Amidala's Peacock Dress by Naboo-Girl Amidala's Peacock Dress by Naboo-Girl
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!!!!

The dress is astonishingly lovely, I would wear it everyday...
but the smocking on those sleeves is divine !!!
, I mean they are so beautifully done, its almost insane of me to ask but "How'd you do it?"
I'm guessing its some kinda "Born with the skill" talent ?!
Beautiful work, should most certainly have won first prize.

Uwaaa! So pretty! <3 Would you be able to point me out to some sort of tutorial for the etching? I need to emboss/decorate some velvet for a cosplay, and the fibre-etch seems easier/more accurate than having to cut out a bunch of big rubber stamps and then iron over it.
