I like how it's clearly Dark Phoenix, even in B&W, Marc.

Dear Everybuddy,

Below is a drawing of Wonder Woman that I did earlier today - I was not focused so much on the rendering as I was on designing a "new" costume for her.  A costume based on various elements, by various Wonder Woman artists over the decades - BUT, not a mish-mash, I hope... I tried to select various elements I thought looked good AND worked together.  

I would be interested in your honest opinions on it.

Please note: 

The Tiara (it doesn't go all the way around her head, so I am going with calling it a tiara, not a headband) is George Perez' redesign for the post-Crisis reboot

The bracelets are JB

The belt is JB (from his Elseworlds Wonder Woman)

The single line of stars pattern on the shorts are me... however, if anyone has seen this done on past Wonder Woman costumes, I am happy to concede it must have slipped into my subconcious.)

Marc,

I really like the detail of the line of stars tracing the contour of the belt band. Visually, it works for me.

Perez's headband design was great, and it looks good here, but I have to say, if there was an an element of Perez's costume that I would want to keep it would be the WW on the chest, which I thought worked fantastically.

Not particularly fond of the pointed bracelets (sorry, JB!). If it were down to me, the change I would make with the bracelets would be to make them gold not silver.

I do think I prefer the down-pointing V of the belt. Not a fan of the upward-pointing belt unless it meets the chest symbol.

Still, overall the costume looks just like Wonder Woman. Which means it passes the litmus test.

Peter,

Thank you for your feedback!  I chose the eagle emblem because for nostalgic reasons.  However, in addition to some people preferring the double-W, I am SURE the marketing people at DC would insist on some version of the double-W on Wonder Woman's costume.
