The bikini that launched a million geek fetishes has been sold for $96,000. Memorabilia site Profiles in History has sold the famous two-piece “Slave Leia” costume worn by Carrie Fisher in Return of the Jedi.

The auction catalog (direct link to PDF) reveals that the items “were used on set before being returned to the ILM model shop and replaced by altered versions, since several elements had to be resized due to Carrie Fisher’s weight loss during shooting.”

The Slave Leia costume wasn’t the high-ticket Star Wars piece in the auction, though—”Blockade Runner” from Episode IV: A New Hope (1977), the first ship to appear on screen in any Star Wars movie, went for $450,000, a new record for Star Wars memorabilia.
