Undeniable Fact About AOTC #4: It Introduced More Amazing Costumes


Okay, so “amazing” is an opinion but few can argue that Tricia Biggar’s costumes for the prequel trilogy weren’t incredible. Why oh why was she overlooked so many times? (And for what, LOTR’s Ren Faire wear?)

If Queen Amidala’s eye-popping gowns weren’t beautiful enough in TPM, Senator Amidala was back with another wardrobe to die for. The other costumes in the movie were great too. I love Anakin’s Jedi outfit, Jango’s armor, Zam Wesell’s outfit, even the Kaminoans’ digital gowns. They inspired cosplayers everywhere and fan artists loved drawing them.

    I’m a man and I’m not interested in wearing dresses, but Padmé’s costumes are absolutely stunning. It’s amazing to read in BTS stuff how they used materials from all over the world, in part being almost ancient.

    It’s one of the world’s biggest mysteries why Trisha Biggar didn’t even get a single Oscar nomination for her tremendous work. Unbelievable. At least the Saturn Awards again honered her work, it seems like those were the only award people who treated the Prequels fairly.

    I would be more confident with Ep 7. if they hired her as costume designer. God forbid they actually bring back people who worked on the Prequels!

      I thought they brought back Doug Chiang and Iain McCaig, or did they quietly get rid of them? I wouldn’t be surprised.

      It does feel like an insult that they didn’t bring Trisha Biggar or Nick Gillard back, though…. In fact, it’s frustrating to me that most of the people coming back either worked on the OT only or on the PT and the OT; there are barely any PT-only veterans representing, as far as I know. :/

    • Tarrlok Says:

      They’ve hired Michael Kaplan, he who gave the Klingons some moronic trenchcoats. From the honourable Worf to a gang of 3edgy5me dudes. Most of his Star Trek costumes were horrible, IMO.

      Doug Chiang and Iain McCaig are back, though. That gives me hope. However, there’s a risk that the producers will ask them to merely garnish the same old OT designs with a veneer of newness, preventing them from stretching their creativity like they did with the PT.
