It’s not easy being a demon, but cosplayer Jenki pulled it off. Shiklah is a succubus in the Marvel universe with superhuman strength and speed, life-force absorptio powers, and she’s able to transform from her human appearance into the demon version pictured above. Jenki made the entire costume from head to toe. She used expanding foam for the horns and 4-way stretch polyurethine/vinyl for the thigh-high boot covers. She made a custom pattern for Shiklah’s tights and improvised the cape:
Shiklah’s cape is tricky….it just sweeps low around her body but she still needs a bit of elbow room while using it.
BUT THEN it magically likes to hang over her head and her hair accessory like it’s no big deal. So I added a hoodie to give it the drape effect when it sits over on my head haha. The ends are elastic bound so I can slip my wrist through.
I also added an eyelet hook in the back of the hoodie/cape so that it can attach directly over my butt (to cover my behind but also so the cape won’t drag on the ground).
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
