Jareth likes asymmetry

So I received a commission to make Jareth in this outfit. You know, the one where he says, "Nothing? Nothing?? Tra-la-la?!"

I decided to move onto a higher quality fabric for the skin, which is microsuede. It's quite easy to draw on, but less stretchy...It seems the color I chose wasn't quite peachy enough, but hey, he's the thin white duke, after all...isn't he?

I must say the jacket took forever. There's the whole asymmetry of it, the odd lapels, the belt, the studs, the shoulder plate, the elbow thing, and the cape. That shoulder plate alone took me the whole two and a half hours of Inglourious Basterds to make (yes, I must watch TV/movies while working to keep myself from going crazy). I'm just glad it's over and done with. I don't know how many times I had to rewatch the scenes where Jareth wears that outfit to understand the physics of it. Thankfully I <3 Labyrinth or I would've gone insane.

I'm taking commissions if you'd like a doll of some sort, so send me an email if you're interested and read my COMMISSION INFO HERE. If you're only interested in Jareth, see the post below for prices.
