John Barrowman Rocks a Wonder Woman Romper at DragonCon 2017

If John Barrowman (Doctor Who and Arrow) wants to become Wonder Woman…he becomes Wonder Woman! At DragonCon this year the Playboy of Time & Space steps into the stars and stripes of the Amazon Princess for his panel, a special photo op, and at a karaoke afterparty. All I gotta say is…Barrowman…you lookin’ fierce as f*ck!

His romper was made by Elhoffer Design with Bernadazzled doing the bedazzeling on the outfit! Stretch satin was used as a base out of a dull satin with spandex woven and gold stretch vinyl for the belt, placket, collar, sleeves and appliqué. A cape was also made which used nearly ten yards of stretch velvet and had around twenty five star appliqués ranging from stone work to sequins in red, white and blue. What’s especially amazing is that this whole creation was done in little over a week. Wow!

Oh. My. God. So, y’all know I try and keep kinda quiet about the special projects I work on, and I certainly tried with the latest @johnscotbarrowman creation (though I can’t be held responsible for IG Story leaks 😂), and it was HARD to not post anything because this is MY FAVORITE TO DATE. John wanted to be Wonder Woman. So we went back and forth with a few ideas and finally settled on a Men’s Romper. Romphim, if you must. But it wouldn’t be just a regular romper. Oh no no. It must be a Barrowman Romper. So full sparkle and maximum fit. I started with a stretch satin base out of a dull satin with spandex woven into it. Red and Blue. Gold stretch vinyl for the belt, placket, collar, sleeves, and appliqué. And white stars in four sizes across the back and hips. Then @msbernadetteb went to down to make them a @bernadazzled creation that would blind the crowd. (Not pictured is the majestic AF cape he came out in, which was nearly 10 yards of stretch velvet and had around 25 star appliqués ranging from stone work to sequins and in red, white, and blue. With a standing collar for extra drama.) This man is amazing. Now Bernadette has to make him some gold and red boots to go with this. Alas, when we only had just over a week to do this, giving me only a few days as her work takes far longer, some things just have to wait for the next show. 😉 Now, who was at his panel at #dragoncon? Cause he brought the HOTEL down! Sparkle King John! Also, Wonder BarrowMan. It’s now a thing. #madeinla #handmade #sewing #wonderwoman #dccomics #cosplay #costume #johnbarrowman #geekbound #geekfashion
