View Full Version : Supernatural cosplays?

I'm talking about the show on the CW, not random generic werewolves, vampires, elves, etc.

I've seen a few here and it inspired me to get my butt working on my Lilith costume. I love the creepy lil' demon and I want to do her costume before she's killed off; which means I want to premiere her at a con sometime before S4 ends, since I'm sure she'll be dead by the end of this season.

Anyway, how noticeable would a Lilith be to SPN fans? The damn demon changes hosts so many times, it's hard to choose a costume. But I decided to go with her most distinguishable, the dress with the blood on it from No Rest For the Wicked;
http://www.supernatural.tv/gallery/s3/norest/wmplayer%202008-05-16%2016-02-45-95.jpg

Along with the blood on the hands. Since I have a wig that I could easily add a barrette to and matt it/wave it up a bit, I may just do this for Halloween and for a small convention coming around my town at the end of September once I get my hand on some fake blood.

As far as I know, there isn't really trustworthy contacts that are all white that won't blind you, but if there are and somebody can direct me to them for a cheap price, I'd appreciate it. I was also thinking about doing her once she takes over in Ruby's host in the finale, but if people even recognized it, it would be confused easily unless I found some all white contacts.

Anyone else thinking about doing a Supernatural cosplay? If not, input on the Lilith idea?

As a fellow Supernatural fan, I think trying cosplay based on it would be a fantastic idea. The only unfortunate part is that the CW is more known for its teen dramas, placing Supernatural on the back burner as well as a less widely 'realized show'.
In honesty, I'm unsure if I'd recognize a cosplay as Lilith even as a fan. Also, because she changes forms so often (as you mentioned), it might be hard to pin point what you'd be cosplaying as just from seeing you.
On the bright side, the downside to that character can also be a strength. Because she switches 'bodies' so often, you don't have to worry about looking exactly like the character you're trying to portray. If you could pull off her insanely creepy attitude- and perhaps drag around a few 'loving hostages', it may be more recognizable.
Judging from the pictures I've seen from your profile- you seem like you could pull off the child-like features (which is what seems to be her trademark).

I've thought about cosplaying someone from Supernatural in the past, but I have doubts in my ability to do so. It's much harder, I find, to emulate someone that already exists if you don't already look similar (whereas what's animated can be better forced).

As you've both said, SPN would be hard to recognize, but still a lot of fun. I'm planning to get black lenses for another costume and might use them sometime as Meg.

Riiko Izawa

@ Rukeya:
Those are all really good points. I guess I was hoping if there were Supernatural fans around, they'd recognize the costume and all - since it seems to be one of her more 'major' ones since the finale isn't really easily forgotten. But that's also why I wanted to try and find all white contacts (no luck so far online for a decent price), I figured that might make it easier even if somebody would have to get into a close range to tell.
You're also right about it being harder to dress up as a character from an actual show if you don't look similar to them, I had those doubts at first with Lilith (so the comment about me being able to pull off the child like features was a big relief, thanks :)) but then you see all the Dark Knight Jokers and Harry Potter characters that sometimes don't look very similar to the actors, but it's still a fun thing to do. Let me know if you ever decide to go for it!

@Bassringer: Meg would be bad-arse. (; We could wreck demon-havoc.. that is, of course, assuming you lived anywhere near me and we went to any of the same cons, which I doubt both with my luck.
But still, Meg's an awesome character, she's one of my favorite demons.


*EDIT* I found contacts at a Halloween contacts store, do these look good for Lilith's eyes?

My friend borrowed my Namine wig for a cosplay of her's, so I can't do much with the wig until I get it back early October but progress pictures as far as the dress (and contacts if I can order those ones I posted in time) should be up soon.

Rukeya
09-16-2008, 11:33 PM
Those contacts would look awesome (and creepy)!

Riiko Izawa
09-17-2008, 05:01 AM
Thanks for the feedback, I think I'll definitely be going with those ones - though it's not the best idea for Halloween since they hinder your sight dramatically as far as I know, I'll have friends with me there and at the con, so I guess it won't matter.

For anyone that has worked with contacts before, I do need to make an appointment to get the proper measurements for a prescreption, right? I've never dealt with contacts before, so I'm not sure.

Bassringer
09-17-2008, 02:29 PM
The law says you can't get lenses in the US without a prescription. And it's probably not AS big a deal with regular (non-sclera) sized lenses, but I learned the hard way that not all eyeballs are curved equally, so your optometrist will be able to make sure that the ones on that site will actually sit properly on your eye.

As for con demon havoc, I'm always looking for more cons where I can exhibit. If there are big ones in your neck of the woods, I'd love to hear about them.

Riiko Izawa
09-17-2008, 04:01 PM
Good to know then, thanks. I made an appointment with my optometrist for next Tuesday just incase, so good to know I actually do need that appointment.

Hm, Anime Boston's pretty big (and getting bigger each year), and that's really the only one I go to. However, come '09 I'll have my lisence, so I'd be willing to travel out somewhere, too. As long as my friends are up for it, seeing as how those contacts apparently impair your vision, I don't really want to run into walls because of being by myself. aha.

I just realized you're in Canada, that's probably a bit too far for me to be willing to go for a convention. Nevermind. (;


**EDIT** - The first progress pictures of Lilith will be up either October 1st or 2nd, since that's when I'll be getting my wig back from a friend to work on it all together.

awww! time to resurrect this thread and see if I cant get more SPN Fans to squee a bit. Anime is fun but I'm finding a new challenge with this XD

For Anime LA I'll be wandering around as John Winchester with my friend going as Dean. really....if someone knows who we are I'll be impressed. but I'm doing the costume for me [as the challenge in this is to make me, 27 YO woman look like a 540/50yo stubbled rough faced man]
I think the hardest part thus far....the clothing and a wig for John o.o; guh! Anyone know any good SPN Galleries?

I'm waiting for the right wig to come in but at the same time X.x; I've gone one that will stand in alright. blah! what a frustrating day being a cosplayer AND a photographer.

