Zam Wesell didn’t get a big enough role in Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The shapeshifting bounty hunter appeared briefly and was killed. Despite her short time on screen, she made an impression. Several cosplayers have replicated the character’s costume, including RPF user Cat-Angel-A. She spent approximately four months working on the costume using latex, fiberglass, plasticina, plexiglass, leather, and more. It’s hard to see in the above photo of the finished costume, but the character has a leather skirt comprised of several sqaures of leather that are all slightly different shades of purple. They had to be cut and painted, and it looks like they were stitched together by hand. She did an amazing job putting together the ensemble.
