Beautiful Labyrinth Costume Featuring Sarah’s Ballgown

sarah labyrinth ballgown costume

Sarah’s ballgown in Labyrinth is nothing short of gorgeous. Yeah, it’s a little over the top, but it fits the setting. Ardella Cosplay loved the film and the message of self empowerment and strength and making Sarah’s dress has been on her cosplay wish list for a while. She wanted to keep true to the original design while creating a more timeless design that dropped some of the obvious 1980s touches. Here’s how she made the bodice and skirt:

The bodice is white bridal satin, lined in white and drafted by draping on my new body form. In the interest of comfort I decided to avoid a corseted bodice, using spiral steel boning only as support and to help keep it’s shape. The bodice closes with an open ended zip, covered by an extra panel with false buttons. Once it was completed I hand sewed white lace and individually added over 300 rhinestones.

The skirt is made up of three visible layers. The base is baby blue bridal satin, followed by a lustre fairy organza in purple and finished with a separate overskirt in white crystal organza. I kept this overskirt separate just in case it rips or gets dirty at a convention so that rather than taking apart the entire skirt I would only need to replace the top layer. A 6 hoop hoop skirt provides the puff underneath and a small amount of rhinestones are scattered over the top layer.
