Slave Leia Cosplay – Thank you Jabba the Hutt for capturing Princess Leia back in ’83 in Return of the Jedi and giving us the Slave Leia costume. And thank you Instagram fitness models for choosing this costume, we salute your cosplay efforts!
The Slave Leia costume refers to the bikini-style outfit worn by Princess Leia Organa when she was captured by Jabba the Hutt in Return of the Jedi.
The costume was worn by actress Carrie Fisher and was created by costume designers Aggie Guerard Rodgers and Nilo Rodis-Jamero, inspired by the works of fantasy artist Frank Frazetta’s Egyptian Queen.
Star Wars creator George Lucas requested the costume in part based on Fisher’s complaints about the lack of interesting costumes in A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.
