Occasionally with some costumes, they include a mask. Now personally I don’t care for them, mostly because I find most of them are very hard to see out of. There are however some of them that I do like and I have talked about them here on the Tale before.
However, this time I have a costume that isn’t too awful, but a mask that makes me cringe… a lot.
This is called the Devil Sexy Lame Devil Costume, which I admit is a bit of a mouthful really. It comes with the stretch Lame gown and gloves, a pair of horns, the pitchfork and venetian mask.
Shoes and other accessories are not included, there is no tail as well, and it sells for $76 US.
There are a few things that I don’t care for. The horns look very wrong, the pitchfork once again is one of the lousy ones that I hate to no end.
But the mask… What is that supposed to be? When I first saw this I thought that this costume was some kind of a cat girl slash devil girl costume. I don’t understand why such a colour pattern would be added to it and make what could have looked nice… not.
Setting aside my personal reservations with the mask, horns and pitchfork, the dress otherwise I kind of like.
Now part of that is I like shiny in my costumes, which this obviously has, and with the gloves being the same material it really works well together. I even like the shoes the model is wearing, which is saying something…
I’ll give this serious consideration for my costume choice this year… But, the pitchfork and horns I will throw away the moment it arrives and replace them with my better ones…
And I think I have a pair of heels that will match too, which has to count for something doesn’t it?
I’ll give this three out of five pitchforks.
A beginning, which is nice, but I wish better accessories would be included…
