The WWE SummerSlam took place on Sunday night, where Total Divas star Natalya “Nattie” Neidhart was named winner of the SmackDown Women’s Championship. The champ both fought and looked the part in an unbelievable see-through jumpsuit made by Terry Anderson, who has been a WWE costume designer since 1989. She’s made a large number of one-of-a-kind pieces, but Nattie noted the sentimental value of this particular one.
“Several weeks ago, Nattie approached me about making her ring gear for SS but also wanted a jacket to go with it,” Anderson wrote in an Instagram post. “2 weeks ago I stopped in a Tandy Leather and bought black patent reptile printed leather on my way out I spotted a rose colored pink hide and went back to get it had no idea what I was going to make.”
“Later on the day Nattie texted me with an idea about making her a jacket like her father wore back in the day. She must have telepathically made me go back in and buy the pink leather. I said I would but I wanted to do a Nattie version of it and I came up with this.”
The piece features a ton of black and pink leather, in addition to see-through panels and loads of crystals. But it wasn’t until Natalya was headed for the ring that Anderson knew the WWE star even liked the costume.
“I worried about the two pieces not looking cohesive until I saw her 30 min before her match run by me screaming how much she loved it! I could finally put my worrying aside.”
Through Nattie’s own Instagram account, it’s evident that she was feeling her look, which she’s posted several times. As if her new championship belt wasn’t shining brightly enough, her outfit definitely says “winner.”
“Funny how after 29 years of working for this company I still worry about how my gear is going to look,” Anderson concluded.
It’s clear that Nattie’s gear always looks fit for a champ.
