dressing a galaxy : Queen Amidala throne room gown

“Because we were going to have one actress playing a duel role in the film, we had to design costumes for her as the Queen that would serve to hide her identity.” The complexity and size of the dress, however, lead to a difficult, involved construction. McCaig suggested to George Lucas that they design a dress with ‘lanterns’ in it, and while Lucas responded skeptically, he allowed the dress to be attempted. Consequently, for eight weeks and for a cost of $60,000 the costuming department strived to make this dress work. Construction began with an undergarment shaped like an ice-cream cone that was fitted perfectly to Natalie Portman. Several layers of canvas were needed to not only maintain the bell shape, but to support the weight of the wires and lights connected to the batteries necessary to light-up the dress. And while the costume was originally going to be velvet, lighting issues mandated a change to silk. The headdress was a complex construction as well. Intricate gold work covered the headdress while vintage red lace was used as an overlay on the blade-shaped side panels. Similar to the Eastern influence of many of the other TPM gowns, Trisha Biggar felt this ensemble had a “a sort of Chinese Imperial feel.”

pvrplerain asked: Hello! I recently found Bria's awesome Echo cosplay from about 10 mnths ago and I wanted to ask real quick: where did you/she get the pants? I'm planning to cosplay a variation of Echo this summer, but I can't figure out what type of pants to buy that look as realistic as Bria's (I've been looking at matte leggings, spandex workout pants, jeans, etc., but no dice.) If you could maybe point me in the right direction, that would be much appreciated. If not, that's a-okay as well! Thanks! :)

Hi there! First off, thank you for thinking that my Echo was awesome!

As for the pants, they were mostly luck. I got them from an Express outlet almost three years ago for an absurdly low price. They’re skinny pants/”leggings” that were a part of Express’s Minus the Leather line. I’m unsure if you’d still be able to find then though. But they’re just fake leather really tight pants.

Hopefully this is helpful? If not, feel free to shoot us another ask!
