Price: $150

Every week has a “Snowbunny Wednesday”, so in order to feature the sketch cards of Kimberly Dunaway for a week on Daily Dose of Padmé, it would require a sketch of Padmé in her Ilum attire. However, not only had she not done one, I had not seen that outfit on any of the nearly 200 Masterwork Artist Sketch Cards featuring the former Queen of Naboo. Fortunately, Kim had some blank cards and created this breathtakingly beautiful sketch specially for me.

Obviously, I acquired this card directly from the artist.

When Padmé Amidala is under the protection of Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker on Naboo, she wears a beautiful, multi-colored dress. Even though we only see the collar and her hair, the look is so iconic that you can tell that this is what she is wearing in the sketch.

I won an eBay auction for this card on February 24, 2015.

Years before he created a print with all of Padme Amidala’s costumes for Star Wars Celebration IV, he did some prints of single outfits. In this print, Padme is portrayed in the wedding dress she wore for her secret wedding on Naboo to Jedi Anakin Skywalker.
