Hello and welcome to the Mustafar Padme Standards revision thread! The goal here is to rewrite these standards so that they make sense in the new format, to clarify things as needed, find and decide on what pictures we will be using, and get them shipped off the the Costumes Standards Committee!

For simplicity’s sake, I’ve started off only with rewording things at the moment. I have added not photos yet, but please share any you have!

Remember you do not have to be an approved RL member to chime in!
This format is ultimately what we’re shooting for.

Here’s a link to our current standard for this costume: newsite.rebellegion.com/padme-amidalaskywalker-episode-iii-revenge-of-the-sith-tan-mustafar-outfit/

And here it is reformatted to the new standard, but otherwise unaltered.

Quote:

Sleeveless tunic

  • small V-neckline with a tall, round folded collar
  • fitted inverted V empire-waist bodice and a full flared skirt extending to nearly mid-thigh of a sandy taupe or mushroom suede or suede cloth.
  • Small burnished gold Art Nouveau-like floral filigree pin at the center front V-neck point.
  • Costumer should appear pregnant.

Gauntlets

  • Long fitted opera length gauntlets that extend to the knuckles
  • Made of the same material as the tunic.
  • On the upper left gauntlet is a Naboo symbol in medium brown. The symbol may be embroidered or finely painted.

Harness

  • Cross-shaped harness of narrow belting in dark brown leather or faux leather; the belting crosses both in front and in back.
  • Large triangular burnished gold Art Nouveau-like floral filigree buckle attached to the center of the front harness cross.


Leggings

  • Fitted leggings of a beige or tan matte knit fabric with a seam down the center front and center back of each leg (total of four seams).

Boots

  • Low-heeled, riding style plain dark brown suede or faux suede boots.
  • Zippers must be hidden.

Hairstyle

  • Hair is parted in the center and pulled to the nape of the neck; portions of the hair are coiled into two large buns while the remainder is woven into a long braid tied off with a narrow length of dark brown leather strip.
  • Natural-occurring hair colors only, no bangs.



Some changes are needed to better suit the new format. Here are my suggestions, please chime in with yours or if you disagree with anything I’ve done. I’ve listed anything that was not explicitly mentioned in the standards previously as “optional”.

Thanks for getting this together. We do have some photos assembled here: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=95099 and here: http://www.senate.rebellegion.com/?portfolio=padme-amidala-revenge-of-the-sith-mustafar if anyone wants to take a stab at matching photos to pieces of the standard.

I'll have to disagree with putting the top stitching on the tunic in optional; you can't get those seams to look good or right without it. You really need those top stitches on it.

I'd also say to remove the word 'tan' as a color descriptor for the leggings; tan is a far too dark and yellow a color for them. Cream, ivory, beige would be good descriptors instead.

And the boots are not riding boots, so again I would remove that wording. They are simply tall rough leather, suede-look, or suede boots.
Riding boots have a different cut and describing all tall boots as riding boots is a bad habit in the RL. Time to weed it.

I‘ve just finished making this costume and have some difficulties drafting it without knowing the original collar use magnets as closure. I think Magnets (and perhaps snaps) are necessarily to achieve the round founded shape of the collar. Should it be in the standard to avoid further confusion in construction?

I also think it should be a required item, especially since it's also a pretty visible detail.

Agreed.

Good idea, I'll reword that this weekend.

That's something that should definitely be included in the resources section, and maybe an example of a member costume showing how it attaches along with the other photo references.

I give permission to use one of my photos of magnets on collar, if need be. Smile

Maybe I'm not seeing it but shouldn't it have "Costumer must appear pregnant" somewhere in the standard?

It absolutely should. Looks like I accidentally deleted when I was reformatting it. Thanks for catching that!

In regards to the boots, I'm going to go on the side of if it is matches close enough but has zippers, we look at accepting them. It took me 7 months of searching before I lucked out on a pair of used boots on Poshmark. I know this is also an area where other members/potential members have struggled. Maybe concealed zipper in some way can be allowed?

Oh, yeah. The usual 'inside zippers allowed' should be added. Smile As long as they match in color or are covered zippers are fine by me.

I've noticed a lot of people struggle with that too. Zippers are permitted per the current standard, but I've updated
Quote:
Zippers must be hidden.

Quote:
No visible laces or outside zippers. Inside zippers are permitted, and must be concealed or match the color of the boot.


to have the same wording as the Arena Padme standard draft right now.
