So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.

The Instruments monthly showcase is featuring designs inspired by Star Wars this month. Among the designs, you will find this fabulous gown inspired by Padme’s outfit in Episode Three. Padme’s lament, “So this is how liberty dies… with thunderous applause.” seems particularly apt at this time when crowds of people applaud the creation of databases to track people because of their ethnicity and armed vigilance committees march outside mosques and call themselves patriots. I guess those people have not studied history (or watched Star Wars), a tabula rasa of ignorance on which the future of tyranny is being written. Of course, the Force is with us all to resist tyranny by resisting fear. We know what happens when fear inspires hate.  It has happened before and if we fail to learn from that, we have only ourselves to blame.

I stopped at Winter Moon for the photos, since the dress is black and white, I thought black and white pictures would be great. By the way, I think the scarf that is part of the Padme dress may work well with other outfits. The Padme outfit includes the dress, scarf and sleeves that I am wearing as well as a crown, earrings and rings that I am not.

I added some bracelets from Lazuri and armbands from Baiastice.

The mask is called Trompeur and was a group gift from Lelutka in October. I have been hoping to wear it and I liked how it worked with this outfit which I did not want to wear exactly as it came out of the box.

Under the mask I am wearing Glam Affair’s Fantasy Line – the Karin applicator even though I am wearing the Stella mesh head because it’s okay to use the applicators any way we please.
