I Am Not a Committee!

Here's another amazing lady I got to recreate in plush form. On top of being a princess and a rebellion leader, Leia always has the most kickass hair. She can be refined and diplomatic or fiery and sarcastic and this is one damsel that doesn't wait around for somebody else to rescue her.

Leia's style is elegant, but still practical for space adventuring. Her original outfit in A New Hope was always my favorite and comes coupled with the best hair. If you can't find the perfect dress, a large turtleneck shirt and some tailoring would probably get you close. Obviously I had to throw in some galaxy print tights, it is Star Wars after all. Tall boots with a low heel are pretty and practical for fleeing the Empire or going on diplomatic missions. A Rebel Alliance pendant and princessy crown earrings match with her silver belt. Cinnamon roll hair goes without saying.

In related Star Wars themed crafting, I had to share this little Gamorrean Guard. It was great to get him as a custom order since I've been wanting to make one for awhile. I had a feeling Gamorrean's would translate into plush really well and they totally do! Just look at that fugly little pig face and tell me you don't want to give him a big hug.

the only downside is that he had to get mailed off to his new home. I hear he is being well loved though.
