Inspired by copious amounts of SPN marathons with my friends, and observing the general feel to the character designs. THEREFORE, I created my own hunter oc and outfit.
The jacket is dragon hide from northern Europe, which isn't nearly as cool as it sounds as dragons (a) are not as big as they're made out to be, and (b) don't breath fire
so much as transparent hydogen flames.
The whole ordeal was very disappointing, actually. She went all the way to Europe to kill one of the damn things, and it took four just to put that jacket together! Still, the hide has the nifty properties of being extremely difficult to pierce or cut, resistant to very high temperatures, and possessing a very nice texture.
Unfortunately, dragonhide also soaks up water like a sponge.
There's a reason you don't often hear about dragons and rain in the same sentence.
The symbols were burnt into the leather with acid, which was a very long and painful process -especially since she ran the risk of destroying a perfectly good jacket while she was at it. The runes and various symbols are for good luck, protection against evil, and focusing energy, mainly.
And then there's the obligatory denim and boots.
