SWCReview Episode II – Attack of the Anal Retentive Geek

March 14, 2008

After Brent’s comment on the previous post, I feel the need to compare and contrast. Hehe.

Here is the nasty cosplay Leia:


Note the sharp bone protrusions about the shoulder area, the horrible posture, and no signs of excess skin or fatty matter around the tummy and waist.

Here is the real Leia:

Not the ugliest duckling at the time.

Notice there is no sharp distinction of skeletal structure around her shoulders, her posture is much more appealing, and there are obvious indications of shapeliness around her stomach and hips.

I don’t think it’s fair to say Carrie Fisher was as haggard looking as that cosplayer. Fisher is significantly more robust (in a good way to be sure). I also think it important to note that the producers were nagging her incessantly throughout production to lose weight. Why, is beyond me. As was your original point, she likely could have used a few more pounds herself.

    Alright, granted Leia was better. But not by much. Other than her face (which I stated in the last one) there isn’t a whole lot more to go on. If I picking, it is a simple choice, Leia, but with little gain. A picture is worth a 1000 words…except these where there just isn’t that much to talk about. You get the skinny girl to stand up straighter, and do a few crunches and I bet you’re looking at a dead tie.
