Jareth

Labyrinth’s Jareth costume worn by David Bowie

Our oldest daughter, Taylor has been visiting us for the past week, so I haven’t done any actual sewing. We did take in a lot of sights around the city, including a great Jim Henson exhibit at COSI science center…. where I got to see one of David Bowie’s most famous roles, Jareth the Goblin King.

Even if you’re not a fan of the movie Labyrinth, chances are you’ll recognize the costume anyway (and not just because of the crotch bulge). I stared at it for quite some time (and not just because it was worn by David Bowie) because the jacket is so ornate and the ascot is perfectly fluffy and frilly. PLUS, Sara’s ballgown was there as well! Overall, what amazing costuming!
