Cosplayer: Methos

Variant: Ballroom scene

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

22nd November 2012: Jareth's pants... Ok, after careful considoration, and testing both high waist black trousers and velvet black leggings, i've decided that the leggings are the best match for the costume...

Not only are they more character accurate for the rest of the movie, but they actually work better with the overall look of the outfit so far, with the plain black pants looking slightly odd against the lush material of the jacket and the shirt...


18th November 2012: wigs... Ok, i would have posted a picture of myself wearing the wig i ordered to complete the ensamble... only, to put it mildly i guess, the wig i'd recieved this morning... it was shit... honestly, i think i must have chosen the worst wig on the planet :(

Anyway, new wig ordered today, with help from store recommendations from a few other lovely cosplayers, i've found a gorgeous wig and placed the order, so fingers crossed the wig should be here in a few days :D


16th November 2012: Pendant has arrived :D Just received the custom Jareth pendant... oh my god, it's even more gorgeous than i thought it would be :D


13th November 2012: zee jacket has arrived :D Woohoo, the stunningly gorgeous coat has arrived...

Now, time to actually make some headway in customizing it...

*stares at the gorgeous coat*

This is going to be a nightmare...


12th November 2012: A new jacket cometh... Ok, having been working around the premise and researching ways of using the previously mentioned black jacket in the ensamble, i've actually scrapped that whole idea, after finding this amazingly gorgeous blue jacket to use instead...

It's a bit more expensive, and will still require customising the shoulders, back and wrists, but on the whole i think the blue jacket is a vast improvement over the black one...

ordered now and waiting for delivery :D


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.

The jacket is looking amazing. Do those gems add a lot of weight to it?

Methos avatar

Methos - 27th April 2013
@ArcaneArchery yeah, practically doubles the weight of it... makes it almost bullet proof as well lmao
