Gold Horns do not a Succubus Costume make…

Sometimes, when you purchase a costume, they throw in certain things to make it more attractive… Some add a set of horns, others gloves or fishnets…

But most of the time it really doesn’t help all that much… Like this one.

This costume comes with a set of gold foil covered horns, a red corset with gold trim, the red dress of similar material to the corset and a pair of red lace sleeves…

There is no tail to this costume, nor do the shoes shown in the photo come with it.

I have a few issues with this outfit, but not quite as many as you might think. The biggest one is that the horns just don’t work with this costume. They are gold, which is fine, but they are attached to a red headband that is the same color as the dress.

I think that is a mistake really. It would have been better to be a clear headband and red horns or the red horns and the red headband.

But otherwise? I would seriously wear this to my office party if for no other reason that it’s on the cute side and still has a little touch of sexy in it… I would however probably not go with shoes. I think a pair of leather high-heel boots in black would work along with a set of black horns and tail.

You can find this costume on the web for $50 USD.

It’s surprisingly well made and isn’t something you would wear once and throw away…

Three out of five pitchforks, but needs some tweaks…

    The dress is lovely, but I am trying to remember/imagine what golden horns and tails might signify.
