Princess Leia’s Gold Bikini: Hotness of an Epically Nerdy Magnitude

August 19, 2010 1 comment

So I’m not sure how I read about or ran across this website, but the awesomeness was just too much. I simply HAD to share it with all of you.

Now, recently I named the Star Wars Trilogy as #2 on my top 10 favourite sci-fi movies. And what I didn’t put in my explanation (I assumed it was understood) was that one of the reasons I loved Return of the Jedi was *drumroll* Princess Leia’s gold bikini.

Now I saw Return of the Jedi when I was just a young lad. It is quite possible that seeing this scene was the turning point in my thinking girls have cooties, to thinking they are beautiful.

Thanks Star Wars!

And it seems there is a website entirely dedicated to the gold bikini, and they even sell replicas.

Now, the full costume will run you over $450, but if you have a girlfriend willing to wear it, seems it could be a small price to pay :)

Oh, and in less important news,the Star Wars trilogies will be released on Blu-Ray next year. Sweeeet.
