Last month, auction house Profiles in History announced it would feature a number of high-profile pieces of movie memorabilia, including Princess Leia’s famous slave costume from the Star Wars saga. The item sold at auction on Friday, and the winning bid was a whopping $96,000.

Carrie Fisher famously wore the metal outfit in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. According to CNN, bidding opened Thursday at $80,000 for the costume, which included the collar, several chain links, and a letter of authenticity from Industrial Light and Magic designer Richard Miller.

The winning bidder was not named.

Despite this high sale, the record-setter of the auction was a miniature model of Leia’s “Blockade Runner.” The spaceship is the first craft seen in the Star Wars franchise and was sold for $450,000, having opened at $200,000. This broke the record for highest-selling Star Wars artifact in an auction.

Fisher will reprise her role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, due out in theaters on Dec. 18.
