I had to share this- I ran into this person at CV wearing a costume based on an unproduced large size Leia action design. For some reason I just love this design- very nostalgic and well executed.

Her name is Lydia Smith and she's not a RL member (yet).

Enjoy!

I remember said figure. Although it's an oddity, I kinda like the style of it. *g*

Also: Lydia's buns ware well-made. I she wearing a wig or is it all her own hear?

That's a really cool costume! I love the poncho. And I think those are wig attachment things making up the buns. There is a slight difference in the color of the hair on her head and the hair in her buns.

I can't speak to the hair issue at all- I just know it looked great in person as well.

I'm going to drop her a note to let her know about this thread- hopefully she'll join the boards to answer some questions!

Very awesome! I love when folks do costumes like this. It takes a real fan to appreciate it. Wink Mr. Green

And she wears the buns quite well!

Love it! Boots, "blue jeans", and a poncho. So simple yet fun!

The lady in the photo pulls it off well.

Oh, my. Shocked

I've never seen all those Disco Era costumes.

What is number 1? Fire suit Leia?
