Leia in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back wouldn’t dare wear something like this on the arctic planet of Hoth. But Greater Boston area cosplayer Ellie Ann, a.k.a. Copper Chrome, braved the cold in this leotard, bare-legged version of the outfit Leia wears in the first half of the movie. Well, not quite, because Copper wore it to Rhode Island Comic Con back in November before that New England snow hits.
Copper says she’s been cosplaying since 2009 and, since then, has “had an incredible time growing as an artist and a person through my most cherished hobby.” Her many other interests are video games, video creation and fitness which this last one she says she tries integrating into her “cosplay in order to inspire others!” The photo was taken by Anthony Chodor of IAmThink.com, a gaming and comic book news website.
Did a Leotard take on Hoth Leia back in November and loved the result.
