Day 193 (bonus): Grey DeLisle inducted into the Rebel Legion as Honorary Member

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 137: Star Wars Masterwork Artist Proof sketch card by Kimberly Dunaway (7/9)

Item: Artist Proof Sketch Card (Snowbunny)
Artist: Kimberly Dunaway
Set: Star Wars Masterwork
Manufacturer: Topps
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.

Day 109: Star Wars Galaxy 4 #19

SWG4 19-384SWG4 19-384 back

Title: Adventure on Ilum
Artist: Adam Hughes
Set: Star Wars Galaxy 4
Manufacturer: Topps
Sub-section: New Visions
Card: 19-384
Price: $78 for a box

After a 14-year hiatus, Topps produced a 4th series of Star Wars Galaxy cards in 2009. Adam Hughes was inspired by the Ilum episodes of Star Wars: Clone Wars to produce this realistic image of Jedi Master Yoda and Senator Padmé Amidala who is drawn to resemble Natalie Portman. In turn, this image inspired the statue produced by Gentle Giant and featured on Day 11. The double numbering is a continuation from the earlier Galaxy sets which numbered the card’s position in its release and in the full series of Star Wars Galaxy cards.

I purchased a full retail box of Star Wars Galaxy 4 cards at Target on March 8, 2009.
