Anakin and Padmé Couple Cosplay

Anakin and Padme costumes 1

David and Amanda went to Comic-Con as Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. Amanda thought Padmé’s costume from the end of Revenge of the Sith would be ideal since she’s seven months pregnant. She made both the costumes for the convention and detailed the builds of both Anakin and Padmé at her blog. You can see some pics of the Padmé construction below.

She referenced photos from a museum exhibit and used the Rebel Legion’s guide to constructing the costume. She used soft suede mocha, some double knit ivory, and microsuede to make the leggings and tunic. She made her own pattern for the shirt. She said:

I did not use a pattern for the shirt because I couldn’t find one that was close enough that I could just adjust it. Instead, I put a cover on my dress form and stuffed it with Poly-Fil so it matched my pregnant measurements. Then I used scrap fabric to pin the pieces how I wanted it to look onto the dress form, and used that as my pattern. I seam finished by top stitching, and it closes in the back with an invisible zipper.

The collar I cut out a moon-shaped semi-circle and sewed it onto the shirt. I hot glued the front and back of the collar together so they wouldn’t separate and wrinkle when I was wearing it. I sewed the collar on to the shirt right sides together, then top stitched with the seam folded towards the shirt to help the collar stand up. I didn’t sew the collar to the shirt at the very back, which left a hole a few inches wide so that the invisible zipper can zip all the way up.
