Changed to suit the new format. Some rewording and additions have been done, as noted in red text. I added some details to the gauntlets, not included in the previous standard as optional. Also added a make up section that we can expand upon a bit. I'm not super satisfied with the photos I have just yet, I will continue to add to those let me know if you have suggestions for better ones.

This looks great so far! Thanks for taking a stab at it. I just removed a couple "shoulds" and added the wig/extensions hair clause. Also added the character description.

I'll move this over to the "in progress" forum for further discussion.

Looks good, but I think we might want to add a bit about the corset shape to that part, such as the corset cutting straight across on the top with no visible/obvious curve, and going down into a point on the bottom.

We could also add in under optionals that the strands ends about a hand's length above the hem of the skirts. (Just a thought).

Did the gauntlets add in they should rise to the same height as the corset's upper edge? If not, I think that should be added.

And I think we could write more about the makeup. Smile
Eyebrows are gently drawn in with a pencil, lips are colored in coral or similar color.
Makeup in general is kept light and fairly neutral except for the slightly smoky eyes.

I'm going to add to Lora that the make up is a bit confusing. I would specify that is is cool toned neutrals that were used for the smoky eye initially (dark grays) so maybe add that gray tones are preferred if we are going to specify that much detail on make up.

Or we could simply say that the make up should be simple and mostly neutral with a subtle smoky eye.

I would also like to add a bit more into the hair styling specifically that the hair is twisted back from just behind each ear joining into a low three strand braid at the nape of the neck with a narrow piece coiled along the length of the braid.

Great additions. How about

Quote:

- The neckline of the corset is straight with no obvious curve.

- The bottom of the corset is pointed in both the front and back.


...I feel like there might be a more technical terms here to use for the top and bottom of a corset, but I can't for the life of me find if there is.

I think this could be reworded in the required section, since length is already listed and it says "nearly" right now, which to me reads that it comes closer to the hem than it actually does.

Quote:

-Many lengths of black velvet cord and strands of black jet beads extend from the medallion nearly to the hem down the center front.

Perhaps...
Quote:

-Many lengths of black velvet cord and strands of black jet beads extend from the medallion to approximately a hand's width from the bottom of the hem.

Just says opera length right now, we could specify with.

Make up I left intentionally vague as a place holder for discussion and could definitely use expansion. I agree cool toned grays were used on Natalie, but do we want to make that a requirement, or leave a little wiggle room for people to use other greys and neutrals that might better suit their skin tone?

How about makeup being optional, saying that it is in gray tones? Also, adding in your suggested changes.

I like simply saying that the makeup is neutral with smokey grey eyes. Smile
And I think we always put makeup (unless unique) under optional.



Quote:

- The neckline of the corset is straight with no obvious curve.

- The bottom of the corset is pointed in both the front and back.


I like it. Smile



Quote:

-Many lengths of black velvet cord and strands of black jet beads extend from the medallion to approximately a hand's length from the bottom of the hem.


I changed 'width' to 'length', but otherwise it is the same as your suggestion. Smile



Quote:
-The gauntlets extend to the top of the corset.


Removed the 'do not', because I prefer neutral or positive wording over negative wording. Smile

Good additions! I've also been thinking maybe we should include text about the kind of button used for the gauntlets, since buttons come in so many shapes and sizes. I've been trying to find more shots of the gloves, but haven't had any luck yet. I'm thinking they might be some kind of satin buttons though? Maybe just "black, round-top buttons"?

That's a good idea. I think most of Padmé's buttons tend to be covered in matching fabric to whatever she's wearing.

Kind of late to this and my apologies but to note on the makeup, I have a breakdown of the exact makeup used on Natalie in the film. The eyeshadow is Mac eyeshadow in "Bark" on the lids and "Quarry" on the browbone.

Quarry


Bark


This is direct from the Makeup411.com website back in 2008 who posted an entire makeup breakdown direct from Leslie Vanderwalt.

It's not gray but a purple/brown color. Not sure how specific we want to be but that would be what was actually used.

We could change it to 'dark brown' in the description. Smile

And I have one note I think we should add to the corset point:
Note: It is best to make the corset in two parts; one sturdy corset with boning, one corset cover of the black leather without boning channels.

A recent discussion elsewhere made me realize it was probably a good idea to add in that it's not actually one corset, but two over each other.

Otherwise I think this looks good. Smile

Definitely agree on that Lora. I think it's important that the corset has no visible boning channels alongside the bottom point and straight top. Maybe adding a suggestion making it in two parts - boned corset then outer corset.

Do you have a way back link or other archive, that would be terrific to see!

This is a good point, I know that's mentioned in the Padawan's Guide and also in an old TFN discussion thread I saw.
