I’ve gotta say, I just really, really love the fact that it doesn’t even cross Tarkin’s mind that Leia might be lying to him when she says the rebel base is on Dantooine. It doesn’t even cross his mind that she has the courage—and the skill—to lie to his face, especially with Vader in the room with them.
But she does.
Capable Ladies of the Star Wars Expanded Universe
You can never go wrong by rounding up some of your friends for a costume group of some of the fantastic and capable ladies from the SWEU. It didn’t even matter that Leia and Winter were from before A New Hope while Iella and Mirax were from post-Return of the Jedi. We still had a fantastic time doing these costumes and this shoot especially since we got to recreate some choice comic book panels from Union and Agent of the Empire.
There are more pictures up over at WhiteHotRoom.com where Legends will always live on in our hearts.
Luke withdrew further into shadow. He tried to hide, but there was no way to hide what was in his mind—Leia was in pain. Her agony cried to him now, and his spirit cried with her. He tried to shut it out, to shut it up, but the cry was loud, and he couldn’t stifle it, couldn’t leave it alone, had to cradle it openly, to give it solace. (“Return of the Jedi” by James Kahn)
