As we all know by now (and are deeply disheartened by) Star Wars lost its beloved Princess Leia yesterday. Having been a fan of Star Wars from a young age (pretty much a given for my generation ), it hit me pretty hard and I felt it fitting that I build something to commemorate her passing. I look back and realize that I didn't appreciate Leia (or Han, or C-3PO) as a character when I first saw the movies, only later having a better understanding of her awesomeness. Sadly, this MOC doesn't do Carrie the justice she deserves, as I didn't have another version of Leia to use as inspiration. All I had was the outfit she wore during Han and Luke's award ceremony at the end of A New Hope, in which Leia stood beside the other leaders of the Rebellion in a grand hall on Yavin IV. So, I used that scene as inspiration, incorporating the stone steps and foliage-entangled stone pillars into this small memorial piece. Given time, space, and more parts, I may revamp it later on to include more details and a few other characters, though I would rather keep the focus on Leia for this piece. For now, I'm content to keep this little reminder of our beloved Carrie Fisher. She's one with the Force now. Hope you enjoy. ^Image links to Flickr gallery^ Comments? Criticism? Cookies?
