With the new Netflix series, Dark Crystal Age of Resistance, we are all excited to get back into Jim Henson’s world of Gelflings and Skeksis! When I was a kid I was fascinated with the first movie. It scared me so much that I couldn’t sleep, but yet I kept watching that VHS tape over and over.
I loved the design work, and have seen a long lasting influence on my costuming and artwork. While the design was brilliant, it was also that it was all real. I knew that everything existed somewhere, those creepy castle rooms, the Gartham, and of course the Skeksis.
I am sure that with the new show coming out people will want to do some Dark Crystal cosplay. And Aradani is here to help!
Our friend Amanda did a great Kira cosplay at DragonCon in 2010. She made the whole costume herself except for the ears, which we made of course.
The ears you would want for a Gelfling would definitely be our Faun ears.
We can’t wait for the new show, especially if that means more Dark Crystal costumes!
About the Show:
“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” returns to the world of Thra, where three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power and set out to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.
