I actually meant to start writing this post a few days ago (I saved a draft of the title,) but thanks to the news that Wonder Woman and Superman will be romantically involved in the New 52, I was reminded that I should go ahead and write this post.
I have yet to actually take time to read any of the New 52 comics, but I plan on making a trip to the comic store this weekend or sometime early next week. I always knew from watching The Justice League that Wonder Woman could be be a flirty when bantering with Superman, but I always knew that her and Batman had some type of brief fling (or at least they flirted a few times.) Plus, as evidence in the video below, Batman didn’t seem to keen on the idea of dating someone on the JL team.
So how will this relationship with Superman and Wonder Woman turn out? Hmm…who knows. Guess I will have to start reading the New 52 and follow the story closely. I’ll give you my thoughts on that once I actually start reading the new comics.
Alright, so now to the purpose of this post. Wonder Woman. Everyone who comes into contact with me
My Wonder Woman Items
shortly finds out that I’m obsessed with all things Wonder Woman. I’m basically 5’11 1/2 (more like 6ft, but the 1/2 counts!) I’ve always been tall and quite confident, as well as a little geeky and a fan of superheroes (I’m a gamer, so it shouldn’t be too big of surprise I like superheroes.)
Anytime I get the chance to purchase anything Wonder Woman related, I don’t skip a beat. I’m just so in love with what she represents, and if I ever got a tattoo it would probably be a Wonder Woman logo (I’m so serious.) But of course, not tattoos in the near future for me, so I just stick to collecting Wonder Woman memorabilia.
I’m not even where I’d like to be when it comes to starting a collection (I’d need a job to seriously start putting money aside to feed my obsession.) But I’ve got some cool stuff so far, and I even plan on buying a custom-made Wonder Woman costume for Halloween from Etsy. I can’t wait!!!!! Oh, and have you seen the custom-made Wonder Woman heels? My oh my, sign me up for a pair! They come in any size, all you do is send your shoes in and she will custom make the shoe. Pretty cool, right? And another girl on Etsy has custom-made shoes as well up to size 11. I rock an 11-12, so I might consider buying her pair as well. But I like the ones below. Click here to check the seller out on Etsy.
So I’ve selected a costume I plan on getting hopefully next month and then I plan on getting the heels, but my collection is nowhere as massive as Wonder Boy (Antony) and Sam Hatmaker.
Both of these guys are insanely huge fan of all things Wonder Woman, and back in 2008 Sam did an interview and let the world get a peak at his collection of epic Wonder Woman memorabilia.
I’m not sure how much Sam’s collection has grown since the video, but a followup video of Wonder Boy features an awesome custom-made Wonder Woman outfit he made.
All I have to say is, WOW! Both of these guys have collections that are totally worth envying. Geez, I need to step up my game and perhaps seriously start collecting. But man, it’s going to be so expensive. Oh well, one day! For now, I will keep collecting inexpensive Wonder Woman memorabilia and enjoy being a real-life Amazon.
