It was a blind date…plain and simple. I walked into it with the lowest of expectations, because experience had taught me to be cautious and common sense had taught me to be sensible. Just realistic, something I try very hard not to be on a regular basis.
In burlesque, as long as the audience is gung-ho for entertainment, it is difficult for a performance to fail. That is especially so when it is parodying a sci-fi classic. Every whoop and catcall is a siren heralding a good time is to be had by all.
Hell there's even a scene in Return of the Jedi where you can clearly see Through that character, Lucas transformed the princess from helpless Well, if you're looking for more Leia, you can find her in Disney's Star Wars series, Rebels, a computer animated TV series set before the Whether these can be written out remains to be seen.
Among male teenage nerds, this was a freeze frame moment. Gotta keep those puppies on their leash! They have a long journey ahead, and fashion disasters should be addressed early.
Carrie Fisher complained about her costumes in the previous two movies. Get me up. This take is the take used in the final film.
She hated the white dress from A New Hope, but it was the famed metal bikini in Return of the Jedi, which she despised most of all. More than two dozen actresses auditioned for the role. Her breasts were taped down with gaffer tape, as her costume did not permit any lingerie to be worn underneath.
Besides the fact she had to wear it, her face and body are almost always associated with it. But for a costume that appears briefly in one movie, it does open a mixed bag of feelings for Fisher, the people who worked on Return of the Jedi set, and the fans who covet it. The bikini was inspired in part by the work of Frank Frazetta, an artist who designed covers for comics such as the Buck Rogers series, along with movie posters.
Wow, you guys are rubbing shoulders with the greats now. It was over 30 years ago so maybe her memory isn't all that great about some things. You should also take her responses with a grain of salt.
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.
