Character/Costume Description

Senator Padme Amidala
Naberrie, the secret wife of Jedi
Knight Anakin Skywalker. The
costume that had been chosen
as my initial debut had been her
2nd costume in the movie; the
Steel Blue Nightgown as worn on
the night after Anakin returned
from the Outer Rims & received
the news of her pregnancy. It is
also the nightgown she wore in
the movie when she was
comforting Anakin from his
nightmares.

The dress, made from Steel Blue
colored silk had taken
approximately 16 days to be
constructed. After hunting down
the closest material to the
original costume, the most
challenging part would be to
attach the 7 different parts &
bias-cut panels of the dress by
using the heirloom
stitching/faggoting technique.
With 5 stitching in the front and
2 on each side of the dress.

At the front side of the
sleeveless, floor-length dress,
there is a large silver on blue
brooch in the center, where
several spaghetti straps met and
which is also connected to 3
strands of pearls on either side
of the dress, stretching towards
the back. The back part of the
costume has a sort of cape that
is draped "waterfall" style and
pinned in place with two 3-pearl
drops clips. The cascading cape
is also top-stitched.

While the hairpiece is a small
tiara of silver that has vine
designs, holding the hair away
from face in a half ponytail.