Yet I totally want to see SPN costumes!



@ OP
US law says that you need perscreption but if you order from Korea/China/Japan for Soft Contacts, you do not need one. Softs are easier for people who dont use contacts regularly and because they are soft you dont have to worry about scratching your eyes.

Kinda Supernatural related. I'm cosplaying as Priestly(Jensen Ackles) from the movie Ten Inch Hero for halloween. Btw if there is any kind of supernatural cosplay it's gonna be at supernatural con but the only downside is that the ticket cost is quite crazy.

If you haven't seen Ten Inch Hero...do so it's a fun film about love. Plus it has Dean Winchester in a kilt and various mohawk styles and colors.

I think it would be difficult to cosplay Supernatural, considering that there's not much beyond normal street clothes that you'd have to wear. Not really a costume, but then again Twilight has cosplay too, so I guess anything's fair game. I'm into Supernatural, but I don't think there's any costume involved with this one.

Inoli
10-02-2009, 11:20 PM
ah but see this is where I jump on my soap box.
what does it matter guy or girl? its simply a costume.
I'm all for cross playing. I find something that is going to be hard about every costume and leap for it. John will be fun cause I get to make myself look not only older but give myself facial hair XD I have a really round face so I've tried a full beard and ended up looking like Bobby instead XD it was highly entertaining.

so yes, normal clothing but the trick is to make sure people know who you are =P a LOT of animes could be called "normal clothing" My closet spit out Gojyo!Saiyuki and Sebastian from er black butler no problem. really.... if you want to get perfectionist about a costume.... you really can with some of these.

10-03-2009, 12:21 AM
I stand corrected. And I wasn't making notions towards applying a perfectionist attitude towards cosplay at all, but overall the hobby is about costumes. And I also agree that lots of anime have popular characters who would remain indistinguishable if cosplayed (just think every high school anime).

The hobby is overall about costumes, but what are those costumes used for ? To look like the character. Im still buying a wig for Ruby and making her knife so its con-appropriate as well as going through to make sure the costume will be 100% accurate, so I don't see how that makes this any different than cosplaying from any other series.

10-05-2009, 10:03 AM
Exactly. When I do Bela, it's going to be screen accurate, as close as can possibly be (I'm doing http://tvmedia.ign.com/tv/image/article/819/819281/supernatural-20070911023733909-000.jpg outfit.

Woot! My Supernatural photoshoot is this weeked. It should be lots of fun, everyone involved is super insane excited for it so I'll be sure to post lots of pictures X3 The final cast list stands at Sam, Dean, Castiel, Anna, Chastity, S3 Ruby, Lucifer and Chuck. We tried to find a Bobby and John but couldn't :( boo. Maybe next time.

For now here is my make-up/wig/costume test as Castiel. Did the test so I know what I need to change up make-up wise for the shoot (though we'll be outside so the lighting is more forgiving thank goodness lol). I'm the only crossplayer in the shoot cause we ran out of male cosplayers and I'm 6' so I'm our groups default spare male XD lol

Castiel test, yay (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2302155/)

Me as John Winchester [gotta make the ageing make-up a little more noticeable] and my friends as Dean and Sam. This was done at Anime LA this year. XD I did have a lot of fun just suddenly disappearing into the crowd of older men photographers. my friends had a LOT of trouble keeping track of me.

I plan on dressing up as Castiel but dunno if I should go as the canon version or a gender-bent version... Me being a girl and all has me leaning towards the girl version...

Well ultimately the choice is up to you. A male Cas will probably be more recognizable but i'm sure if you have the trench and blank expression either way work.

Personally I like the idea of a male Castiel, but again the only opinion that matters if yours. Do what will make you happiest.

I must admit, I was a little surprised to find this thread here.

For this next AnimeIowa (yes, I know, a Sci-Fi character at an Anime Con. Shoot me ;p) my boyfriend wants to Cosplay as Sam Winchester. Now, this makes me fangirl massively, but I'm not entirely sure who I should cosplay in order to, you know, stalk him.

I'm seriously considering going as Bella (To which he responded "Oh, the evil bitch?" ) or Jess, but I"m afraid both would be extremely vague to the non uber geek.

What would you guys suggest? (Reference pic: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=10685190&id=712515647&op=1&view=global&subj=505809516 )

I love Supernatural, but the problem with the series for cosplay is it's all street wear. >_<

Lillith in her final act the last episode of the 4th season the white dress, her adult form at lest has something other worldly going on about her.

Also don't know how you feel about Black Sclera contacts but you always know who the demons are with those puppies.

I think the big thing about doing a Supernatural group would be, staying together as a group, since if not, they would look like normal clothes. Which does work too. I plan on going as Season 3 Ruby (the blonde version) to DragonCon at some point, whenever I can get a group together.

I'm thinking about doing a Ruby (blond) for the Asylum Europe Con. It should be pretty easy, since my hair looks almost like her's and the clothes are easy to get. Eventhough I doubt that people recognise me... it's SPN Con... so they actually might. ^^

I love the idea of Supernatural Cosplay, but you're right, it's so hard to recognise... A friend of mine wants to do Bela some time, but we are still searching for Sam and Dean.

I'm a girl and I cosplayed Male Castiel. You just need a lot o' make-up and binding and a good wig (I had to style mine a decent amount).

I have a small handful of pics from our SPN shoot in my cos.com gallery and a make-up test for Cas for those who are girls thinking of being Castiel.
Most of the photo's from our actual shoot are at my friends gallery here (http://usagihikaru.deviantart.com/gallery/#Supernatural-Cosplay)

Sadly it was cold as hell the day we did the shoot, so now we're waiting for the snow to melt to do another shoot on a day when its nicer so we can take better pictures where we don't all look cold and upset XD lol My stubble make-up also started coming off because I was cold and kept hugging people so it start to smudge lol

I think for demons if you have some degree of black out contacts people might get who you are (or yellow, or white) even if its not full eyes and just iris black out I think people who are fans of the show would get it.

