Senator Amidala Costume by Naboo-Girl Senator Amidala Costume by Naboo-Girl
*Updated with new photos!*

I made this costume to wear to the 2004 Denver Stafest which was a lot of fun. I entered it into the costume contest there and won second place in the Sci-fi Movie catagory. The costume is designed after the one Senator Amidala (Natalie Portman) wore in the movie Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. For more photos visit my website here

Beautiful! Futuristic but medieval. I often wonder how they kept those long huge skirts clean from dragging along in the filthy streets? Ive been making huge flared jeans lately if you want to have a look in my gallery?

Stunning. The detailing down to the fabric is fabulous. The only thing you seem to have "omitted" is boning of the bodice and slight padding on the shoulders of the cape, it'd give it just a hint more rigidity which would help keep a regal posture and keep the fabric from wrinkling and sagging...

But that's not a big issue. Just takes a trained eye to spot.

On the other hand, I doubt I could have done any better, so kudos! ^_^

That dress is gorgeous! It's hard to imagine that you only came in second with that! It loooks like you reached through the television screen and pulled the dress out of the movie itself! :XD: I'm favoriting this!

When I first saw this piece, I thought it was a picture of the costume actually used in the film. I didn't it was your own creation until I read the artist comments.
You did such a great job on it, the detail, the construction, even the headpiece! =D
I love it all!

I think this is the best senate gown I've seen. Can't understand how you got second.

What material did you use for the headpiece? It looks so amazing! And how did you make that embroidery?

I was thinking to do this too! But I have no idea where I could find that kind of fabric and it would have to be cheap too... Well, I try it someday!^^

That's really quite beautiful! I'm surprised it got second. The fabric is great; is it special ordered? It seems perfect! I also think your hair is fabulous--how on earth did you get it to defy gravity like that (no pun intended)? Is it a wig?

Nice stoic expressions too. ;D

Thanks! Yes, it is a special order burn-out velvet that came only in white that I then dyed blue. The head-piece is filled about 200 hundred little braids that I glue inside. Fake hair of course! Otherwise that would take forever to get my hair like that!
