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 from Arda in would be ideal, because Gabriel generally has his hair pushed back. With some trimming, you could also probably use Ada 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?

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:

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.

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):





(Sorry the images are HUGE)

And of course I take the bobby pins out when I put it on.

Search Etsy. I seem to remember someone on there who made replicas. A quick search turned up this:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/15068042...tural-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).

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.

Alright~ So next project instead of Samandriel is going to be working on Kai-art's Final Fantasy Supernatural AU! Well, at the very least Cas.

This little image right here

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!
