Story Part 1

In May of 1999 something happened that no person thought would for a good 19 years. Many had gone to a crappy movie (Wing Commander) just to see a preview. With promises to enchant us beyond imagination after, we waited in lines. One to get tickets and another when it came time to get into the theater. The audience electrified, having no idea what was in store. Unfortunately for George Lucas, his story telling had not advanced with the rest of his peers. The arguably most anticipated movie did not live up to expectations and certainly did not beat them. Perhaps those expectations were just unrealistic.

Despite itís obvious flaws in overly childish characters and a lack of creativity when it came to using the force, it wasnít a bad movie, it was just not a great one. Nonetheless, as a true fan, we trekked in droves to see it again and again. The Star Wars universe was still a place of civilized ideals.

The costumes where designed carefully, wonderfully with a distinct oriental influence, and very regal. My best friend and I had to recreate one. For a time we planned on 2. I would wear either a hand maiden or second Amidala replica; however, I think we both simply loved that red dress the most. We studied the few pictures we could get at the time, since the internet was just getting on its feet then. Magazines and books were our best references.
