Supernatural: Gun continued.

   Good evening, dearies!! Welcome back. I'm on the topic of custom-making Dean's gun from Supernatural. Below is the picture I have of Dean's gun and below that you'll see the base I'm starting with. I've made some modifications already, to the grip, for example. The original has nice smooth ones made out of mother of pearl, where as the base has knurled grips.

Dean's primary gun.

The base I bought at a costume shop.

   I spent a lot of time sanding off the mold lines and some of the details of the lettering, since it's not the same gun as the one he has. I'll change it when i go to repaint it later. If any of you readers out there have any suggestions for places to buy them that sell actual copies of guns by type, I would love it. Simply repainting the same gun rather than trying to make one first the other would be excellent.

   I forgot to take pictures earlier of my progress with the grip, so I'll have to do it tomorrow. I'll probably edit this post then, or start a new one. Who knows. Good night!!

Supernatural: Cosplay costumes Complete!! (Almost...)

   With Halloween upon me I needed to finish our customers in case Huz wants to be Dean for Halloween. He might choose to be one of the Doctors but I'm not sure. I wanted to be ready, just in case. So I finally bought the last tow components I had been needing for Soul Survivor cosplay (Sam and Dean), and Lucifer!Sam for the cosplay contest on Saturday of the Con. !! 

   I'll be sharing pictures of the completed outfits shortly. I have to go steal the out of our bedroom closet to model them for you. 

Lucifer!Sam for the Cosplay contest on Saturday. I won't wear it the whole day, as I will die of heat stroke. But I'll wear it as long as I can after the Contest. I just got the shoes, shiny things they are, but I can't find anything like what I want for less, so the sparkly ones win. I'm only missing a rose bud which I will hopefully order when we get there, but maybe I'll buy a plastic one to take just in case I can't afford a real one, delivered to the hotel.

Dean's murder shirt, used best to my mind from Soul Survivor, 10x3. I didn't want to take the time to put on my boots, but I have them, so I'm all set. 

And Sam from Soul Survivor, with a very good shirt. The pattern and color and size is consistent, if not exactly exactly a match. Arm sling has more white details than Jared's, but what are you gonna do? The one like his was like $20, as opposed to this one which was only $10. Also holding my favorite, Ruby's knife Demon Slayer!! I love that knife.

   So, all in all, I'm ready. At least costume-wise. Three good costumes, and I'm sure I have nothing else to worry about. Right?  

   Alright, in all seriousness I do, in fact, have a ton to do so I'm going to go do it. Night night!!
