Iconic and the voice of a generation, Star Wars has entered pop culture like no other movie series. Star Wars costumes feature the characters from Star Wars so children and adults alike can embody their favorite Jedi, princess, or senator for Halloween.
Strong and intelligent, Padme Amidala grew up wanting to change the world. Born Padmé Naberrie, she became the Queen of Naboo at 14. Deemed Queen Amidala, her previous experience in volunteering and public service made her an excellent leader. She used her knowledge of politics and negotiation to attempt to maintain the peace in Naboo. If you have a daughter with a strong personality the girl’s Padme Amidala Halloween costume is a wise and fitting choice.
During the events of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, the Trade Federation make an attempt on Padme’s life, escaping with the help of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan learner Obi Wan Kenobi. When the rescue party is forced to land on desert planet Tatooine, Padme dresses as a handmaiden and meets nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker for the first time. A good idea for a couples costume is to pair the Padme Amidala costume with an Anakin Skywalker costume.
In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, we find Padme Amidala a decade later as a Galactic Senator for Naboo. As she lands on Coruscant, another attempt is made on her life. Padme finds protection in Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker. Padme goes into hiding with Anakin Skywalker as her protector. Back home on Naboo, Anakin’s feelings for Padme are made known and she attempts to ignore her own emotions.
After a failed attempt to rescue Obi-Wan from Count Dooku, Padme and Anakin admit their love for each other before entering into the Geonosian Arena and facing their possible deaths. Padme’s outfit from the arena embodies the strong, confident, and capable nature of Padme Amidala. With options for both women and girls, our Padme Amidala costumes allow all ages to strap on their blasters and take on the Separatists.
After they are saved from the Geonosian Arena, Padme and Anakin return to Naboo and are secretly wed.
In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Padme is pregnant with Anakin’s child. He learns of the pregnancy as he returns from another dangerous mission. Later, Obi-Wan informs Padme of Anakin’s turn to the darkside, and she travels to Mustafar to see Anakin’s state for herself. She arrives to find Anakin flushed with power and is appalled when he tells her he wants to overthrow Palpatine so they can rule together. She pleads for him to stop but is unsuccessful. Anakin’s rage is amplified when Obi-Wan emerges from the ship. Anakin believes Padme has betrayed him and he uses the dark side to choke her into unconsciousness in a fit of rage.
After Obi-Wan defeats Anakin, he returns to Padme, taking her to a nearby asteroid base, and getting her medical care. Padme gives birth to two babies, Luke and Leia. She uses her final words to tell Obi-Wan that she still believes in Anakin. Having lost the will to live, she dies.

Available for both women and girls, a Padme Amidala costumes are the perfect option for ladies looking to show their love for Star Wars.
