M.A.C. Wonder Woman Collection

MAC cosmetics recently announced they are teaming with DC Comics to create a limited edition line inspired by Wonder Woman. This is so very “dungeons and diamonds” that I might just have to take a trip to my local MAC counter to investigate when the products are released.

 "MAC Cosmetics said Wednesday that the company is partnering with DC Comics’ Wonder Woman to create a limited edition color cosmetics collection featuring the illustrated superhero. Set for a spring 2011 launch at all MAC locations worldwide, the lineup is expected to include lipsticks, eye shadows, blush and nail polish ranging in price from $13 to $49.50. (No word on whether metal-deflecting bracelets are part of the collection.)" - WWD

In addition, DC Comics also unveiled Wonder Woman’s new look, to go along with an alternative history that's been written for a particular story arc. Black leggings, a red bustier, and black leather jacket replace the old red leotard, hotpants and knee boots. I think the new look would allow her to blend a bit better with the mere mortals. Although, with the few comics I have read, that doesn't seem to be one of her main concerns.

Look for Wonder Woman’s new gear and background to be introduced in Issue #600.

What do you think? Is this a change for the better, or worse?


  1. Though not nearly as bad as Red/Blue Electric Superman, I don't think Diana's clothing swap will last long. Classic Wonder Woman is just that, a classic. Supes, Batman, Captain America, etc... they haven't changed all that much over the years because they're iconic.

    Picturing Lynda Carter in the new costume makes me think more Black Canary than WW anyway. Old school FTW.

  2. I can't wait to see what MAC does with their WW line! Did you know that they're making a Disney villains line too? As for the WW ensemble, I still like the old school outfit best. ("Pants are an illusion.")

    Have you seen the video of Tim Gunn critiquing superhero costumes? He's just awesome.

  3. OMG, no, but that sounds amazing!!! I need to youtube this, stat!
