Leia (Slave version) - Star Wars Episode VI
This is the only costume in my costuming gallery that I DID NOT make.
I decided to put up a gallery here for Princess Leia only because the photos were snapshots taken at San Diego Comic Con and not do qualify to be in a modeling gallery. The convention setting with it's booth displays and attendees make it impossible to do a real photoshoot.
I was asked by Jamin of www.leiasmetalbikini.com to join the annual Slave Leia gathering at San Diego Comic Con 2008 because they needed a first time metal bikini wearer to talk about the experience for the Canadian TV Show "Ed The Sock". I was honored that Jamin approached me for that feature! He loaned a beautiful costume to me for one day and I had a good time doing the gathering as well as posing for photos with Jabba The Hut! As a long-time Star Wars fan I wanted to make sure I was in good enough shape to pull off the bikini, and I also made Leia's gold earrings to complete the outfit.
You can see me in this footage G4 took at Comic Con!
