Character/Costume Description

This is my new and much improved version of this costume.

This costume is based off of the gray and silver "Packing" gown worn by Senator Padme Amidala in Episode II. Silk velvet was hand dyed with custom blended colors for the gray bodice. Corset boning and herringbone coutil give the bodice smoothness and structure. Charcoal silk dupioni and velvet are hand couched with gray and gold cording on the front stomacher panel. The stomacher embroidery is heavily embellished with over 800 genuine turquoise, bone and seed beads. The charcoal silk dupioni skirt is yoked and pleated. The custom dyed gray crinkle silk georgette sleeves are bloused over antiqued silver leafed armbands with turquoise cabochons. The hair jewelry and armbands were all hand crafted. A headband and foam frame support the hairpiece. The gown was entirely draped and patterned from scratch to replicate the original.
