PROMOS: SUPERNATURAL 8×11 LARP and the Real Girl Promo Images

Next Wednesday’s Sam-and-Dean-go-LARPing Supernatural is the one I can’t wait for. It has it all: Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles)  Winchester investigate the deaths of two players in an elaborate Michigan live-action-role-play game, Moondoor: The Battle of the Kingdoms, filmed mainly in Coquitlam’s Mundy Park. Here they find one of my favourite SPN characters, hacker Charlie Bradbury (Geek Goddess Feclicia Day), is Queen of Moondoor, and Dean goes undercover engaging in medieval cosplay.  TVLine’s sneak peek at The CW promo images of the episode are the first look at the actors on set, which was closely guarded by Supernatural crew during the several-days-long shoot in the wet park. I got access only after filming wrapped and cleanup crew packed up the tent below and other props.

Here’s a promo image of Dean in medieval garb with chain mail, a tunic and a shield and my photo of a prop portrait on the grass of the Queen of Moondoor looking a lot like the promo image of Felicia Day below.

SHOOT: SUPERNATURAL 8×11 LARP and the Real Girl Set in Coquitlam’s Mundy Park

Best LARP Ever? And I missed it. Supernatural filmed for several days on its LARP (live action role playing) set in Coquitlam’s Mundy Park  this past week and last. Locals walking their dogs told me they spotted both Jared Padalecki’s Sam and Jensen Ackles’s Dean in among all the background performers dressed in medieval garb for what the sign says is Michigan’s largest LARPing game: MoonDoor, The Battle of Kingdoms. As disappointed as I am to have missed people dressed up like knights for the eleventh episode of season eight, what I’m really kicking myself for is not going out in the pouring rain to try to catch a glimpse of geek goddess Felicia Day (Eureka, Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog)’s return as adorkable hacker Charlie.

LARP and the Real Girl (a clever pun on the Ryan Gosling flick Lars and the Real Girl) also features a new character Gerard, a LARPer who goes too far playing this medieval game. Season Eight showrunner Jeremy Carver told TV sites that Supernatural will approach the LARPing universe differently than it has in the past. I look forward to seeing what they do on screen.
