It occurs to me that we have enough active royalty now to make a base-level Delegation for the Galactic Senate. I know I saw Karen and Cleo rocking their Leia costumes at AwesomeCon, and Michelle will have her Padme approved soon.

So, are you folks interested? If so, what should we call ourselves? Amadalia

Doing a bit of brainstorming here. All of the other base-level detachments here have some tie to Maryland, so I've been playing with some ideas based on the state bird: Oriole.

Icterus Delegation
Aureolis Delegation

Or some in-universe orange birds:
Rdava Delegation
Avogwi Delegation

In-universe turtles:
Gorskin Delegation
Shiro Delegation

We could also go with some natural landmarks like:

Patomac Delegation
Susquehanna Delegation

Does anyone else have other ideas?

I don't have a costume that would be part of the Galactic Senate delegation (*cough* yet *cough*), but I love the names related to the Oriole. Since our Jedi temple references a Raven, I think having something Oriole related would be pretty awesome.

Icterus or Aureolis Delegation just sound awesome.

Obviously we all need to do a Padme’s Handmaids build. That seems easy, right? (Hah, I know it isn’t but I love those dresses)

I was chatting with Bria in Freedom Base (right over the border) about doing a Battle Handmaiden group build over the winter so that we could possibly celebrate the release of the new Padme book next spring (If we can convince them to do a signing around here. The author is all for it.)

I offer up my huge sewing room for the project. We can certainly turn it into an assembly line that plays to everyone's level of comfort with the actual sewing parts.

I've still got patterns from mine (in my size), but it's pretty easy to adapt to other sizes if you get the right basic jacket pattern.

Ooh - is that the maroon/burgundy velvet look? I adore that outfit - and would totally be interested in a build group for that Very Happy It would give me something else to work on besides hand embroidering my Librarian tabards (hahah... that is going to take forever).

I think it's the velvety-orange/red/yellow one?? I'm TOTALLY in on being a Padme Handmaiden!! OH BATTLE HANDMIADEN. STILL Count me in. I know Bria will be on board to. Let's do this!!

Yes! This beautiful outfit:



As we found out last week, I need to remake my pants, so I'll be sewing too. Haha.

I'll see if Bria can rally her group so that we can all put our heads together on when and how to get this rolling.

In the mean time, I stumbled across this trim, which is a ridiculously good match for the original.

I'd love to do a group of these handmaidens someday too, but that's another project for another day:

I'm part of Bria's battle handmaid interest group! So getting all of us connected together to do a huge group build would be amazing! As my sewing skills are fairly basic, this assembly line format sounds so AMAZING to me--as we can all contribute, people can learn more, and you have less a chance of screwing something more complicated up with others helping you along the way.

My sewing skills are... passable? I have a good sewing machine, an embroidery machine, and a dressform I'd be happy to help with the assembly line format of this Very Happy

Sooooooo none of this is confirmed yet so please please please PLEASE don't spread it around but... I feel pretty good about our chances of getting a signing here after some conversations I had at NYCC...

Also! I know Michelle said she got her fabric from Mood for her Battlemaiden outfit so I swung by their booth at NYCC and asked about a bulk discount. The guy I talked to said we'd have to call their online order department but we can likely get a wholesale price if we're buying 32+ yards. (I used that as a general number, figuring 4 people at the minimum.)
