DIY Wonder Woman Costume Accessories

In June, DC Comics finally got a winner with the release of Wonder Woman. The Gal Gadot-led superhero flick brought Diana Prince to life in a way we haven’t seen on the big screen in a long time. She showed off some girl power in more ways than one, and her suit looked like the coolest set of armor this side of Themyscira. With the upcoming release of Justice League setting the stage for another appearance for her on the big screen, she’s set up to kill it once again.

Wonder Woman costumes are sure to be a super popular choice for a Halloween this year, so if you’re going to tackle the Diana of Themyscira look, you’ll need to stand out. That’s why Wholesale Halloween Costumes put together this simple and easy to do DIY to take your costume to the next level! Wonder Woman is always accompanied with her shield, the Lasso of Truth, Bracelets of Submisison, her tiara and her armband. So make sure your look matches hers on the battlefield with these five DIY costume accessories!

Step 1. Cut out the template, as shown.

Step 2. Gently tape the top edge of the template to the sheet of leather. Place a piece of transfer paper between the template and the leather, making sure that the darker side of the transfer paper is face down on the leather. Trace the outside of the template, and all the inner lines using a ball point pen. Press hard as you trace, and lift the template occasionally to check that the lines are transferring to the leather.

Step 3. When you are done tracing, the gauntlet should be transferred to the leather. Cut out the gauntlet.

Step 4. Tear thin strips of duct tape, and tape them to the gauntlet, following the template lines, as shown. The duct tape will “mask” the leather and protect it from the spray paint.

Step 5. Spray paint the gauntlet silver and let dry.

Step 6. Gently pull the tape off the gauntlet, exposing the unpainted black leather.

Step 7. Paint the top and bottom lines with the gold epoxy. Leave the thin black lines unpainted.

Step 8. Let the epoxy dry to the touch. Then outline the gold areas with the black permanent marker. Add a few more black lines to accent the gauntlet and show possible battle damage.

Step 9. Using the scraps of left over leather, cut two strips that will be used to make straps for the gauntlet. Apply the adhesive Velcro to one edge of each strap.

Step 10. Size the gauntlet to fit your arm. Attach the Velcro to the gauntlet and straps on both sides and trim off any extra leather.
