Character/Costume Description

Padmé Naberrie of Naboo was the
younger daughter of Ruwee and Jobal
Naberrie, and the sister of Sola
Naberrie. Later in her life, Amidala
became the secret wife of Jedi Knight
Anakin Skywalker and the mother of
Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo,
two of the most important figures in
Galactic history. She was also the
grandmother of Jaina, Jacen and Anakin
Solo, as well as Ben Skywalker.

It's made of layers of cardboard,
batting, hair wefts. I wrapped some fine
gauge tulle around the hair wefts to
keep the hair from fly-aways and to
make it easier to maintain the hair.
The crown is made of thermo-plastic
worbla and the blades are made of
layers of cardboard and thermo plastic
sheeting. Both crown and blades are
embellished with a layer of hand-
embossed gold and silver foil, and red
lace accents.
The half egg shapes are made of carved
styrofoam and is handpainted with gold
dimensional paint.
The spire of the headdress is hand
carved plastic, painted, and
embellished with red and gold
rhinestones, pearls, and gold embossed
The gem at the forehead is made of
sculpted plastic and a hand painted

I used dark red bengaline suiting for
the dress and faux red/black fur (with
makes it look dark brown) for the trim.
The sleeves are self-piped, but the body
of the dress is individually seamed and
The domes are made of thermo-plastic.

I installed a garden hose into the hem
of the dress to keep the circular shape.
I also made an under-structure that
helps further achieve the conical shape
of the dress.
The front tabs are hand painted with
gold dimensional paint.
The collar's details is made with satin
