I just realized that on a scale from Princess Leia to Jabba The Hutt, I’m probably closer to Jabba :(
Anyways, that’s besides the point. The important news here is that Princess Leia’s slave bikini can be yours to own!! That’s right, the actual metal bikini that Carrie Fisher wore in the film will be going up for auction and any regular movie buff or creepy pervert can own a piece of history! That is, if you have an absurd amount of money. According to Rolling Stone, the bikini is set to go for anywhere between $80,000 and $120,000.
According to the seller, “The wares included in the lot were used on set, though the costume seen in the movie was a resized version made to account for actress Carrie Fisher’s weight loss while shooting.” Ok, so it’s not the actual bikini, I guess. It’s not the only thing being sold, though! If you dole out the cash for the bikini, you’ll also be receiving various alternate iterations of the costume that were nixed by George Lucas, as well as sever design and pain studies. It also comes with a letter of authentication signed by Richard Miller, the costume designer.
So, there you have it. For just a hundred grand, you can be wearing Princess Leia’s bikini, kind of. If you can’t afford that, you can always just gawk at these lovely ladies who wear the bikini quite well.
