    I know, there aren't pics of her costumes like in the Ep.1 visual dictionary. I really hope there will be when we see the whole book, otherwise, I'm going to be very sad.

    Those are the same scans I got. The original source's scans are now down, so I'd be willing to bet these will be soon as well. I have them saved on my computer, so if anyone is interested in a specific pic, just send me a PM.

    *Jumps up and down with J_S* The couple of pics that we did see of Padme are pretty good though. I like the pic of her in the black corset piece :D [face_love] Now I just have to workout so I can look decent in it ;)

    I agree with Obi-Dawn -- I'm gonna be deeply chagrined if there aren't more pics of Padme's wardrobe in the actual book...

    Obi-Dawn & Sg - I agree.. I'll be quite upset and very board this summer without those pictures! Cause then we have to wait until Ocotber/November for the DVD....

    I hope there are more pictures then those...

    KS - I saved them to my computer also... im setting up an additon website just for those pictures.. 1) I dont want the email of death from LFL and 2) They are HUGE HUGE files sizes! 10 pictures are about 4 MB!

    AL - Im still jumping up and down! haha!

    I'm still jumping up and down too J_S. I can't wait. Can you let me know when you get those pics up on your website? I'm trying to study for an exam and I don't want to get too distracted ;)

    Unfortunately, I am studying(if I know what that is ;) ), but I can tell you where I'll be when I'm done with the test. I'm going to take a good look at those pics. Thanks again :)

    Well, there are over 60 pages in both of the other visual dictionaries, so I'm assuming this one should be the same. And we obviously haven't seen 60 scans from it ;o) so I'm guessing there are going to be plenty of other pictures of Padme's costumes in it. (praying for picnic dress pics!)


    PS- I can't stand Stacy Kiebler.

    My apologies if this has been posted elsewhere, but does anyone know when the actual Visual Dictionary (in convenient book form) is being released? It's very frustrating trying to work from the few photos that have made their way to the 'net!

    Also...does anyone know if there are any plans for a CD-ROM "Insider's Guide" like they did for Episode I? That was another excellent costume resource, with pictures of front back and side views for many of the costumes!

    All good things,
    Kelly

    Augh!!! How dare they taunt us with this... Only usuable picture of Padme and it is the costume most widely pictured already, and probably the most simple... On a side note, where the heck did ya get them, anyway? Just curious

    Augh!

    Does anyone happen to know when the dictionary is actually coming out?? I haven't seen anything about it. Can someone possibly send the two costume pages for Zam to me, though??? Pretty please??? (at bamfdoll@yahoo.com

    Blarharhar, Mrs. M!

    I agree with you, that there will almost definitely be plenty of Padme pics -- I mean, how could there not be? Her wardrobe is a really large visual element of the film, since she's such a central character. I can't imagine that Lucasfilm wouldn't want to showcase all the hard work of the costume department.

    How cool is Shaak Ti???? I would love to make that costume, but ti will be very difficult!

    The Visual Dictionary comes out April 24th I believe.

    I think it's actually out on the 23rd, Mrs. M -- one less day to wait!

    Shaak Ti IS totally cool...
    I'm also really liking the design on Jocasta Nu's tabards.

    I have a sneaking suspicion I'm gonna be useless for a couple of days after this book comes out. My boss might as well write me off for that week. :)

    Really? It's out on the 23rd? Hmm...that's strange, because Amazon doesn't even have a listing for it!

    Most puzzling...

    I am totally digging Zam's costume too! Purple is my fav color(half of my wardrobe is purple), and how cool are the stitches down the side of her costume? I may have to add her to my list too.

    S-G Jacosta Nu does have very interesting Tabbords!

    Hey, as far as Padme's pics, there is actually one useful thing about them: I don't think we've ever seen more detailed shots of her boots! Is it me or do they look kind of foam-ish? Not that she would wear foam boots, but I don't think they're leather!

    What a great section on the Jedi!! WOOHOO!!! And, yes, that was all I looked at! I must be strong and remain spoiler-free! But I had to gander at the Jedi stuff. Those little kids are TOO CUTE!! [face_laugh] And... I don't think I'll be attempting Shaak Ti for myself anytime soon. **laugh** For as gorgeous as her robes are, that headpiece... whoa! Still, how nice to know that we can now do whatever the heck we want for Jedi Robes! YAY!!!

    Has anyone else noticed the vast number of references to and descriptions of Jedi fighting forms in the scans we've seen so far?
    It makes me wonder if there's not some sort of training manual planned for some point in the future.

    but back to costumes...

    This is making me want to design some all new Jedi Robes for myself. No! No! I don't have time for that in the schedule!
    Must... resist....

    I thought that the book was coming out on April 23rd with the rest of the merchandise. I could be wrong though.

    P.S. Awsome pics of the Jedi and Jango.

    S_G careful, or you are going to sew all your costumes and have too many to wear! [face_clown]

    Mrs. M, I ALREADY have that problem!

    I mentioned to my husband that I was kinda wanting some new Jedi robes, and he pointed out that I rarely wear my current ones.

    Voice of reason, you know. He reins me in when I get too many projects in my planner at once. :)

    If there aren't more Padme pics than that, they should at least publish a prequel version of the SW Chronicles after Ep3 is finished. That way tons of prequel costuming pics could be available. (Yeah, I know, another 3 year wait) There was one picture in the link above that I couldn't figure out how it related to Star Wars.

    LMAO at Count Dooku's menacing stare. A homage to his former role as Count Dracula perhaps?
