(CNN) — Some lucky movie fan has their hands on a piece of “Star Wars” history.

The iconic bikini worn by Princess Leia in “Return of the Jedi” sold for a whopping $96,000 at the “Profiles of History” online auction Friday.

The skimpy costume made of “flexible, gold-painted red dense-urethane rubber” was famously worn by Carrie Fisher in the 1983 film.

It included the collar and chain links alien gangster Jabba the Hutt used to keep the kidnapped princess on a tight leash, as well as a letter of authenticity from the costume designer.

Bidding opened on Oct. 1 at $80,000.

The winning bidder was not named.
