Star Wars Styling (part 1)

Posted in Fantasy,Hair,High Fashion by Piper Hanriot on December 4, 2015

With the new Star Wars movie, episode seven, The Force Awakens releasing in cinemas across the globe in two weeks time, I decided to challenge myself and see what I could find by way of Star Wars women’s apparel in Second Life.  It has been ten years since the release of Star Wars, episode three, Revenge of the Sith and not so surprisingly there currently is not a great deal of women’s Star Wars outfits available both inworld or on the SL marketplace.

Queen Amidala styling for the Invasion of Naboo

The red gown that Queen Amidala wore in her throne room before the invasion of Naboo was a difficult one, not only when it came to finding the appropriate gown, but also the headdress.  In November 2015, The Instruments event in SL dedicated their theme to Star Wars, which is where I found this amazing headdress.  The gown is from Arwen’s Creations and I found Queen Amidala’s make-up on the SL marketplace.

My next challenge, styling Queen Amidala’s gown, worn to celebrate victory over the trade invasion was a little easier, however the main struggle was finding the perfect high collar.  The gown, ruffle collar and fur stola are from Sascha’s Designs.  The collar is actually from a different dress, however it was the best one I could find to complete this look.  The gold headdress I found on the SL marketplace and is by Zibska.

Queen Amidala travel gown styling

For my final challenge for this blog I chose to style Queen Amidala’s travel gown and again this was quite a tricky one, especially when it came to trying to find a suitable headdress, which unfortunately I did not.  The gown and hood for this look both came from Arwen’s Creations and the big spiky collar from Sascha’s Designs.  As I could not find a big feather headdress for the hood, I decided on the collar instead to add to the effect of this look.

I must admit that finding suitable big hair and headdresses has proved to be the biggest challenge of all.  However with Star Wars fever ramping up, hopefully more designers in Second Life will start to create more Star Wars apparel.  It certainly would be wonderful to see more choice out there, as there are some simply stunning gowns and outfits from the past six Star Wars movies.

Until next time …
