Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has thanked a fan for dressing up as her at a cosplay event.

Jessi Chartier posted on Twitter showing her exploits at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo last weekend, where she dressed up as the director and writer, complete with clapperboard.

Best of all, the photos showed her posing with other cosplayers who had dressed up as characters from the DC movie starring Gal Gadot.

After seeing the post on Twitter, Jenkins posted her own message, writing:

“Okay, this is completely hysterical and insane. My entire WW crew and I just laughed SO hard at this. Nice @JessiChartier. What a compliment!!! Thank you.”

Chartier continued the love-in with a message thanking her idol right back.

Jenkins’ other work includes writing and directing Monster, as well as directing episodes of TV shows such as Arrested Development, Entourage and The Killing. She is also due to direct the next Wonder Woman film which will be released in late 2019.
