One of many of Amidala's dresses from Star Wars Episode III. LOL This one was unfortunately was only in a scene that was cut from the movie, but its on the poster!
Forteen months in the making, I made this to wear to Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angles at the end of May. I won second place in the Glorious Gowns catagory in one of the two costume contests they held there!
The underdress is made from copper and blue shot silk that I pleated and smock by hand. For the overcoat, I started off with white velvet that I dyed the two different colors and then etched out the peacock eye pattern into with a chemical called fibre etch. The headpiece is made out of my favorite stuff
craft foam!!! I made all the beaded tassels and embroidered all the cording patterns on each of the overcoat panels. So much fun!!!!
