Padme's Gown from the Cut Family Scene in Attack of the Clones

I had a request for the outfit Padme wears when visiting her family when she goes to Tattoine in Star Wars Episode II. The scene was unfortunately cut.





The fabric is hand dyed. I purchased trocus shells and hand dyed them as well. They are adhered to ribbon and hand stitched to the fabric. The brooch is fashioned from sculpy clay, painted and buffed with silver Rub n Buff. The head piece is made from Wonderflex and sculpy clay. I hand painted it as well and used silver Rub n Buff.
