Our critiques follow, and be sure to check out the full post to see the runners up!
Alex: This was the only piece I gave a perfect 10. I really enjoyed everything about it. She still looks like a woman, even though she's 90% covered up. The high-collar/shoulder/chest armor simply makes sense, and I appreciate that it ties in well with the belt and bracelets. Speaking of that belt, nice inclusion of the logo!
Let's talk about that bottom half. Pants done right, in my opinion, and a brilliant way of including the traditional stars. I love the star-zipper boots, and the inclusion of the red is inspired. It's a fine way of keeping things from getting monotonous and allows the pants and boots to stand out, rather than bleed into one another. The only thing I'm not 100% sold on are the high heels (based on practicality issues), but everything else is so spot on, I can easily let it go.
Mitch: This is a nice costume. It's got nice solid colors, it's got a warrious feel without losing the superhero charm, which I believe to be a big thing about Wonder Woman. The pants are very well done and look great with the sash above it and nice boots. My nitpicks are few. That collar? Love it but for a person who uses mobility as well as Wonder Woman does, a tight fitting collar might get in the way. Maybe it was a little
shorter? And I've never liked WW in heels.
Chantaal: I absolutely love this one. I'm not so sure about the heels from a practical standpoint, but the rest of it is incredibly sleek and eyecatching. I love the star spangled pants, the high boots, the little sash with the Wonder Woman logo on the front. The colors are also great, especially on the boots, I love the red swirls on them, makes things interesting and catches the eye.
Dee: This is actually my favourite of the top 5 redesigns. I love the pants/sash combo, and how the w traditionally over her chest has been incorporated into her collar/neck piece. It's very modern, and yet sleek and attractive as well.
Angel: I like this one a lot. I think the coloring is one of my favorite parts of it, because it manages to mix a darker crimson with the more traditional normal red. The pants are probably my favorite part of it, because the stars kind of pull everything together, I think. The boots worry me a little, if only because I'm not sure how easy it'd be to move in ones that come above the knee like these do, but I love both the swirls and the coloring.
Lina: I love this one, I do. It was one of my favourites out of the originals. Sure the heels are a little impractical but it makes sense to me. A great colour scheme and the trousers seems very modern and practical at the same time. Plus I love the neck piece.
Ashley: I really liked this design. Like y'all, the boots worry me a bit in functionality but then again Wonder Woman's boots typically do have a bit of a heel so that part doesn't bother me as much as the height of them. I just think thigh high boots in general wouldn't work well for superheroines. I also really love the color schemes and that it's not bright in your face but a deeper shade of blue and crimson. While I'm not a huge fan of pants on Wonder Woman, I do like the stars on these pants. My favorite part might be the WW on the belt/sash.
