When I was eight years old I saw Return of the Jedi in Billings Montana. It made a big impression on me. How could you not love Carrie Fisher in that outfit. Wow!
The metal bikini isn't exclusive to Jedi, not by a long shot. It's been a mainstay in sci-fi 4-EVAH, just check out any Frazzetta painting or Dejah Thoris the Princess of Mars or even old Flash Gordon comics. It's been around for a hundred years and here's hoping it will be around for a hundred more.
