Victoria? This Costume isn’t a Succubus one

I expect certain things from certain companies. For example, Victoria’s Secret I expect sexy, seductive costumes that have no faults, look sexy, and, most of all, are something that I would want to buy. They did, once, make a Devil Girl costume…

It’s a shame that it really isn’t.

Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Costume

This is called the Victoria’s Secret Sexy Little Things Costume and it came with the bikini that has all those straps on it, the pitchfork, such as it is, and the horns that the model is wearing…

Now, it isn’t available from Victoria’s Secret anymore, but you can find it easily enough on eBay, though why anyone would want to is beyond me at least…

I don’t care for the costume, it’s nothing special, nothing all that sexy, and, most of all, why would they ruin what otherwise would be a sexy bikini by adding all that web in-between?

The horns are cheap lousy ones, the pitchfork is absolutely nothing to speak of either.

And this is where I have the biggest problem of all. Why would Victoria’s Secret want to promote something like this when, in all honestly, just about every other costume they had for sale, and as well, those that they still do have for sale, are so much better than this is?

I can’t believe that they would allow something like this onto the market when they could have doen so much more than this.

As for trying to do something to make this better… I can’t honestly see a way to improve what is, in truth, impossible to do without throwing away the entire thing and starting from scratch.

You would be better served by looking through their lingerie, picking something sexy in red, adding a pair of nice horns and calling that your costume…

Zero pitchforks out of five.

That’s being generous I think to be honest.

    Back in 2004 the K-1 Kickboxing promotion held it’s middleweight world finals in Tokyo. Among these finalists was previous champion and hero to the Japanese people, Masato. Masato was the favorite to win the tournament and had made a name for himself abroad as one of the first Japanese competitors to perform well internationally. Both Masato and Japan had high expectations for this tournament final. Then it all went to shit.

    Masato ended up facing Buakaw Por Pramuk for the world middleweight title in what was less a fight and more an S&M session where Masato was the gimp. It was a beating so brutal that K-1 was actually forced to change it’s rules to make sure it never happened again. Buakaw sniped at his head with impossible kicks while teleporting behind him like the boss character in a fighting game. Masato was reduced to rushing forward and clinching with him like infant clings to his mother, but Buakaw was an awful mom. He hammered Masato with multiple, inescapable knees that were forever after banned under K-1 rules.

    It was one of the darkest days in Japanese kickboxing history, a hideous blow to the pride of both Masato and the country as a whole. The crushing disappointment Masato felt that day is roughly equal to what I felt when I found out that this nightmare of a costume was spawned out of Victoria’s Secret. I thought that professionals were supposed to have standards but this costume proved me wrong. So wrong that I felt compelled to write this rambling diatribe just to express how terrible I think this “costume” is.

    This is a true devil costume, I think. Someone high up at VS made a deal with the devil . . . and lost. This si the result.

    Different tack, a bit of an observation and a (perhaps unsurprising) admission.

    I have a little bit of a fetish for lingerie. Have had since long before I was old enough to really understand what a fetish was, quite frankly. The Internet came along and Bonanza!!! So, obviously, I’d heard of VS long before I ever went to the US. Big reputation for sexy, I agree. My first proper trip to the US (on business) I found a VS outlet at a mall near my hotel and went to take a look. I bought my then partner something too. Not a devil costume; a rather nice teddy, as I recall.

    Thing is, after visiting the place, and now they have a proper web site (they didn’t back then), I really don’t think of them as falling into the sexy category. I think they did do sexier stuff a while back, but now… VS is more like the American version of Marks and Spencer, La Perla if I’m being generous. That’s high-street underwear. VS has sexy models, but the actual products… pretty average. If I were splashing out on lingerie for a lady, I’d go to Agent Provocateur. (The actually have a small shop in my local mall as well as a really beautiful one in the city centre.)

    *sigh* Now I just need someone to buy the stuff for.

    Anyway, just an observation from across the Pond. My Sexy Underwear Relativity Theorem, if you like. 😉

    It really is one of the best I have heard and I think that Lilly and Ceridwyn have worked out that one a looooong time ago…
