John Constantine (TV Series) - Constantine

Information

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.

Thanks! I'm hoping I can do him justice.

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.

Or is it?

After wearing the coat a few times and waiting around for MCM May Comic Con, I realised it was far too flimsy for the gabardine used in the original Burberry, so I interfaced the front, the facings, the sleeve cuffs and the collar with multiple layers to get the thicknesses I wanted. I also made my own shoulder pads which I sewed in place along with sleeve heads and an assortment of other dressmaking things I'd only just learned about. I'm not the best sewer, so it was very enlightening experience. I also unpicked the shoulder epaulet and sewed them more accurately and even added that thing on the back of his collar out of scrap material left over from when I removed the gun flaps. I think this is as good as it's going to get. Still needs an iron once in a while, but it holds it's shape a lot better than before.

In addition, I bought some brown contacts. I avoided circle lenses and went with as small an iris I could get, although they do still look slightly off in pictures.

Finito

And with that the costume is complete!

Hair

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

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

Customised Trench Coat

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

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

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

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

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.
