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.

no kidding the best Kneesocks I've ever seen. The body suit isn't even noticeable at first, only realized it after reading the description.

One of the best I have seen! May I ask what your costume is made out of and what you made the symbol on the belt from? :>

Thank you so much! Unfortunately, we already got some fabric for our costumes since we were in a hurry. We got regular matte vinyl, which is actually looking pretty nice! We wanted something a little more shinier, like yours, but the matte looks just as good. I appreciate it! :> Where'd you get the studs/spikes too? Sorry for all the questions.
