Padme Costume Tournament - R1  
First time we did this, Arwen's Chase Outfit kicked ass. Then, it was time for Eowyn's White Gown to triumph as Boss Frock. Now it's Padme's turn .... and there are 36 costumes to get through....omfg.

Please note that 2 of her costumes will be excluded. Her Coruscant Nightgown from EpII and Hosital Gown from EpIII are little more than white shifts. Costumes from the Clone Wars series and any comics etc will also not be included. However, the two costumes Sabe wears as decoy in Ep I will be included, because technically they are from Padme's wardrobe.

Hedge your bets! I think the safe money's on the Picnic Gown from EpII to win, but who knows?

Please remember you are NOT voting for your favourite here! It's a process of elimination, you're voting OUT your LEAST favourite. Each round will last approximately 48 hours.

Poll #1169433 PCT R1

"the red dress is iconic but..dumb"

ROTF!! This is true. I voted to keep it in for the iconic status. :D

I think that both dresses are symbolic and beautiful, actually. And both would be difficult to move in, but yes, the white one looks much easier. :) Difficult choice for me!

lol That's going to be fun ;D
I never really liked the red dress, mainly because of the bottom. o.O
Lauren: Pattie2eowyn on April 11th, 2008 01:32 pm (UTC)

I think it's fantastic, lol. It's so out there and the epitome of Amidala. I fucking love those lights. It's like a Christmas tree. lol.

Whee and its begun! :D

I voted the red one out. As much as I associate it with SW prequels, its too in ya face. The white is more subtle and I love that moment when she and little Annie exchanged a smile.

Out with the red!

And you're right...the picnic gown is a biggie. Its gorgeous. :D
Lauren: Kateeowyn on April 11th, 2008 01:31 pm (UTC)
Aww, I love the red one. It's the epitome of Queen Amidala, I think I do like the parade gown too, but not as much. :)

Yeah, I reckon that frock's got it in the bag.
not telling!: Padme brillianceyorda_ on April 11th, 2008 01:37 pm (UTC)
Yay! Finally! I've been waiting for this :) Thank you so much for doing this, hon. This was an easy decision because the Parade gown is one of my favorite Padme dresses.
Lauren: Padme Whiteeowyn on April 11th, 2008 01:43 pm (UTC)
I didn't realise it was in such demand. :)

I voted parade out. ;)
Horst Günther Burkhardt IIIpeanuthorst on April 11th, 2008 02:43 pm (UTC)
I voted parade out. It's too... fluffy.

The red dress looks more regal, more suitable for a Queen.
Lauren: Obi-Waneowyn on April 11th, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
I prefer the red dress, too.
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on April 11th, 2008 03:49 pm (UTC)
I think the lake dress will win. ;p
Lauren: Marthaeowyn on April 11th, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah? Could do!
atlas_one on April 11th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
Padme did have some wacky, wacky outfits.
Lauren: Jasmine Starseowyn on April 11th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
Oooh yeah.

Voting out the red dress, because it reminds me a lot more of 'The last Emperor" than SW!:pI like the other one more, more Padme!!;)
Lauren: George 007eowyn on April 11th, 2008 11:10 pm (UTC)
I voted the other way. :D
Atanone: 7atanone on April 11th, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)

Atanone: 33atanone on April 11th, 2008 11:58 pm (UTC)
and I thought I loved all the dresses..hmmm..funny..can't wait for the next then :)
Lauren: Margueriteeowyn on April 13th, 2008 01:21 am (UTC)
Some of them are awful. There's a few I don't like.
Leiaaranelya on April 12th, 2008 03:28 am (UTC)
I already know exactly what dress I want to triumph over all, and it is probably one of my favorite dresses of all time - real or fictional - and (as a dress) it is totally kickass sexy. I want it. If I ever become insanely rich and have nothing practical to spend my money on, I'm buying it.

What dress is it? The rainbow-y river gown from Ep II.
Lauren: Kitty Powereowyn on April 13th, 2008 01:20 am (UTC)
That is pretty, but I don't like the way it clasps down the bottom on the front. It's so floaty and pretty, tho.
Leiaaranelya on April 13th, 2008 02:42 am (UTC)
I have an insane obsession with it. I actually wanted to have it re-made with some more modern alterations for my senior prom dress years ago (like no clasp thing in the front, less of a hard-looking neck in the front, more of a fabric-y look, and in a white/blue instead of total rainbow.....I gave it a lot of thought, and I was really tan. it would have looked awesome. too bad I was not born independently wealthy).

ps i love this costume tournament.
Lauren: Natalie Glameowyn on April 13th, 2008 02:51 am (UTC)
Those improvements sounds absolutely awesome. You should make it one day .... hopefully when you're independently wealthy! :D

I'm glad, hon! :)
Mlle de Fer: SW your gown?mlledefer on April 12th, 2008 08:17 am (UTC)
Thank you for starting it!:)

voted out the parade one because of the white part - it seems strange to me... The red one is, I think, just better done:):)
Lauren: Marthaeowyn on April 13th, 2008 01:20 am (UTC)
No worries. :)

Yes, I like the red one better, too.

This really brings back memories. I used to draw every costume of hers in TPM to learn about each one's details.
Lauren: JDeowyn on April 13th, 2008 01:19 am (UTC)
Really? That's pretty cool. Did you keep your drawings?
Because maidens with swords rule!theswordmaiden on April 13th, 2008 02:11 am (UTC)
I'm 98% sure they're in my closet somewhere. :)
