Ever since 2011 — when I convinced a then-coworker to don Slave Leia’s duds for giggles/my amusement — Genderbent Slave Leia has taken over the cosplay community. But no one commits more fully to the cause than Bearded Leia.

Case in point. Back in January, Bearded Leia attended the Salt Lake City Comic-Con and was captured for all time standing next to a pretty amazing Jabba the Hutt prop.
