Here’s where it starts getting good…
“It was like, not steel, but hard plastic, and if you stood behind me you could see straight to Florida. Ask Boba Fett.” – CARRIE FISHER
There were 2 versions of the costume: a hard plastic one for scenes when Carrie wouldn’t move and a rubber one for performing stunt work.
They asked me on the day if I wanted to have a stunt double kill Jabba. No! That’s the best time I ever had as an actor. And the only reason to go into acting is if you can kill a giant monster.” – CARRIE FISHER
The Slave Leia costume was introduced because Carrie Fisher complained about the boring costumes she wore in the first 2 films.
