Dress Like a Senator with This Padmé Amidala How-To
There is not enough Padmé Amidala in the world. Period. I’m always happy to see cosplayers tackle costumes based on the character that originated in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. Alyson Tabbitha, who you might remember from her female Titan cosplay, created a replica of Padmé’s look from the end of Attack of the Clones. She’s wearing the white jumpsuit when she fights in the Geonosis arena alongside Anakin and Obi-Wan. In the above video, Alyson goes over the costume, makeup, and hair basics for her Padmé ensemble.
