A fan once shouted at Carrie Fisher that he loved her. She was quick to respond that he loved how Princess Leia looked in her gold and red slave bikini outfit and not her. In case you have forgotten (and how could you?), Fisher wore the skimpy outfit in “Return of the Jedi.”
If you have enough money, the Southern California based Profiles in History will be selling several “Star Wars” collectibles during its auction Sept. 29 and 30 plus Oct. 1. The actual slave outfit Fisher wore will be on the auction block. It is expected to go for between $80,000 and $120,000.
My prediction is that it will go for a much higher price.
Also going on the auction bloc is a screen used Rebel Fleet Trooper helmet from “A New Hope” that is expected to sell for between $150,000-$250,000.
