Princess Leia Halloween Tights

Be sexy in a galaxy far, far away

Princess Leia is one of the most recognizable women in cinematic history. A leader of the Rebel Alliance and princess of Alderaan, Leia’s style has inspired a generation of fans. For a flirty and fun summer cosplay, try Princess Leia’s famous Tatooine slave outfit on for size.

How to Make a Princess Leia Outfit

  1.  Hair. The long hair of our favorite rebel princess is plaited into one super long braid with a bun on top. Try a long wig or some extensions to get all that length or to fake the bun.Princess Leia drawing 
  2. A burgundy skirt and bikini. This flowing skirt needs to be long and sheer. While you can order premade versions of the skirt online, a DIY solution is to find some cheap drapes or curtains and cut them to create the veil. Secure around your waist with string bikini bottom to match your gray or tan bikini top.Peavey Premium pantyhose in suntan
  3. Legs. Worried about your exposed legs in Tatooine’s twin suns? A pair of Princes Leia costume tights from Hot Legs USA will hide any imperfections, help your legs looked toned, and keep your legs warm in cool conditions. The Peavey Premium Quality Pantyhose in Suntan will give you the sun-kissed look of someone who’s spent a few days on a pleasure barge. Get some comfy boots in gray and your legs are finished!Black bodysuit pantyhose
  4.  Body sleeve. Not comfortable baring it all? A nude body suit under your bikini and skirt will help give your skin a complete, toned appearance while keeping you from getting too cold or exposed.
  5. Details. The famous gold bikini has gold lining covering all the support wires and string ties. Finding a gold armband should be easy and adding gold colored piping around the belt and bikini is a fun activity for you and your own Han Solo.
