Slave Leia by Kristen Hughey

Slave Leia by Kristen Hughey

Princess Leia Organa from Star Wars: Return of theJedi. 

The costume was worn in scenes at Jabba's Palace, aboard the Luxury sail barge Khetanna and during the skirmish at the Great Pit of CarkoonJabba Desilijic Tiure, the Hutt crime lord, forced Leia Organa to wear the costume after capturing her during her failed attempt to rescue the enslaved Han Solo. 

Like other scantily-clad dancers previously in his service, the imprisoned Leia was forced to lay before Jabba, kept in place by a chain held by the Hutt. Jabba kept her in this submissive position in front of all his subjects and henchmen as a means of humiliating the princess. 

After only one day of imprisonment, however, Organa used the same chain that imprisoned her to strangle Jabba the Hutt to death.
