The Supernatural season 14 & prior wardrobe sale was on this weekend in Vancouver (if you are reading this when I posted it on July 7, 2019, it is still on today at the productions studio in South Burnaby till 5 PM).
For many fans, it was a chance to grab some things that they hoped someone on the show had worn, while for others, it was a chance to find great clothes at cheap prices. For a few others, it was just a chance to say they got to be in the studio where Supernatural filmed.
I went to the first one they had back after the end of season 8. I recall that one having more stuff than this one. I remember being woefully under prepared for that one, and was on a pretty tight budget at the time. This weekend, I had more flexibility, and had a better idea what I should be looking for.
Unlike the last time, some things changed. First & foremost, it was heavily advertised this time through tweets from locals, and had enough time to give fans from outside of the region time to schedule trips to come here for it. Also, it was on a weekend, unlike last time which was mid-week. Because of this, the crowd size for this years was absurdly larger than the last time when I recall there being less than 50 people lined up when the doors opened. This year, there was severla hundred lined up, and they had to put a cap on people of 1 hour maximum you could shop and look around to try and accommodate as many as possible.
What many that went there do not really understand is, you are not going to get an item worn by one of the 3 mains, or even a notable recurring character. What you PROBABLY could find though, was copies of the clothes those characters wore. When they buy wardrobe for a scene, they will by 5 or 10 or even 20 of an exact item, just to cover their butts incase that item keeps getting damaged in the scenes. Often, nothing gets damaged, and they are stuck with 15 shirts that they really wont be using again. They then sit in storage until a day like this one. You may have found a plaid shirt yesterday that you swore you saw Jared wearing in insert episode here. While the design is right, fact is, he did not wear the one you found. Those are stored away somewhere in a WB vault to auction off for faaaaaar more than the $15 or $20 they were charging yesterday for things.
But for many, finding an item similar to what the boys would have actually worn in the scene was good enough for them. For most, simply saying they got something that came from Supernatural was all they really could ask for.
I have the luxury of being about the same size as the main cast, so their sale has always been a gold mine for me on upgrading my wardrobe. This time, I snagged 9 pieces, including 3 jackets, which I have been woefully low on for a long time. Could some of them have been items bought for 1 of the boys to wear? Perhaps. I wont spend the time trying to match up the items to a scene. I bought them for wearing. But if one of you DO recognize a piece, feel free to let me know in the comments below. Still would be cool to know.
One more thing a lot of people there were excited about, was the fact they got to be in the studio SPN is filmed in. For the observant ones there yesterday, there was a few things to notice too. Like a tape mark on the ground from a scene involving the Impala at some point. They mark off the ground so that crew know exactly where something, or someone has to be positioned in a scene for the cameras.
Up top, there was more cool things, including all the shows People Choice Awards banners hanging in 1 corner. Right above the walkway to leave the sale area & go to the cash registers was a plethora of backdrop sheets with various designs on them. They were all labelled with different things, like "FBI Headquarters", and "New York" etc. I knew that studios had these things obviously, it never occurred to me they just had them up there hanging at all times. But there they were, ready to use on a moments notice.
The video below is a series of clips that I took there put together, some of wardrobe racks, and some of things you would see if you were just looking around.
The gallery is photos I got of items I bought. Also, a few pics of some things I saw on my walk to the sale that probably not many others saw since I came in from the wrong direction. Namely the parking stalls for other productions crew that use that studio like A Million Little Things, Legends Of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Sadly, no cast were parking there lol.
Hope you all enjoyed this small look into the sale, and some of the stuff around the inside of the studio.
UPDATE: Twitter user FlutterbyCM has episode matched 1 of the items I got below. Thanks to them for the terrific work recognizing it.
