It’s not a secret how much I love Leia and I can’t help but make new costumes for her all the time now. (It may be the latest obsession.) Ever since I saw her new dress in the Marvel Comics a few years ago, it’s been on my wish list. It’s the perfect blend between her classic Senatorial look and something more fitting with her somewhat more action oriented role in the comics. It may have taken a lot of work combined with plenty of frustration about sewing spandex but it was totally worth it.
Shout out to my Alderaanian sister Nicole for being my Evaan Verlaine at Celebration!

Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, FL is this week and AHHHHH THAT MEANS WE GET THE LAST JEDI TRAILER SOON!!! Bria will be attending and even though she promised herself that this wouldn’t be a heavy costuming convention, she’s somehow got a full schedule anyways. You can see her costume schedule below and also catch her at the Carrie Fisher Memorial Gala on Thursday night and on the Women in a Galaxy Far, Far Away Panel on Sunday at 3pm on the Fan Stage.
Bria will also be covering the convention as press so keep an eye on both her Twitter and our WHR twitter for coverage of Celebration including interviews! Also… if you find Bria… she’s going to have some ridiculous pins on her to give away. It’s going to be great.
