“Prince Hoseok is loved by his people, the Kingdom of Jung. However he was apart of the reason that caused a rift between his kingdom and the kingdom of Jeon. His kingdom was once in great peril, but he and his father brought their kingdom back to happiness. Hoseok is their hope, and they greatly look forward to the day when he becomes king.”
What are your: Personal top 4–6 Padmé costumes; Favorite 4–6 non-Padmé costumes; Favorite SW film plot-wise; Favorite SW film music-wise, if you have one; Favorite 1–3 SW spaceships, if you have any; Favorite behind the scenes goofs, gifs, or anecdotes?
I’ve been wondering when I would get asked what my favorite
Top 5 favorite Padme costumes, in no particular order:
-The Yellow Picnic Dress (AotC)
This dress changed my opinion on an entire
color. I used to hate yellow. Like really
hate yellow. But then I saw and studied this dress and it is so beyond
beautiful to me. It’s so flowy and feminine and colorful. Also her hair! My
favorite hairstyles for Padme are always the curled ones, and plus, she has the
side buns which are a little shout out to Leia’s buns. Not to mention I love
that entire scene in and of itself because they are in a natural setting of a
field of grass and flowers, so different from cold and colorless space, and
it’s one of the few time Anakin and Padme are truly and genuinely happy. It’s
before the war, it’s before Shim dies, it’s just a happy little moment between them,
and the yellow summer dress really evokes that.
-The Blue Tatooine Dress (AotC)
(Or as I like to call it: The Desert
Goddess Dress) It’s just really pretty? I like the color and the silver
details. I love her hair since it’s also curled and has slight buns on the
sides. I love the cape but I’m not a big fan of the cloak that goes over the
whole outfit. But I really find it funny that she chose a dress that shows her
mid-drift while visiting Anakin’s family (she did the same thing visiting her
own family how iconic.)
-The Blue Gloved Nightgown (RotS)
Honestly I love all of Padme’s nightgowns
but if I had to choose between them this is my favorite. I like the color, I
like her hair, I love the fact that she sleeps in a tiara. Despite the long
gloves, it’s a bit more practical than the pearl embellished blue nightgown
from previously in the film. It has seashells on it, though you can’t tell
unless seeing High Quality stills of the dress. Also it’s worn during a very
emotional scene and is one of the last costumes that she wears, so it has an
-The Parade Dress (TPM)
Honestly the only one of her outfits as a
Queen that I like. Her other Queen outfits are too dark and over-the-top for my
taste. I mean I get why they’re dark
and over-the-top, but they just don’t appeal to me personally. But I really
like the one she wears at the end of the film. I love the white dress and
pastel pink and yellow of the cloak. I like how it’s somewhat of a slight
callback to Leia’s dress during the ceremony at the end of ANH. (In case you
can’t tell, I Absolutely love parallels between Leia and Padme’s wardrobes.)
-The Funeral Dress (RotS)
I love this dress so much. I love the
colors, I love her hair, I love the flowers, it’s all just so pretty and regal
but also very sad. So many sequins! Trisha Biggar (the designer of most of the
costumes) said it was supposed to resemble the lakes and waterfalls of Naboo,
and Natalie Portman said it reminded her of Ophelia from Hamlet, and I think they’re both absolutely right. And she’s just
so beautiful like absolutely the angel that Anakin thought she was. Even in
death, Padme is more beautiful than any of us will ever be. No lie, I want to
be buried in something like that.
-Honorable Mention – White Geonosis Outfit (AotC)
One of her more practical costumes (except
for the fact that it’s white (I mean really you shouldn’t wear white into
battle) (of course the costume department said they made it white so that it
would stand out in the red/orange sand) (still, white will get so dirty during a battle) whatever, I
digress.) This costume has by far the most amount of screen time than any of her
others. I really like the cloak and silver armbands too. It’s also a bit
similar to Leia’s Hoth outfit. I actually thought about cosplaying this one but
I have no idea how to do that freaking hair.
