I was really excited about the Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde challenge when it was brought up. I wanted to do a style that could have two fairly different looks but still be the same clothes. For the theme, I went with reds and blacks. Red is often linked with love and aggression, and I feel like Mr. Hyde is an embodiment of Dr. Jekyll’s aggression and negative side. I also decided to go with a bow tie. Jekyll is a scientist and I imagine him getting dressed up for an important event and making sure everything looked right. Hyde on the other hand has the bow tie undone and the collar open. 

Jekyll wears his hair up and restrained. Hyde’s is down and a little wild. Jekyll is proper. Hyde is wickedness personified. 

I hope you enjoy my take on this classic character.
