Dad Spent $1,500 On Daughter’s Halloween Costume, And It Was Worth It.
The Wonder Woman film starring Gal Gadot isn't out until next year but teasers have kept us afloat for now. Visit any Halloween shop or site and you'll find that the hype has made the Amazonian Princess one of the top-selling costumes out there. In some places, it's already sold out.
Commercial photographer Josh Rossi took it to a completely different level when he spent $1,500 to fulfill his three-year-old daughter's dream of becoming Wonder Woman.
To prepare his daughter Nellee for her debut, Rossi sought the help of McGrew Studios in Salt Lake City to craft a handmade leather costume. Mom was in on it, too. Together, the family studied the trailer, comic books, and the 1970's TV series starring Lynda Carter to get those facial expressions and gestures just right.
After two months of preparation, the family made it into the studio for the big shoot. Even though they only had a few hours to work before Nellee's nap time, they knocked it outta the park. Nellee was a natural and the final photos are incredible.
Check out the details on Nellee's handmade leather ensemble. Her accessories are of another caliber.
She's only three years old but she looks fierce in her Wonder Woman costume. She's even got the long wavy tresses.
At the photoshoot, Nellee proved to be a natural, giving Carter and Gadot a run for their money.
Nellee's modeling was on point — we wouldn't be surprised if modeling was in her foreseeable future — but her father's editing really brought the photos to life.
Rossi's Photoshop editing is modeled closely after the promo photos for the modern film.
He used more than just filters. He spent hours editing layers upon layers.
Rossi was probably thinking, “Go in peace my daughter. And remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman."
Of all the shots, this is probably our favorite one. Look at how many people it took to get Nellee in the right position.
This one looks like a scene from the film. The team did an amazing job!
We can't wait to see what's in store for this one. We're sure that she'll be more than ready for whatever comes her way.
