Character/Costume Description

This costume, consisting of a mermaid skirt, a leather corset, a pearls and velvet ankles-lenght necklace,and leather fitted fingerless gauntlets, is worn in a scene where Anakin tries to convince Padme to have a relatinship with him. The Visual Dictionary says that it is non-official and reflects Padme's true feelings about Anakin, although she's doing her best to discourage him. During production, this is was known as costume P-7.

I made the skirt with a printed fabric, which is the exact replica of the pattern seen in the movie. I lined this fabric with a strong cotton to help give the shape of the mermaid tail. I made the corset for real, in lamb leather, steel bones, and specific cotton-corset-fabric, with the opening on the center front. The gloves are from the same lamb leather, linen with thin cotton (to prevent the leather from losing its shape, and also absord the sweat). The necklace with pearls was made on my command by a friend jeweler, and I added the velvet when I received it.
