This was her starting point for Jareth.

Because the character had dark hair, she used the head of this Barbie.

This Barbie head wouldn’t be completely wasted though. She was going to use the blonde hair for Jareth and use the earrings on the other Barbie head.

To create the eyeshadow and gloves, she used enamel model paint to give Jareth an authentic feel.

She cut off the pompadour using a razor blade to create the hair-line she was going to need.

Because the hair-line didn’t match exactly, she used black enamel to give the character the hair-line that was needed.

She also used the black enamel paint to thicken her eyebrows.
