I need ideas for making a better devil costume ASAP!

Every year where I live we put on a haunted trail sort of thing for two weekends and this year they cut back on some of the other attractions making the lines for the trail longer so they need people to work the trail and entertain people. I'm left being the she devil, ithe costume is not supposed to be super reveling, but reveling enough but as it is right now its really unflattering, so I want to try and make my own. I'm horrible with patterns though and to buy one it wouldn't be warm enough.

i'd start with a red leotard.  form fitting, but not revealing per se.  for added warmth, you could make a red cape out of thicker material.  add a red short skirt, maybe with some flames on it, and of course your accessories, pitchfork, horns and tail.  it's kind of the standard devil, but depending how involved you want to get... you can paint your face red and get the latex horns on your forehead, yellow contacts and a forked tongue attachment!

my husband and I have he-devil and she-devil costumes.  I made the horns out of craft foam sheets and hot glue, bought the pitchforks at Walmart.  For mine, I  painted  "She-Devil" on a red tee shirt, then painted flames in yellow along the hem, sleeves, and neckline, and cut them out when dry.  I cut the neck all the way from sleeve to sleeve, kind of like a boatneck, then added purple lace insets so the shirt doesn't fall off.  Skimpy red shorts under a purple lace skirt, and red shoes complete the outfit.  A tail would be nice...
