Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace
Character: Padmé Naberrie
Variant: Handmaiden battle
Debut: July 2007
The frock coat and the pants are made of ruby-colored cotton velvet. The frock coat has a continuous rolled collar, capelet sleeves and ends at calf-height. The whole coat is lined with ruby-colored crepe taffeta. It closes in front with hidden hooks and eyes. The edges of the coat are tucked up and fixed with a safety pin.
The coat and the pants are decorated with a golden trim with a wavelike design. The trim at the side of the coat runs along the side seam and round the armhole. Therefore, the width of the trim at the side seam is double. The trim on the inside of the coat runs parallel 23 cm (approx. 9 inches) apart the hem of the coat. There is also a row of the golden trim running at the outer side seams of the pants.
The belt is made of a ready-made black leather belt. The belt buckle is hand-made of polymer clay. The belt is hidden in front by the coat, but it passes through the side seams and runs above over the coat in the back.
The shirt is made of cloque. It has a round neck and long sleeves.
Boots and weapon
I wear black knee-high leather boots and a painted model kit of the Naboo pistol with the costume.
