She Lies Shattered

Anyone looking for reference shots of Abaddon’s hair from her first episode (Supernatural season 8, episode 12, “As Time Goes By”) for fanart or cosplay, I thought this might be useful.  I took a bunch of high-rez screenshots of the episode, found every angle of her hair I could, cropped them and brightened them to show off the detail, then combined the best of them into two organized collages.  Click for much larger (1200x1200+) images.  Feel free to use and share, just keep my attribution on there if you wouldn’t mind.

It’s definitely a pretty complex hairdo, and not one I would attempt on myself, but on someone else or the right wig it shouldn’t be too bad.  The main bulk of the hair is in a french twist rolling from right to left, with at least four (possibly more) pieces from the crown held in reserve to layer on top of the french twist — on the left from the part to behind the ear, on the right from the temple to behind the ear, the swooped bangs area going from the part to the right ear, and a section on top going up and back.  Fancy, but not impossible.  In one scene I actually spotted a hairpin sticking up out of her hair, which somehow made the whole hairdo seem more realistic, lol.

And, um, I guess the cat’s out of the bag on this one, but this (and this) will be my new costume for DragonCon this year. :D
