Sascha Steinbach/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Star Wars fanatics can take home a piece of movie history next month if they have around $80,000 to $120,000 to spend.
That is the expected amount the gold metal bikini that Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, wore in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi is expected to go for when it hits the auction block.
The iconic costume, which Princess Leia wore while being enslaved by Jabba the Hutt, is being auctioned by Profiles in History on Oct. 1, along with other Star Wars memorabilia and more from movies like Jurassic Park and Back to the Future.
“Without question, Carrie Fisher's ‘Slave Leia' costume is among the most memorable in the Star Wars franchise,” the auction catalog reads. “This ensemble represents the most important and complete compilation of original Star Wars pieces to have survived production in private hands.”
The bikini ensemble is being auctioned off along with a letter of authencity from the costume's maker, Richard Miller, and original photos, notes and pencil drawings.
Also included is a “Womens Measurement Chart” that shows the penciled-in measurements for Fisher, who brought Princess Leia to life.
The 5-feet-1-inch tall Fisher, now 58, weighed 89 pounds at the time of the movie's filming, the chart reveals.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in which Fisher stars, opens Dec. 18. The film will be released by Disney, the parent company of ABC News and Lucasfilm.