I really like this, and your makeup is amazingly good. Might I give a small suggestion though? Misha has a really square and defined jaw bone, while yours is a bit more rounded, perhaps you could try adding some shadow to the corners of your jaw to add a fake contour there? Otherwise, its awesome and I made some photos my favorites on deviant art. x]

Kat Murz
03-22-2010, 10:33 PM
Glad you liked it ^__^ Its finally getting nice out here so we're hoping to get more/better pictures.

My make-up for that shoot I feel personally didn't turn out as well as I usually can do >__>
I did some shading on my jaw to square it up, though you're right I do need more; it didn't read overly well on camera.
I was also a MORON and A.) Didn't use fixative that day on it, and B.) Kept hugging the other girls when they got cold and hid in my coat by snuggling with them...with my cheek on top of their head...and fucked up my make-up.

So to those doing girl<Guy cosplay...ummm, fixative. Remember to use it or your make-up will get f-ed up something wicked. Especially when running around outside.

In general I stress fixative for shoots and cons when in any make-up, especially heavy make-up like this because it keeps you looking fresh and pretty...
...and then promptly forgot my bottle when I did make-up that morning.

@Kandell its like pulling TEETH finding two people who cosplay them. My Sam and Dean are in California. =\ There are a MILLION old mines and ghost towns in Colorado's mountains that would be perfect for a SPN Photoshoot/film.

it's gonna be a series of videos for youtube, like a spin-off of Supernatural, focusing on basically female versions of Sam and Dean but a bit of a different storyline :3

Keep checking around. Also, do you plan on having a lot of interaction with them? I have seen people get away with not having the right people but just showing the backs or distance shots. (If you have ever seen the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, they used "Lucy"'s stand in for some of the shots when she first goes through the wardrobe (you have to love commentary)).

They're only in the first episode so far, but we have it written where we push past them and Dean checks out the one while Sam and my character just exchange angsty looks. For the parts showing their faces, I might be able to get away with footage from the actual show, but I'd really like to find guys ((or girls)) that look enough like them where we could show their faces and while it's apparent that it's not really them, it gets the point across that it's supposed to be Sam and Dean.

Yeah it makes sense. It is just a bit more difficult with Supernatural because you have to find people that look a lot alike because there are no real "supernatural costumes", just normal clothes (though I guess Dean's jacket and necklace...)

i really want the 67 impala. i tried finding one for months now, no one is selling a 67 impala 4 door hardtop. i have given up looking, but that car is the most kick ass "family car" ever.

but I'd really like to find guys ((or girls)) that look enough like them where we could show their faces and while it's apparent that it's not really them, it gets the point across that it's supposed to be Sam and Dean. Does that make sense? 0.o

you and a thousand other girls want to find guys that look like Sam and Dean, lol.

Hiii back and reviving the thread with a Lookie! pictures!

Me as John Winchester [gotta make the ageing make-up a little more noticeable] and my friends as Dean and Sam. This was done at Anime LA this year. XD I did have a lot of fun just suddenly disappearing into the crowd of older men photographers. my friends had a LOT of trouble keeping track of me.Dude, I totally saw you guys at ALA. At one point I was gonna go after you guys for a pic, but by the time I fished out my camera you had vanished! I was tipped off at Artist Alley that that's who you guys were, but I think I would have figured it out. I'd like to think so, anyway.

If I had a group I would totally do SPN cosplay. It's my favorite non-cancelled show. I just started text RPing from it, actually. For me looking like the character isn't the point. For someone of my body type, it can't be the point or else I would never get to cosplay anyone since the people on TV and even in animated programs are usually all built similarly. It's rare to find a character that looks anything like me. So forget about following those guidelines.

@SirenaBlack I'll be back this ALA with John ^^ my Sam and Dean live out there and this is the only time of the year I get to see them. I think sometimes those shows are hard to cosplay from because they have realistic but SET body types. I've done my best not to let that get to me.... but alas as my body type is very much so on the masculine side I can pull off men a HELL of a lot better then woman.... [ do not beat me cosplay friends over my shoulder reading D=] Kinda why I chose John. enough make up I've got the wide shoulders of a man to pull off him....or Bobby actually XD [that has amusing stories of meeting my new neighbors with a full onset beard XD]

and btw... of course we vanish that quickly... we are after all Hunters ;)P . If you wanted [or anyone else] I could totally do gore make up on you and/or friends and we can set up a SPN Shoot that way! it was so funny... of ALL conventions we couldn't find anyone from Silent hill or any of the other horror amines or games to play with D= it was super sad!

I'd love to cosplay from SPN but the biggest issue I'm running into is that it sees a bit difficult to cosplay from live action stuff. In my opinion. But that's just my opinion. I'd love to but I don't know who I'd be....

09-15-2010, 04:14 PM
I'd like to find a red-head and go as Ruby (brunette Ruby all the way! I will never understand why people hate her and like the blond one) with black wings with her as Anna with white ones. I wouldn't care if no one got it.

I've cosplayed from Supernatural! Once you get a few basic makeup techniques down for yourself, it's really not that hard. My Castiel ( http://xnotsoserious.deviantart.com/art/Castiel-Concerned-Closeup-164328765?q=&qo= ) and my SPN group from Acen 2010 turned out pretty well! ( http://xnotsoserious.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2pu58u )

I'll be Cas for Acen 2011, if anyone's going, hit me up! I'd love to start another group.

@CloroxEnvy, if I saw you at a con I would totally ask for a hug AND a picture. You look awesome.

[Slightly off-topic, but if anyone likes text RPing my friend just started an SPN text RP. Afraid the boys and Cas are taken, but everything else is wide open and she really wants original characters. It is by application, but that's just so she knows it isn't someone who randomly found the place without knowing what SPN really is. I can send links if anyone's interested (I would post a link here, but it would make me feel like even more of a spammer XD).

