View Full Version : New Cosplayer

This will be my first time Cosplaying, and I feel like I may need a bit of help. I have a family member that has been doing this for a few years now, so I am getting some help but I am really having a hard time finding wigs.

I'm going to be going to PAX Prime in Seattle, WA at the end of August and I'm kinda worrying a bit on where to get my costumes and wigs, and well a little bit self conscious about it all too D:

So, two out of four days is what I'm aiming for and I'm working on trying to finish them both.

Both are from Supernatural:

Castiel: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b129/Nurikowolf/Castiel_807_zpsae23d3b1.jpg

and Gabriel from Casa Erotica:


Any help would be great. I'm fairly sure costumes won't be terribly hard to find but suggestions for those would be great too.

Hi! Well for Castiel, underneath the trench coat should be fairly easy to find - hopefully you have some in your closet or some to borrow from others! black pants, button up shirt, blue tie. If you don't own it, try not to spend too much money on it -maybe like Walmart, Target, etc.

The trench coat, however, this is what I found, if you aren't strapped for cash:

A lot of other cosplay site sell this coat too, including cosplaysky, and even Ebay.

not sure on Gabriel but it looks like a white shirt and a red vest of some sort - if there was a full body shot maybe we can help a little better?

Hope the Castiel info was ok!

<3333 Castiel! Try searching your local thrift store for his clothes, I have found so many awesome trench coats for 4-7 bucks there ^_^

And since these are both relatively simple characters, the devil is in the details (harhar I'm so punny). It's always awesome when you add that 'extra' touch like wearing your tie loose and backwards, or bringing some sort of prop with you, or making a pair of wings!

Also, for Cas, try shading your eyes and getting a bit of 5 o'clock shadow :>

Thank you both for your help. I'm checking out the thread now, but I think my biggest challenge is finding a couple of wigs. I've never worn one before, and I don't know where to look first D:
