Wonder Women of America

I was looking for something else and came across AMOS’s Wonder Women of America, a compilation of photos of women who dressed up in costumes at San Diego Comic-Con last year.

Typically, books like this can go one of two ways — the bad way is that these women get fetishized for wearing costumes, and the good way is that it becomes a celebration of women finding their power through a character they identify with. This book, from glancing at the photos (there are more here) seems to be going the “good” way. I see a pretty big diversity of ages and body shapes (although, sadly, not much of a racial diversity, but I hope that’s only the sample photos).

STRANGEco still lists it as “coming soon” but I’m assuming they’re resettling after SDCC. I look forward to checking this book out.
