The Labyrinth - thrifted and crafted!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Tiffany, the 'The Labyrinth' costume creator:
My husband and I dressed as Jareth and Sarah from The Labyrinth.
DIY and thrifty cost breakdown on our Sarah and Jareth (The Labyrinth) costumes:
Dress: Goodwill $20 I modified it with some bling, added an additional puffed sleeve on each arm. I stuffed them with some fabric from hobby Lobby and old tulle that came on the veil for the dress. I sewed on a few gold appliques and sequins so it would look more like the dress from the movie. I used another cheap ($2) skirt to make another layer on the dress, and I sewed on some more iridescent fabric to the skirt part of the dress as well.
* to puff out the dress I put bubble wrap around a belt and put it on under the dress. I barely fit in the car!
My shoes : $3 thrift store
My hair accessories and dress bling: Hobby lobby $10
My necklace: I made it years ago and added leftover stuff from my hairpiece on it
Pants: crushed velvet stirrup pants via etsy $8
The base jacket: is a womenís Dressbarn coat ($4 thrift store) then I added the sequined parts from an old 90ís shirt via a thrift store. I sewed a piece of cardboard into the neckline to get it to stand up. I also sewed up the front parts of the jacket to make it more angled like a tux or band jacket style. I glued sequins and jewels to the shoulders and added some flare to the back of the jacket as well.
Ascot: silver fabric $3 and pin $5 I just shaped the fabric like an ascot and pinned it on.
Belt: thrift store $1
Other bling on jacket: I already had them and just glued them on.
Wig: $6 online ( I added blue paint to it to match the blue highlights in movie.)
Faux knee high boots: $8 online. I used a black marker to cover up the skull and crossbones and added jewels to them.
Bell sleeves on jacket: I literally just cut them off of a kids dance costume I found at the thrift store. They had elastic in them, so he just put them on under the jacket like a bracelet.
Crystal ball: clear xmas ornament via a thrift store $1