Top 5 non-Padme costumes, in no
-Princess Leia’s Hoth/Bespin outfit (ESB)
Like it’s literally just a white jumpsuit
but Carrie Fisher made that thing look so regal and badass. I don’t have much
to say about it, I just like it a lot?
-Princess Leia’s Ceremony Dress (ANH)
Yeah it’s a plain white dress but it’s
prettier and more feminine than the other plain white dress. I love the cape
effect of the sleeves even though it’s not actually a cape. I also really like
the necklace and hair. I’ve considered cosplaying this one too.
-Luke’s Dagobah Costume (ESB)
I like that it shows his biceps. It’s also
dirty and kind of grungy, which you wouldn’t think of as a good Look for Luke
but damn does he make it work.
-Lando’s Blue Outfit (ESB)
The lining of his cape is literally
embroidered with dragons. Iconic.
-Luke’s Ceremony Outfit (ANH)
I love that it’s so obvious that Luke is wearing Han’s clothes here. Because we all know Luke didn’t pack much when he left Tatooine, so he didn’t have a lot in the way of fashionable clothes. But Han helped him out and donated an outfit. Except for the canary yellow jacket. That was not Han’s and no one has any idea where Luke got it from.
The first time Leia wears color! (even if
it is an unfortunate shade of red.) I like the shape and texture of the
cape/cloak and that is has a vague floral pattern on it. I really like her hair
too. Too bad it doesn’t have much screen time.
Favorite SW film plot wise?
-Lol I don’t watch Star Wars for the plot. But
seriously, I think they all have unique and interesting plots (except for TFA)
Favorite SW film music wise?
-They all have fantastic music but I have to say
Rogue One had very unique music compared to the others. I guess because it wasn’t
John Williams, which I love John Williams! But I really enjoyed the soundtrack
-Nubian Ships (Prequels)
(Pictured: J-type 327 Nubian Royal starship) They’re just so shiny and remind me of
mirrors. Fun fact: Captain Phasma’s armor is made from the melted down hull of
one of Palpatine’s Naboo ships.
-Kylo Ren’s shuttle (TFA)
It’s pretty simple but very intimidating. I
love the long V-shape wings, they kind of remind me of a bird of prey.
Favorite behind the scenes stuff?
-So many of the actors make their own sound
effects with the lightsabers and blasters.
-Carrie making Mark wear her Leia costumes. (I
wonder if she ever got him to wear the gold bikini…)
-All the many times that you can see Hayden
Christensen fall down in bts videos. It really supports my head canon that
Anakin has bad balance because of the prosthetic arm.
Wow this was a loaded ask. I hope I answered everything to
Pairing/Character: VHope Author: taethereal Rating: NC-17 Summary:
Hoseok lives his life under the veil of a dark curse until on day he meets a stranger that changes everything with just the touch of a hand.
- are you kidding me??! an actual fairytale au and it’s stunning?!?!?!?! i still can’t get over how adorable and well constructed this fic is. if you can, i strongly advise that you read it in one sitting, even though it’s hella long. prince hoseok?? lol bye this is too much.
TIME FOR A PSA BECAUSE THIS IS MINOR AS HECK BUT I SEE IT ALL THE TIME AND IT DRIVES ME CRAZY
the adjective for “from or relating to naboo” is nabooian, NOT nubian (source: wookieepedia so you know it’s accurate)
padme uses a “j-type 327 nubian royal starship” but that does NOT mean it’s from naboo, it’s just the name of the type of ship it is. in fact, wookieepedia also tells me that there is an entirely separate planet called nubia that builds nubian starships.
So I’ve been sick this passed week and yesterday I finally got back into the swing of things so I started this warm up. This was going SOMEWHERE but now I’m not sure so I’m just gonna leave it as a sketch right now. Featuring the Anastasia/Royal/Whatever AU for your viewing pleasure. Tried to do a Smaug in the background there but I kept picturing him like Cruella Deville for some reason. Oh well. :)
