It just so happened that when I went to get Grey DeLisle’s autograph at Star Wars Celebration IV, my friends Mary Alice Ladd and Kristin Sirota were about to induct Grey into the Rebel Legion as an Honorary Member. Both are wearing costumes based on outfits in which Padmé appeared in Star Wars: Clone Wars. The Rebel Legion is an international Star Wars costuming group where members costume as the good guys of the Star Wars Universe.

Day 188: Star Wars Celebration III badges pin set #188/275
Item: Star Wars Celebration III badges pin set
Event: Star Wars Celebration III
I couldn’t find a good picture of the pin set, so I’ve included a photo of the actual badges. As you can see, both the adult and child badges for Saturday feature Senator Amidala. The adult badge has art based on Revenge of the Sith, while the child’s badge has art based on Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series.
I pre-ordered the set from Intergalactic Trading Company at Star Wars Celebration III in Indianapolis, Indiana, and received it later that month.

Star Wars Celebration II was held in May 2002 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Matt Busch created the key art used on the official program.

Day 100: Padmé by Russell Walks
Artist: Russell Walks
Event: Star Wars Celebration III
Size: 19″ x 13.5″
Russell Walks created this beautiful print of Senator Padmé Amidala with a background of her former residence, the Theed Palace of Naboo, for the Art Show at Star Wars Celebration III. While the Art Show is now a staple of Star Wars Celebration with artists competing for one of a limited number of spots to sell an exclusive art print, this was the first art show and you had to make an effort to even find it.
On the last day of Star Wars Celebration III in Indianapolis, I came across the Celebration Art Show. I purchased the print directly from Russell Walks, although like the current art show, I may have had to pay through an intermediary.
Day 85: Queen Amidala sketch card by Spencer Brinkerhoff III
Item: Queen Amidala sketch card
Artist: Spencer Brinkenhoff III
I guess I commissioned Spencer Brinkerhoff III to draw Queen Amidala in the outfit she wore to address the senate in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace. It would seem Spencer is intending to do a series of 250 sketch cards in 2015.
This was my last purchase at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. After requesting a sketch in this outfit late on Saturday evening, I remembered just after 4:30 pm on Sunday and returned to Spencer’s booth to buy the sketch card that came with a free original trilogy print.
Day 84: Clone Wars Padmé by Grant Gould
(The streak is a scanner artifact. It does not appear on the art.)
Item: Clone Wars Padmé
Artist: Grant Gould
Size: 8/5″ x 11″
Material: Markers and blue pencils
Grant Gould seems to be the go to guy if you want art from Star Wars: The Clone Wars. While he focuses on Ahsoka Tano, he does do great work on Senator Amidala. Here he has depicted her in her pilot outfit as seen in the Malevolence arc.
I purchased this sketch directly from Grant Gould in the Art Show at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim on April 16, 2015.
Day 82: Limited Edition “Lucky Sevens” playing card
Item: Limited Edition “Lucky Sevens” playing card
Backside Artist: Tsuneo Sanda
Event: Star Wars Celebration Anaheim
Cartamundi gave away “Lucky Sevens” playing cards during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Each card was a 7 in a different suit. These exclusive to Celebration Anaheim playing cards feature photographs of the most iconic “4 of a kind” characters in the Star Wars galaxy! Each giveaway card features a different card back design from an existing deck of Cartamundi-made Star Wars playing cards. Limit 1 per person per day. Each card is available for one day
One card featured Obi-Wan Kenobi as the seven of diamonds. The backside features art by Tsuneo Sanda that was on the prequels deck from the Star Wars Saga 2-pack.
I received this card for free from Cartamundi at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in April 2015.
Day 81: Star Wars Conference Sitges Admission badge
Item: Women’s Admission badge
Event: Star Wars Conference Sitges 2004
Organzier: The Official Spanish Fan Club
Size: 3.5″ x 5.5″
Badges for the Spanish Star Wars Fan Club’s Conference in 2004 featured art from Star Wars: Clone Wars. The female admission badge featured art of Senator Amidala in her Ilum “Snow bunny” outfit. I learned about this badge when I visited Barcelona in June 2007 and found back issues of the official Spanish Fan Club magazine..
I purchased the full set of badges from Blanki Canton Corral in September 2007.
