Monday Morning Mirth

OK. Even though we’re all about the concrete runway on the streets of Chicago, it’s something that we saw on the streets of L.A. that got us thinking overtime! Somebody’s getting a retread, a reboot on the video landscape and the ink wasn’t even dry on the press releases before people started FUSSING.

Right – that’s the Internet for ya, you might say, where even the most innocuous thing you post online might be clobbered by a million and one hatchets, but THIS my friends is important!

For cripes sakes, it’s Wonder Woman! And the brouha is her shiny, shiny pants…

On the left you see her original outfit for the new series, by superhero producer David Kelley, whose pilot is shooting right now. After the announce and release of this shot, fans of the original comic went ballastic!

Even though, if you remember the original TV program had WonWom running around in nothing more than a vegas-style bathing suit, and this one actually looked more like what she wore in the pages of the comics, it was those pants that set off the bombs!

Blue vinyl stirrups in high heel boots!

Now this is something I see on a regular basis at my local grocery store (the stirrups in the high-heel shoe thing, oeuf!) but what caused me more of a head desk moment was the nature of the material used in the said pant-ses.

Pardon me, Mr. Kelly, but Ms. WonWom is an Action Hero. She runs, jumps and delivers karmic justice (mostly with her brass bracelets but I digress) and even your film crew might have to deal with the star collapsing during a hot street shoot in those vinyl klingons.

So, either bending to the public outcry (or maybe some day-after road rash!) we see on the right, WonWom in sensible cloth pants (and low boots)! Thank you! Now would you please do something about that top because it is painful to look at…

And, to all the venting armchair comic book heroes everywhere, I suggest you do what I did: go to the store, buy the makeup, go to the convention and have a day!
