Antiope from Wonder Woman

Antiope from Wonder Woman

Most people know Robin Wright as Princess Buttercup from the movie The Princess Bride. In 2017's Wonder Woman audiences discovered that Buttercup had transformed into the mighty Antiope. Sister to Queen Hippolyta and aunt to the fearsome Diana, Antiope is the beloved general of the Amazonian warriors. Her own sister calls her the greatest warrior their people have ever known. And without her Wonder Woman would never have become the hero she is today.

Unfortunately it's hard to get Antiope's armor without spending a large chunk of change. Leather armor is pricy and there are many distinct and custom pieces to this costume. There are, however, a few pieces you can use to get close and recreate her look pretty closely without making a huge investment. This will let you upgrade your costume over time if you find yourself reaching for your Antiope costume pretty regularly.

One piece - Antiope's helm or crown - comes from Etsy and is custom made. It is fairly pricy for a single piece. But it is one of her most iconic pieces and well worth the investment.

You'll want a long blonde wig to wear as well, given that Robin Wright wore her signature blonde hair long for the role. A Roman base costume gives you the general look of Amazon body armor which you can then add leather wrist bracers, a leather shoulder guard, and dark brown leather boots too. Wielding an Amazon sword and a couple of costume daggers, you're ready to lead your sister Amazons into battle!
