Massimiliano Poggi as Jareth from Labyrinth. Picture taken by me during Lucca Cosplay 2010.
Other pictures from the same set:
*Sandman-AC managed to capture one of the most wonderful Goblin King cosplays that I have had the pleasure of viewing.A blast straight from my past, I had to make sure that it wasn't David Bowie, though the model in the photograph does a fabulous job. All I can say about it is: "You have thirteen hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes one of us... forever." Jareth by *Sandman-AC (
Oh my....I don't even know how to begin to say how much this man looks like David Bowie as Jareth. *applauds* Well done!
This photo is fantastic! The lighting really makes it. Also, I really enjoy the fact the crystal is out of focus and the small bits of lens flare in the back to feel like he has more crystals. It really ties in the composition~!
The likeness is phenomenal. It suspends disbelief in a way most cosplay costumes are unable to do. I think the majority of female Jareth fans might even choose this Jareth over the "real" thing. Amazingly well done, both in costume and in the way you captured this character in film.
Would I be able to maybe use this in a signature? I WILL give you credit for this photograph and I'll show you the results of it if / when I make the signature (if you would like to see the ending results).
And I love this cosplay, by the way. <3 It's . . . I'm not sure if it's weird, creepy or awesome on the fact that the model actally resembles David Bowie. It's crazy! He defintely looks like David Bowie!!
