Assuming you have a great deal of disposable income. Like, a lot.

Yes, the famous, infamous and iconic metal bikini that Carrie Fisher wore as Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi—while trapped as the enslaved sexy dancer of the alien/slug crimelord Jabba the Hutt—is going up for auction. It’s expected to sell for $80,000 to $120,000, so there’s probably no need for many of us to get too excited.

The ostentatiously named Hollywood memorabilia auction house Profiles in History will offer the bikini and several other items used in the making of the original Star Wars trilogy, including less salacious outfits, helmets, miniatures, shooting scripts, and more. The auction begins on September 29th but only runs through October 1st; you can check out the full catalog of (verrrry expensive) goodies to be sold here.

Question: How many people who will bid on the bikini are perverts who want the chance to indirectly touch Carrie Fisher’s boobs? Like, at least 20%, right?
