There’s a part of me that really really wants this. I’m not talking about a knock-off at the costume store, I’m talking the real deal! Well sadly it’s a little out of my price range. The Princess Leia original bikini costume from Return of the Jedi is going up for auction and is expected to go for between $80,000-$120,000 according to Rolling Stone magazine.
Princess Leia’s infamously impractical golden bikini, worn while Jabba the Hutt enslaved the princess at the beginning of Return of the Jedi, is one of over 50 Star Wars lots set to sell at an upcoming auction hosted by Profiles in History.
The costume, designed by Richard Miller, is expected to fetch between $80,000 to $120,000, and is billed as part of “the most important and complete compilation of original Star Wars pieces to have survived production in private hands.”
I bet your wife would look great in this 😉
