Character/Costume Description

Leia Organa's classic senatorial dress
as seen in A New Hope.

Gown is handmade by my husband
using Joann "Jet Set" white poly knit
fabric. It is self-lined with no
topstitching. There is a waist seam
hidden under the belt. The hood is not
lined and has hand-sewn hems.

Belt is handmade by me with
aluminum plates hand cut by my
husband. The belt is made of two
layers of upholstery vinyl with a layer
of craft foam sandwiched in between.
The plates are riveted onto the belt,
with button covers glued on top.
Plates are bent slightly to
accommodate the curve of the waist.
The snap closure is hidden by an
additional plate.

Boots are white pleather calf-height
boots with a low heel, purchased from
Amazon. Buckles were removed and
replaced with hidden elastic.

Hair is my own hair parted and pinned
into tiny buns with "insta buns"
attached over them. The insta-buns
are made of kanekalon extensions
attached to a mesh base, held secure
by hair nets.
