I've said it before: I'm not into "cosplay". But I do get a kick out of clever Star Wars t-shirts, dresses and accessories. EPBOT has a gallery of pictures from the recent Star Wars Celebration VI convention in Orlando showing women sporting funny and, in some cases, quite stylish Star Wars outfits. Follow the link.
An eagle-eyed Facebook friend of this blog has explained this lady's beachball Leia costume. It's the costume Carrie Fisher wore in a 1978 Saturday Night Live skit parodying the beach movies of Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. The skit was called "Beach Blanket Bimbo from Outer Space". Fisher played Leia, dressed in a gold bikini—long before anyone ever saw her in Slave Leia get-up at Jabba's palace.
You've got to hand it to this lady—I wish I knew who she was. It's a wonderfully obscure and knowing costume. I'm also impressed by my Facebook follower Carol Hutchings for spotting this.
