Padmé Amidala’s queenly position in the Star Wars prequel trilogy meant she had a high number of wardrobe changes. She had to look the part, after all. Her looks have been replicated by cosplayers again and again and the picnic dress from Attack of the Clones is one I haven’t seen done in a while. Starbit Cosplay, also known as Ida, started work on her take on the costume in January. It incorporates different types of fabrics, embroidery, a corset — in short, it’s the sort of costume that offers all sorts of challenges. And Ida made every piece.
Ida finished the costume near the end of March just in time to get photos taken by Lake Geneva. It’s similar to lake country in Naboo and short of traveling to the filming location in Italy, maybe one of the most ideal places for a shoot. You can see a picture of the almost completed costume below.
