I was going through the standards, and I realized we have two handmaiden standards that look very similar, if not the same.

Handmaiden experts, are these the same costume? If so, which standards should we keep?

Yes, it's the same, and this is probably the dress worn under the cloak: http://www.rebellegion.com/handmaiden-episode-i-the-phantom-menace-pre-senate-robe/

I'd say the first link (maroon cloak) has a better description and that one is written to fit with the pre-senate standard.

Of course, I'd also say it could be tweaked and to make the standards better. Smile The maroon cloak standard could have a note saying it's one of the handmaiden costumes used for Padmé's funeral.

According the dressing the galaxy book, in the thumbnails in the back there are 2 redish handmaiden costumes. One is the same as the maroon cloak used in EP1. The other is harder to tell what it is… it should be this one used at the funeral:

To me, that second standard reads like it is intended for be for this funeral costume. We just have the wrong photo, and maybe the labeling is misleading. The costume used in EP1 doesn’t have any pleats in it. There were several handmaiden costumes used at the funeral, so just having one labeled that way isn't really accurate.

Yeah, there's four different handmaiden costumes used at the funeral. If you want to describe the other red/maroon one, then a proper picture of it is needed.

I believe it is the same costume:
ROTS behind the scenes -

BTW, the images in those reference images on the pages you linked, Song of Amazon: the "scarf" is draped backwards on them... Whoever put up those displays should have draped the ends back over the shoulders, not forward.

Thanks ladies! That helps a lot. I will look into getting the reference images changed in the short term, and we can work on tweaking the standards in the long-term.
