"I need a nude top for a costume." After some Googling, I found Diana's; a dancewear shop on the edge of Blue Ash and Sycamore Township. Located in a drab concrete building, the outside of Diana's reminded me more of an animal shelter than a clothing shop. Once inside, I was delighted to find rows of colorful costumes and a friendly staff. The flesh colored rack caught my eye immediately, and I easily located the style and size I needed. Diana's offers anything and everything for dancers young and old: leotards, tights, tutus, ballet shoes, tap shoes, theatre shoes. Everything. It was like walking into the backroom of a performing arts studio. They even have a rack labeled "praisewear" which I assume is for choir outfits. Prices here are very reasonable too. My nude top only cost $ and was made out of high quality shapewear material. Most other items ranged between $ and $. Diana's was pretty busy when I stopped by midday; bustling with everyone from teenagers repairing ballet slippers to children trying on dance clothes, to adults shopping for a community theatre performance. The shop does keep odd hours though, like being closed the first Thursday of the month. In and out quickly with what I need at a reasonable price. Diana's danced its way into my heart. Good selection of shoes. We drive 45 minutes to get here for pointe shoe fittings! Please call to make an appointment for the pointe fittings as they spend 20-30 minutes with you trying on different pairs. If you buy a few pairs a year the 20% discount program is a must. Staff is helpful. Would definitely recommend checking it out. Diana’s Dancewear Unclaimed This business has not yet been claimed by the owner or a representative.
For longtime comics readers, it can be irritating to see a favorite character revamped to resemble a movie, as if the comics aren't what really matter. But as a Wonder Woman costume, this one is hard to argue with. Princess Diana looks like a classical Amazon warrior living in modern times, while also looking like a superhero. She's recognizable as the same character she's been since 1941, without being beholden to those outdated aesthetics. And for anyone who doesn't like this costume, we can only advise patience. Wonder Woman and what she wears will surely evolve in the years to come—just as they have in these past seven and a half decades.
