A Cosplay of Padme’s Parade Gown Fit For a Queen

When it comes to movie franchises that are a household name, few hold a candle to that of Star Wars. Since the release of the original film in 1977, the franchise has spanned several sequels and prequels, animated series, books and comic books. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace is the first prequel to the Star Wars film saga released in 1999. This is where we get our first glimpse of Luke and Leia’s mother: Queen Amidala.


Arguably one of the most beautiful women in the Star Wars saga, Russian cosplayer Annie Forsait does great justice in bringing together a gorgeous outfit worn by the Queen in the final scenes of the parade in Phantom Menace and maintaining the beauty and solemn expression often worn by the Queen. While the gown itself may seem traditional and classy being a plain, silk dress, this outfit is no different than the rest of Queen Amidala’s elaborate costumes.


Her silk gown is accented with a hand-painted tabard and the amount of craftsmanship and time that went into making the chiffon and organza petals of the cloak is clearly not to be underestimated. The collar resembles a Japanese style parasol and her hair in a sleek up-do that is both elegant and challenging was inspired by the Hopi Indian hairstyles. Such a beautifully well done cosplay could pass as the Queen Amidala herself.
