Star Wars: Fit for a Queen



Attack of the Clones & Revenge of the Sith: Unlike most Jedi, Aayla Secura does not wear the traditional robes of her order. Rather, the Twi'lek Jedi wears a scant leather-trimmed outfit that shows of her athletic build and shockingly blue skin. It is a functional ensemble, though, that allows the skilled warrior to move with ease.

Design: The idea for an "Oola Jedi" originally came from a comic book. After seeing Jan Foster's cover illustration for a Star Wars comic book, George Lucas was so struck by the image of a blue Twi'lek Jedi that he decided to add the character to Attack of the Clones. (That image is the first picture in the concept art section of this page.)

At the time, Attack of the Clones was already in post-production and Costume Supervisor Gillian Libbert only had two weeks to construct the costume. With over-the-phone guidance from Costume Designer Trisha Biggar and input from George Lucas, Libbert gathered together extra fabric and created Aayla's costume. In the end, even fabric from Jar Jar's leather vest was used. With Libbert's costume and four hours of make-up, ILM Production Assistant Amy Allen became Aayla Secura. With the character's subsequent popularity, Aayla Secura was also used in Revenge of the Sith.

The Official Star Wars site has a interesting article on Aayla's transition from comic books to the big screen. Definitely worth a read! Additionally, Jedi Aayla is a great, comphrehensive fansite dedicated to Aayla Secura!
