52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Ghostly White

Last week I watched one of my favorite movies of all time: Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. I always pull out the creepy movies around this time, but there is so much awesomeness in this one I don’t know where to begin. Perhaps with David Bowie as the Goblin King. He sings, my friends, and he dances with goblins. He also wears the most amazing clothes, and the hair, well, I don’t even have words for the hair. So imagine my delight when I found that Lexi Vargas of GlamDammit had created a whole Goblin King ensemble! He kindly agreed to Bowie-up for this photo shoot, and a magnificent Goblin King he doth make! All of this was also on my mind since the Costume Ball event starts next week and looks to be a fantastic event.

Now admit it girls, you ALL wanted to be Jennifer Connelly in the ballroom scene (very creepy scene, but very cool) when you first saw this movie. The poofy dress, the big hair, the gorgeous jewelry, and getting to dance with the villanous-yet-attractive Goblin King…it just sent my young female brain right over the edge. My poofy dress comes courtesy of Sascha Frangilli, and let’s face it, for ballroom-wear, Sascha just can’t be beat. I will give away a Sascha’s gift card next week!

    You are so right about Labyrinth. That gown has always been near the top of my favorite movie costumes, and I love what you’ve done here.

    Definitely one of my all-time favourite films, and Jareth was one of my first crushes *g* But I’d say as I went on in life, I’d rather be him than Jennifer! That ballroom scene was indeed fantastic, the whole film – along with Tale of the Dark Crystal – probably helped shape my imagination and well… you can see from my blog where THAT went! 😉
