"Yes, these are the Princess Leia items you've been looking for."
I love that Star Wars continues to inspire unique items and designs 35 years since its initial release. One of the most fun items recently brought to my attention by my friend Brad are these Galactic Princess Headphone Covers styled with faux hair and available in brunette, (blonde and ginger made to order), crafted by Jacquie Coe (aka Jacquie Longlegs).
Each purchase comes with two 6-inch in diameter buns with mesh backing, ready to glue permanently or attach temporarily to your own headphones (instructions come in package).
