Amaya Suriyapperuma and Seshani Cooray are two such fans from Sri Lanka, who both decided to cosplay as the character at the Lanka Comic Con last month.

While Suriyapperuma chose the Wonder Woman costume from the movie, Cooray picked the Wonder Woman 600 version of the outfit, complete with long pants and a jacket.

However, because some people are just rude, the duo found themselves in the crosshairs of a bunch of trolls who decided to body-shame them in a series of memes and hateful comments.

From being called "too skinny" to "too dark", Cooray and Suriyapperuma had to bear all kinds of cyberbullying for a couple of days after the event.

But, as it turned out, there are still some decent people out there, and they all stepped in to back the two heroes up against the haters.

"I did not expect any of this! I just wanted to cosplay and just have fun at the Comic Con (which I did). I was so happy when everyone started supporting us," Cooray told BuzzFeed.

Cooray added that she chose the more modest Wonder Woman 600 outfit because she thought it would be more appropriate for the event and not attract attention from trolls.

"I expected some comments, but not such nasty memes where they took our pictures and body shamed us. I was very disappointed," she added.