Ok, sorry for that commercial break *bow bow*]

I have 2 versions of Jessica in the making. Her Halloween Costume is almost done, and I am starting on her PJ's with the Smurfs Shirt. I also almost have Jo done. Her outfit from 'Everyone loves a Clown' (The Black Tank, Jeans, and Apron). At one point I would love to make a pregnant Mary Winchester outfit, but we'll see.

Oh good lord, what have I gotten myself into? XD
I casually watch the first episode a few days ago because I was bored and the interweb people say the show is really good...several hours later (SEVERAL) I'm into season 3 and cant stop watching!
And of course, I now want to cosplay from it, but the only girls i know so far are Meg and Jo, both blonds, and I cant pull of blond :/ Damn the boys for being such macho men, my shoulders arent that broad :<

Oh well, I guess I'll just sit on the sidelines for now and tell you guys how awesome 'yall look in yours! :D

ItalianPeach
01-30-2011, 10:32 PM
Ya know, I didn't think about it Until your Post Kenshin, but a lot of the girls that last more then 1 or 2 episodes are blonde. A Few pop up. Have you run into Bela Yet? She is Brunette, and there are a few more in the later seasons.

kenshin-chan64
02-02-2011, 01:09 AM
Yeah, I've meet Bela. I dont think I could puller off very well though, as her features are sharp and whatever ancestry she comes from, it's far off from mine XD But I'll put her on a maybe list if nothing shows up.
Without too much spoiling (I dont mind a little bit, I'm never fully in the dark about a series/episode), is there a ginger chick in any of the other seasons? A medium to long length redheaded character would make an easy/lazy cosplay for me XD Just gotta worry about clothes, no need to fuss over a wig.

Eh, whatever though. I'll just continue my watching and if it comes down to it, I could put my and the actor/es' faces into Photoshop to compare facial features and structures (I look into the mirror and all I see is me. I have a hard time trying to imagine myself as another person.)

ItalianPeach
02-02-2011, 01:20 AM
The Ginger is Anna, I won't go into any detail other then that. And the fact that I think she is pretty awesome, I really like her.

Also, in season 4, one of the main Chicks of the season is a brunette.

Not a Problem! Not that I did to much.

XD Random Demons and Ghosts! I always kinda wanted to do the Crossroads Demon. We have a group getting together at Dragon*Con this year, and the only demon we have is a Ruby so far... It is kinda sad... Its not Supernatural without ghosts and demons!

kenshin-chan64
02-16-2011, 02:01 AM
I've seen Anna, and I think she'll make a really easy closet cosplay! :D I have half the clothes now, but I cant decide on a jacket.
I've got three possibilities that I think might work.

This grey one I've had in my closet for a while. It's got a hood on it, but the hood can be rolled up and hidden in the collar (though it looks a little weird when done): http://i1008.photobucket.com/albums/af206/kenshin-chan64/quickies/105_0054.jpg

I was at the thrift store today and found an awesome green jacket which looks like this with the large knitted collar detached: http://i1008.photobucket.com/albums/af206/kenshin-chan64/quickies/105_0055.jpg

And I found this tan one too. I think this is the best contender style wise, even though it's corduroy and the wrong color (I think I can dye it closer to the green color she actually wears. It's a cotton/poly blend, but the ratio is much closer to cotton): http://i1008.photobucket.com/albums/af206/kenshin-chan64/quickies/105_0056.jpg

Thoughts?

Hi there, i'm a big fan of supernatural and I really wanted to cosplay good ol' Castiel, just i'm having problems with the trench coat (of awesome). Can I buy it? What would be a good pattern, Material? etc

I have no clue how to read patterns but i'm sure I could figure it out.

Here is a reference picture

http://www.supernaturalwiki.com/images/a/a2/Castiel.jpg

I was thinking of using this simplicity pattern http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-...atternid=13283

Any help would be amazing, thank you

I actually posted a seperate thread, but because I am blind I didn't notice this haha

kenshin-chan64
03-15-2011, 10:11 PM
I would recomend you try to hit your local good will and thrift shops. If you go to a large city (for me an example would be LA and Ventua), you can find many diffrent sized shops that might have something.
My last good will adventure, I was in a store that must have had at least 5 overcoats that could have been used for Cas. I wasnt watching SPN at the time, so I had no need for one...damn.
Search around, you're bound to find one this time of year, and if you're lucky it can be as low as 3 bucks! (less than many patters out there! :D )

03-16-2011, 07:05 AM
Unfortunately I live in London, and i've raided the charity shops a number of times and I cannot find a coat similar to Cas's one.

ItalianPeach
03-17-2011, 12:59 AM
Just keep trying, and always keep an eye out, that is all I can offer you.

Just ordered my Wig for Jessica. Once I get it I only need her Jewelry for her Nurse outfit, and her shirt for her Pajamas. Jo is done' other then the fact that I need to get her rifle. Won't be to much longer until I am done.... Which makes me sad...

I have been thinking about Lilith or a Cross Roads Demon.

kenshin-chan64
03-17-2011, 03:07 AM
I just used LA and Ventura as examples of a situation that I at least notice here in SoCal. Where there is a big thriving city, there's always smaller towns around it with just as many people in it, that are not as well off. Because of that, thrift shops thrive and can be found everywhere.
I dont know what cities are like in the UK, but maybe if you tried searching in some of the surounding towns you might find more.

I just think it would a lot easier to find an overcoat, than to make one XD


And I've found and gotten a pattern that I like for a woman in white dress. I just need to chose a material I like and figure out make-up~

Avisu
03-17-2011, 12:04 PM
Today was actually my lucky day, Random urge to walk into a charity shop and I found the perfect coat for Cas XD i'm so happy. Just have to add a few buttons and take up the bottom of the coat, it comes down to my ankles haha i feel short.

Bit pricey but I had to get it XD

AHH I am so glad there's a SPN thread here <33 I hoped there would be.

