparently, her family had given her a Wonder Woman costume as a gift years prior to wear for Halloween.

No, the Wonder Woman costume she wears in Bones is not the costume her family gave her. For the show, they made four costumes for her, and she looks absolutely remarkable.  So remarkable, in fact, that I chose her as one of the top celebrities who could play Wonder Woman, because she resembles the famed female comic character so much.

Emily admits that she grew up watching the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman 1970s TV series. So, did I, Emily! So did I, and I think you would've made the comic book character's creator, William Moulton Marston, quite proud!

It's no surprise that the former T.V. show host of Attack of the Show, a show devoted to video games, on the G4 network is on here, and it's no surprise that she would dress up as Wonder Woman. The self-proclaimed geek is quite beautiful and even more alluring in the famed Wonder Woman costume.

Munn's citizenship to the land of Geekdom is often debated in the world of Geekdom. Some believe her carefully crafted sexy geek image makes her a terrible representative for geeks. Some even put her in the category of "fake geek girls".

Uh, whatever. I, personally, don't have a carefully crafted test to determine what a true geek is or not, and I didn't think there was a prerequisite.

All I know is that here at Total Comic Mayhem, Olivia Munn is more than welcome. And that includes all geeks of varying degrees!

Even in Australia, many cannot the resist the allure and essence of the comic book character Wonder Woman.  

Australian model, Miranda Kerr, showed props to the female comic book heroine in a photo shoot for Grazia Magazine. Absolutely gorgeous, but I do have to admit the costume needs a bit of work.

Stunning Rhona Mitra dressed up in a Wonder Woman costume is definitely something that I wouldn't miss. The English actress who played the lead character Sonja in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans definitely wears the Wonder Woman outfit quite well.


As for her possibly playing the role in a future Wonder Woman movie or even the Justice League movie slated for 2015, who knows? She could be a pretty cool choice.

However, I just think it's cool that she chose to dress up as the iconic female comic book superhero for Halloween. For that, she gets extra cool points.


  Kim Kardashian Wonder Woman Costume

It's funny how the public outside of Geekdom responds when a huge reality T.V. celebrity decides to get her geek on and dresses up in a Wonder Woman costume. All the sudden you have people who would never even think to dress up as Wonder Woman for Halloween or any kind of event looking for where they can get the Kim Kardashian Wonder Woman costume.

More pics of Kim Kardashian as Wonder Woman Wonder Woman's got back. Well, at least when Kim Kardashian is in the outfit. 

Not really digging the black tights, but I give Kim Kardashian props. Like I said before, it takes moxie to dress up as Wonder Woman, and I think she looks just fine in the costume. She doesn't pull it off as badly as some haters have reported.

Besides, CosPlay should be all about fun, and I give kudos to any female - famous or not - who dons the costume of one of my all-time favorite female comic superheroes.


 Kelly Cuoco As Wonder Woman

In season 4, episode 6 of the T.V. series The Big Bang Theory, the cast dressed up as well-known DC Comic characters. Although, a blonde, Kelly Cuoco's character, Penny, sports a sexy Wonder Woman costume.

I must say Kelly pulls it off quite well, but I do have to admit that she looks better as a blonde.

Kris Jenner in Wonder Woman Costume

Like daughter like mother! It seems that Kris Jenner liked her daughter Kim Kardashian's Wonder Woman costume that mom had to go out and get one of her own.

While those make a big fuss about her released picture, I'm gonna say the opposite about the matter. The fact that Kris Jenner is 57 and still looks good enough to don a Wonder Woman costume and look spectacular in it deserves kudos.

All I can say is I hope my wife looks that good at that age, despite plastic surgery or a boob job.


Well, there you are...the celebrity women who have dressed up as one of comics most iconic and beloved female superhero characters ever and paid homage to her. I salute them and anyone else whom has done so.

There's no doubt that Wonder Woman has become a symbol of female empowerment and a positive role model for many females for 72 years starting next year. I can only hope that the character of Wonder Woman and her legacy continues to live on
