Quote by Osric Chau about cosplay from his intro video Salute to Supernatural Toronto 2014


Over the past couple of years, Osric Chau has become one of the most beloved members of fandom and an extremely popular convention guest. In part, this is due to his willingness to immerse himself in fandom itself, and in nowhere is this more apparent than in his adoption of cosplay at the Supernatural Conventions both in North America and overseas.

In December 2013, Osric took this creative relationship with fans a step further and invited fans to help him design his costumes for the coming 2014 convention schedule. The Thing! - Osric Chau on Youtube

In an effort to document his adventures in cosplay, in 2014 Osric started a Facebook album called "A Journey of Cosplay" that showcased fan photos from his various cosplays.

On the 2nd January, 2015 Osric updated his Facebook page to give a run down of the conventions he would be attending in 2015, as well as a general idea of what cosplays he would be attempting in order to let fans join him cosplaying.

In 2015, fan artist Bonejangless created a series of art available through her Redbubble store chronicling Osric's different cosplays. They are available as stickers, iPhone cases or skins, and spiral notebooks.

In late 2015, Osric announced at Salute to Supernatural Denver 2015 that unfortunately this year would probably be the last he would be doing as much cosplay at conventions, as it was taking up too much time and distracting him from trying to work!

The Incredible Hulk

Osric's own cosplay.

“I painted the room green that night. Rick, Ty and Matt got their fair share of it. And unable to scrub it off that night, the following day's photo ops had me sporting a green neck. I kinda liked the idea that it helped solidify A10 in my mind forever and if I ever saw a photo with green on my neck I would know exactly when and where it was taken.”

Salute to Supernatural Dallas 2013 Dallas, TX USA Princess Bubblegum ( Adventure Time ) Osric's own cosplay.

"I had my princess bubblegum outfit ready for SDCC 2013 but ended up working that week last minute. Thus I had a costume and no more con to wear it to. 'Oh but there's a Supernatural convention not too far after, I'll just wear it to that.'"

Salute to Supernatural Burbank 2013 Burbank, CA USA Rapunzel ( Tangled ) Osric's own cosplay.

“For Burcon my friend Jessie mentioned that she had a Rapunzel dress. I laughed it off saying I didn't want my agents and managers calling me again saying that ‘People come to these conventions to meet Osric Chau, not Osric Chau as Princess Bubblegum’ And then I decided, screw it, it'll be fun, I'll do it anyways. Kevin had a frying pan just like Rapunzel did, it's close enough to Supernatural.”

"I handled Kevin's passing way worse than I had intended. But I had the SPN Family for support, and they in turn had a cosplaying fool that was just trying to forget that he had died in the show that he had grown to love. And so the year of the Cosplaying began."

Salute to Supernatural Vancouver 2014 Vancouver, BC 2014 Goku (Dragonball Z)

Costume by Ashley J Young

"Vancon was something else. It's the Mecca of Supernatural conventions as this is where the magic happens and it just so happens to be my hometown. My cosplayer for this one was a close friend of mine and when she suggested Goku, it was a done deal. This was something I've been wanting to do my entire life, so thank you Ashley! Ashley is a makeup artist in Vancouver and she also happens to put together some amazing costumes."
