High-Class Commander Demon by HezaChan High-Class Commander Demon by HezaChan
Photos by Chase Wirth

I love doing last-minute costumes before a convention, so this was my decision. I tried to get a friend to do Scanty with me, but things didn't work out due to time constrictions. At first I tried to buy a zentai suit instead of making my own just incase my friend decided to make Scanty so our skin colors would match -- however, when my suit arrived, it had a huge freaking iron burn right on the chest. Needless to say, I got a full refund, and with that refund I made my own suit. It would have been more difficult had I not used the ruined suit as a pattern. I actually made 2 bodysuits because I couldn't find any red lycra that wasn't orangish in color in my area, so I made my first out of a knit that didn't stretch well at all. Then by a stroke of luck, I found the perfect lycra in a town 30 minutes away. I found fake nails, painted them blue and then glued them to the glove parts of the suit.

The horn is made from white model magic. I then covered it with layers upon layers of Mod Podge then sanded it smooth, painted it red with acrylic paint, and sealed it with a clear spray paint. It was then simply sewn onto the wig because model magic is foamy and easy to sew into. The top, skirt, collar, arm bands, gauntlets, and thigh bands were all made within a week and a half of the convention. I wish that I had body tape on me as I didn't think of the vinyl wanting to slide around because I was wearing a bodysuit and it wasn't sticking to my skin. That's why in most photos my criss-cross gauntlets weren't staying up properly.

The face makeup took me an hour and a half to complete. My first test took me only an hour, but at the convention I tried a few different techniques. I used Krylon cake makeup in the color 081, with Ben Nye Creme Color makeup in the color CL-13 Fire Red on top to try to match my bodysuit as well as possible. The red was then set with Ben Nye's Neutral Set colorless face powder. It still wanted to rub off a bit, so I think in the future I'll seal it up with good old fashioned hairspray. It took me about 2 - 3 hours to get into full costume, and I had to have help by my finace since there isn't much grip with me wearing gloves and all.

This is such a great cosplay! How did you do the eyelashes, might I ask? They look so amazing!

I bought "cleopatra" lashes for the bottom and I used some crazy drag queen lashes for the top lashes.

It makes it look a lot like the anime, so you really did an awesome job! Officially my favorite Kneesocks cosplay of all time just for the little details! <3

If that was body paint instead of a body suit, I would say you're the best Kneesocks I've seen. The body suits don't look as good as paint does.

Yes, but paint is messy, expensive, and I didn't want to mess up hotel furniture with my red butt. <.< I'd imagine paying for damages would not be cheap.

Very detailed cosplay here, the lighting really makes you look sinister which is very fitting for Kneesocks. :D 2-1/2 to 3 hours to get into costume?! Wow, and here I thought spending 5 minutes to get into the last cosplay I wore was a long time XD

You are THE best Kneesocks cosplayer I've seen yet. After seeing so many attempts at the character, you're the one whose been able to pull her off the best. Great job.

And that's very clever using a suit instead of painting your entire body. Smart.

Great costume!!
My only thought is that next time you wear this one, perhaps you might do a bit of contouring in the hollows of your cheeks, with some black shadow. Kind of like blush. If you did that, I probably just can't see it because of the lighting in the picture. I think it would make the dimensions in your face a bit more dynamic...

But yeah. You are a total cosplay badass!! I would never dream of getting something done so quickly.

I was thinking about that but I was too afraid that my face would look too skeletal D: I did put pink blush on. I think the makeup job would show better had I done a photoshoot in the day.
