This homemade costume for men entered our 2010 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Joe Siemion, the 'The Demon' costume creator:

The picture was taken by my mom in front of our home on October 10th, 2010. It took the whole summer to complete. Total cost $100.00 This homemade costume is 'The Demon' (Gene Simmons of KISS) was constructed of scrap materials bought from a second hand store.

The 'armor' was cut out of aluminum baking sheets and pie tins, I used a hammer to shape and wear out the edges then riveted together. The 'waist' piece was cut out of leather to fit, I bought the studs and attached them. The 'boots' were bought and transformed into platform style by trace the outline of the boot and cutting out 8 piece of wood. These were glued together and attached with 5" screws. Finally I covered the wood with black material to blend in. The wig, cape(cut in half and shaped), knee guards(I painted silver) and makeup are store bought.

Thank you and Happy Halloween
