Back on a mission alongside his new partner, the Wasp, the Ant-Man has to fight an epic battle against a powerful new enemy. To respond to their action-charged lifestyle, the character’s costumes are versatile and practical, made of technologically advanced materials such as rubber tubing, four-way stretch fabric and patent leather. The movie’s wardrobe designer is Louise Frogley, who previously worked on other superhero movies such as Iron Man 3 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. She has attempted to sharpen the Ant-Man’s fashion sense by using a sleeker aesthetic and fine materials and depict the Wasps’ story through her attire. “Since she was a fugitive most of the time, we were trying to make her clothes such that she’d put them in a small suitcase or backpack so she could be self-contained,” she said.
Her costume shows the fact that she is an independent and determined woman, and needs clothes that allow for these characteristics. Therefore, unlike most women superhero, the Wasp has a somewhat athletic costume paired with wrestling boots, which gives her the freedom for movements and action.
