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.

Tracer Cosplay by Kaitlyn Siragusa (Amouranth)

Tracer Cosplay - Amouranth

Tracer is from the Overwatch Video Game. 

With a unique ability to control the speed of her own passage through time, Tracer zips and blinks around the battlefield, eluding attackers and sneaking past defenses. 

A perfect skirmisher hero, Tracer is fragile but hard to hit, keeping one step ahead of her attackers while she harasses and harries the enemy team. 

Tracer excels at getting behind enemy lines, but it is inadvisable to move her through chokepoints. Should she find herself blinking into an ambush, she can rewind time to her position and state a few seconds earlier, giving her a second chance.

Tracer conceptually began with the idea of a hero that blinked across the map. She was one of the first three heroes developed for the game, alongside Reaper and Widowmaker. She is likened her to Spider-Man.

Currently, Tracer is the 'mascot character' of Overwatch, and its centerpiece hero. She has been called the "Rosetta Stone" of the game. Her design used to include a jacket.
