Understanding why super hero costumes can only exist in comic books


Thankless job of the week. Trying to pull off a Wonder Woman costume for a television show.

How unwonderful.

Why it won't work... read Michael Chabon's unitard theory in the New Yorker.

  1. this is fantastic. it totally goes with my argument that the comic book super hero movie needed cgi more than any other genre in order to make things seem real. tv costumes just never cut it...
