Boushh Costume from Return of the Jedi

boushh cosplay 1

Princess Leia Organa wears a disguise in Return of the Jedi when she sneaks into Jabba’s Palace to rescue Han. She becomes the bounty hunter Boushh. It’s one of my favorite costumes in all of Star Wars and cosplayer Applenaut started her take on Boushh in 2008. Back then she purchased the costume from Clothears Costumes and used a kit to build the helmet. She recently updated the costume with a brand new helmet kit. Kits are a great option for those who want the perks of getting something partially pre-made but also something that requires customization and work. I think kits are especially handy if you don’t have the time, supplies, or inclination for sculpting and casting.

You can see a couple of in-progress pics below and more on Facebook.
