Great Hera! You're a Wonder, Woman.

Merciful Minerva! Round up those bombshells, because we're doing pin-ups today, Wonder Woman style.  

Wonder Woman has always been a bit of a mystery to me.  I admit, I never got into her story line, but the overall look and obvious power of Princess Diana has always appealed to me.  I stumbled across a few photos of a Wonder Woman-inspired pin-up dress, and I immediately fell in love.  Of course, that had me hunting for other retro Wonder Woman get-ups, and what I found was amazingness across the board.  I had to share it with all of you.

This was the dress that started my search. It's elegant, fun, and beautiful, perfectly capturing the pin-up era Wonder Woman:

Created by designer, , the 1950s dress was handmade in Orlando, Florida.  According to the shopkeeper:
Inspired by the Amazing Wonder Woman with a 1950's Flare. Great for everyday, cosplay, halloween, themed parties or pin up inspired events!  To Include:

1950's inspired Dress
Fully Styled Wig with Victory Rolls & Wonder Woman Hairpin
Wonder Woman =W= Necklace
Adjustable Gold Belt
Wonder Woman Striped 1950's Vintage Pumps (these are authentic vintage pieces)
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. At the time of this writing, there was only 1 available, so hurry!  You can purchase it here for $280.00. 

 This next dress isn't one I found on Etsy, but I fell in love anyway.

Available from UK retailers KooKee Boutique, this dress is available in multiple sizes.  It doesn't ship to the US, so if you've got friends abroad, you may want to ping them to purchase.  The dress is available here for £54.00.

Another Etsy creation, my favorite kind, this Wonder Woman apron will have you feeling your inner Amazonian Betty Crocker.  Shopowner writes,

We're going to go a little on the campy side now with this spandex Wonderwoman Cosplay outfit.

I couldn't complete this post without adding something for the beach bunny Wonder Woman: 

According to designer ,
