Alright, sorry to dig up an old thread, but I had a question. And I apologize in advance if this has been said before and I missed it while looking through the thread.

I was looking through the standards on this costume and with the hooded cape, it says that the inside lining is Satin.

My question is this: why satin? Since this is a cartoon character, shouldn't it be based on color and sheen, not fabric choice?

Reason I'm asking is I found a beautiful blue that matches my trim and hangs amazingly well, but it isn't satin. Do I have to forgo that and use satin? I'm just curious. I'm not complaining, I'm just trying to understand the thinking.


I think satin was chosen becuase it is seen throughout Padme's wardrobe in the movies and stays with the feel of her movie costumes. Does the fabric you found have a slightly satiny sheen to it or is it completely matte?

Ahh, thanks.

It has a slight sheen, but not as much as a full-fledged satin would.
