In Return of the Jedi, the gangster Jabba the Hutt captured Princess Leia Organa and enslaved her. He dressed her in a luxurious and revealing metal bikini. It appeared on screen only briefly, but has ever since been an icon of geek fashion, imitated and altered many times.
Now you can own the original worn by Carrie Fisher. The auction house Profiles in History is offering it among 50 other Star Wars props for sale on October 1. Experts anticipate that it will sell for between $80,000 and $120,000.
