Woohoo! I created a topic I didn't see a link to a thread in the Guide to the forum, so hopefully this isn't redundant, or if it is it should prompt a wee gentle prod/nod in the right direction I suppose if we treat this like any other costume thread in terms of people who have made the costume share their advice and those who are asking for help to ask for help. So, some links. Costume specific: [link=http://www.padawansguide.com/decoy_theed.shtml]Padawan's Guide[/link] [link=http://www.swffaq.com/sabe.html]Fit for a Queen[/link] Image galleries: [link=http://royalhandmaidensociety.org/galleries.html]Royal Handmaiden galleries[/link] [link=http://www.royalhandmaidensociety.org/galleries/episode1_by_scene/beg_for_help.htm]RHS screen cap gallery with shots of Sabe in costume[/link] [link=http://www.royalhandmaidensociety.org/galleries/episode1_by_scene/battle_for_naboo.html]RHS with screen caps of the battle for Naboo, featuring some with Sabe in costume[/link] Fan costumes: [link=http://www.e-v-e-n-t-h-o-r-i-z-o-n.com/me_amidala2.php]German fan costume[/link] [link=http://www.e-v-e-n-t-h-o-r-i-z-o-n.com/contest_fc11.php]German fan costume worn at a convention[/link] [link=http://www.padawansguide.com/decoy_theed_fan.shtml]Padawan's Guide page of fan costumes[/link] [link=http://www.padawansguide.com/decoy_theed_makingof.shtml]More fan costumes in Padawan's Guide[/link] Shrines: [link=http://schala.net/sabe/]Loyal Decoy, a Sabe Shrine[/link] [link=http://www.geocities.com/we_are_brave/Sabe.html]We Are Brave, page on Sabe[/link] Merchandise: You can use your nouse to work out how to search ebay I just realised one can't link to auctions here But some auctions might hhave a nice image of the action figures afterall. I do have some links to sites showing pictures of the action figures, not selling them. But I'm not sure how that works in the rules thing of not linking to sites etc. If any of the above links fits this, please do remove them and send me a pm saying which one was removed so I can remember it for next time I'll be looking at the Jedi robes as the design seems to take some elements from this. I also have the 12" doll and am getting the action figure sometime soon and will write up what they seem to suggest soon. Unless someone wants to do that already? One thing I did note is the skirts look split down the sides on the action figure. Has anyone noticed this in the movie themselves? Does Sabe move enough on the right angle to see if this is the case? The skirt does look to be a partial circle in shape, and I'll do some drapings on a doll to see just what gives the best results Any other thoughts please share Fabrics, layers etc... I'm just starting to look at this costume and would love to know what others have seen so far To help with searches for posts: this is for Sabe or SabÃ© in the royal battle dress or outfit while Amidala or Padme (PadmÃ©) wears the battle dress/outfit the other handmaidens wear.
