A year in costumes.... continued - Padme's Sleeveless Mustafar Battle Uniform
Natalie Portman Episode III
In Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith - The awesome and beautiful Padme is preggers. Her wardrobe is just as stunning as when she is not with child.
I was commissioned to make an interpretation of the battle outfit Padme wore on Mustafar.
It is a sleeveless, tan, collared garment, possibly suede or suede cloth. It has leather belts that crisscross across the bust with a brooch and a buckle. The top is flared somewhat, fitted lighter pants, and high riding boots. She also is wearing gauntlets.
My interpretation of the Mustafar Sleeveless
I used a faun colored faux suede for the top. It has a high collar, high waist and double princess seams on the bust. The pant is actually a pair of cotton stretch pants I ordered from Dharma Trading Company, then dyed off white.
Naboo symbol on the wrong arm :P
I am BLESSED to own a AWESOME embroidery machine (which I had to sell body parts to get, j/k). So I was able to re-create the Naboo Symbol on her gauntlets. I put them on both then read after wards, it was only on one, the left one to be exact.
Brooch and Buckle
The brooch and the buckle were a little challenging and it was my first experience with the marvelous product - SCULPEY! I bought shimmery white colored Sculpey, cut and carved the brooch and buckle. Baked it, once it cooled, I used a brassy bronzey colored acrylic paint and hand painted it. Once it was dry, I was able to weave the buckle on to the faux leather straps I made and hot glued a pin on the back of the brooch.
Once again, It you are interested in this costume, please contact me regarding a commission. If you are interested in making and and have questions, I would be happy to help you! Just drop me a message. Thanks!
