Hello!

I'm just wondering what's the best way to go about requesting that all instances of the word 'Slave' be replaced with 'Hutt-Slayer' on the CRL for the costume and the Rebel Legion website as a whole.

rebellegion.com/leia-organa-slave-outfit/

I can write up an explanation if needed, but I think it's pretty self explanatory.
Thank you!
-Kim

You made me smile...I've been calling mine Jabba-Slayer Leia here at home, or 'Sleiahhhhh' for short! Smile Think Hutt-Slayer rolls off the tongue better, though!

I personally think it is a great idea. It is a lot more respectful way to refer to Leia and the women who wear the costume. There will always be people that call it "Slave Leia," but we can lead the charge in giving it a more empowering name.

There's a poll up in the detachment. Smile Go vote if you haven't already done it.

Of course it's not my place to vote, but as the husband of a Slayer, my wife told me that I should post my idea and offer the title "Tatooine Leia".

Hoth Leia, Endor Leia, Bespin Leia, even Ceremonial (i.e. Throne Room) Leia, Tatooine Leia fits the location-based titling. Then the Profession-based such as Senator Leia, General Leia. I'm sure I'm missing a Leia that breaks that pattern... Sandstorm Leia is event-based, but could lump into location as you must be in a desert for said sandstorm.

"Tatooine Leia" removes much of the stigma in my mind and makes it as innocuous a title as the others.

Wish that notion could have made it into today's poll. AmyLeia told me about this the other night when she posted, saying I should post the idea myself. I should have acted earlier. Smile

As stated above, not my place, but "Tattooine Leia" fits in nicely with the other locations. Bespin, Endor, Hoth, etc...

I might be the only one disagreeing with the change.

I understand the current name can be demeaning, and "Hutt Slayer" sounds more empowering, but it'll take a lot of time for people to adjust to it.

In the book "Star Wars Costumes", the name of the costume is "Slave Dancer Outfit". Even though we never see Leia dancing, the costume definitely looks like she was a dancer for Jabba after Oola's death.

I personally call it "Slave Dancer". Maybe we can compromise with "Palace Dancer", but that's just me.

Thanks everyone for your input. We've put this up for a vote to the RLGS detachment, so we will see what is decided.

We polled the detachment, and they voted to keep the name "Slave Leia" but you are welcome to call it whatever you want. Mr. Green

The original sketches of the costume called it "Dancing Girl".
