Bobby Singer from Supernatural

Bobby Singer from Supernatural

Supernatural may be coming to a close but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep dressing like your favorite hunter. And Bobby Singer (played by Jim Beaver) is almost always at the top of fans’ Favorite Hunters list. He is the surrogate father that got the boys through more tough times than any two people really ought to have. And the literal end of the world came around – every time it came around – Bobby was there to help stop it.

Cosplaying as Bobby is fairly easy. You just need work boots, jeans, a t-shirt, a plaid flannel, and a trucker cap. The t-shirt should have some sort of graphic on it, likely from any number of small diners or gas stations where Bobby stopped while on a hunt. Things get a little tricky, though, when it comes to the condition of the clothes. On top of being a hunter Bobby is a mechanic. His clothes are work-worn and often oil stained, which will take some doing when you buy the clothes brand new. It’s worth it, though, to pull off the Bobby Singer look!

And of course what hunter would want to go out without their demon hunting knife? Just be sure it complies with the weapons policy of the convention you’re attending and the location it’s in. If it doesn’t opt for salt and demon traps instead!
