    cool, I look foreward to it!!! And as for the leather straps, if your staring AT the costume, the left one goes over the right. Here's the best promos for it:

    I made this for ROTS opening night. I used the action figure to determine strap location and it came in handy showing my non-SW buddies what the costume should look like! You'll love wearing this costume! It's so comfy compared to other Padme costumes.

    Warning:

    Some of you may be thinking about purchasing the resin buckle and brooch from the site linked off of padawan's guide.

    The good news? They're incredible.

    The bad news? The buckle WILL break.

    My dad is currently trying to find a solution to this problem so I can wear this at NY comic con, I'll keep everyone posted on the solution when/if we find one.

    They're not flimsy, but they're very fragile, just by the nature of the original design. But I would still recommend them. I may have them molded and metal casted so I can have something stronger.

    Any update on the breakage problem? I'm considering buying a set of these.

    How easy is it to dye microsuede? (I think that's what its called) its Ultra Suede at least. Its a light color of brown, like Padme's leggings on this outfit.

    Thoughts?

    thanks for the unlock!

    I just wanted to link to a picture of the symbol on the arm that my dad drew, taken from the picture from the "Dressing a Galaxy" book. It's not the straight unstylized symbol we thought, but a slightly altered one. Here's the link:

    Hope that helps someone, it's helped me!
