Kneemoi from Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego

Kneemoi may look sweet but don’t take your eyes off her. She’s a shapeshifting grifter who has no issue stealing whatever she wants. Once she even stole all knowledge of Tai Chi! As one of Carmen Sandiego’s henchwomen, she is comfortable in a life of crime, something you probably shouldn’t bring to your Kneemoi cosplay.

Along with setting aside her criminal tendencies, Kneemoi cosplayers have a unique challenge. Kneemoi, in her normal state, is a pink floating ball with arms and, sometimes, a hose-like nose. A pink bodysuit is a good start, as are false lashes and pink face paint. You can add a pink skirt and pink flats if you would like a few more layers. And if you want to copy the nose she has in some variations, you can use skin-safe glue to attach a plastic hose over your nose.

Gumshoe Contestants

Based on the computer game of the same name, Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?, is a children’s game show that aired in the early 90s. The contestants, referred to as “gumshoes” by the Chief, must help ACME find Carmen by answering questions about geography.

Carmen Sandiego

Carmen Sandiego is a world-class cat thief and head of the criminal organization VILE. She’s able to elude the ACME detective agency as they chase her all over the globe, and teach kids some geography along the way. Unfortunately she rarely stays in San Diego — that would make things too obvious.