I didn't wanna make a new post on the con thread and get shunned, but... Is anyone from this thread gonna be at Anime Boston? I might be doing Castiel and if anyone wants to meet up on Saturday or Sunday, I'd love to have some people to awesome it up with. <33

ALSO IS ANYONE GOING TO NJ SPN CON? I'm going be doing 63!Dean with 63!Cas and 63!Gabriel and a bigger group would be mad fun :D

05-13-2011, 12:23 PM
I've become a big Supernatural fan these past couple of months. I really love Dean but I think I could pull of Sam better as a crossplay. If I ever would cosplay SPN I'd probably use Sam's design from the anime. :D

Ooh, I like the vest idea, I wouldnt have thought of that~ But I guess the design all comes down to what you like to wear and what kind of look you're going for. You could oviously go simple and just have a woman's suit, pants and all, or a skirt of varying lenghts (the shorter the skirt, the sexyer the look). For example, I personaly hate wearing skirts, so I would go with pants (damn you Amy! XD )
I also think that maybe a jacket with short cap or puffy sleeves would look pretty cute :3

So yeah I dont know, it depends if you want a sexy Cas or an exact parallel Cas. I cant wait to see what you pull together! :)

i'm sorry i thought i had to say this though because you mention Eve. But when they said the mother of all I seriously thought that Lady Gaga might do a cameo.

while i can't really help with the prop department without some real looking. (although i will when i have more time!) I can help with blood spatters!

get some fake blood and a paint brush. (i would suggest some gloves as well unless you want red hands) and getting the blood on the bristles flick them onto the apron. or you can fling blood on it as well with your hands. if you wanted to you can go so far as to put it on and wipe your 'bloody' hands on it as if wiping your hands clean. and he's also got black smugs as well... hmmm.... you could use black paint for that. or even a darker gray.

I wish we could do a Cas and Crowley group together! as annoyed as I was that Cas had lied about teaming up with Crowley and pretty much the last 3 or so episodes I loved their scenes together. XD Crowley is hilarious.

hey, all! I've been lurking on the forum without an account for a while and enjoying the pics, but I finally got around to registering now that I have something to post.

Moonflower: awesome, awesome costumes! I have started to see more femme Castiels pop up, and I enjoy seeing everyone's spin on them. I really like your scarf in place of the tie. :) Also, I think I may have run into you at Gally this past year? I was one of the bajillion femme fives on the loose.

Farfri: Can't wait to see how your Crowley costume turns out! I love the character to bits.

I'm planning on doing a femme!Cas for... something. I don't have any definite con plans in the future, but if nothing else, I've made a very, very early start on my Halloween costume. I ordered a wig and it seems to work pretty well, but it has this strange mesh thing below the hairline I haven't figured out what to do with yet. So feel free to ignore the awkward line on my head.

Pics! Sorry in advance for the crappy cell phone quality of these.

I have the rest of the costume more or less pieced together, but it's not quite in presentable form yet. Once I do that, I'll make a point to put up more pictures of a significantly better quality.

And yes!! I was there, so possibly! hello!!

So, I went to a Salute to Supernatural Con this weekend (It was so much fun!) and I finally got to wear a few of my costumes. I got to wear Jess (Nurse outfit), Crossroad Demon, and a Fem-Dean. I should be getting pictures up tomorrow. (Its been a long week, and a lot of pictures to go through) I am so excited. Now just to get some pictures of Jo (Everyone loves a Clown) and Jess (Smurf PJs).

Also! If you have a Creations Salute to Supernatural near you I suggest you go if you can. It is EPIC. I got to meet sooooo many people (Including Misha and Jared, and depending Jensen goes too)

Another also... Everyone looks so good! Whether you are done or just putting it together soon, it all looks awesome!!! <3

It's pretty much done. Just some small details required, like the correct color tie, some blood spatter and blue contact lenses.

I'm so happy. This was totally done on a whim.

You can find lots of clothes all the guys wear at jcpenney. (that's, oddly enough, where Misha said the original trenchcoat came from.) I think that's where the wardrobe dept shops.

the only thing I haven't been able to find was Dean's leather jacket, but that's a one of a kind anyway.
I'm really excited to see your lucifer makeup! I watched some makeup tutorials for zombie makeup and things but i think it'd be really hard for normal skin color and red underneathe.
good luck!

It's been a few months since I have popped onto this thread. I hope everyone had great holidays and A happy New Year.

As always, you guys are really rocking the costumes! Love it!

So in the new year I hope to have a few new costumes be completed. I am mostly done with Sarah Blake (Season 1: Provenance), just need to find her Jacket, and then I really want to get done Lilith (White Dress) for whatever Salute I hope to be going to this year.

Dude, if you're pocket Cas, I'm like... thimble sized Cas.

Anyways, since my last post I have:

1. Finished my Castiel costume (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3114678/) and worn it to a con (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3127812/) with a decent sized group.

2. Pulled together a few various Dean outfits and worn them around my bedroom. (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3140834/)

3. Made the most awesome assembly of items in a single ebay shopping cart (http://27.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyi1fdIWL71r5i2x0o1_500.jpg) I have yet to see in order to be the spitting image of a substitute gym coach.

So yeah... I really am excited about Dean from After School Special. Thoroughly expecting to recognized by no one, but that's okay. I'll have tight red shorts and knee high socks. My life will be complete.

Hey guys. I am thinking of going to the Vancouver supernatural con and looking for some cosplay ideas.

I went through the outfits people have done, and it tends to be Dean/Sam/Ruby/Crowley/etc. so Demon/Angel/Human who usually appear pretty human-ish...

For me, part of what makes the show cool is all the monsters and creatures. Plus I prefer to do things nobody else has done. Was a bit disappointed with so many creatures on the show not to see anybody taking a shot at them. I have a bit of experience with SFX Makeup (ie: my Two Face or Zombie outfits), and am always wiling to learn more.

