Is that the one from TPM when it's Queen Amidala.

Heehee....just do it lah if you got the money and time (occasionally body). ;) I got a number of her outfits on my list but until now only a few done, rest still no sight or as cloths. :oops:


Nope. That's purple. Actually I realised I phrased it wrongly. It's the AOTC one (they are all AOTC), what Padawan's Guide calls Family Gown. Yuppers.

Darsha, if a guy is an idiot, whatever you do will not improve the situation.

How about Leia's white outfit from A New Hope.... and of course, you'll need the croissant hairdo to go along with that :)

I don't mind a bun hairdo but white is a bit too much, in case...:lol:

That isn't really a nice one to wear to prom though. Too shapeless.

Haldir, Haha I think so far the person who did it really well, and is still in the process (if I'm not wrong) is kaydee. It looks really really good...and she put in so much effort it scares me. LOL

Darsha, Padme has so many gowns! Pick one! :D Or even one of her nightgowns...! Check out Padawan's Guide. :)

Padme's tatooine outfit is a very nice choice, and not too difficult to make. Although I don't know how 'instansly recognisable' it is a SW costume...

Image

Her Pastel lake Costume is of course more complicated, but have a better chance of being recognised.

Image

Another costume which is not too hard to make, and instantly recognisable , is her battle outfit.

ImageImage

Its elegant, show no skin(unless you wanna do the ripped version), and well, if anyone don't know what outfit it is give me their address and I'll mail over a copy of AOTC for their viewing pleasure...But in return they'll have to email me their pic so I can paste it on fanforce.net's 'wall of shame' :lol:

Here's a simple way to make the shin guards:

I didn't know the cape on Padme's battle outfit had a hood attachment. Is this canon or creative liberty from the fans? But anyway it has a nice 'wu-xia' ('martial chivalry' from period flicks) feel to it.

The hood's canon, but never used on screen. Here're some production pics.
