I've been chatting with some folks about potentially getting a group of Amidalan commando handmaidens (from the Vader comic) together for Celebration Anaheim next year, so I figured I would start a research/build thread.


From left to right: Eirtae, Rabe, Sabe, Sache, Dorme

If folks would like to join us and don't want to be handmaidens, both Tonra and Typho play a big enough role in the comic to have enough images. There are several other background Amidalan humans and Gungans, but I'm not sure any have enough images to be an approved RL costume. Let me know if you want me to scan any of that too.

At this point I'd welcome multiples of any of the characters, as that seems within the spirit of the handmaidens in general.

Galleries for the handmaidens are here:
Dorme
Sache
Eirtae
Rabe
Sabe (main version)
Sabe (flashback holo version)

Natalie did quite a bit of research on Sabe's main outfit here, and there is a costume standard in the works for it here.

Sabe still plays the obvious decoy in stark creams and black, while the other four handmaidens are on a range of drab green, tan, gray, and dusty brown.

Some similarities between outfits:

-Eirtae and Rabe have the same tan, flared gloves.
-Sabe and Dorme have the same wide belt and buckle, with holster, but they have different pouch configurations.
-Eirtae, Sache, and Dorme have the same tan boot with the fold-over top.
-Rabe and Sache look like they have the same narrow black belt with silver rectangular clasp, though Sache has a lot more pouches
-Eirtae and Dorme have the same gray-ish taupe pants
-Sache and Rabe's pants are both more dull khaki, though their styles are different
-Dorme and Eirtae both carry short-barreled Naboo blasters
-Eirtae and Rabe both carry double-sided force pikes
-It looks like Sabe's main boots and holo boots are the same. Her pants and belt (give or take a holster and pouches) also look the same, except the pants get a pair of extra cargo pockets.

Those force pikes are going to be a challenge. Shocked

So, who wants to join? Even if you're not able to come to Celebration, I'd welcome side-by-side builds together over the internet.

I've decided I want to work on Sache for myself, and it looks like I'll be able to buy and modify a number of the pieces for her.

First up, I'm looking into potential sling backpacks, which is surprisingly hard to find that basic silhouette in a plain tan or taupe. I'll have to modify the strap of whatever I find.



Here are a couple of options from Amazon. Any thoughts?

1. Westend (right shape and color, a bit small)
2. ZMZIANG (I like the shape, but no idea about the size)
3. TOPEIUS (closer to the right size)
4. Q Qichuang (right size, but the front pocket is a funky shape)
5. SIMU (it's a little small, but about the right shape)
6. Emperia (not sure how I feel about faux leather, but it's a nice shape)
7. Topeius (I don't love the big black buckle on the back)


I could modify some elbow pads like these, or just make my own out of worbla.

I haven't had much luck on the boot front yet. Fold-top boots aren't that common. If the inside of the top is self-lined, something like this could potentially work:

These could potentially work, but they're pretty expensive:
