Time to add a few more.

I've been avoiding some of the Padme costumes as she isn't really my favorite character but I can't dispute that they are without doubt some of the most artistic costumes in all of the films, so we'll start there.

Her regal gown is the first costume we see Padme in. The bubble lights at the bottom of the gown were powered by a large battery on wheels that was concealed under the clothing.



Her Coruscant apartment robe from TPM.



At this point I realized rather suddenly that Natalie Portman totally wears a new outfit in every scene. It must have driven the costuming department nuts on a few occasions. This is the dress worn when she first meets a grownup Anakin in AOTC.



And who could forget this one? The perfect dress for addressing the Galactic Senate and sending Chancellor Finis Valorum's reign of power down the garbage chute. This is probably my favorite dress of hers. It is just dripping with details and beautiful costume work.



The "Escape from Naboo" dress, not actually worn by Natalie Portman as far as I know as she was already disguised as a handmaiden at this point.



Lucas thought this was the most important of her dresses as it was worn during the moment when supposed "chemistry" occurred between Padme and Anakin while hiding away on Naboo during AOTC.



Padme's Genosian arena outfit, probably the sexiest of the bunch. It is designed for movement, very important when you are climbing pillars and using a chain to battle a wild Nexus.



We will end Padme with her secret wedding gown from AOTC. The dress is primarily an antique Italian lace bedspread complimented with 300 yards of handmade French-knit braid.



Anakin's Jedi outfit from AOTC with the classic leather tabards and overall darker colors than classic Jedi... Note his relatively simple mechanical hand, it's just a bunch of plastic finger joints and colored wires. Very interesting.

Annnndddd some more.

The Imperial display was rather great, with the center costume being my favorite. Crisp lines and overall design that was specifically made to reference dictatorships of old, it never ceases to give the impression of rigid control.



Palpatine's robes from ROTS. They are very detailed and lend a reptilian impression which Ian Mcdiarmid picked right up on.



Impossible to get a shot of this costume without Stormtroopers in the shot but this is perhaps the last time that Sidious would wear colors other than all black. It's very Sith-y, if only the now Galactic Empire had known.



Had to throw one of me in there. I can feel the unlimited power, ok different scene but you get the idea. Sidious' robes from ROTJ. Sleeves don't get much wider than this.



Gotta love that time that Leia tried her hand at being a Bounty Hunter. The thermal detonator in her hand looked rather puny so that might have not been an original, I thought they were just a tad bigger.



Then Leia trades her Bounty Hunter duds for something a lot more revealing. Carrie Fisher said that since it was made of metal it was super uncomfortable to wear.



Sly Moore, the Umbaran administrative aide of Sheev Palpatine wore this one. Umbaran fashion is rather interesting.



Mon Mothma's dress. Very elegant and flowing piece of costume work and looks like it and the woman who wears it belongs in the Galactic Senate, and helping to lead rebellions.



One of my favorite characters, Mas Amedda. He has a decent role in the prequels but a surprisingly good presence in the canon novels.
