Queen Amidala Reimagined in Manga

As little girls, my sister and I LOVED gawking at Padme’s stunning wardrobes and hairstyles. As Queen Amidala, she oozed authority with her powerful gowns, eclectic hairstyles, and bold makeup. As Senator Amidala, her style ranged from politically appropriate to dazzlingly flirtatious to no-nonsense fighter all in one movie (Attack of the Clones). It’s safe to say, as children, and even as adults, we have been fascinated by Padme’s incredible getups throughout her involvement in the franchise.

For the final presentation of my sister’s undeniably fantastic fan art, she is sharing her love of Queen Amidala in a new format; manga. Here it is.

Stunning is one of many descriptions I will provide to praise this beautiful work of art. Every time I see it I am absolutely blown away by how ridiculously incredible the attention to detail is in this, and I will say it again, STUNNING piece.

From the gleam in the hair to the shockingly tangible softness of the fabric discerned in the gown and all the way down to the glitter in the headdress, this picture is simply…

I’m at a loss of words.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magnificent day. May the Force be with you, always.

Here’s a Fascinating Twist on ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Vanity Fair Covers

The end of May was a pretty exciting time for Star Wars fans as Vanity Fair released a tantalizing issue focusing on the highly-anticipated Skywalker saga finale. We got our first look at new characters featured in this upcoming Star Wars movie, new aliens and planets, and an idea of what to expect from the film.

My sister and I were clearly ecstatic about the issue but, as always, my sister takes her excitement and converts that joy into some truly fascinating art and that’s what she did these covers. Here they are.
