Padme Cut Senate ScenePortrait by Verdaera Padme Cut Senate ScenePortrait by Verdaera
Here's my (nearly) finished Padme Cut Senate Scene Costume! This costume was in Star Wars: Episode II, but in the "deleted scenes" section. Please see my gallery for details on the different pieces of the gown.

I'm not entirely satisfied with it. I ran out of time to finish it properly, and was even still sewing beads on the morning before. I cheated on the drape part in the back and I had never even tried on the entire outfit before the morning I wore it at con. There are definite things I'd like to fix, especcially closure issues, but all in all it was very well received. I started it the day after Dragon*Con last year, so it took me a year to complete.

*Sorry for the watermark, I've had too many friends have pictures of their costumes stolen :p

I created a couple of bow-tie shapes out of buckram and wire, spray painted them, and then covered them with hair from a wig shop. It's kind of messy, but it worked!

was gonna ask if all the bead work was done by hand, but you answered that above... I know the bead work can be tedious. I used to make beaded jewelry.. with seed beads, years ago. I never beaded anything on material.
Anyway the costume is beautiful, you did a great job... wish I could sew. Did you do your on hair??? That looks great as well.

Wow, this is fantastic! I know nothing of costuming, I'm just a SW fan, and this is definitely Padme! I can imagine that being very difficult to make! The hair too! :clap:

This is gorgeous!! Vera, i've admired your costuming skills from afar, but I have to say: You are incredibly talented. I would be lucky to be half the costumer you are! :D

But yes, back to the costume: It's beautiful. I've honestly never been a fan of this costume much, but after following your progress on dA, it's brought me into the light. You've put so much hard work into making it, it's hard not to appreciate the costume more! I can't wait to see your "finished" version, with all the bits and pieces you want to fix up, I'm sure it'll look amazing - like all your other work! Well done!!
