Fisher once said "I remember that iron bikini I wore in Episode VI: what supermodels will eventually wear in the seventh ring of Hell". Apparently, it had a habit of slipping off.
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 Carrie Fisher and stuntwoman TracyEddon and was created by costume designers Aggie Guerard Rodgers andNilo Rodis-Jamero, inspired by the works of fantasy artist FrankFrazetta'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.
The costume has gained a huge fan following since the 1983 release of the movie, and often makes its way into the Cosplay world.
