Sarah's prize: the head of the beggar bird, which Jareth disguised himself as in the Labyrinth tunnels.
I loved that vulture-headed costume, and I love the idea of Sarah flaunting her victory with spoils, something that belonged to the King.
I hate working with dark colors and severe shadows, and I'm still not very good at it, so I thought I'd practice. Dark fabric is way less of a brainache than light. I don't even know if that makes sense, but oh, it's true.
I realized too late that the little skull pinned to the hat is a tiny humanlike skull and not a rodent's. Even creepier! A faerie skull? A tiny goblin?
It's only a costume, just rags and bones, but what's Jareth's is Jareth's. No doubt he'll make it a mission to get it back and teach her a little lesson...
