It’s no secret that the Supernatural fandom gets pretty attached to the characters, regardless of how bizarre that attachment is. We in the Supernatural family have found a strange attachment to Lucifer himself, the King of Hell, and a Trickster/Archangel, but none of those are as tough to explain as the fandom’s love for Dean’s 1967 Chevy Impala, the Metallicar more commonly known to the fandom as “Baby”.
The Impala has become a silent character on the show–not unlike the TARDIS on Doctor Who–even prompting an episode in season 11, aptly titled “Baby”, that was shown through the point of view of the Impala herself. So it’s no surprise that with the Impala’s significant role in the show that fans have started cosplaying as Baby, however random it may seem to those outside of the fandom.
Of course, those of us in the fandom know that the Impala is just as important of a character as Sam or Dean, because the Impala’s role in the show means that even though Sam and Dean never really had a roof and four walls they were never, in fact, homeless. Let’s take a moment to appreciate everyone’s favorite muscle car with some awesome Impala cosplay.
