The Flower decoration

The Flower decoration -  - Padme
We tried to have a good look at the NY Fashion shows pics, & when we zoomed in on the photos we could see that there were 3 small posy flowers & some small mother of pearl circle shaped discs. These was replicated as close as possible though it was still difficult to see from the pics.

I just re-read my comment and realized how tired I was!!! lol, I meant how did you dye the dress and fabric. That leaves me feeling embarrassed that I mistyped haha.

And thank you!! I will definitely have to keep all of that bookmarked. It really is a great quality cosplay! And for someone like me who is a plus sized cosplayer, its a great dress to hide any embarrassing curves! <3

^_^ You look just absolutely amazing in the outfit! (sorry its been 4 months, been really busy @_@) This pic is bookmarked and everything for when I start making it (gotta wait on funds)

How did you do the wig and dying it? I'm good at figuring this kind of stuff out, but its always nice getting tips from people who have done it successfully!

Hi oh my word this was our first costume and people still say today it is the best copy.
That hairstyle was hard work and took weeks to style, there are like 20-30 small brown hair grips in places that you can't see. I have thought recentley to try it again, but people say that the wig is also the best attempt they've seen. The best example to go by was stormtrooper princess. I bought this reall long top quality godiva wig, you need the fringe to be the same length all the way round and very long about 40"+
This link below has our tutorial as i'm in the slow process of getting a website made for myself, so we sent this to the padawansguide.

The place I bought the wig was from ebay years ago, I beleive they have closed now though.

I love you for this...I've been trying so hard to get a good look at those things since this is my next cosplay. Its a difficult one to even plan!

That's great, I love it when I can help people. The trouble is with this costume is there arn't many close up's of the little things & really we just guessed after trying to freeze the dvd to get a still photo, but a lot of them were so fuzzy close up. I also have vidoe's of this dress on youtube, if you type traybuff in search box.

Thanks From

Hi yah, wep this is not as easy at it looks and you can only use a natural product like silk becuase synthetic polyesters don't dye. I am fortunate becuase I could afford to use the same fabrics that were used in the film, and it gets the best results but costs a lot. The sandwashed silk satin was very expensive but worth it, sandwashed means extra soft peach feel silk. I think they put it through an extra process or something, to get the sandwashed softness.
Hey you can see the actual dress on if you type my nickname Traybuff
