When cosplayers make a Princess Leia costume, they usually opt for an ensemble from the films. That’s obviously fine, but I also like when people go outside the box a little. Stacey Rebecca based her recent Leia Organa costume on the jumpsuit and vest ensemble we saw Leia wear in Marvel’s Princess Leia comic. She’s matched her hairstyle/wig to the comic and built a replica of the X-wing pilot helmet Leia carries too. You can see a picture of the helmet just below. Stacey says:
The white stuff is just your generic white filler (mine is from the 99p store!) I’ve also used car body filler underneath the black Worbla which is much sturdier and can fill huge spaces but also very toxic and makes your shit heavy as f***. The cheap white stuff is usually fine for little cracks.
