We Are All Wonder Woman

There's been a lot of talk lately, in convention circles, about harassment.  In general, and specifically relating to the harassment faced by women who wear costumes, especially when their costume is from a character with whom they do not share body type/race/age etc.

And this sucks, and is wrong.

So a bunch of us are dressing as Wonder Woman on Sunday at Norwescon.  Because all of us, no matter our dress size, are Wonder Woman. 

Wonder Woman, over the years, has had many incarnations.  Likewise, all of us who are Wonder Woman are different people.  One person is doing a very sparkly, corset-ed version; someone else is going the Steampunk route. 

While I do wear costumes at Norwescon, I am generally a jeans-and-t-shirt girl.  So here's my Wonder Woman costume - jeans and a t-shirt. 

Because even though I'm not in a shiny leotard, I am still Wonder Woman.

And if anyone else would like to join us in dressing as Wonder Woman at Norwescon, please feel free to do so.
