Last call for anyone who wants to thank the Supernatural crew. Final comments are being gathered for “A Thank You To The Supernatural Crew” book by The Winchester Family Business (from Alice – and most importantly Yirabah).
Here’s the link to the original article explaining this fan project:
In case somebody missed it for any number of reasons or you are still thinking about it, if you want to thank the Supernatural crew for anything and would like to have it included in that book you should post a comment soon.
If you don’t know why or for what we should be thankful for you might want to check out Tim the enchanters second comment on the original article.

This definitely ISN’T for Yirabah’s book but I don’t know where else to put it (Sorry Yirabah!). I got to thinking while typing up the reply; how necessary are some of the departments in Supernatural? I mean hair, make-up and costuming, what’s that about? JA and JP are good looking guys, they don’t need make-up and hair is y’know, hair. It just sits there! Plus, unless you’re a supermodel, clothes are just clothes. Once they keep you under wraps, it’s all good (or bad, depending on your point of view).
I was thinking that if they spent less on these areas they could spend more on the special effects department because sorry show, some of your monsters are kinda lacking in the scary.
Oooooh, I just soiled myself with the fear of that scary monster (rolls eyes). Personally, I find this much scarier….
What? That’s a Sharpie monster. Sharpies are way scary because they’re permanent, ok. PERMANENT! Not even dry cleaning will get the stains out.
And finally, meet the original fairy in ‘Clap Your Hands If You Believe’:
Unfortunately, I believe they ran into difficulties getting JP to wear wings and a flying harness and apparently, he had issues showing his nipples (strange that). Plus, they couldn’t get him to squeeze into a microwave so hello tiny dot of light (on whom the nipples could clearly be seen)…..
Also, spending less on hair, make up and costuming would mean there might be enough money in the budget for some of this…
….but that’s a story for another day. (Hey, you could totally make a story out of that. Ok, fine, I could totally make a story out of that!)
However, on closer inspection I found some evidence that hair, makeup and costuming are probably the most important departments on the show because honestly, those two fecking edjits should never be allowed to go at it on their own. I mean, could you imagine Lucifer striking fear into the hearts of billions if he showed up looking like this?
Only way you’d fall prostrate before that guy would be if you keeled over laughing. Also, the first thing Michael would be doing would be getting Dean to a barber pronto, because how could you take an archangel seriously if he looked like this?
And stop bragging, you arse, nobody likes a show off.
Secondly, JP; yes dude, you do have lovely eyes and yes, eyeliner is generally used to accentuate same but what the hell is this? Make up doth not the Emo, okay.
You’re emo because everyone you love dies, because Lucifer got on up in ya, because you shagged a demon while betraying your brother and because you’re in hell, not because you put on enough slap to make Elvira jealous. Seriously, you’ve been on TV since you were knee high to a gigantic grasshopper but you still haven’t learnt that less is more?
It’s also not a simple case of letting the boys just wearing whatever is clean either because if JA were to pick his own wardrobe, there’s a danger he’d come up with this….
Personally, I think it’d be kinda hard fighting the forces of evil wearing nowt but the American flag, but if JA is willing to try it then I’m willing to watch it. (And kudos to you on your show of patriotism.)
Little less complicated with JP because if he got to pick his own wardrobe, this is probably what he’d come up with.
Also that parrot/turkey/chicken/ pheasant/guinea fowl/whatever the fuck it is, is the reason the boys aren’t allowed to do their own props. Plus, I’m sure it’s the reason they don’t get a say in who plays their love interests either.
So my appreciation for those working in hair, make up and costuming has increased ten thousand fold because their vision and hard work gives us this:
Shit, sorry, I meant this! (Cop yourself on, Tim)
So, to everyone involved in hair, make-up and costuming, good cess to ya cos you guys have a loooootttt of work to do!
And here is the a little update from me again.
Tim the enchanter was reading and making some corrections if necessary on the stories. I then typed them up in that program I got to create that book. (Only have like 2 more stories to go). Once I’ve done that. I will mail the pages back to Tim to have her check if I made any typos. After that it will go into print.
I would have loved to have it ready for VanCon but unfortunately live got in the way and I was to tired at times and wasn’t able to concentrate on what I typed (you wouldn’t believe the mistakes I came up with then) plus during that time I got easily distracted while searching for pictures. I found a whole lot of interesting sites connected somehow to Supernatural and I simply had to read them. For example this one: the story on the real Benders (www.prairieghosts.com/bender.html) and if you click on the link on the bottom of that page you will find the story of the murder castle and H.H.Holmes. Distractions I am telling you and then there were of course all the news and vids coming out of Comic Con and Boston Con which I had to read and watch. Sorry.
A little information on the things I can’t do in that program. Unfortunately that is a whole lot. I am not able to do any smilies. It’s also impossible to change the letters for just one word into cursive or bold for example. It’s either the whole paragraph or nothing. Sorry.
For anyone who still wants to leave a Thank You note: it would be nice if you would include the country you are living in.
For the following thank you notes I am missing the country:
And then there are things I am looking for. I would love to include a few pictures of the crew members. Unfortunately, on my searches I haven’t been able to come up with a lot. So if anybody finds some. Please post the link and include what kind of job they are occupying on Supernatural. Thank you.
Elle2, I would love to include your favourite behind the scene pic, of course with a note who shot that pic. So if you could come up with something I would include it in your story.
I was trying to add a picture to each thank you note that would fit the comment. But in case anyone has a certain picture in mind which they would like to be included in their little note please post it here.
And here are a couple more examples:
