Rhinestones do not a Succubus Costume make…

Rhinestones do not a Succubus Costume make… that I think should be something that costume maker should keep in mind when creating outfits like this one…

There are some good things about this costume, but let’s get through the not so nice details first…

The costume comes with a really bad pair of horns. They are almost drooping looking and have a headband that is almost as wide as my hand in width. Really ugly looking and were the first thing I tossed into the garbage when it arrived.

The dress, as you would except, does have rhinestones in it, but they are only on the bodice, otherwise there are none. The fishnets and the shoes as well as the pitchfork do not come with thus costume…

I have mentioned in other posts that I dislike outfits that have a ragged edge to them, this costume has that. I fail to see why you would need to do something like that in this case. Why not just make the dress long enough to have a slit up the right side and leave it at that? Really it would I think look so much better like that. If not that, then keep the shape of this dress, but smoothen out the hem… That would really help a lot in this case…

I also wonder about making it black and red rather than red alone. Perhaps a swirling pattern over the fabric to bring out the curves in it would have helped some…

You can find this costume on the web for $30 USD… But it needs some work…

I’ll give it for the moment, two pitchforks out of five, but I have to see how I can spruce this up somehow…

Keep looking like I still am…

    Your Majesty seems too kind once again. You have thrown out the horns, and you call for completely rebuilding the dress with your own fabric. Since nothing else is provided, exactly what has earned the two pitchforks?
