Princess Leia Costume Ideas

Princess Leia was famously portrayed by actress Carrie Fisher in the original Star Wars trilogy films. Released only as Star Wars, the original film is titled Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope - and is set "a long time ago in a galaxy, far, far away."

The twin sister of Luke Skywalker and the daughter of Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker) and Padmé Amidala, her real name is Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan—but usually just referred to as Princess Leia.

She is a skilled warrior and excellent sharpshooter.

Leia is probably most recognized by her signature hairstyle which consists of hair buns (sometimes referred to as "cinnamon buns") on both sides of her head. This is one thing you'll want to get right when dressing up to look like Princess Leia.

The ion cannon will fire several shots to make sure any enemy ships will be out of your flight path. When you've gotten past the energy shield, proceed directly to the rendezvous point. Understood? Good luck.
