JustaLottaTanya.com Cosplay

Hello all, I got an email from Tanya who does some cosplay and runs JustaLottaTanya.com. She sent a pic of herself in the oft-forgotten Cathy Lee Crosby costume while she was at SDCC.


Excellent job, I think. Go check her site out sometime. Sadly, I have not been yet, as work frowns on much of my website decisions, no matter how SFW they are.

Another Wonder Woman fan movie

Rileah Vanderbilt is one of those cosplayers that just doesn't play Wonder Woman, but she really has the role down.  She looks the part and there is a certain quality she brings that makes her portrayal unique.

Here she is in a short Wonder Woman fan film.

Again, WB/DC what is the big mystery here?

SDCC 2013 Valerie Perez Edition

Valerie Perez is a top tier cosplayer.  Not only does she rock the outfits you can also tell she is having a great time.  I have seen pictures of her with little kids where you know that little kid is thinking "I just met Zatanna!" or "I just met Wonder Woman!"

Also check out my Other Side blog today for some of her great Zatanna cosplay too!

SDCC 2013 Wonder Woman Cosplay

If you follow my Zatannurday posts over at the Other Side you know I have been featuring some cosplayers from San Diego Comic Con.  Well there were a lot of Wonder Women this year!  Good for them and and good for us.

So many in fact I'll have to break this up into a few posts.






Of course if these are your pictures and you want them removed just send us a note.

Happy Birthday Lynda Carter!!

A touch late I know, but as they say...

Happy Birthday to the woman that so defined Wonder Woman that we still can get out of her shadow.

Another Wonder Woman Fan movie

While Warner is going on and on about how a Wonder Woman film is a priority, the fans are make due with what they have.  Fortunately some of those fans are also pretty talented.

Here is a fan short, First Impressions, featuring Wonder Woman out on a date.

Click here to watch on YouTube.

Thanks to The Mary Sue and Nerd Approved for this link.

My only gripe. Diana should have been taller, but Hailey Bright is really good.

Warner Bros: 'Wonder Woman is one of top three priorities'

From: http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/news/a499310/warner-bros-wonder-woman-is-one-of-top-three-priorities.html?rss#ixzz2ZQJB5gCd
Warner Bros has promised that Wonder Woman is "one of the top three priorities" in its DC Comics project.
DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson has said that they are keen to get the character "right".

"We have to get her right, we have to," she told The Hollywood Reporter. "She is such an icon for both genders and all ages and for people who love the original TV show and people who read the comics now.

"I think one of the biggest challenges at the company is getting that right on any size screen. The reasons why are probably pretty subjective -she doesn't have the single, clear, compelling story that everyone knows and recognises.

"There are lots of facets to Wonder Woman, and I think the key is, how do you get the right facet for that right medium?

"What you do in TV has to be different than what you do in features. She has been, since I started, one of the top three priorities for DC and for Warner Bros. We are still trying right now, but she's tricky."

Nelson had earlier listed her top five film adaptations. The list included Sandman, Fables, Metal Men, Justice League and Aquaman but not Wonder Woman.

A Wonder Woman television series called Amazon has been in development at CW. The project is believed to still be in the works despite not making the fall 2013 cut.

And because I can here is a pic of Wonder Woman as she appears on the small screen.

Wonder Woman + Superman

I have not talked much about the Wonder Woman and Superman pairing in the new 52 comics yet.  I might have to do that.

In the mean time here is a pic that I really liked and wanted to share.
Christopher Reeves' Superman and Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman.  Great match if you ask me.

New Wonder Woman cartoon on DC Nation

DC Nation is trying to win back my trust after last seasons cancellations of Young Justice and Green Lantern (which was getting better). While I am not excited about Beware the Batman there is this:





It is a different take but I love the cool 70s funkiness to it. The Invisible Car is a nice touch too.

Wonder Woman The Cliffs of Insanity

Geekmom has a very insightful article on the current state of affairs for Wonder Woman and it is certainly a worthy read.

http://geekmom.com/2013/06/the-cliffs-of-insanity-wonder-woman/

She makes a lot of good points.

While I don't have an issue with the Wonder Woman/Superman relationship per se, history has shown that DC is a.) going to mess it up and b.) reset it anyway.  I am a little shocked that Wonder Woman has never had a second title before.

Kingdom Come: Fan Made Trailer

The fan-made trailer for Kingdom Come is now up.  Wonder Woman features rather prominently.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vchOGKIlUnA

Go to their Facebook page to let them know what you thought!

Personally I think it looks great.  They were true to the comic and they really brought it to life.
My only complete is I would have liked to have seen more Batman.

Celtic Wonder Woman

What if instead of being born to Ancient Greeks, Wonder Woman was born to the Ancient Celts?  Instead of "beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, as strong as Hercules, and as swift as Hermes" she was "brave as Morrigan, wise as Merlin, beautiful as Brigid, and fast a CĂș Chulainn"?

You might end up with this:

Superman - Doomsday fan made film feat. Wonder Woman

and some nut job in a bat suit. ;)
Thanks to Calvin and his Cave of Cool for this one!

Best to watch these in full screen mode.





Once again Warner this is not hard stuff. Find a good story and make it into a movie.  Dude with computers are doing it all the time.

I love Wonder Woman's entrance into battle in the last movie. Rhona Mitra makes for a fantastic Wonder Woman.

What I like about this is the love and attention put into it by a fan for the fans.  If you don't know the Superman Doomsday story then you might be a little lost, but even then this is great.  Superman battles a giant monster, dies. Batman and Wonder Woman "move in" to Metropolis to kick it's ass.

For the record I LOVED the Superman/Batman back story implied here.

If you have 30 mins, take the time to watch this.

Dear WB/DC. What is so hard about this?

A great fan-made Wonder Woman fan trailer making the rounds today.


Female Super Hero Fan Film from Jesse V. Johnson on Vimeo.

Makes me wonder how/why DC and WB can't get it right?
