Jareth: The Goblin King

Welcome to my new blog. I decided that I needed a place to put all the crafty projects that I do alongside my cakes. Although I knew it would interest my cake readers I thought having a separate blog would help people find my craft posts more easily and appeal to those who have no interest in edible crafting.  

I’m kicking off with my biggest project to date, my costume for a new convention that Northern Ireland hosted over the weekend. Heroes & Legends was run by the fab Emerald Garrison who make the most amazing screen accurate costumes from a wide variety of movies and TV series. The convention was amazing with a great range of characters, sets, star guests and merch. While I have made costumes before and worn them in public this was defintitely the most difficult one I have ever attempted. As it was such a rush at the end there were lots of things I wasn’t 100% happy with but overall I received really positive comments and reactions. And to top it all off, I had an absolute blast wearing it.

I don’t have as many pictures as I’d like because I was so anxious to get everything finished on time but I’m going to share what I have and talk a little about how I made each piece. I’m also going to scare myself with details on the cost of everything too!

This is the final costume. Click through for all the progress pics, it is very image heavy so apologies in advance!
