Slave Leia- StarWars, Return of the Jedi
This costume was a gift to myself. I was in my last two months of deployment, very much looking forward to coming home. I had been thinking about it for a long time- how awesome it would be to have a metal bikini. And so I decided that this would be my gift to me: I was going to order this costume from Jamin Fite (leiasmetalbikini.com) and make it happen. I am SO glad that I did! The costume came in my first couple months of being home, and I quickly wanted to have photographs taken of this. I was at Ft Drum, NY, and thought "there's no way I'm going to find someone local that will get this!!" I was so wrong.. I searched the internet and stumbled across April McClintock. Immediately I loved her visions, her ability to catch mood, expression, and her artistic design that made no two of her shoots the same. I contacted her, and by doing so made one of the best decisions of my entire life! The photos on this page are all by April. I refuse to try to put up other versions of these photos without her mark on them, because all of these photos are copyright April McClintock and should remain so. I am simply sharing them to show the awesomeness of the costume and the amazing photography of my friend!
A short comparison of color vs black and white
The top three are different versions of the same shot. The next two sets are color vs. black and white. I love the color and lighting changes here!
