I wonder if a lot of girls do that. I have a full wig. The hair hangs down about 12 inches from my shoulders. I could never get the clips to stay. There is a beauty school near here so they should be able to hook me up with a bun hair doo. Where did you keep your $ and id? I was thinking a place on the skirts clipped behind it or under the front or back plate?
Leia wears grey suede boots in the film (though I've seen quite a few costumers with gold sandals), you can see mine better in some other photos. I actually got a cheap pair of low-heeled ankle-boots and covered over and built them up with the suede. I made my own bikini, so I don't have any experience with how the LMB fits, so can't help you there sorry!
