How to Pose for Pictures In Your Princess Leia Costume

She's the Princess of Alderaan and a member of the Imperial Senate so it's safe to say that Princess Leia is a pretty big deal. So you know what that means, YOU have to pose like you're a big deal too. Kneel with your hands folded on your lap. Then look at the camera, tilt your head, and give a little smirk that says, 'yeaaaa that's right, I'm a princess!”
If you want to look a little fiercer in your pictures, try holding a weapon for a pose that will show off your strength. Or effortlessly throw your hands behind your head and let the camera snap away for a classic stance that only a cultural icon such as yourself could achieve. Finally, for an especially captivating image, look directly into the camera with intense eyes as if you were staring into the depths of Darth Vader's mask. The result will be intriguing and charming all at once!
Couples Costume Ideas to Pair With Princess Leia

Oh, Han Solo and Princess Leia! We saw the sparks fly between them as soon as the pair met on the Death Star. Their love slowly unfurled and soon Princess Leia was head over heels for the galactic pilot. Can you really blame the girl? Ladies always fall for the bad boy. Plus, she would have never fallen for the Wookie anyway.
Does your date prefer the dark side? Hey, to each their own! Your guy may feel the dark side of the force pulling him in. If that's the case, he'll have a blast wielding a sinister red lightsaber and doing his best Vader impersonation. You may get a little perturbed by all his heavy breathing, but at least he's trying to get into character (and thank goodness he didn't want to dress as Emperor Palpatine...yikes!). This is an unexpected Star Wars themed couple costume that will turn heads. Make sure to take a ton of pictures throughout the night because your crisp white costume will look great next to Darth's signature all black suit and cape.
