I've been currently building Padme's AOTC Geonosis/Battle look however as my partner is currently building their TCW armored Anakin Skywalker, we thought it would be nice to be able to "match" as it were... so here I am planning yet another costume.

I've been looking through the CRL and I've got a couple questions regarding wording...

The short is said to have "a section below the collar with four vertical pintucks" however I believe in the animated version it does not and sits a lot more centered... I could be wrong however that is how I am interpreting the animation as seen in the screen cap below:

Additionally, for the purple cloak, the cloak is listed as being a "medium purple thickly woven matte fabric" while the hat/veil is listed as being a "medium purple thickly woven matte fabric with an obvious abstract weave." I agree with it being thickly woven and matte, however, in the close up screencaps, I cant see anything denoting a definitive "abstract weave" as seen in AOTC...

It definitely has texture however it does not seem to be in a repeating pattern. Would a boiled wool as a base suffice as it most certainly has the texture and thickness needed?

I look forwards to hearing everyone's thoughts regarding this!

Hello. Smile

Good questions you have here. While this costume is clearly inspired by the AOTC one there are several differing points such as the pintucks and the wider armbands just to mention two. (Also note the padded arm and leg patches).
As long as you make it to reference and make sure to note you have made *this* version of the costume, not the movie one, you should be good.

Boiled wool might very well work, but I'd test how difficult it is to do the patterns on it first. It's a very uneven surface to work with and you might have trouble getting the Naboo symbols to stand out sharp. I could go with a linen look as well for this texture, maybe a linen-viscose mix. You'd still get a lot of texture, but have a more even surface to work with for the patterns.

You can go to this gallery for more references: http://www.senate.rebellegion.com/padme-amidala-the-clone-wars-violet-hood-battle-suit/

Btw: that purple cloak pattern is awesome! Those lighter lines would look great embroidered! Very Happy

What a great choice in costume! And matching outfits are always fun Smile

We have had several members clear this costume, so hopefully someone will be able to chime in and give some info in addition to the great advice Lora has given above Smile

Oh yes more Clone Wars Padme outfits!! I actually built this one myself, without the cloak though.

As Lora said there are similarities but the shirt has some differences. I have a closeup photo of my shirt details to hopefully help! I studied the show and movie so much to get the details right haha



As for the cloak fabric, I wouldn't do one that matches the live action weave. What you've mentioned would work well as long as you can get the design on it! Luckily with animated costumes you have some room for fabrics.

Also it's good to note we have redone these standards to be more accurate, as the old one kinda just took the live action wording without properly making all the right adjustments. You can find the revised standards here: http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=106393

Hope all this helps! This is one of my favorite costumes to wear so I can't wait to see your progress
