    Well, as a father of a daughter myself, I’d say he’s “best dad ever” only if this was something his daughter actually WANTED to do, and not just to patiently humor his own geeking-out. There’s a difference between wanting to dress up as Wonder Woman and enduring long photoshoots, being fitted and refitted with accurately replicated costumes, and painstakingly duplicating poses.

    Nellee, who plans to wear her costume trick-or-treating (“Fifteen hundred dollars of costume for $15 of candy,” jokes her dad), has refused to put on “street clothes” for weeks.

    “She wears her Wonder Woman outfit to the grocery store, she wears it when we go to restaurants,” says Rossi. “People are blown away — it’s not exactly something you can miss.”

    He purposely designed the costume so that his daughter can get at least two years’ of wear out of it before retiring it in the dresser for good.

    “We’ll keep it in a special shrine, kind of like the place where Batman and Ironman store their suits,” he tells PEOPLE. “But the way things are going right now, there’s no way Nellee will let us leave it there for even a day. Not yet. She still has a lot of ‘saving’ to do.”

    Well, alright, it’s great that she’s into it.

    Whether it costs $1500 or not, Wonder Woman iconography just makes already-badass girls more visibly badass.


  • I certainly got the impression that the kid was enjoying the hell out of it.

    It’s hard to top that one, but here are a few other Wonder Girls:

    These photos are flooding social media, and it’s awesome.

    They are all Diana.

    “I am Diana” is so much cooler than “I am Groot.”
