Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman Suit is in Fort Worth Right Now

Cowgirls won't be the only heroines on display when the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame reveals its second-floor renovation. 

The “Wonder Woman” costume created by Lindy Hemming and worn by Gal Gadot, who starred as Wonder Woman in the 2017 blockbuster movie, is now on display on that renovated second floor, which also includes the Kit Moncrief Galleries and It’s Never Just a Horse exhibition. Closed since Feb. 10 for final renovations, the museum reopens to the public on March 9. 

The connection between the famous comic book costume and the Cowgirl Museum is Camilla Naprous, noted equestrian and 2018 Hall of Fame honoree. Naprous also works in the film industry, training horses and actors to perform on-screen stunts.

Naprous is responsible for the choreography and execution of the movie scenes with horses, with dozens of TV and movie credits to her name as horse master. Aside from "Wonder Woman" (in which she also served as a stunt double), she has worked on multiple productions, including “Pan,” “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” and “The Monuments Men," as well as the HBO television series “Game of Thrones.” Naprous also taught Academy Award winner for Best Actress, Olivia Coleman, how to ride for her role in “The Favourite.”

Along with the "Wonder Woman" costume, the exhibit also plays a short film compilation that highlights some of the horse work Naprous completed for the movie. The museum is also displaying a saddle from “Game of Thrones," used by Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow in the series. 

“We are continually exploring the many ways that horses have in the past, and will continue, to influence us,” says Dr. Diana Vela, associate executive director. “The inclusion of Naprous and her work highlights the wide variety of cowgirls we honor in the museum.”
