Happy Halloween and Merry Samhain! After a week of hints and numerous great guesses, I am pleased to reveal my costume.
I was Jareth, the Goblin King from Labyrinth. On the left is the costume I attempted to reproduce. Jareth wears it in the As the World Falls Down/ballroom scene. It's a good thing I really like that song, because I had to watch it for reference quite a bit.
I'm not sure why I picked this particular outfit. Jareth wears about eight or nine different outfits in the movie, all of a very similar style, but this one particularly struck a chord with me.
You guys are good. Several people were correct, but C Girl's Life guessed the answer first, on Day 3. And I was afraid that no one would get it. C Girl, please contact me at spookyseamstress AT gmail DOT com regarding your prize.
Since there were so many guesses, I will also be picking a random winner, which I will announce today or tomorrow.
The patterns I used were all Simplicity: 2172, 3629, 3685, and 4077. Reviews to come.
Thanks to everyone who participated. I hope you had as much fun as I did. I'll definitely do this again next year.
