I’m guessing this photo was taken in 2001. My mom helped with the crown and wristbands, but I did everything else. Cut out the eagle from a piece of gold lame, thrifted the skirt and bought the stars from a craft store, glued ’em on, bought the gold rope and strung it on my belt loop.
WHY oh WHY did I get rid of this costume? When I was about 5, Mom made me a Wonder Woman costume. I wore it to nursery school. Like I wore it to nursery school every single day she’d let me until it fell apart. Clearly, there should be a homemade Wonder Woman costume in my life at all times, just in case.
I think I’ll start accumulating the pieces now so I can wear it next year. For Halloween. And also just because.
