Leia's Ceremonial Gown by LadyofRohan87 Leia's Ceremonial Gown by LadyofRohan87
My replica of Princess Leia's ceremonial gown, as seen at the end of A New Hope as she presents medals to Luke and Han on Yavin.

The entire costume was hand-made. The "winged" sleeves were completely hand-sewn and hemmed. Necklace was crafted from sculpy clay and painted with a Krylon silver leafing pen. Belt was created from vinyl, sheet metal, and button blanks and spray painted silver. The shoes were similarly painted silver... It was a lot of work, but totally worth being able to wear it to Star Wars Celebration IV!

Did you give Chewie a medal, or did you snub him?

This is amazing! I'm planning on cosplaying Leia in her ceremonial gown, so I'm looking at other cosplays for reference. Yours is outstanding. Nice work. :D

I am making this outfit for my sister because we're going down to Star Wars Weekends for her 16th and I was wondering how you achieved the braided bun look.

Oh, sure hon! Aww, that's so sweet :) I hope you have fun! I've done SWW a few times and it's amazing.

But yes, they're hair extensions. You can buy them at any kind of wig store... they have all kinds of colors. Basically, I bought three extensions. The ones piled on top of my head are two extensions braided, connected, and then stacked and shaped. It's trial and error but it stays on your head with bobby pins and hairspray XD My real hair is actually pulled back and twisted into a really high, tight, bun and the stack fits right over it so it kind of secures it on my head. Then, the long braid in the back is just one extension. A simple braid, which gets tucked and secured beneath the big stack. I hope that helps! <3

Thank-you so much. This helps a bunch. My sister just happens to have really short hair (by my definition) so this should be interesting. I relish the challenge!
