A word from Andrew, the 'The Demon' costume creator:
Well I'm a KISS Fanatic and so I had to be Gene. So I am 45 yrs old and want to be a The Demon. My wife and I went to Michaels Craft Store and bought some Styrofoam, pleather, chains, glue, velcro, and some big thumb tacks. I went to the Sporting goods store to buy a jock strap. My wife bought me some black tights. We got home and started to build "The Demon". My wife made a jacket with the black pleather. It was open in front so I could cut the chain and arrange it so it would look like it was one piece. She also made a belt and attached the thumb tacks so they looked like studs. I took the jock strap and painted it black and covered it with pleather and tacks for studs. I put on the black tight with nothing on underneath and then the jock strap went over tights. I bought 6" platform boots on line for $60.00 and painted dragon faces on the foot part of the shoe. I took some roofing flashing, cut it and hammered it to look like shoulder pads, then carved some horns from the Styrofoam and glued them onto shoulder covers. After I put on the boots I took long length of roofing flashing and cut leg guards and painted scales on them. The makeup and wig were put on to me by my wife, Jill. The costume all together cost $90.00.
The best thing about the costume was when we went to the party every woman wanted to take a picture with me and to grab my butt.
The worst thing about it is walking in 6' flat form shoes for over 4 hours, now I know how you women feel. I don't know how you women walk in high heels all day long.
