Cosplayer Arlette > Costume of Princess Leia from Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Cheated and bought the Legg Avenue costume to use as a base. Then I cut it apart and did a lot of modifications for accuracy. I added bra cups to the top, and cut the top so that it would not have sides and added my own gold ties. I cut out the modesty panels from the sides of the skirt, but kept and re-sewed the panties underneath that run from front to back for extra protection. It came with most of her accessories except for one bracelet, which I made from foamies and painted. Oh, and since my hair is very short I pulled it back as much as I could and used an extension which I braided. I had a lot of fun in this costume!
- Personal Thoughts:
- This has been like...11 years in the making. XD The Han/Leia couples cosplay, I mean. Also the super cute other Leia who I think was shorter than me was super cute. Bobby pins, girl!
