"Eirtaé - Royal Handmaiden" created by Elias

Eirtaé was a female human who was part of Queen Amidala's retinue of handmaidens. Contrarily to all the other handmaidens and to the Queen herself, she had blond hair. When the Trade Federation invaded Naboo, Eirtaé was one of the three handmaidens who accompanied Amidala to Coruscant, the capital of the Galactic Republic. When the Queen returned to her homeworld in hopes of retaking it, the blonde handmaiden joined the struggle. In the aftermath, Eirtaé was present at the funeral of Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master who had lost his life during the conflict.

This was a very quick repaint by Elias, but the results are pretty stellar.  Once the base coat was applied, all he needed was a few washes and some drybrushed in highlights to make this figure really pop. This a great custom action figure to do for beginning customizers and it's a great way to increase the size of Padme's royal entourage.
