You really can’t wing it as a Succubus…

It strikes me that some costume designers get hooked on the concept of a Devil Woman or Succubus costume in that they have a pair of horns and figure that anything added to that will make the costume “Succubus-like”.

This is not one of those, if there ever was such a possibility…

Night Wing Devil CostumeThis is called the Night Wing Devil Costume, which makes some sense even if the entire thing looks just wrong.

It comes with a bodice with buckles in the front and a drop waist. A red and black ruffle tutu and a pair of mesh glovelettes, a devil horn headband and spider web wings.

The boots are not included.

The costume sells for about $60 US.

And it does nothing for me.

The wings don;t make a lot of sense for the costume. The gloves add nothing to it, the tutu is ugly, but most of all…

There is no tail.

Why have a costume like this without a tail? I know that it wouldn’t help the look of this very much, but it is an obvious omission.

Not sure if I should be thankful for that or not really.

It looks as if, I think anyway, that this might be another example of a generic costume having horns attached to it in order to sell it as a Devil Woman costume.

I can understand that, it would be a relatively inexpensive thing for the manufacturer to do, but really does it make the concept any better?

I don’t think it does.

Still, there is some use in this sort of costume for those more tame parties that do happen on Halloween…

Regardless, this gets a quarter pitchfork out of five.

Leaving it on the shelf and moving on…

    Hi Tera!

    Love the blog and the costume reviews. Saw your entry about the flaming boots and thought about a suggestion on maybe doing reviews on succubi related accessories aswell? Horns, tails, wings, etc.

    Would be pretty cool and interesting.

    Love,
