Queen Amidala Inspired by shesgonepostal Queen Amidala Inspired by shesgonepostal
My lovely friend ~hellovanity is a Star Wars fan, and wanted a Queen Padre Amidala inspired dress design inspired by her costumes. I searched through her many outfits, gowns and battle outfits - and went for a more girly look. Hey, it caught my eye. Try and guess which one I was inspired by. ;)

Wearing: White dress with embroidered details and light rose ruffled sleeves. White fasinator-headband + jeweled fan (to represent the collar on the actual gown) and white pointed toe flats

Hope you like it!! This is the first time I did anything transparent (the sleeves) so hopefully it looks good, I'm quite pleased with it.

medium used: coloured pencils and psp8.

This kind of looks like a nightie, a geisha babydoll design, especially with those legs. I recognized those sleeves immediately though, perhaps they could come off.

After I drew it I thought it had a geisha look to it too. I wonder if the original costume was inspired by japanese culture?

Do you think it's too much of a reference to the actual gown? I tried to make it different. The original actually didn't have sleeves, it was a cape from what I can remember.

Well, it's just the sleeve and that thing down the front. I think the fact Amidala is so well known to have geisha make-up is also a factor (yeah, they referenced japanese, chinese, and mongolian culture in designing Amidala's big stuff)

Yeah I think I might re-design this one then, it was my first "out of my comfort zone" illustration so I think I could probably do a better, more original job. Thanks for the input!

Ohh neat, I thought so.

Hmmm....
Oh! She has a really pretty 'nightgown' in Ep. III. It's really pretty blue nightgown from the scene where she is on the balcony with Anakin. I'd love to see what you do with it. It doesn't have to be sleepclothes either. XD
