HEY! DC/MD/Virginia crowd! Guess what…
If you’ve got nothing to do Nov 1st, there is going to be a really funky superhero themed halloween party over at City Tap House DC. ( located at 901 9th Street)
There are some pretty sweet prizes for a costume contest (including a $1,000 cash prize for 1st place) and a killer open bar that will donate a portion of the proceeds to Foundation 4 Heroes. (woo! charity!)
more info on the event can be found HERE on Tap House’s Website.
And if all that didn’t sell you, chances are I will be there, partying hard with my extended Tap House family. :D
Please bump this for me~<3
ooc: I’ve never really been one for perfection, but I’m charmed you think so. ^_^ thanks~!
ooc: Hi, there’s an FAQ page both here and on my Cecil page. It’s the same wig. either FAQ will work. the TUTORIAL link should also have turn around pictures of it.
Hey guys, a friend of mine is doing an anonymous survey for a paper she is writing on adhd. Its only 4 yes or no questions.. Could you please help her out?
ooc: this is like my favorite topic ever. Ok!
Body language: Lucifer is usually rather calm and purposeful. His movements all have intentions. He rarely moves to “react” to anything. He doesn’t fidget or get restless, but he does pace. He talks with his hands and tilts his head. He tends to turn his head before moving the rest of his body. For the most part, he presents himself as relaxed but powerful. When he is angry, he pulls his shoulders back.
fans often note how Hallucifer sits oddly in chairs. (regular lucifer doesn’t do this. He sits in a sort of upright relaxed pose, sometimes with his leg bent underneath him.
Lucifer’s facial expressions are very particular. He narrows his eyes a lot when trying to figure someone/something out. He looks like a pouting child more often than not. He “snarles” when disgusted.
Mostly study and imitate mark’s mannerisms
"You’re my true vessel, but not my only one. It’s a bloodline…
stretching back to Cain and Abel. It’s in your blood, your father’s blood, your family’s blood.” - Michael
Mary Winchester / Lucifer / Photographer
OOC: (you can delete this with reblogs) a little nod to one of my favorite headcanons… the “if michael favors the winchester blood line, which blood line do you think Lucifer favors?” headcanon. I did this to hurt you… Also, say hi to Kass ( innerprat), everyone! Ain’t she the cutest young!Mary? This is what we did at Nj con while everyone else was doing con-things.
ooc: I am actually a terrible person to ask about this. XD;; Um. I’ve only ever been in costume contests at supernatural conventions twice (and only won once), which are very different from regular convention costume contests. Im pretty sure the biggest point, however, is to be in character! When competing as a cosplayer, you’re trying to give 4 dimensional life to something that usually isn’t alive. Walk like them, talk like them, do something in character… idk.
I’ve talked with some others who have competed on occasion though and I think there’s a rule amongst regular cons that says that everything has to be made and not bought? (not sure about this. You should check with each convention individually for their rules and regulations for the contest)
As for SPN costume contests, they are a bit of a free for all. You line up and get introduced individually (or with your group) on stage with however many competitors they can line up there. The host consults the audience for the winner and then the winner stands aside while they proceed to get through the contestants in rounds. When they’ve gotten through the whole line, they line the winners back up and work down to the top three, then they award the third, second, and first place winners.
In dallas, they separated the castiel cosplayers from everyone else (unless a castiel cosplayer chose to compete in a group) because there are usually a LOT of castiel cosplayers. Cosplayers under the age of 14 also get their own category unless competing in a group.
The best I can tell, the winners of the spn costume contest are usually people who choose not-regularly-cosplayed characters… or ones who are extra cute or funny or really really well done. My first NJ con’s winners were 3rd: endverse destiel couple, 2nd: Death 1st: Becky
For Dallas con, the winners were 3rd: Samandriel, 2nd: A young male Sam cosplayer, 1st: My group, which consisted of Lucifer, Michael, Gabriel, and Chuck (god)
This year’s NJ con’s 1st place went to a Mr. Fizzles cosplayer.
You get something just for entering though so it’s worth it regardless!
You can see a video of our win HERE
Anyway, hope this helped.

ooc: unfortunately that rumor is untrue. I was in Dallas last year and NJ this year. I’m not in Dallas atm. Sorry! Have extra fun for me!
