Not to be outdone, David Bowie used the arm hair of an orangutan to fashion the wig for his Labyrinth costume. Kidding, kidding. This is the actual Goblin King costume, though, on loan from the Jim Henson Family Collection.
Within the Canyon of Light and Shadows are several artifacts of good and evil: the Pan face used in Pan's Labyrinth, Sirius Black's prison costume, Charlize Theron's Evil Queen feather cape from Snow White and the Huntsman, the sword of Inigo Montoya (you killed my father, prepare to die) and Count Rugen's six-fingered glove from The Princess Bride.
Charlize Theron's feather cape from Snow White and the Huntsman. Fancy yourself more of a Xena, warrior princess? Take the archetype quiz in the forest room to find out what fantasy character you're most like: the Companion? The Unlikely Hero? The Female Warrior? More than one Seattle Met editor was deemed "the Witch," meant to live alone and embittered in the woods. Huh.
In addition to this original illustration from C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia series, the exhibit includes a few pages from The Lord of the Rings. Marquette actually owns the original manuscript of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The university had decided to collect works by Catholic authors and approached Lewis and Tolkien (who sold the text for $5,000). Jasen Emmons, EMP director of curatorial affairs, says someone at Christie's estimates The Lord of the Rings manuscript to be worth $20 million now. You can see Tolkien's edits, like where he crosses out "Elfstone" and "Trotter" and replaces it with "Aragorn," as well as his own handwritten Middle-earth spreadsheet. The museum has an A set and B set of Tolkien artifacts. Each set will show for three months before being returned to Marquette.
