This is a reference to my favorite story from the filming of the original Star Wars. From the entry on Peter Cushing (the actor who played Tarkin) on Wookieepedia: “During the filming of Star Wars, Cushing was provided with a pair of boots far too small to accommodate the actor’s size twelve feet. This caused a great deal of pain for him during shooting sessions, but the costume designers did not have enough time to get him another pair. As a result, he asked Lucas to film more close-up shots of him from the waist up and, after the director agreed, Cushing wore slippers during the scenes where his feet were not visible. Some of the actors who appeared in scenes with Cushing had trouble not laughing because of the shoes.”

He didn’t wear pink bunny slippers, but in the Witherverse, they show up better that way. Here’s a photo of Cushing wearing the slippers, and another of the slippers in a display case at the Peter Cushing Appreciation Society.
