Way back before the AOTC release, I made a Dorme Senate costume. It was based on a picture from Celebration in IN and screencaps of the trailer.
It was accepted as formal, and technically meets the standards, but it's not what I would like it to be.

So, time to rebuild!

With so many good reference pics now available, I am going to try and improve on it as much as I can.

I don't have much to post about it yet, but I'm starting this thread:
1) For guidance, advice, and encouragement,
and
2) To force myself to keep focused on finishing it!

Yay! I can't wait! You make everything so pretty. Dorme also needs some more love.

5+ yards of purple velvet, dyed and drying in the playroom. Smile

Are you etching or embossing the velvet? They look beautiful.

It's more like an emboss/paint combination.

Fiber etching doesn't give me the same color/shimmer to the symbols, and neither does just embossing. In fact, I may have rushed the process a bit, because the pile didn't really flatten that much at all.

So, it's more like the process I used for the ROTS Padme Senate Cape-let.

I probably should have used a more white/ivory color for the painting part of it, but I like the shimmer/sparkle it gives.
