Two to kick off: Sting’s metal budgie-smuggler from Dune, or Leia’s metalkini from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi?
Does it surprise anybody that leiasmetalbikini.com exists? (I didn’t bother to visit, if anyone does please report) I note in passing that, judging by the evidence online, very few of the people who turn up to costume parties in the metalkini wear the slave-collar with chain – I wonder why not?
Here’s the one shot I do like of the Leia metalkini – Carrie Fisher and her stunt double Tracy Eddon catching some rays on set.
Anyway, back to costumes in general: the metal swimsuit is a classic offender, but these two are sadly far from the worst around. There’s probably something worse than metal swimsuits, too. Wotcha got?
