The first Wonder Woman movie...

Hi all,
Sorry for the delay in getting the latest posting up. I'm happy to say that I was a little busy last week with the birth of my first child and beautiful daughter. It was definitely an experience I'll never forget but I've never been happier or prouder.

Now back on track, I wanted to write a bit about the first Wonder Woman that was done in 1974, starring Cathy Lee Crosby. That's right, not Linda Carter. It's true that Linda's Wonder Woman is more iconic and we have a lot of fond memories about it but surprisingly her Wonder Woman was not the first.

Cathy Lee Crosby beat her by a few years with a very different looking Wonder Woman and different back ground. She had blonde hair and instead of the classic costume she wore red tunic and blue tights. In my opinion I thought this was a very cool and sexy look and it's a shame we don't see more of this costume today. She still had a connection to Steve Trevor like in the series but this version was more of a super agent than a super hero.

In the movie, she goes after a spy that stole some secret files played by Ricardo Montalban, who gave a very suave performance. The first part of the movie, she wasn't in costume due to it being more of spy-like story but in the second half she is in full costume. During this period, she is in a few fight scenes and escapes a few traps but unfortunately she never really seems to be in much peril as she handles each challenge easily.

In the end, this is a definite must see for all Wonder Woman and super heroine fans. It's a part of super heroine history that is easily overlooked. Again, I am a huge fan of that costume and I'll be looking to recreate for a new super heroine that I am thinking up of.

New Upcoming show, "Team Unicorn: Saturday Action Fun Hour"...

Team Unicorn
Hi all, So I wanted to spread the word on a new show that will hopefully be coming out soon on the Cartoon Network during their "Adult Swim" block called, "Team Unicorn: Saturday Action Fun Hour". It will feature four super heroines that forms a team and will have adventures fighting robots, super villains and etc. From what I read from IGN.com This series will be produced Seth Green, creator of the popular "Robot Chicken"series on Cartoon Network along with three of the Team Unicorn members.

From an article from IGN.com: ign.com/teamunicorn
The super heroines are played by popular cosplayers and producers: Clare Grant, Rileah Vanderbilt, Milynn Sarley and will be joined by
new comer Alison Haislip (Attack of the Show). These ladies produced similar type of stuff on their websites but this will be their first official show. From what I've seen so far, from the costumes to the bits of info we got I am extremely excited to see this show!

I could only imagine what to expect from these multi-colored super heroines but it looks like it will be fun.

According to the actresses and producers:
"Team Unicorn is in the spirit of Sailor Moon and The Powerpuff Girls with a sprinkling of Voltron and Josie and the Pussycats," said Grant and Vanderbilt."

Yep, I'm sold!
This sounds like the type of show, Superheroine fans has been waiting for a long time, great looking characters, action-packed adventures with hopefully some peril and content for and older audience which is why it'll be on a later as part of Adult Swim. So far, the pilot is being made and hopefully it will be a success.
I'll be sure sure to add more news as it develops but in the meantime, enjoy these links!
