This lolita interpretation of Wonder Woman is both whimsy and surreal; there is a striking balance between adorable and creepy in this look, quite similar to Junko Mizuno’s work. While I can’t imagine Diana ever wearing this ensemble herself (or any lolita redesign of the classic Wondy costume, per se), I really love the combination of Wonder Woman’s signature costume with lolita fashion. Although this bold color combo deviates from the primary color wheel of the standard lolita wardrobe, it actually works with the frilly detailing (particularly, the golden yellow trim on the blouse and the star-spangled layered skirt) to create a statement ensemble that’s audaciously cute.
The ensemble is topped off with the scalloped tiara headband and the golden satin ribbon of truth, punctuating this outfit with a clever translation of Wonder Woman’s key weapons as lolita accessories.
I spotted this dress on sale in the little girl’s section of H&M the other day, and I was vaguely reminded of Kim Pine’s gothic lolita dress, as seen in Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness and in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (seen below):
While the H&M dress isn’t quite gothic lolita per se, nor an exact replica of Kim’s dress, it pulls some key elements from the style (i.e. the babydoll cut and the lace accents) that can easily blend into a more casual look. Unfortunately, since this dress was in little girl’s sizes (I tried on a 14+ YO), it wasn’t the most flattering of cuts, but I figured that it was worth sharing for those of you who are looking for a break from your skirts and track jackets :)

You know, despite the styling differences between the members, Sex Bob-omb does still manage to look like a coordinated unit.
