Succubi do not need this much frills on their costumes…

One of the things that I look for in costumes is that they look nice. That’s not to say perfect, just nice. One of the things I hate is when a costume’s hem looks torn or if the accessories make the entire outfit look just wrong. Or if they use the word “fancy” to describe something that isn’t.

Like this one.

Devil Fancy Dress Costume

This is called the Devil Fancy Dress Costume and it comes with the red dress and the horns. Apparently everything else, the pitchfork, boots and stockings, are not included.

It sells for $35 US.

Honestly this isn’t “fancy”. It’s trashy, it’s ugly, it looks lousy. It’s something that really and truly is a waste of material in so many ways.

I hate the skirt, the armlets, the corset, that absolutely lousy lacing on the front of the corset, the horns…

Well, everything really.

It really have been called “trashy” so that the advertising for this disaster was truthful  I think.

Zero pitchforks out of five.

I might have to really think hard about redoing the scorecard for costumes…

It seems like more and more of the things I am finding are zeros.

Really shouldn’t be that way.

    If people are producing zeroes, then your scorecard should reflect that.

    It is just as well that the boots, stockings and pitchfork don’t come with the costume; they do nothing for her,

    Don’t the costumers understand that the elegance of a succubus comes in the simplicity of the outfit, allowing the succubus to shine through? In the case of a succubi, of course, that means the most elegant outfit would leave her completely . . . Ah, but we have these silly human conventions, don’t we? 😉