That being said, the show has an endless beastology of creatures. Any suggestions on what are the most iconic creatures, and the ones I could best pull off? I'm male, 5'8ish, normal build.

I cosplay Castiel, and I saw a Dean at A-Kon, so walked up to him and stood behind him. When he turned around we were almost touching noses. I was just staring at him, trying not to laugh. And he was totally in character! For the rest of the day we were hanging out with a Sam, Gabriel, and Bobby. It was really fun, and we're planning on meeting up again at San Japan!
I almost scared myself when I looked in the mirror after putting in my contacts. I have dark brown eyes and these blue contacts I bought from pinkyparadise made them REALLY blue. And they were comfortable. So worth the amount I payed. (30+5 ship.)

Dude, you're going to be at San Japan? Awesome sauce, I'm being Cas on most of Saturday (except for when I have to be the Tenth Doctor for panels and such), and Dean all of Sunday.

I was thinking of planning some sort of meetup, but it's hard to when the only response you seem to be getting on the con forums are crickets...

Crossposting for maximum SOS.

So, I'm trying to cosplay Bela Talbot, but am having the worst time finding a wig for her. She has kind of a ashy light-medium brown shade of hair. The problem is, I just cannot find a wig of appropriate style in a colour that doesn't look flat or synthetic, like a lot of wigs intended for anime/video game cosplay. IE, the colour is way too warm, or has no tones or highlights.

I've checked Amphigory,and kind of like their 'touchable tease' forever young wig, but they don't have the colour available I'm looking for. I have minimal styling skill and would need to find someone else to do any cutting for me, so I'm trying to find something as close style wise as possible.(I'm doing it ala Bad Day at Black Rock graveyard scene) Also my budget is limited. Since all wigs are a tiny bit of a gamble, I'm really looking for not more than $45 on the wig, including shipping. Help?

I'm also considerably paler than Lauren Cohen, so I'm afraid even most medium browns will read more as brunette on me.

Just thought I'd jump into this thread. -super late to the fandom-

I'm hoping my friend and I will be cosplaying either Dean&Sam or Dean&Castiel (depending on who she chooses when she watches more).

Unfortunately, we're not going to be able to cut our hair like them, so I'm in need of wig recommendations for the trio!

Dean is really hard to get a wig for. Jensen Ackles's hair is so short that his scalp is exposed in most places, so really I don't know what to tell you. I guess you could use either a Roni or (though I hesitate to recommend a wig seller I've never bought from) Super Short from the wig store here on Coscom and cut the top down. Maybe go for Dean's earlier season hairstyle where his hair was a little bit longer? It's still really hard to achieve with a wig though. If you do end up using Roni, 24BT/18 would probably be the best color to use.

Castiel and Sam, however, I can tell you exactly which wigs are best to use.

Cas, Roni (http://amphigory.com/wigs_roni.html) is your best option, the hair is even the slightest bit wavy on the sides like Misha's. The top needs to be trimmed up a bit, but this is the same wig I use, so it definitely works. Depending on your skin tone, 2 or 4 are the best colors.

Sam, I actually use a different wig for than the one that I'm about to recommend, but I really don't like mine and I've actually been wanting to replace it. One of my good friends who is an awesome Sam cosplayer uses this wig, and it really looks great. It's Lulu (http://arda-wigs.com/collections/lulu)by Arda-Wigs. The perfect color (Spanish Brown) is unfortunately out of stock, but you could easily get away with Dark Brown, or get a wig in a lighter shade (like Sandy Brown or Warm Light Brown) and dye it to the right color.

You... are... A GOD. <3 Thank you! I had one idea for Dean's hair, but Amphigory took it down just recently (they always take down the wigs I need right before I need them!) and I don't even know the name of the wig, and it's tough looking for it. Grrrr, real person short hair is so difficult! I was thinking about getting a super short wig and then just kinda spiking the hair towards the front. Yes, it won't be accurately short, but that's the price I'm gonna pay for keeping my hair.

Also, I've already taken a great liking to gun shopping. There are so many toy guns that could work, and some beautiful person has set up this website (http://www.freewebs.com/spnweapons/index.html) that names a lot of the weapons from SPN. Shotguns & glocks & knives, oh my!

Thank you, love. :heart: I ended up ordering the darker one since I know that the lighter one is actually pretty darn red. I wanted to order an Anytime Hawk wig from Amphigory, but they don't sell them anymore, and neither does the original company. Shammmeeeeee. We'll have to see how it goes. I may or may not have bought a Castiel trench today too... so I'll be searching for his wig too~!

I'm also in the market for Dean's green/olive cargo jacket. I found one in black, but... nope.

http://hells-half-acre.livejournal.com/307696.html has ID'd it.

"Dk. blue fine diagonal self-stripe, broken down 'Calvin Klein'"

The issue with his tie is that the costume department bought it thinking he wasn't going to be around for more than a few episodes, so now they have to get it specially made (for a LOT of money) so I don't think you'd be able to find it.

I'm a little late to the Supernatural game, but I started the series about a month ago and have flown through it! I'm already on season 7! I would really love to cosplay Jo Harvelle. Partially because she's one of my favourite characters in the show, partially because she's a complete and total badass, partially because it's a fairly simple cosplay, and partially because her hair is similar to another character's I'm cosplaying and I never miss a chance to double up on wigs. :)

Speaking of Jo, does anyone have any suggestions for type of boots to get for her? I'm thinking I'll mostly be doing her black tank top look from 'Everybody Loves a Clown', but I can't see what type of boots she's wearing, and I'm not good at identifying boots, anyways. XP

Imho, I think Rocky is too short for Cas. It's super layered and the layers are short. It seems that the general consensus is that the Roni from Amphigory is the best bet, though for my Castiel cosplay, I purchased a dark brown boycut short from EpicCosplay I intend to dye a little darker with sharpies.

However, if you're set on an Arda wig, I suggest the Jett or Hansel with some trimming and styling. Or some trimming and styling on a Five Wits short black wig.

