Princess Leia

I don't know if I've ever posted about it, but I'm a member of the Rebel Legion (largest world-wide organization of good-guy Star Wars costumers). I've always done a generic costume when I do troops, like Jedi, and I swore I was never going to do a classic Princess Leia because I don't look like Carrie Fisher (other than height, we're the same). Last year at the Star Wars night at the Cardinals game, since we didn't have a Leia, they had one of their employees wear a halloween costume and everyone loved it, so I realized it doesn't matter that I don't look like Carrie so long as I'm recognizable. I decided to go ahead and make it, and here's the end result.





One from the ballgame. Apparently I was on ESPN :p My buns did make it onto the Wil Wheaton project though XD

I made the boots, I'll probably do a more in-depth write up about it later, I basically built the boot shaft and attached it to a pair of vintage boots.

  2. You may not look exactly like her, but you pull it off very nicely. And your costume is amazing! I'm very interested in how you did the boots. I don't think I've ever seen such an accurate Leia Before!
