Demona from Disney’s Gargoyles Costume

Demona Gargoyles

Disney’s animated series Gargoyles is one of my favorite cartoons. It’s not what you would expect from Disney in the mid-90s; the show is moody with a dark and rich color palette and fascinating characters. One of those characters is Demona. The female gargoyle was fierce and manipulative. Coolest Homemade Costumes user Taryn made the costume last year. She tried wearing blue body paint, but it ended up being too messy so she transformed her skin with a blue zentai suit. Here’s how she made the rest of the cosplay:

I then purchased a red rocker wig and plastic vampire fangs (I recommend Scarecrow fangs because they just cap your canine teeth and are molded to fit your teeth exactly). The “crown” was made using cardboard (cut into the proper shape) covered in gold vinyl fabric and secured behind my head with elastic. The clothing pieces (skirt and top) were made from crudely ripped fabric sewn together.

This is one of those rare times where being a lousy sewer [seamstress] will work out for you! The wings were made using four pieces of wooden siding (two for each wing) attached to a small backpiece made from a wooden plaque (you can get them at craft stores). I then attached fabric to the wings using a glue glun and then glue gunned craft foam over the wooden wing frame wo make it look more like natural wings. The wings did have a hinge so I could open and close them. The feet were fun to make (although several hours of wearing them hurt like you wouldn’t believe). I bought high heels with a clear heel to give the illusion standing on my toes (like the real gargoyles’ feet). I then cut off all of the shoe fabric and began duct taping together new shoes. I made the points of the toes and the back clat with craft foam and secured them with more duct tape. After a solid paint job, I was done! There is a small tail which you can’t see that I made from fabric stuffed with polyfill.
