Slave leia

lead_large

If there’s one thing that the original Star Wars trilogy teaches us about Carrie Fisher’s character of Princess Leia Organa, it’s that she is one fierce female. Outspoken, battle-ready and highly intelligent, she held her own both alongside and against Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo, and Jabba the Hutt. All of this empowering character building falls apart, however, with the infamous “Slave Leia” wardrobe. After being captured by Jabba the Hutt, Leia is forced to wear a skimpy bikini-like costume. She totally kicks ass and frees herself, but that image was enough to cause controversy. (more…)

Most fans would be surprised to find anything Star Wars that they haven’t seen yet. The Internet every now and then, pops up something from days gone by to remind us all why Carrie Fisher became every nerd fan-boy and quite a few fan girls, ultimate fantasy.

There’s little wonder how she spawned a whole generation of male sexual fantasies. Just look at any popular nerdy shows and you’ll usually find one of the girlfriends dressed up as Slave Leia at some point. It’s one of the reasons I watch The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco‘s Slave Leia day is inevitable and will undoubtedly be incredible.

UPDATE: Apparently I suffered a major brain fart this morning forgetting this PSA Kally Cooco was in . . . enjoy.

Here’s a gallery of celebrity Slave Leia’s:

Kinect Star Wars is easily the most anticipated Kinect game yet. I know my Kinect has been gathering dust waiting for its release. Frustratingly, the release date was pushed from late 2011 to early 2012 with Amazon now listing the official release date as April 3rd. And dammit, if Microsoft and LucasArts know what’s good for them I will have the game in my hands come April. I need to pretend I’m a Jedi and look like a fool while doing it!

We’ve only been able to see bits and pieces of the game thanks to trailers and the E3 presentation, but this video of a game demonstration reveals more of what kind of gameplay will be available. In addition to being able to weild the force players can pod race (1:07 mark), rampage through Mos Eisley as a rancor (2:45) and dance with slave girls in Jabba’s Palace (3:40).

Yup, there is a dancing component a la Just Dance or Dance Central. And you thought the lightsaber fighting would make you look like you’re spasming like the Star Wars kid.

Let’s be honest here, there is one reason and one reason only to include Leia in her metal slave bikini dancing. Fan service. Thanknyou LucasArts, you know what 13 year old boys want more than lightsabers and mind powers.

Me? I’m way more excited to tear shit up as a rancor! I think that’s the most ingenius bit of extra gameplay I’ve seen yet!

Would you like to spend a day on the star ship, Enterprise!? Of course you would, you little Trekkie bastard. Thanks to youtuber, crysknife007, you can have the calming, ambient engine noise of an idling NCC 1701-D play on a 24-hour loop. Then just close your eyes and be whisked away to the future.

Carrie Fisher will forever be remembered as the fiesty rebel leader and princess from Alderaan, and she’ll always be compared to how she looked back in 1983 when she donned the now famous metal bikini. We’ve heard the horror stories of how she had to starve herself just to have the confidence to slip it on, so what would make her want to wear it again?

Jenny Craig. Fisher is now a spokesperson and success story for the weight loss program as she has lost 50lbs in the passed nine months! Woot! Way to go, Carrie.

Recently interviewed on The Today Show, Fisher spoke about her struggles with her weight, being forever associated with Leia and mentioned there’s even a Princess Leia strain of marijuana! Hmm…wonder where she learned that tid-bit?

Watch the whole interview below, but the Princess Leia talk begins around the four minute mark.

What d’ya think about Fisher sporting the metal bikini, again? I’m all for it, I’m all, “You go girl!” It’s something I don’t think I’d ever have the balls to wear.

Great art can be found all over the internet, but so can crazy shit like chicken nugget sexcapades. We see tons of awesome things on a daily basis, but we’re fuckin’ lazy nerd bastards, so they just get rounded up once a week for your fondling pleasure.

Sadly, due to the SDCC being the big hitter this week, it’s a slow time for nerd art so here’s what we’ve got for you this time around!

Darick Massen has created a real life Koopa Paratroopa. Well, not “real life”, exactly, seeing as it’s dead and stuffed, but you get the point. This taxidermy piece is his submission for an upcoming video game art show.

Juuuuuuump!

Kaley Cuoco’s Nerdtastic PSA – Slave Leia


Hot on the heels of Nathan Fillion’s “Swamp Ass” PSA comes Kaley Cuoco of Big Bang Theory fame with her Nerdgastic Break PSA – “Slave Leia.” I personally don’t think this is a real problem. As far as I, and many other panting, sweaty, semi-creepy convention and or party goers there can NEVER be enough Slave Leia’s. Please feel free to Google “Slave Leia Car Wash” for convincing evidence. I will heartily agree though, that variety is, much like the spice of Dune, a great way to crank up a party.

Caprica's Zoe rocks it as Slave Leia in geek-dream music video

Tonight I’m frakking you. That’s my pick-up line. It never works. Of course, if I was Alessandra Torressani of Caprica and said that, there would be a lot of bent wookies, if you know what I mean.

OK kids, gonna keep this real short. Scifi Music Spoof Video. Torressani in Slave Leia Costume. Rapping from Big Bang Theory‘s Raj. More Nerd Pop Culture References and Cameos Than You Can Shake a Stick At. Or, as break.com likes to put it “A geek fantasy comes to life when one lucky nerd finds himself in Sci-fi’s hottest nightclub with every girl you’d ever want to frak.”

Enjoy.
