She originally "wanted 25 yards of fabric to be flowing through the scene", but couldn't make it work. The outfit was first developed in sketches by Rodis-Jamero, assistant art director of visual effects for The Empire Strikes Back and the Return of the Jedi costume designer. The fact that [Leia's costume is] such a female sensual costume, I think is terrific. Bergey drawings of women in metal bikinis that served as putative armors. Rodgers and the staff created multiple versions of the metal bikini string to accommodate different scenes in the film, including a hard metal piece original bronze bra by Sculptor Richard Miller who is credited as "head jeweler" in the film credits for scenes in which Fisher remained still, and a rubber outfit she and stuntwoman Tracy Eddon could wear comfortably while performing stunts. You'll have to ask Boba Fett about that.

This is not the first time I have made this costume. A long time ago I made a sad, sorry version out of a clothes hanger and model magic. It…it was…well…it was something from the dark side. I really wanted to revisit the outfit one day and do it proper justice.
