Wonder Woman Costume

As a kid I spent countless hours spinning on the playground with my best friend pretending to be Diana Prince transforming into Wonder Woman. I always wanted to dress up as her for Halloween but alas, no such luck. I tell myself that the '70s version would have involved an uncomfortable plastic face mask complete with condensation. When I saw electrical tape costumes featured in a craft magazine, I knew exactly which superhero I wanted to create.

Unroll the tape to measure how much you'll need, rather than cutting first. 

You may need to remove a piece that is too small.

And replace with a longer piece.

Go back and adjust the angles of your wing tips.

Trim the ends to create a curve.

Sketch in the head.


  1. Awesome! I love your blog, Sophia!

  3. Where did you purchase the yellow tape? I have looked all over for it and come up empty handed.

    1. Orchard Supply Hardware--sorry for the late response!

  4. I have seen GREAT tape at tapebrothers.com (they have the smaller rolls). ducttapebrother.com is cool too, for crafting. :)

  5. LOve this idea- I used gold duct tape- a bit stickier- but worked~ Thanks

    1. The instructions mentioned electrical. you could probably use duct tape as well

  7. Hi Sophia,

    I'm writing a piece for New Jersey Family Magazine's website on DIY Wonder Woman costumes and I would love to feature your Wonder Woman costume in my article. We would feature an image and link it back to your blog so that readers can find full instructions on your website.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
