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.

Boy I tell ya. With how many ingenious cos-players there are these days, I wouldn't be surprised if we see a global renaissance in fashion from this generation. Well done.

Hey. you did great. The zentai suit would be as good as what you did here. The wig, the horn and other props are amazing, specially the bracelets. The Devil in disguise?

Man, that is a REALLY bad sunburn. you should get that looked at. :nana:

aside from the one lacking detail (the navel :p ) that costume is outrageously awesome to say the least..
tbh had i not read it and had an eye for details i'd have barely noticed it wasn't a body paint job like many others.
it blends very well and the seams appear well hidden (assuming this wasn't shopped..)

No it's not shopped. The flash and the sheen of the fabric can hide the seams well. There are other shots where you can see them. I don't own an airbrush so I opted not to put the belly button on until I do have one. Thanks!
