Princess Leia's bikini, $30,000 minimum

Props used on the sets of Star Wars films continue to sell at auction, and not for nothing.

After Han Solo's (Harrison Ford) jacket in The Empire Strikes Back, it's a lighter but more legendary piece of clothing that is today up for auction: the famous golden-brown “bikini” worn by the Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) during her detention by Jabba in Return of the Jedi.

The garment is on sale for a starting price of $30,000 on the Heritage Auctions website. Interested parties have until July 25 to raise their bids. In detail, the set consists of a bra, a two-piece bikini, two rings on the hips, an armband and a bracelet.

"The bikini bra is a primitive version made of rigid resin and used during production, as evidenced by repairs on the board and glue residue inside, to add material to make it more comfortable for Fisher," explains the description of the 'object, designed at the time by Richard Miller (head sculptor at ILM) and Nilo Rodis-Jamero (costume designer on the film).
