Teeny-Weeny Star Wars Bikini

Jabba the Hutt wasn't the only one drooling when princess Leia stretched out before him in nothing but chains, a mermaid braid, and a skimpy metal bikini. Jabba kept her on a tight leash…until she choked him with that chain. Jabba probably liked that.

Remember what Princess Leia wore in that scene? You know…the iconic gold metallic outfit, which barely clad the toned, fit body of the kick-ass heroine. Well, the favorite slave attire for fashionable futuristic princesses complete with high-heel jerbas hide boots, and  flowing veils of rare Lashaa silk, draped at the front and back of the brass thong was auctioned off.

The slave girl bikini  was one of over 50 Star Wars items sold at an auction hosted by Profiles in History. The winning bid for the iconic get up was $96,000.

I guess this means Carrie fisher won't be wearing it for the new movie.

GSN TV's Steampunk Show

Have you seen this Game Show. It's cool. It's Steampunk. Makers on two teams compete against each
to see who builds the best Steampunk room. Last week, the theme was an Asian Steampunk bedroom.
Three episodes have aired so far and if you haven't seen them and have Comcast's on demand you can catch up. I do have Comcast...not that I like Comcast...but that's a whole other story. I have good reasons to not like Comcast.

But I do like Steampunk. And I like the Game show. I was sad at the guy, James, who was voted out on the last episode, I thought he was really good. But that's how it goes. He was the team captain and his team lost. There was drama between to lady costumers on his team. It was kind of funny actually.  The contestants are talented and I honestly enjoy the show.

It comes on GSTN on Wednesdays. Check it out at
