Disclaimer: This is the only costume in my costuming gallery that I DID NOT make.
I was asked by Jamin of LeiasMetalBikini.com [link]
to join the annual Slave Leia gathering at San Diego Comic Con because they needed a first time metal bikini wearer to talk about the experience for the Canadian TV Show "Ed The Sock". I was honored that Jamin approached me for that Feature! He loaned a beautiful costume to me for one day and I had a good time doing the gathering as well as posing for photos with Jabba The Hut! As a long-time Star Wars fan I wanted to make sure I was in good enough shape to pull off the bikini, and I also made Leia's gold earrings to complete the outfit.
You can see me in this footage G4 took at Comic Con! [link]
I also got filmed by the Tonight Show and was the only Slave Leia that year to make it into the actual Comic Con coverage. Random lol.
*PS - sorry for the snap shots. There were so many people around the Gentle Giant booth that we couldn't possibly get good photos.
