We've recently moved & until today, I wasn't sure I wanted to make the 3 hour drive for a friend's party. But I am going & now have 23 days to put together an amazing costume. I have a few ideas, but am not 100% sure how to pull any of them off. Here's what I've got.

Jareth (aka the Goblin King) from Labyrinth. My biggest issue with the is the wig. I can piece together clothing & get my hands on a crystal ball.

1950s inspired Jack Skellington or Sally. Would need to find just the right vintage pieces. Sally could have fun red hair, styled in a 50s style.

Sexy Jack Skellington. Because one of these had to be the token "sexy" option but think it's easiest to piece items together.

Input appreciated. Maybe other ideas completely, but I want to decide by this weekend so I can go thrifting.

Jareth wig (pretty much spot on, might need some trimming up tho)

LOVE the idea of a 50s Sally. A patchwork poodle skirt, but instead of a poodle, you could have Zero! (or Jack's face). But that would require some sewing skills...
This wig might work for Sally: http://www.spirithalloween.com/product/black-and-red-doll-wig/58978.uts?keyword=red wig&thumbnailIndex=18


Those would be my two faves on your list anyway (but any of them would be nifty!)

That Jareth wig is very close! The more I look around, the more I am leaning towards 50s Jack or Sally. Trying to talk my husband into going as Jack. There are vintage tail coat suits on ebay. I have ZERO sewing skills. I could potentially cut & glue felt onto a base. I like this wig for Sally, but not sure it's bright enough. http://www.yandy.com/Red-Pin-Up-Girl.php I found an amazing pinstripe wiggle dress on etsy but brown, not black. I'm striking out so far.

Thank you for this. Just this little bit of idea bouncing has sorted things out for me. I'm going as 1950s inspired Jack with this dress. http://www.unique-vintage.com/1940s-style-black-white-pinstripe-maria-wiggle-dress.html

I will wear a NBC tiny top hat I got at Disneyland once, heels & black silky gloves. I think I'll use felt to add skeleton bones to the gloves. The only skeleton gloves I can find to purchase are not attractive/50s feel.
