Midsummer Night by dreamingSarah Midsummer Night by dreamingSarah
“So doth the woodbine the sweet honeysuckle Gently entwist; the female ivy so Enrings the barky fingers of the elm. O, how I love thee! how I dote on thee!"


An illustration inspired by :iconpaisleyrose: fanfiction "Midsummer's Nightmare." A very interesting look at the Jareth and Sarah relationship set to Shakespeare's Midsummer Nights Dream. [link]

That is in fact the Goblin King playing the part of the love sotted Bottom (or in this case the understudy of Bottom) and he's ....er...ahem...paying special attention to the young starlet Sarah Williams....

I'm so glad you enjoy it. Yes he looks thoroughly male, as much as he can behind the mask anyway. Kind of happy with himself too!

I admit I was having trouble picturing that mask and how it worked. Now I won't have that problem anymore. Very nice indeed. I can't stop marveling at it!

Thank you. I had the most fun designing the mask without making it look too "donkeyish" which was a challenge. I'm pleased with the final product though.

I am so touched... and so thrilled.... You've captured so much of what I was trying to convey in my story... and I love the mask as you've sketched it... it's exactly what I had in mind when I wrote that scene.... Thank you so much for this tribute to my story...I"m adding this one to my favorites right now!
