Padme Steel Blue Night Gown ROTS Cosplay by AmmieChan Padme Steel Blue Night Gown ROTS Cosplay by AmmieChan
Back when Revenge of the Sith came out in 2005, I went to the theater opening night, saw this outfit and immediately knew I wanted it. At the time, I felt my sewing skills weren't well enough to figure out how to put this together, so I put it on the back burner. More than 10 years later, I decided to finally make it; 2 days later the costume was complete. The entire dress is made using many reference photos, a lot of help from the break down on Padawan's guide and the CRL on the Rebel Legion website. The whole dress is made of a steel blue bridal satin, bias cut and fully lined with a peach/nude lining. I hand stitched the decorative stitching all down the front of each panel. I made the brooch with sculpy clay. I even made the hair piece which is several hair weaves sewn onto a mesh net. It's worn over my real hair which is tied in a bun. The tiara is made of pearly art worbla. The juniper snippet is made of sculpy as well. I also made Anakin's costume as well, cosplayed by my friend, Grayson Grid Cosplay. George Lucas....is...well, George Lucas aka Al. These photos as re from March Toronto Comic Con 2018. A big Thanks to Very Frank Pictures for these lovely photos!

Your dress turned out so well! The beading detail really brings it over the top. :3 The Anakin costume looks so crisp and nice as well! Love seeing more of your work. (^_^)

Thanks Becky! All the beads and heirloom stitching down the front were time consuming but worth it! I've made a lot of Jedi costumes recently, the Anakin one is a different look from the rest so it was pretty fun to make! I'll keep uploading more stuff, stay tuned!

Thanks! I research costumes thoroughly before sewing them together just to try and capture every detail.  Al is Mr. Lucas' brother from another mother for sure! Star Wars fans go bonkers at Conventions when they see him. He's been mistaken for George on several occasions!

I think I see where her daughter got her taste for elaborate gowns from.

Ha ha oh I know right?! Its hard to believe this gown is suppose to be a night gown. Looks more like a fancy dress for a formal occasion lol

How would you sleep in that thing and not fret you'd ruin it or something?

I did see an amusing comic where Anakin and Padme kept the twins and remained themselves, but were really out of their league when it came to raising children, and eventually sought psychiatric help. I'll see if I can find it for you :)

Thanks you! Aside from the long cape in the back, this costume is pretty comfy to wear!
