[[Wanda]] has made frequent costume changes throughout the series, and has in fact had more costumes than any other two characters combined. The only constant is the white-red-black color set, and her personal skull insignia.

Nobby erfwiki.png Oh dear, it seems this article isn't up to scratch and could use some improvement. You can help Erfwiki by improving it.

Doesn't include Wanda's Goodminton era, and may need to be updated as she gains new raiment

Wanda has made frequent costume changes throughout the series, and has in fact had more costumes than any other two characters combined. The only constant is the white-red-black color set, and her personal skull insignia.

Contents

In the comic

Turn 1 and 2

Wanda pose.jpg

A Black, white, and red robe, with red pointed toed strapped boots, red bracers, and a white skull on a band in her hair.

Turn 3

Wanda White.JPG

A small white leather bustier and leather pants with red laces. Red boots and white gloves. Worn at the beginning of a torture session with Jillian.

Turn 4

Wanda Gray Halter.JPG

A gray halter top and pants, worn while relaxing after a torture session with Jillian and again later with Parson in the library at night. It appears again on Turn 8, in the war council after the Royal Crown Coalition seizes the Outer Walls.

Wanda Red Tie.JPG

A white shirt and red tie, with black bodice and red pants. Red riding gloves. White cap with skull motif.

Turn 5

Wanda Red Black Dress.JPG

A red and black backless dress that reveals ample cleavage.

Wanda White Robe.JPG

Worn with the intent of fast removal, this is a short white robe with red blotches that intentionally resemble blood stains. On the left breast, the red blots form into a pink skull with red eyes (click on image for higher-resolution version which makes the pink skull much clearer). The robe is closed by a red sash.

Turn 6

Wanda Gi.JPG

This Gi is worn during a philosophy lesson held by King Banhammer; also with the Predictamancer, and finally with Stanley after the fall of Faq. It is a simple, two-piece, greenish suit with a skull adornment in the hair.

Wanda White Red One Piece.JPG

Actually worn either early in the fighting with the Royal Crown Coalition before the comic starts, or as far back as Faq's era, this is a white and red one piece, worn with thigh length red boots and a skull adornment in her hair.

Turn 7

Wanda Black Red One Piece.JPG

Initially, this outfit appears to merely be a black, hooded robe, but once the energies of her casting come into play, the robe flies back to become a cloak, revealing a Red and black one-piece. A skull-topped staff accessory completes the ensemble.

Turn 8

Wanda Black Red Battle Gear.JPG

For the Croakamancer on the go, this simple... yeah right... red and black armor with a skulled helm and goat's head topped staff.

Wanda Dance Fight.JPG

A homage to Michael Jackson in his Thriller video, this red and black suit is made for dancing.

Turn 9

Wanda Red Black Two Piece.JPG
{{{6}}}


This ensemble appears after Wanda finds and attunes to the Arkenpliers. It is a black and red... Uhm... something. I really dunno what this is technically called. Oh, right, yes I do. It is BLATANT PANDERING.

You may also notice the 'teeth' that would make her belly a 'mouth', much like some classic comic book and Anime villains.

Turn 13

Wanda Warchalking.jpg

Wanda on her way to recapture Warchalking. Looks like red leather with black studs and a white skull highlight - with black skull helmet, pauldrons and bracers.

Wanda Warchalking2.jpg

This is likely the same raiment - now drawn by Xin Ye - shown in a flashback.

Complete with 'spikes of villainy'.

Turn 75

Wanda Expository.jpg

Wanda's outfit at the Expository Bridge, intended for dance fighting. The "Bride of Frankenstein"-hair is actually a headgear.

Inner Peace

Day 33

WandaInnerPeaceDay33.png

During her first extended visit to the Magic Kingdom Wanda worked with Teddy Clothespin to obtain new raiment out of the depths of her desires and imagination. She is immediately pleased with the effect this outfit seems to have on Delphie Temple, inspiring fear and anxiety when she is in Wanda's presence.

The hat she wears is actually a re-sized message hat.

Bonus Outfits

Christmas 2010

Wanda ribbions.png

Wanda wearing ribbons. And nothing else. Oh sweet Jesus yes! From the christmas 2010 news item.

General themes and thoughts

  • Classic evil overlord (red/black, spikes of villainy, decorative skull, the teeth-on-costume, etc)
  • Undead related (Michael Jackson zombies dancing, Bride-of-Frankenstein hairstyle, skulls and representation thereof)
  • "Evil Is Sexy" trope.
  • She is shown in flashbacks with livery (skull with a flower), themed after croakamancy obviously. The flower looks somewhat out of place, it gives a strange juxtaposition of either femininity or life against a looming symbol of death.
  • Wanda's past affiliation with Olive Branch potentially explains the presence of the flower in her livery

Real World References

  • The teeth-on-costume relate to several tacky villains, one of them being from the 'Quest' series.
  • Wanda's dance-fighting costume from Turn 8 is an homage to Michael Jackson in his Thriller video.
  • The flower with the skull is angled/sized exactly the way a hello kitty red ribbon is, suggesting an indirect reference to hello kitty parodies rather that hello kitty directly. Hello killy!
  • Her hooded robe and skull-topped staff from Turn 7 may be a homage to Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. The flares on the shaft of the staff are strikingly similar to Skeletor's "Havoc Staff."
  • Leading Gobwin Knob forces at the Expository Bridge, Wanda wears an outfit and hairstyle nearly identical to those the Rocky Horror Picture Show character Magenta wears in the final scenes. Wanda's hairstyle (and Magenta's) is a reference to Elsa Lanchester's "The Bride" in the 1935 film Bride of Frankenstein.
