This costume is not a Hottie…

Once again, and it is I know getting ridiculous, I’ve found yet another costume that has somehow crawl out of some trash bin somewhere and managed to get itself on the costume market… When will it happen that some good costumes appear?

It won’t be this week anyway…

Devil Hottie Costume

This is called the Devil Hottie costume and it comes with the dress, the overskirt and devil wings. The stockings are not included, nor are the armlets and it does not come with a set of horns and it has no tail either.

It sells for $60 US.

No. Just no.

This is supposed to be hot? Supposed to be sexy? They must be kidding as I just can’t see anything here save for a really tacky outfit with wings that look like they are home-made from a picnic tablecloth.

I have looked at a lot of tacky and, surprisingly, this is a new level of tacky that I have never reached… or rather stooped to now that I think about it.

There is nothing in this that I like, there is nothing that could be done to improve it, save for leaving it on the shelf and passing it up that is.

I really do wonder what it is about designing Devil Girl costumes that is so difficult in the first place. I realize that creating a Succubus costume is several steps above that and doing so is just about impossible… but…

They just have to do better than this.

Yet another zero out of five pitchforks…

Next week won’t be any better I can promise you…

    Actually, strangely, I like the attempt and the style given, even if in the end the result has a bad quality. I am fond of these punk-ish tones. Well, perhaps our tastes are different… or perhaps, as Gilbert Rozon would say: “It’s so bad that it becomes brillant”.

    No, I don’t like this at all, but I seem to recall a costume not too long ago that was a bad parochial school devil-girl outfit. Maybe there is a whole set of these out there, representing all of the cliques of a fashion-challenged demonic high school: this is the goth, there must be a demon preppie, and a devil-nerd-girl, and a devil-girl-jock . . . I know we have seen the cheerleader here before. This could all be planned to create the world’s most depressing theme costume party.

    Isn’t devil girl cheerleader technically the jock? I have to admit, I’m intrigued by the idea of a “devil girl” school. Hell, why not a devil girl world? There could be a devil girl hipster, devil girl stoner, devil girl teacher, devil girl cop, devil girl soldier, devil girl big body, devil girl zebra, devil girl Super-Phoenix…

    I think there are better ways of doing this sort of thing really…
