This costume is a replica of Princess Leia's
gown from A New Hope. I decided to make
it after being in the Leia Photoshoot at CIV.
My dress is made out of a polyester
interlock. It's lined in the same fabric as the
real dress is. I made it using a discontinued
Simplicity pattern but cut it so there were
only two seams going down the sides.
The belt is made from leather from Tandy
Leather. It's a belly strip. I painted it white
and a friend made me the belt plates out of
stainless steel and the button blanks are
secured with straps of leather in the back of
The boots I got online and my hairstyle is
made from hair I got from Sally's hair
supply and after several tries and practice
and ALOT of bobby pins, I finally got it
I first wore this costume to a convention
called MonsterCon and had a fantastic time.
This is by far one of my favorite costumes!
