Found my first Wonder Woman costume. My mum made it for me when I was about seven? Because I *WAS* LINDA CARTER. #wonderwoman #1970’s

Wonder Woman costume I made and wore on Halloween 1989-2002. Managed to get into this sucker for my comic book cover.

It’s a lot or work, ya know.

The exhibit opens Friday, August 15 ( 7-10:30 pm ), & August 16 ( 10 am -5 pm ) in conjunction with the Integrate Arts Festival and runs to August 30, 2014.  (map)
Plus there’s a hop on – hope off bus (more info). 

We are exposed throughout our lives to comic book culture starting in childhood with Super Heroes & Cartoon Characters, and then perhaps graduating to Manga, Underground Comics or Graphic Novels. Even the 1940’s detective comics, the 1950’s horror sci-fi classics, that may predate us, still manage to affect us with their nostalgic aura. To many artists comic books were the first exposure to image making – here is your opportunity to reconnect with these roots!

Although I had already submitted my artwork to the printer for this show, I especially noticed these artworks during our trip to visit London galleries.
