Not too long ago our friends over at MakingStarWars.net posted a description of the costumes Princess Leia and Han Solo would be wearing in a publicity shot for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Now, they've done one better and posted a sketch that depicts Leia's outfit based on the image they saw. This isn't concept art, it is a essentially fan art based on the costume. That being said, I can confirm via our sources that the sketch is accurate.
Check it out below,
I quite like the design of the costume. It's reminiscent of various Rebel costumes (specifically the soldiers on the Tantive IV), but is still something completely new for Leia. It looks practical, which suggests to me that Leia has seen some action over the past thirty years, and hasn't been sitting behind a desk and going to formal banquets. I can't wait to see Carrie Fisher in the costume in The Force Awakens.
