The original Star Wars trilogy really hit the nail on the head when it came to casting: farmer-boy Luke, roguish Han, hairy Chewbacca and slightly serious, kind of sexy but certainly not-as-hot-as-Natalie-Portman feminist icon Princess Leia.

Carrie Fisher was great in the role, but every movie needs a bit of real eye candy. A conundrum in production emerged: how do you turn this attractive but not hauntingly hot woman into a smoking piece of sci-fi bone bait from a galaxy far, far away?

The answer was simple but brilliant: turn her into a sex slave, strap her to a giant slug and stick her in the sexiest bikini costume thing ever known to man. Yes, the Princess Leia slave costume (available from all good retailers) was a pure slice of costume design genius. And we thank you for it, whoever you are.

The Princess Leia Slave Costume Examined in Pictures

It would be impossible to examine the effect of the Princess Leia slave costume without the use of pictures. Of course, we will include some text to prevent this article being gratuitous, profligate and slightly infantile, but let’s not kid ourselves: scantily clad sci-fi sex slaves are a visual treat, and here are some of the best images the web has to offer….

The above photo is what heaven should look like (minus Jabba, I guess, but maybe you could paint him white, give him a big beard and pass him off as God). The lady in the middle of the photo demonstrates the perfect way to wear the costume. She is also incredibly hot.

By now, you have probably realized that this is not quite an examination in the academic sense of the word. It’s more like a gratuitous, profligate and slightly infantile excuse to show pictures of hot women in Princess Leia slave costumes. Good, let’s continue.

Above from top to bottom we have the erotically crouching form of Haydn Porter, a bisexual Playboy model from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Boy… oh… boy. Below her stands the statuesque Olivia Munn. I’ve never heard of her myself, but apparently she’s an “American comedic actress, model, television personality and author” (Wikipedia, love it). Whatever, she gets a big thumbs up for her total worthiness as a sex slave. I want one.

Above left is another image of the delightful Olivia Munn, this time reclining in a provocative manner. The image below her, meanwhile, sets the stage for two new beauties that seem to appear all over the web dressed in the unfathomably sexy Princess Leia slavegirl bikini. We’ll start with the one on the left…

Above, we have Princess Leia slave costume specialist Christy Marie. Nice. There are pictures of her dressed as Leia all over the internet, which is certainly not a bad thing.

Above from top to bottom: A towering, pale-skinned, flame-haired Leia accompanied by a complete asshat goofbag dressed as Luke Skywalker; a shy-looking Leia with a slightly strange expression (is she trying to look tough, or has her boyfriend forced her to dress up against her will? Perhaps we’ll never know); then we have a cute and smiling Leia accompanied by another fat Boba Fett;  Well, that’s it for now, but we’ll leave you with one final group shot of a sea of women dressed in the Princess Leia slave costume (yeah, I know, you want to see it in greater detail). Heavenly.
