This was the costume I "made" for Halloween last year for my little brother. We have a tradition of always assembling costumes from thrifted items and it's always a delight to see how they turn out. Unfortunately, I never think to take pictures in the process, but I thought I'd show you guys how the final costume turned out anyway!

Hopefully, you've seen the awesomeness that is The Labyrinth. My brother decided to be David Bowie's character, Jarreth. And it was full of awesome.

We bought his wig on ebay. Everything else was either made or thrifted. He wore women's boots for the costume, but I bet you Bowie did too. ; ) I did his make up with everyday cosmetic and assembled him a cool scepter thingy. Enjoy!

nice Jareth costume. I especially like the cane.  If you like Jim Hensons work, you should check out my Skeksis from Dark Crystal Costume:

you sure theres a the in the title? I just remember it being called Labyrinth...
Nice! Although to be Labyrinth worthy the tights need to be tighter. Labyrinth is my favorite movie of all time.

I wouldn't consider Labyrinth not a popular movie. Practically everyone I know watched it growing up.

But can he contact juggle?

The contact juggling was actually the whole reason I rented that movie. I was kind of disappointed that all the contact juggling consisted of was a butterfly in the beginning and some palm spinning later on. As for the rest of the movie, I found it to be strange and disjointed muppet movie...
but the impressive part of the contact juggling was that it actually wasn't his hands. the Guy doing it was actually kneeling behind him and couldn't see what he was doing.

Actually, he was on his knees in front of him. ;) I was quite saddened when I learned it wasn't Bowie.

Alas, his powers of awesome are not quite to that level yet. In time, in time. :)
I love this movie! Great job!

What is that plastic thing 'round his wrist? :) I wonder how many people will get that costume. It was a great movie--one of my favorites--but not a very popular one. (Trivia about the movie--The Dancing Doctor from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Gates McFadden, was the choreographer for Labyrinth.)

Ha! Great trivia! I did not know that!

Yeah, I realize the costume isn't as recognizable as like, Iron Man or something, but it's a movie I've always loved and I passed it on to my brother. It was great fun for us, and I know a few people out there would appreciate it. :)

Thanks for the comment and the trivia! _
