Castiel Sock Monkey

30 Dec

I was telling a friend about the Doctor Who sock monkey I was making for another friend. Her reaction was basically, “that’s cool, but you know what would be better? A Castiel sock monkey!” And I thought, “hmmm…” and the wheels started turning.

In case you don’t know, Castiel is a character on the show Supernatural. He plays an angel. He looks like this.

Castiel_807I love Supernatural. It’s one of my favourite shows and Castiel is one of my favourite characters on it. But my friend, like, LOVES Castiel.  So making a Castiel sock monkey for her was perfect. Alright, so first thing I did was make the sock monkey.

IMG_0545Ok. Done.  I knew I needed a trench coat because that’s what he wears in almost every single episode he’s in. But I wasn’t sure about what else I should include. So next I googled  “Castiel Sock Monkey” for inspiration. Apparently that’s not a thing because the only thing that came up was the actor who plays Castiel in a sock monkey hat. Not. Helpful.

Instead I googled “Castiel plush.” That is a thing and there were tons of things to choose from. From looking at those images I decided that I needed to include a blue tie and black wings. Made of felt.

IMG_0649Castiel also wears a black suit with a white dress shirt underneath but I decided against making that as well because once again I didn’t know how and it seemed like too much work.

IMG_0650Also note that the tie is an actual tie and tied like a real tie. No clip on for Castiel. And it’s loosened because that’s how Castiel wears it.

IMG_0652The only thing I don’t like about the Castiel sock monkey is where I placed the wings. From the front they look alright, but from the back they are in the wrong position. In my opinion. But they are now firmly attached so that is where they will stay. And to show you what I mean, here is a picture where it looks like he tripped and fell smack on his face.
