|Have no idea when I'll do it, but I've always secretly wanted to cosplay Ruby ever since she made her debut on Supernatural way back in season 3. |
And in my mind I think Kate Cassidy's version of Ruby is the best version. ^_^!
I'll probably do this for something relatively small instead of a big event. Maybe for something like the next Collectormania or something.
When I do cosplay her, it will be her red biker jacket outfit when she meets Bobby for the first time, and Bobby shoots her with the colt that Bobby had to recreate. The out I'm on about is in the second clip in the video I have posted up on here, as it's the only way I could get a reference image of this outfit!
update: tempted to do this for LFCC but its only a temptation at the moment...
27/04/2011: Temptation got the better of me! I'm definitely doing this now for LFCC! So moving to in progress as I'm bidding on the jacket and already have jeans and boots at home- okay so it's a kind of closet cosplay but hey! It's supernatural! XD
UPDATE 19TH MAY: Cant find a faux leather red jacket (see journal) so wont be doing Ruby at LFCC by the looks of it.
UPDATE 12TH JULY 2012: Found a red jacket aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages ago, so I've decided to put this into 'in progress' think I'll have this as back up plan for October's Entertainment Media Show if I get to go, and MIGHT wear it to Asylum 9 if I can afford to go that too
UPDATE 27TH JULY: Gonna get it finished for Asylum 9 now I think for the evenings as I only need a wig now to have it complete... and I can re wear the wig for my girl thor cosplay when I eventually get round to that also. XP also gonna be putting together femme castiel for Asylum 9

t shirt (Posted 12th July 2012)
Looking at the ref pics again as I'm bored, and really studying the tshirt she wears (keeping in mind I took the photo on my phone straight off the tv and colors are brightened) it looks like a plain black tshirt with a sort of crumpled look to it.
Which is fantastic for me, as I have a tshirt JUST like it in my wardrobe I can use! So I basically have the outfit already here at home. I have the jacket, the top and jeans like hers. I can use my new rock boots for this to give me some extra height and so my trousers dont drag along the floor. They're plain toed and the metal heel will be hidden by my trousers.
All I have to do now to make this complete is get the blonde wig and make her knife. I might make some hex bags and find my old duffel bag too, for something a bit extra. I wanna get some black contact lenses too, and though they wont be full eye lenses, they will be black, so I can look remotely demonic haha!
My friend AB wants me to bring this to the States in February for photos also, so this will be done for fun and as a back up cosplay thats casual for events when I'm too lazy or low on funds to do something big
Red jacket and more (Posted 14th June 2012)
I HAVE HAD SUCCESS!!!! Mom found a red biker jacket in a charity store the other day and bought it today, she'll be using it as a water proof jacket when I'm not cosplaying Ruby and I can use it for Ruby.
It's not 100% accurate as it doesn't have the pockets like hers does, but its damn close and the perfect shade of red. I'm thinking if I dont get the wig I put up, I might try and straighten out the blonde wig I currently have and use that, but it all depends on when I actually do Ruby in he first place, as I want to cosplay her within a Supernatural group, as I know one of my friend's wants to cosplay Castiel again, or Dean i think.
So yeah... this will be put on hold until I get a group together so she's recognisable with the rest of the gang! XP!
Just a list of possible character to make the group extra awesome
Jacket (Posted 29th April 2011)
So i was stupid and forgot about the jacket I was watching on ebay, and totally missed the bidding time XD whoops!
I've messaged the seller though as there were no bids on it, and waiting to see if she will still sell it to me. Fingers crossed... if not it's going back to my original idea of doing mermaid Ariel XD
So jacket got put back up on ebay but I was never told so I didnt know and it got sold to someone else.
Unless I find a dirt cheap faux leather red jacket this wont be happening and i'll be going back to doing mermaid ariel- god knows how I'll get around it XD
Temptation (Posted 25th April 2011)
I am stupidly tempted to cosplay her at LFCC on the sunday instead of doing another Ariel costume all because of Mark Sheppard attending the event and his character wasn't even in the season this Ruby was XD!!!
All I'd have to do is get a toy knife to make into hers, a faux leather red jacket and I have black trousers at home and the type of boots she wears... and I also have black t-shirts in my drawers until they're busting out everywhere XD So all I'd have to really fork out for is the blonde wig because I've seen a faux leather jacket on ebay that is going for 99p and only £3 postage... hmmm I have 2days to make a decision...