I've actually asked this question and gotten a lovely answer, and I've ordered the wig but I sent it home rather than to university because I didn't need it quite yet, so I can't help you with what it looks like. Yazoo_the_Kazoo recommends the Lulu from Arda in Spanish Brown. (http://www.cosplay.com/showpost.php?p=4452022&postcount=119) I have Lulus in different colors and it's actually a great wig that only needs a bit of styling. If you part it down the center, it doesn't show 'like woah here's the net!' so it's quite nice.

But if you feel that the wig would be too long for you and you don't want to cut it, since you're aiming for 4-5 Sam, the hansel or the derek are really nice wigs that you can comb and get to lie flatter, and the layers would already be there. Be sure to look at as many customer photos as you can to see what people have done with theirs and what length and style you like the most.

First off, finished Coach!Dean:

Added 2014!Cas to my Castiel rep:

As well as Meta!Misha:

And Leviathan!Cas, which I wore for karaoke at the Supernatural con in Chicago, but sadly only a few pictures exist of. It was a killer makeup job, I swear:

Also planning to work on Dean's LARP outfit from LARP and the IT Girl (wig, face paint and all), possibly to make some wings for Cas, and maybe pull together Anna Milton... I've kind of gotten into the SPN cosplay in a big way, you could say. ^^;

And it's been over a year! Usually I move on by now!

Omg, I recognize you from tumblr. You are too precious. What a great Kevin! We need more Kevins! /spreads kevin love

So my friend and I decided just today that we're going to do fem! Sam and Dean cosplays for Tekkoshocon, which is in less than two weeks. XD This was not in the original game plan, but we wanted to do matching/group outfits and her Doctor Who one isn't going to be done on time.

We're not going for super!fem but just like...if they were still badass hunters, just women.
I'm being Sam, and I have a blue and white plaid shirt but I'm still looking for a jacket. Then I'm going to wear jeans and boots, plus the anti possession tattoo and ruby's knife. To fem it up a bit I was going to do some neutral-ish makeup (browns and greens) and maybe get boots that have a bit of a heel on them. Luckily, I already have season 8 Sammy hair so I won't need a wig.
My friend who's being Dean is deciding between a black jacket and a plaid one, I don't know other details except that she's going to do red nails I think.

Basically, any suggestions for us, especially throwing these together so last minute? ^^;

I'm planning on doing a shoot with my (very tall) friend as Sam/Lucifer and myself as Adam/Michael over at a graveyard behind my house (it's an empty lot and we're going to be respectful, no worries)

I'm trying to figure out the contouring though. I know my face is already pretty similar to Adam's (YAY) but I can't tell what I should shade/highlight. Can I get some suggestions? I know my bangs are a bit too long and my eyebrows need to be done- any other suggestions?

Anyone going to A-Kon is their SPN cosplays? And seriously Kazoo, your cosplays are AMAZING. I am in awe.

I'll prob be walking around totally unrecognized as Adam Milligan... I'm deciding if I should have some sort of sign on my back or something about "you all forgot about me" or the infamous "still in the Cage" or something so I don't get confused with Dean...

I'm not buying a badge though, so I won't be able to do much- I'd love to hang out and do a shoot with someone or at least meet other fans from Dallas as I just got into the fandom a month ago and don't know anyone in my area I can fangirl with.

Just a lurker here, that is trying to get some advice :3

Anyone have any suggestions for a wig for Gabriel? I think I'm set with my Cas wig and costumes are actually pretty much done. I'm planning on doing a Casa Erotica Gabriel, mustache and all ;)

Any suggestions on a wig for him, would be amazing!

You're right, you do have a very similar face to Jake Abel! I'd say start with standard contouring. Your temples and underneath the cheekbones, mainly, to make your face a bit more angular/ thinner. Then, your nose as well, to make it narrower. Here's a link to a crossplay makeup tutorial I made a few years ago, it gives you a better idea of what I'm trying to explain:

For Gabriel, if you don't mind spending the money on it, a lace front wig like Cady (http://arda-wigs.com/products/cady) from Arda in would be ideal, because Gabriel generally has his hair pushed back. With some trimming, you could also probably use Ada (http://www.amphigory.com/wigs_ada.html) from Amphigory. Also, search ebay. The options are limitless there.

Thank you. Hopefully I'll be able to have someone help me style them as well. My sister should be able to. I'm trying not to spend too much on wigs, since I don't go to too many cons. This will be my first one, who knows I might become addicted XD

Anyone here going to A-Kon? Also, I need a bit of help on ideas for Gabriel. I'm making some "angel grace" for him and don't know what colors or charms to place on it. Anyone got ideas?

Nurikowolf
05-10-2013, 07:31 PM
Not sure, perhaps golds and earthier tones for him. If you wanted to be cheeky, perhaps some fruity candy colors thrown in? I'm not sure how you're going about it. Oh! Do you have suggestions on what kind of wig I should use, since you are going as Gabriel.

I am going to A-Kon! I'm being Castiel for a day, I believe. My girlfriend is being Morrigan and she wants to take spoof pictures based on the "Morrigan Does a Thing" video.

I feel like since Gabriel's eyes are described as the same color as "whiskey with sunlight shining through it" it would be cool if you could make the grace that same shade of amber.

Canonically, grace looks like this:
http://www.tvchitchat.net/images/h391.jpg
And doesn't seem to have any charms or adornments. In fact, it almost looks as if its casing was created organically when it hurtled to earth (in my opinion). So I don't know if you really want to add many charms or anything. If it were me, I'd keep it simple.

soraKHdemyx
05-10-2013, 08:04 PM
So maybe make some light brown/golden putty, with bits of blue, green, yellow, and red specks? And yeah, some charms wouldn't work that well...except that I'm planning on giving it away as a gift necklace.
I'll be Gabriel most of Friday, since my Supernatural panel is that night.

