Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope
Character: Leia Organa
Variant: Senatorial dress
Debut: January 2006, revised April 2011
Dress and belt
The dress is made of off-white crepe georgette. It has a waist seam with a channel for an elastic strap, but it doesn’t have any seam at the shoulders nor armholes. The dress is slit at the sides and is completely lined. It has a high standup collar and a trapezoid hood. The keyhole opening in the back is closed with two small, silver shank buttons. The belt is made of white leather. The ornaments are made of stainless steel and silver shank buttons.
Hair pieces, boots and accessory
The buns are made of loose, artificial hair. The hair is swirled into a bun and sewed onto a base of black tulle. The buns are secured with a hair net and stay in place with the help of a comb which is sewn at the tulle base and some hairgrips. I wear white boots and a model of Leia’s blaster or a Stormtrooper’s blaster with the costume.
- The base of this costume was made by filmkostueme.de
