After working on Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story: Freak Show, David LeRoy Anderson — two-time Academy Award-winning makeup artist and owner of AFX Studio — was hired to create the "glamorous and scary" Red Devil character for Scream Queens.
To help him develop the look of the Red Devil costume and mask, Anderson hired a handful of conceptual artists to come up with as many designs as they could. Anderson then took the fifteen best designs and laid them out on a table for Murphy to choose from.
Murphy ended up going with a design that relative newcomer Xander Smith came up with. It featured a Red Devil with upper eye shadow, black horns, black goatee, and painted wicked red. You can see Smith's final and alternate designs by clicking on "Start Slideshow."
