I’m super excited to share my proposal for Padme’s Tatooine Peasant revisions! I made this costume last year, and before I started, I spent lots of time sourcing images and doing research. I’m not very good when it comes to terminology or being concise, so if there is a better way to word something than the way I have here, please advise!

Here is the current standard:

Quote:

1. Undershirt with a jewel neckline and wide knuckle-length sleeves of a medium blue crinkled, homespun matte fabric. Wrapped about each lower forearm are strips of a grayish-tan homespun cloth with the edges left raw.

2. Sleeveless hip-length tunic of a medium heathered gray thick textured homespun matte fabric with a scoop neckline.

3. Wide soft belt (or narrow obi) of a medium blue crinkled, homespun matte fabric. Over this is a firmer belt of a dark brown textured homespun matte fabric with diagonal pintuck-like texture with an all-over pattern of very small tan buttonhole eyelets (eyelets maybe embroidered or finely painted). In addition, over the brown belt is a length of the medium blue crinkled, homespun matte fabric, gathered in the center front with a large round black buckle with a round red-orange cinnabar-like stone carved with an Art Deco-like arched motif.

4. Loose-fitting pants in a dark, muted plum/purple crinkled, homespun matte fabric. The lower legs are also wrapped in raw-edged strips of a dark, muted plum/purple homespun matte fabric.

5. Dark brown matte leather or leather-like flat-soled shoes or boots.

6. Hair is pulled away from the face and secured at the crown of the head. Two narrow braids encircle the head like a band, a large braided bun is wrapped at the crown of the head with several narrow braids descending from it along with a large section of hair left to hang loose and two narrow draped braids reaching from one side of the bun to the other. Naturally-occurring hair color only; no bangs.




Here is my revision with the updated format:

Quote:

Standard Name: Padme Naberrie Amidala

Character Description
Padmé Amidala Naberrie, commonly known as Padmé Amidala, was a human female politician who became a leading voice for peace and diplomacy during the final years of the Galactic Republic. Amidala was elected Queen of Naboo at the age of fourteen. Rising to galactic prominence after the Trade Federation invaded and occupied her homeworld of Naboo, she emerged as a leading member of the Galactic Senate during the Clone Wars. Through her furtive relationship and marriage to Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, she was the mother of the legendary Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan, the latter of whom followed in her footsteps as a champion for the democratic ideals of the Republic.

I do have a few notes that I would like to add:
- Regarding the shirt - I wanted to find a better way to describe the texture, especially the overlay. I left the overlay as “optional,” but it's actually what gives the shirt it’s textured appearance. What do you suggest?
- Between the shirt and the tunic descriptions, I wanted to add somewhere (or perhaps in both sections) that the tunic and the shirt necklines met at some point. Not sure if this is so important to add, or if I made sense, but it was a thought of mine!
- The labeling of this costume and sectioning was pretty difficult since there are lots of layers. If there is anything regarding my organization that should be changed, please let me know.
- I’m not sure if the use of photos was appropriate - I reused a lot of images for some parts because the resources on this costume are pretty limited. If there are any changes/other photos you think I should add to certain sections, please link them!
- Finally, I just wanted to note that it was really hard to source photos, especially for the buckle piece. There are photos from Padawansguide that really shows the detail on the red motif, but the sticky regarding the exhibit photos from PG said to be careful using those since we don’t have permission.