And my Gabe wig was given to me from a friend though I styled it like this (looks better when it's actually on):

Hi everyone I plan on cosplaying female Cas. I would like to have his angel blade commissioned. Is there anyone that has made the blade before that i could commission?

Search Etsy. I seem to remember someone on there who made replicas. A quick search turned up this:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/150680424/custom-unfinished-supernatural-cosplay?
Which may be perfect for your uses, or you might not want to have to finish it yourself. I dunno. Your call. I've only ever borrowed my friend Amy's for pictures, I don't have my own.

AND NOW...
(drumroll please)
I have decided to cosplay as Abaddon because she is my queen and I love her.
http://www.cosplay.com/costume/460811/
I should have the costume finished by the end of the week to take some pictures of.

Yay! Supernatural cosplayers! So I'm working on a Sam Winchester Cosplay for debut at Otakon 2013 and from research, I'm guessing that the only way to really determine what you're cosplay from is by key details. [Except everyone seems to know Cas. He stands out well] I mean, just going as Sam is hard because I have no Dean, and I'm just someone walking around in a plaid shirt, stubble, and a knife. That's probably what'll give it away though.

Yazoo I ADORE YOUR ABBADON! I might just have to add her to my cospplay list because DAYUM I love her so much. Though I have to choose between her Devil casual outfit and her dress!

I almost wore Cas to the Winchester Mystery house in California but it was way too hot to go in cosplay.

Also... wings. I need wings. Where are all my winged-cosplayers at? (:

I'm actually working on wings for a Castiel costume using head lamps and cut-outs to create a shadow effect behind me. (I'll be inside the entire time at the location I'll be wearing the costume). Here's a really crappy pic of the last place I left off. (just a paper cut out and testing the lamp distance from the wall, I rotated the pic to match the bad angle I was holding the set-up at). http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v95/wolfchild59/Stuff/photo2_zps540c517f.jpg

And I also wouldn't recommend that Angel Blade shown above from that Etsy store unless you are very experienced with working with resin. I ordered one and have spent the last week or so getting it usable, with probably at least another week's worth of work on it. When it arrived, it looked like it came straight out of a dying silicone mold. Huge chunks of resin where there shouldn't be anything, bits of the silicone mold trapped in the resin, and air bubbles and dimples up and down the whole thing. Plus, I spent all last night making the handle and hilt area round again because it looks like they molded it in a one piece mold and squeezed it out of shape in the middle because the top of the handle and hilt were basically a triangle.

It was a good base to start from after I cleaned all of the initial mold flaws up, but I've had to add a lot of apoxie to get it usable and I'm redoing the entire blade tomorrow. I'll post some pics of that once I get it done.


It's actually a whole group of us going. I'm Castiel, two friends are Sam and Dean and my husband is going to be Bobby. But I'm having a heck of a time finding an accurate Bobby vest or even a pattern for one!

I love Supernatural cosplay. I feel like I do it every day of my life - I believe in layering and I own a lot of plaid, and I have Dean's ring which I wear pretty regularly. I've considered maybe cosplaying as Ruby, the Gen version. I've got similar eyebrows to her, which are a pretty prominent part of her face, I think.

09-25-2013, 08:32 PM
Alright~ So next project instead of Samandriel is going to be working on Kai-art (http://kai-art.tumblr.com/)'s Final Fantasy Supernatural AU! Well, at the very least Cas.

This little image right here (http://24.media.tumblr.com/63356b0c3cd9f91d79268fd73866c770/tumblr_mteluvlv9m1rnn2o4o1_1280.jpg)

I'll probably do Sam in the future though. I'm planning to probably debut this at Anime Expo if I go but if I finish it before hand, then I'll do it to another con before that. But yeah! Hopefully I can get someone to do Dean and Sam when I do this though!

Maybe this is the wrong thread but I figured it be best to ask people of the fandom. I've been wanting to cosplay son since season 4, and now it's season 9 ( procrastination babe) buuut I've got no clue who I could pull off, if anyone's willing to give out some tips I can post a picture of myself, if not sorry for spamming the read.....

Yay more Supernatural cosplayers! So far I've done:

Sam Winchester (genderbent)
Impala (1960's design)
Abaddon
Leviathan Castiel
Castiel (with 12' mechanical wings!)


And future plans are:

Dean Winchester (normal and Gym teacher)
Original design Trueform Leviathan
Ezekiel (again with mechanical wings)


So glad that there's more of us around! :bigtu:

Im super excited for the gym shorts! Its for an event we run in Vancouver cons called The Walkoff, and the plan is to have a full, everyday Dean outfit overtop and have it strip rigged so that I can strip down to the gym shorts on stage. Its going to be a challenge and I'm so excited for it!

They took me 3 months, however the majority of the time was spent dealing with feathers, either dyeing them or attaching them to the wing frame. Ezekiels wings I could probably get done in a couple of weeks!

There's pics on my account if you'd like to see! :) and well, according to the cast and crew they are very impressive! But Im just proud of the work I did and the fact that I did it!

While it's not technically cosplay, I've been working up some ideas for Supernatural themed corsets since I will be making and selling my corsets at a convention next year. I have a few ideas involving plaid, the demon trap, the angel banishing sigil, and the Winchesters' tattoo. I'm also working up a whole look for a Castiel based corset that I hope to have done soon. And while it's the plan to put it up for sale, if it turns out like I see it in my mind, it's going to be hard to part with it.

Hey guys. So I'm planing on cosplaying as young Mary Winchester and I'm having trouble finding this shirt (http://www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/data/2410/Supern63MattCohen.jpg) or something similar to it. I'm still looking but I figured I would as for some help.

I already have this shirt (http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/92/23/48/9223489025f7f342c2752544d9a15e9a.jpg) but I would like to have another outfit for her just incase.

Getting a bit close to finishing my male human!impala cosplay. Waiting on my pants and a few things to come in and need to style the wig that I got for it. But it's coming alone pretty well.
