    I agree.

    I still would prefer to see something much closer to the current comic look, although I'll grant that it wasn't particularly well received there.

    The biggest difference is an even darker top (looks to be closer to wine in the comic) and much darker pants (could be black leather on screen). The top in the sketch still seems to be shiny, but it's more metallic shiny than vinyl shiny.

    I hope the plots are better. The original WW show was too much Wonder Woman doing what men told her to do. I remember being disappointed. I like the Xena type of heroine better.

    The pilot script has been floating around for a while now. Apparently you can find it online if you look for it. It is reputed to be legendarily bad.

    My only complaint about the new TV costume is that the boots should be red.

    All in all, it IS Wonder Woman's costume, only with long pants, which a lot of fans have thought they should try anyway. Even the shade of blue is good.

    Don't really think the red stars should be there, tho'. Still, a nice compromise and it's so close, it'll fly. The only question is, will she?

    I agree it looks better with red boots. The only problem with comparing with a comic book drawing is that you really can't get as good of a feel for the material that makes up the costume.

    I wonder if the pic was released to get reaction to the suit. It's been panned more than praised in the comments that I have seen so I wonder if they will make any changes to it.

    I wish the costume were cloth & leather based rather than vinyl. Otherwise, I've got no problems with it.

    That's better than what's currently out there but she shouldn't be wearing pants. Back to the drawing board!

    How they managed to make the gorgeous Adrienne Palicki look terrible I'll never know. I can only imagine that she'll look better when the show starts, but this is not a good beginning. Changing the boots to red and toning down her lipstick would help a bit.

    I've never seen her before so I had to do a google image search after reading this thread and I totally agree with you. What did they do to her? Is it her lips that make her look totally different/bad?

    Not in an invisible plane, but the pilot script specifies that she owns six BMW single-occupant planes, plus her company's "Boeing Airbus."

    Hmmm

    I will say I would not be averse to her putting on a "fashion show" for us. :)

    Wow. Is the script really written that badly?

    I would prefer her to wear short pants (ala Daisy Duke)

    Tyra Collete doesn't look anything like the Adrian in the picture a few posts up.

    Not that she isn't fine. But it's a really different look.

    Oh, my, yes. Some friends and I did a dramatic reading around the dining room table a few weeks ago. We were cringing throughout.
