Costume Information

Description
With my previous outfit not exactly pub/bar friendly, for this Halloween I decided to make something that would be easy to wear and not prone to breaking in a drunk people environment. The new Constantine series looks awesome, and the costume so easy to make for cheap.

Thank you. I was worried I'd be mistaken for an attempt at Castiel on the day, but thankfully everyone who approached me knew exactly who I was.

Journal

Finito (Posted 29th August 2014)

And with that the costume is complete!

Hair (Posted 29th August 2014)

And the signature hair. I went to a barbers, but I had to add in the back and sides as they hadn't taken the bleach far down enough. Not bad for my first ever dye.

Business Cards (Posted 28th August 2014)

I made more than enough. Lifehack: watercolour paper makes for good business card material.

Customised Trench Coat (Posted 25th August 2014)

The coat arrived and fits me perfectly. The colour is a little darker, but aside from that, it's a dead ringer for John's coat. I removed the flaps on the chest and the buckle on the collar.

Trench Coat (Posted 6th August 2014)

I found a single breasted 3/4 length coat in the same fitting as John's Burberry trench for a fraction of the price. It's Asian sizing though, so hopefully a medium will fit me when it comes.

Tools Of The Trade (Posted 6th August 2014)

So I already own some rosary beads that we were given way back in high school, and rather than buy a crucifix, I thought I'd save some pennies and make one myself out of offcuts of skirting board lying around in the garage.

Shoes (Posted 5th August 2014)

A cheap pair of black boots via eBay. Originally, I bought some more formal shoes, but after seeing a behind the scenes photo, I realised he wears ankle boots.

Tie (Posted 22nd July 2014)

I was looking for a burgundy coloured slim tie. Next came to the rescue with a sale on and I left with a bundle pack of a burgundy and navy tie and a pocket square I'll likely never use.

Stuff I Own Already (Posted 19th July 2014)

- H&M white slim fit shirt
- Next black slim fit suit trousers
- Primark fake leather black belt
- Wooden rosary beads
- Zippo lighter
