I don’t get a fever from this Succubus costume…

I found a Succubus costume that, at first, I actually gave serious consideration to ordering. I actually have been looking at it for about a month now, and I am still on the fence about it to be honest… It has a certain appeal in one way that I like, but then other parts of it make me cringe a lot…

So…

What do you think?


First things first, this costume is called the Fever Pin-Up Devilicious Costume. The name really doesn’t do a lot for me, but let’s get past that and onto the costume itself then…

The costume comes with a red PVC look jumpsuit with an attached belt, a tail, attached to the belt, a pair of long glovettes, a pair of strap-on wings that loop under your arms, and finally a pair of red devil horns. The stockings and shoes are not included with the costume, they are of course available separately.

Here’s where my internal struggle starts… I like the wings. Yes I know, I generally hate wings, but these don’t look awful like some I have seen, so I would be okay with wearing them. The gloves are fine as well, they match the dress part of the costume so that’s okay… The tail isn’t great, and I would remove the belt somehow, it just doesn’t work for me to be honest.

I approve of the horns. I think they are really nice looking and I do rather what them regardless of the rest of the costume.

It pains me a bit that they do not include the stockings or shoes as part of an overall package for this costume. I honestly think that they would sell a lot of this combination if they did at a package price and not the way they do.

And that means the costume itself is $75 US and the stockings and shoes are another $80 US. This makes little sense to me to be honest. Why not have a package deal for say $100 US that gives you the complete outfit?

But that’s just my opinion as always…

I’m giving this costume three and a half pitchforks out of five and… believe it or not… I’m placing it on the list of possible costumes for next Halloween…

Mind you, it still needs work, but I think I can make it better than it is…

    I have two problems, not necessarily presented in order of priority:

    First (by virtue of a coin toss): I don’t like the wings. They are not you. The same outfit with feathery wings would be much more you.

    Second: we have yet another outfit modelled by somebody who looks like she hates being dressed up in this . . . or, perhaps, she is constipated. If she can’t looki like she’s enjoy what she is doing, what hope does a customer have? Why would you want to buy something that makes one look that uncomfortable (and, by extension, not sexy)? One would think that the model could at least think of her paycheck and manage a small smile.
