A long time ago in a state far far away, I had to miss the midnight showing of Star Wars Episode 1 because I had 2 AP tests that day.  Lols I just told you all about how old I am. Anyways, the movie was not what we expected, and had an annoying character named Jar Jar binks in it.  Other than that, there were some exciting scenes and really great costumes.  After careful consideration my best friend and I choose one of Queen Amidala's dresses to re-produce, the first seen in the movie, the red throne room dress.  What a task it would be.  We carefully dissected every part, selected fabrics that matched the best we could, hand embroidered, painted, and molded every single last part of the costume.  After 13 years of struggling, moving apart, long drives, we have finally finished that outfit and will be showing it at NYCC/animefest.   It's sorta like finishing my first cosplay.



Accompaning our queen, will be a sexy version of the original princess Leia.  I made the original dress, but it's sooo... not attractive.  Lols.  We saw this great fan art work and decided to go for it, black corset, thigh high boots, yeah... had to do that!  



So for all 10 of you going to NYCC please stop by and say "Hi" if you spot us!

np, np. I was expecting it to be a much smaller event. that was soo crazy! Even at otakon you can run into jsut about every person once. But that was just crazy. My friend and I never made it very far in our cosplay(Queen Amidala) either so it was hard to just be passing people.

I'm not really a vendor person, so this wasn't a good fitting con for me. But I'm glad its up your alley since it's in your back yard.

Well more just passer bys getting photos. We did go Friday morning to Central Park and got some senic shots with obscuravista. I'm hoping they look as good large as they did on the "small" screen on his camera.

congratulations on its completion, I look forward to seeing posts of the Amidala dress. I did see it opening night, and didn't do so hot on my AP test the next day.

You know I was debating on if I am even wearing a costume. I may not. Things are not going well for me right now. BLEGH.

It's a really flawed film but I still enjoyed it. It had essentially most traits befitting Star Wars (e.g. Light sabre duels, weird aliens, space battles, etcetera). I agree, mostly, with your reply to the first comment on this journal. Darth Maul was an awesome character. Jar Jar Binks is a failed attempt at creating an "endearingly clumsy" character; he's impossibly clumsy, but not endearing,

I enjoyed Episode II too despite no one else seeming to lol. The action was great, however the secondary plot of the love story felt really forced, unnatural, and dull.

Yes, that's because it was. I heard George got an other writer on board for those scence, but I think it was a novel writer. He really should have found a chick flick writer.

He could have, but using a chick flick writer could have alienated the fan base... even more.

That is so amazing and exciting that after 13yrs, you are still best friends and have finally completed the costume together!

I have never been to NYCC, so since I am finally making it there this year, while you guys are finally completing a first, this is actually the start of a first for me =D

This is my first NYCC too, thos far from my first con. That was a pitiful little event in SF called JTAF 5. It was the con's last year. All it had was about 3 rooms. I thought cons were the silliest little geek gatherings of all time. Boy was I ever wrong!

We should stand out. Never know if there will be an other Q Amidala, but one of us is going to be wearing it each day. Unfortunalty, her husband has refused to be a jedi knight protector for us.

Despite poor reviews of SW1, I enjoyed it much.
Look forward to seeing your SW cosplay.

It got 3 stars in reviews, not sure if that was our local paper or what. It wasn't a bad movie, it just wasn't as forward as the orginals were for their time. It would have been a good movie if it had been made 20 years earier, but story telling had advanced along with directing, ect ect ect. I guess it was dated to some extent, and George did seam to have a big plan. The baby humor also could have been left out. His primary audience was not 5 year olds.
