Dwarven Wardrobe: Wonder Woman

Dwarven Wardrobe: Wonder Woman

I was able to acquire one of the “Wonder Woman” tiaras before their respective loot tables were removed from the game. (If you weren’t able to get one, I really feel for ya. It wasn’t easy for me either.) Next to Speedy Racer Goggles, this tiara is one of my most prized items in the game.

Wonder Woman eagle emblem and Speedy Racer goggles. This guy has everything he will ever need.

There is also a chestpiece (part of the Phoenix armor set), clearly inspired by Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman costume, but it’s never been available to players. You can see it on various NPCs, such as Dungar Longdrink. I was always disappointed (still am!) that I couldn’t wear this as well.

However, once I acquired the tiara, there really didn’t seem to be a lot of good transmog choices in the cloth bracket at the onset. I felt that the leather/mail/plate transmogs had better visuals, especially for the parts that were metal such as the golden bracelets and belt. So the star tiara collected dust in my virtual closet until a couple things happened.

One, Wonder Woman’s outfit was updated to better reflect her warrior background for the 2017 movie, moving away from the cheesecake swimsuit look, a change I definitely appreciated. (Don’t get me wrong, I do dig the iconic look, but it just wasn’t practical and really needed to evolve for modern times.) I especially liked that several of my transmog pieces were obtained via PvPing, which was befitting for an Amazon.

Two, in-game graphics got more polished over time, especially with the current Battle for Azeroth gear. Cloth pieces started to have metal incorporated into their armor (spiky shoulders, hip plates, metallic belts, and so on to name a few), which allowed me to put together a satisfying warrior transmog as a cloth wearer.

Here’s my current iteration of a cloth-based Wonder Woman cosplay. I’m hoping this look will continue to evolve over the years as more items get added to the game.
