Sparkly costumes do not a Succubus make…

The one thing that I cannot quite understand is how a flashy costume can be defined as being something that is “hot” and more so, how it can be seen to make anyone that wears it look anything other than trashy.

This week’s costume is a prime example of that I think.

Hot Devil Babe Costume

This is called the Hot Devil Babe Costume and it comes with the horns, the dress, the pitchfork and, according to the costume description, it even comes with a detachable tail as well.

Which makes this one of the few costumes that actually has a tail and that was a surprise when I read that point.

The shoes are not included.

It sells for, and this is the disappointing part, $90 US on the sites that I have found this on.

I can’t quite see that this costume is worth that much really. Yes the sequins would make the costume more expensive, I understand that much, but overall, is this worth that much?

It sort of falls into the same category as last week’s costume where there are other, more amazingly sexy and well done costumes for about the same cost.

I will say that, if I ignore the cost, I do like this style wise, which counts for something at least.

The pitchfork and horns don’t do much for me, but they do match the costume, so there are points to be given for that attention to detail for one.

For the other, it comes with a semi-decent tail which, again, adds more to this costume than I otherwise would have expected it to be.

I would have liked the shoes to be included as well, as they match everything else so well too.

But then the cost comes into play, and adding the shoes, which are another $40 US on top of the costume itself?

I can’t quite bring myself to give this as high a rating as I would otherwise want to.

Two and a half pitchforks out of five.

If it was around fifty dollars I would give it a three for the cute most of all…

    Well the average score on these costumes has gone from cornea-shreddingly awful to oppressively mediocre which is technically an improvement. Hooray?

    Yes, the dress is interesting. I would kind of like to see how the tail looks. Amazon.com now has it down to $68 US, which is a slight improvement.

    But is that model of legal age??

    All questions that we’ll never have the answers for I think…
