30th October 2012: Starting the costume So far I've mainly been sourcing out items to start with, but here's what i've got so far...
Jacket - http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p171/methosivanhoe/Jareth/2012010912503257054.jpg
This will be first dyed a dark royal blue, before I work on the gemstones and decoration around the shoulder and arms... then a neck brace area will be created around the top of the collar, and blended with the material on the back, with the same gemstones and sequined decoration...
White ruffle shirt - http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p171/methosivanhoe/Jareth/259wt.jpg
Black tight fitting jodhpur style leggings, high stomach - http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p171/methosivanhoe/Jareth/2012011118163815829.jpg
Wig - http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p171/methosivanhoe/Jareth/sdf.jpg
Which will have blue streaks and a small amount of glitter through it.
And the crowning glory so far... the Jareth pendant, which I amazingly snapped up on Ebay
So those are the bits I have on order now, awaiting delivery so I can start the project...
I still have some bits to research, the makeup and contact lense for the left eye being the major parts to research next. Along with some black swordsman style gloves, and black riding boots with about an inch heel on them... both of which I'll be looking into over the next few weeks.
