Cosplayer Dresses as Both Sarah and Jareth from Labyrinth

Labyrinth is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and the occasion might be helping inspire cosplayers to tackle costumes from the film. Ginny Di has had Sarah Williams’ elegant white gown on her wish list for many years and said she finally got the courage to make it. The results are impressive — she looks ethereal. And of course, Ginny’s already cosplayed Jareth. I kind of want her to keep crafting costumes just from Labyrinth.

Based on how involved Sarah’s dress was though, she might not feel inspired to dive right into another complex build. Ginny made the dress and jewelry from scratch. She repurposed jewelry pieces from the thrift store and also used the following materials:

— Hoop skirt (bought on Amazon)
— 5 skirt layers (2x tulle, 1x synthetic silk, 2x synthetic organza)
— Fully lined bodice, hand embellished with acrylic paint and glass and plastic beads
— Wig (A Wigisfashion lacefront with two secondhand half-head wigs sewn into the back for volume)
— Two hairpieces, made from jewelry wire, ribbon, and spray painted plastic leaves

The beads were all added to the bodice by hand. You can view a couple photos of supplies and the beginning stages of the dress below.

I like seeing her take on Jareth side by side with Sarah:
