The elusive Wonder Woman merchandise

Wonder woman opens in a little over a week, and if you’ve had trouble finding merchandise, you’re not the only one. The lack of merchandise driven hype on WBs part is almost embarrassing for them, if it weren’t so frustrating for the rest of us. It’s 2017 guys, this is arguably the biggest movie of the year, and you’re letting antiquated ideas of female superhero/action fans get in the way of making a pretty penny. We want to buy stuff. We want Wonder Woman themed eyeshadow palletes, collaborations with big brands, jewelry that won’t turn our skin green, and shoes in both heel and sneaker form. We want options at all price points, and all forms. For a huge blockbuster opening next week, it’s almost surreal that we have to search and rely on word of mouth that feels like a hidden treasure with each link shared. Have you walked into a major retailer (Target, Wal-Mart, Macy’s, etc) and been greeted with a grand display of clothing, toys, random stuff you didn’t know you needed until you saw it at that moment? Probably not.

Weird right?

Thanks to my ever reliable twitter/Instagram followers, I’ve collected some merchandise for women available right now, or ready for pre-order. They can be a little buried if you don’t know where to look, and a lot has to be ordered online, but most things will arrive in time for the movie for US residents!

Some links to explore: Fye and Wal-Mart have the largest selection of women’s t-shirts, Her Universe has a great selection of non-tee clothing, Alex and Ani have a selection of jewelry, Zulily has quite a bit at a discount, and GAP has a small but stylish collection of activewear.

  Hopefully this will help you find something! And if you have any collections not mentioned here, please send them my way, and I can add them to the post.

One thought on “The elusive Wonder Woman merchandise”

  1. It’s crazy, isn’t it? Someone pointed out a couple of weeks ago that they hardly seemed to be promoting it, and I don’t know if it’s really picked up any steam since then. When Guardian’s of the Galaxy was about to come out, it was wall to wall posters and adverts. Really disappointing. I’m definitely going to make a point to see it opening night – I’m genuinely excited for it, and I want it to succeed to show that female superhero movies are financially viable.
