Character/Costume Description

This is Leia's ceremonial gown from Star
Wars Episode IV: A new hope.

Dress:
The A line gown consists of two layers:
white cotton/viscose crepe satin for the
sleeveless underdress and white crepe
chiffon for the overdress. The bodice of the
underdress is self-lined and has vertical
bust darts for a better fit. The chiffon is
used as outer layer on the skirt, the back of
the bodice and the front bodice/sleeve
piece. The front bodice overlay and wing-
like sleeves are made from one big piece of
chiffon without any seams or darts. The
gown has a U-shaped neckline, an inverse
V-shaped empire waist, a small train and
closes in the back with an invisible zipper.

Jewelry and hairpiece:
The cuff bracelet is an original one from
Lapponia. The design is called ‘Darina’s’.
The necklace pieces are made of polymer
clay and painted with silver acrylic paint. A
plaster negative mold was made after
Lapponia’s famous necklace called
‘planetoid valleys’.
The hairpiece is made of wire mesh, wire
and two long braids of artificial hair. The
longer braid is wrapped three times around
the cylindrical wire mesh base, the shorter
one hangs loosely down the back. The
hairpiece is kept in place with the help of a
comb and some hair clips.

Belt, shoes and purse:
The belt is made of silver leather, silver
metal shank buttons and two different
types of metal ornaments. The pentagonal
and octagonal metal ornaments are made
of polished, laser cutted stainless steel. I
wear silver pumps with the gown. The
silver, decorated leather purse is made
from remnant materials.
