Leia bikini contest
She originally "wanted 25 yards of fabric to be flowing through the scene", but couldn't make it work. The outfit was first developed in sketches by Rodis-Jamero, assistant art director of visual effects for The Empire Strikes Back and the Return of the Jedi costume designer. The fact that [Leia's costume is] such a female sensual costume, I think is terrific. Bergey drawings of women in metal bikinis that served as putative armors. Rodgers and the staff created multiple versions of the metal bikini string to accommodate different scenes in the film, including a hard metal piece original bronze bra by Sculptor Richard Miller who is credited as "head jeweler" in the film credits for scenes in which Fisher remained still, and a rubber outfit she and stuntwoman Tracy Eddon could wear comfortably while performing stunts. You'll have to ask Boba Fett about that.

Washington Post columnist Alyssa Rosenberg , however, says she sees "Slave Leia" as something of a feminist icon. It's a sexual image that deliberately exploits any attraction you feel to it by putting you on not just the side of evil, but with the most difficult grotesque villain in the movies. I think that's a pretty powerful feminist cinematic moment, whether George Lucas intended it that way or not. She slays Hutt," Dickens says. And Carrie Fisher, who had to actually wear the gold bikini in the original film?

UNTTLD strikes gold with its take on Princess Leia bikini in 'Star Wars' contest
The sequence with the giant bloated Jabba the Hut is a not-even-concealed Orientalist harem fantasy, complete with desert, chuckling dissipated bloated pasha and hapless princess decked out in fetishwear and chains. The dissonance is startling and stomach-churning. Obviously, a good part of the motivation for the slave Leia costume had to have been fan-service.
There have been some rumors lately that Disney is discontinuing any new Slave Leia merchandise. This, of course, launched a flurry of op-ed columns about why this is "good news", many written by men who have never worn the bikini. It made me feel like some scruffy looking nerf herders still regard Leia's metal bikini as something primarily for male enjoyment. I've actually worn that bikini.
