Costume designer Lindy Hemming has received a lot of praise for her work on Wonder Woman, but fellow costume designer Amanda Weaver will help you fully appreciate what Hemming has achieved. In a gushing series of tweets, Weaver used her expertise to break down the costumes in the film and compare them to existing pieces of Roman armor. It’s clear that Hemming sought to balance the aesthetic needs of a Hollywood film with historical accuracy—tipping the scales towards the latter to deliver believable female warriors.

I say “probably” because I didn’t bother to try Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino. I assume that it tastes better than hair but, knowing Starbucks, I’m not 100% sure on that. However, I’m very sure that Starbucks will try a stunt like this again, and Kelly O’Leary-Woodford is only encouraging them with her creation.

Apparently, these images have been floating around the Internet with claims that they represent an updated version of the Black Panther costume for the solo film.
