Halloween Inspiration: Star Wars
Posted on October 27 2013
Princess Leia is an iconic character that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser at your upcoming Halloween party, especially if the majority of attendees are 30-something dudes. If you do not want to attract the attention of this demographic, STEER CLEAR of this costume, or at least Liz Lemon it and go a little wacky to keep them from pawing at you all night long. The skimpiest version is pictured above and would be best executed in metallic or earth-toned lingerie with plenty of gold jewelry, a brown skirt with slits and flat boots. The Clara Whispering Contour Bra and Katherine Shining Bra by Stella McCartney are both great options. You could also opt for the Andromeda Bra or the Casablanca Underwire Bra with the right embellishments. From the swimwear department, the Pucker Boob Tube would work well with gold braid cinched around the center and wrapped around the neck, and Huit's Cleopatra Shorty Bikini would be just perfect for the bottoms. Intricate jewelry is a must, so load up on styles like the AK Vintage Body Chain or Cuff. This costume works best on brunettes with long hair, so whether you're draping a white sheet over yourself or rocking full-on lingerie, be sure to pay special attention to the corresponding braids or buns that match the outfit. For authenticity, be sure to quote some of the most memorable lines from the franchise--May the force be with you!
