|Gabriel is my favourite character. I loved him as the Trickster and I loved him as an archangel. Out of every fandom I have ever dedicated myself too, Gabriel is at the top of my favourite characters list. I absolutely love his personality and his antics on the show and he deserved more than the four episodes he got. After narrowing down my potential cosplays for Birmingham, Gabriel was an obvious choice really.|
I decided that I would make a female Gabriel rather than crossplay for numerous reasons (mostly because I cba with binding). There really isn't any point when I know for a fact that it'll only crush my chest yet not make a visible difference. That's lazy and I'm sorry if my lack of effort annoys anyone but at the end of the day it's about having fun and I can't do that if I'm uncomfortable. End of story.
The costume didn't require me making anything, I did edit several little bits of pieces, for example I did trim the wig a little but overall it was very easy. The one difficulty I had and am still having is lightening my eyebrows because they're very dark but I'm working on that and hope to have found a solution by the 23rd.
The black top I already had, same with the jeans and the shoes. The necklace was actually a birthday present. The jacket was £20 from ebay but worth it because I absolutely love it and the wig was also from ebay for just £8.
