When people ask me about this costume, I tell them it's basically a leather bathing suit with a loincloth. I really got to know leather making this costume.

Leela was a British science fiction character, one of Dr. Who's companions to travel with him in his TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space) through all space and time. Her answer to things was usually to kill them, being a barbarian. Assuming the role, then, no one bothered me while I wore this costume, and I won first prize at the costume contest at Dixie Trek in 1985 with it. Yeah, that was a while ago.Sigh.
