The best land comm challenge EVAH!

So I'm on the awesome tvchiller (with my cohort heffermonkey!) in the land comm tvrealm. The latest challenge read:

• Episode: 1x13: Recreate a Scene
• Ep Summary: Recreate a tv scene and take a picture!
• Ep Details: Use food, household items, pets, action figures, or even yourself and friends to recreate a tv scene and take a picture!
• Be creative and make it as accurate or as LOLzy as you like.
• Images should not be heavily added to or altered after you take the picture.


Instantly my eyes darted to the long shelf stocked with my numerous Final Fantasy Playarts figures. I was online with qbiggerthanlove and started pitching "casting" ideas for Supernatural. The following is what resulted:


cloud strife as
DEAN WINCHESTER
squall leonhart as
SAM WINCHESTER
selphie tilmitt as
LILITH
red xiii as
HELLHOUND
vincent valentine as
CASTIEL
yuffie kisaragi as
GABRIEL





CLICKING IMAGES = ENLARGING THE IMAGE
Original Material: SPN 3x16 "No Rest for the Wicked" (captured in the following four screencaps)
Dean is taken to Hell.

Re-imagined:
Lilith pinned Sam to the wall! Dean is being attacked by invisible hellhound!


NOOOOOO!





CLICKING IMAGES = ENLARGING THE IMAGE
Original Material: SPN 5x08 "Changing Channels" - First set of photos from the sitcom part of the episode, near the end of this youtube video clip. Second photo set from the end of the episode and the ring of fire, if you know the episode, you know what I mean.

Re-imagined:
Enter the real star of the show! Helllllo Trickster!


Trickster banishes Castiel from the sitcom! Buh-bye!


Dude, we want out of this insanity!


So ya caught me.


Bonus pic below, 'cuz I hadn't found the tissue paper for a ring of fire yet + I did intend to include Cas, but "Cas" is so damn tall that it looked ridiculous.



I hope you enjoyed this ridiculousness! I love that I had a "practical use" for having these action figures! ;D

BEHIND-THE-SCENES NOTES
• "Castiel's" (normal)hand kept falling off! I would be moving him to stand up or bend his knees and suddenly his hand fell off!
• Speaking of "Castiel," I almost forgot to remove his handgun. Yeah. The angel wasn't exactly using human weaponry yet.
• I wanted to change "Lilith's" hand, and I did, but I realized after taking the picture that the hand I put in was too slender for that figure - I think it was for Aeris. :p
• "Gabriel" kept messing up my set design, I swear. I worked to drape the fabric as a sort of wallpaper and then Gabe got tangled in it and would fall into Dean or knock the doorway over...
• I tried to set up the scene where Gabriel slams Dean up against the wall in anger. Well *coughlaugh* just holding them in place made it look like Yuffie was desperately trying to kiss Cloud. XD I'm not a huge Dean/Gabriel fan, plus it's not canon so I didn't bother trying to get the figures to stand on their own to take a picture. lol

LOL thanks!! It was kind of a debate to figure out which emo!hero would play which Winchester, but I think it worked out for the best :D

And poor Red! Forced to play a horror of Hell. :p

LOL LOL LOL...super well done. Very creative and funny. I need to watch the clip after work, but your photo setting is amazing.

I need to come up with an idea. (I have two but don't know yet how to realize)

Go Team Chiller!

THANKS! \o/ It was really fun and I'm rather impressed I didn't get carried away. (I love that whole episode and that YT clip is great to capture the sitcom realm, heee.)

And ooo! What ideas do you have? :D

I thought long before going to bed and today during work (inside the clean room...pssst)

My first thought was a crime scene, but I beg a few people will do this.

I also thought of copying the streamin freedom video of Dark Angel. Or the Bobby Goren Lean, see my sig:

Sig 2

But I think I'll copy another Scene of Criminal Intent, using my stuffed animals or LEGO.

Ooo stuffed animals! LEGOs! Hee, if I was back at my mom's house I'd probably go crazy with recreations playing with my Playmobil sets :3

Thanks! It was ridiculously fun! (I need more excuses to play with toys, set things up.) Srsly, I spent so much money on this collection (even though I managed to get each one at the lower prices) that I should have some fun with them :D

*thunderous applause*

Squall is totally emo enough to be Sam. XD

lol! I know, right? ;D For some reason I first pitched the idea of Cloud as Sam, but as soon as I IM'd it, I realized it needed to be reversed. Cloud has far more self-worth issues but overall is less emo-y, so he got to play Dean. ;)

The issue I'm now dealing with is that I'm writing fic and starting to envision the action figures acting out the scenes. XD Terribly distracting.
