It was shown in the trailers right before the big lead-up to the film that premiered worldwide two weeks ago – but how comfortable is it really? How viable is it? Is this visual representation accurate? The ultimate question – can we hide a sword down the back of our slinky dress without accidentally slicing our assets to shreds?
Fortunately for us, a group of curious Facebookers took it to the test. When Anna-Karin asked if it was plausible, one Facebook user – Eva Wei – promised to give it a try in the name of science and clarification. Eva took her regenyei onehander and shoved it down her sheer white chiffon dress.
The verdict? “The sword sits pretty decent and I can walk and dance in it without that much of a fuss. I also think it could be drawable if it was just 10 cm shorter (which I estimate WW’s sword to be) so that also kind of works. So the verdict is that the scene is actually surprisingly plausible.”
ONE person’s success doesn’t mean complete validation. Several other Facebook users took to posting their recreations, and it became a thing (rope in Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr) – Wonder Woman Got Your Back, or the favourable hastag #WWGotYourBack.
The result? Fancy dresses + swords of all shapes and sizes = Something we can definitely get on board with.
