John Constantine the one and only master exorcist, monologist and
master dabbler of the dark arts! The titular antihero of the popular DC comic Hellblazer has long been a convention favorite due to its ease of putting together a Constantine costume yourself. The iconic trench coat, white button-up and red tie are the mainstay of his outfit. John Constantine first got his start as a character in a cameo with The Saga of the Swamp Thing No. 25 as a working class magician and detective of the occult. Fans love him for his snark, cynicism, cunning and his dry sense of humor. The character John Constantine was also the inspiration for the character Castiel in Supernatural. The character also got his own movie in 2005 starring Keanu Reeves and was made into an NBC show starring Matt Ryan in the NBC television show Constantine. Below we’ve assembled everything you need to put together your very own Constantine costume for your next convention. Also this would be great for a group cosplay as well if you include the characters Zed Martin, Chas Chandler and the angel Manny.
