Not quite a Devilish Delight so far as a costume…

Devilish Delight CostumeAnother sequinned costume this week to consider and for the most part I like it overall. But it is when adding the optional extras that I have a few issues with this costume. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good costume on its own mind you. I just think it should be something more…

This is called the Devilish Delight Costume and it comes with the sequinned red strapless romper, pitchfork and horns. It does not include the shoes and it sells for $85 US but can be found for as little as $60 US…

While I like the basic costume, and I can even like the horn as they do match the dress, it needs a lot of things… Like a tail, the shoes and as well I think that a sequinned tutu would really add to the look as a whole. Otherwise there is just a bit too much… plain… in this for my own taste.

The problem is, gathering all of the other accessories needed, that being the shoes the model is wearing and a tutu, would push this ensemble to well over $150 and I am not quite sure that it is worth it.

The issue for me is that there are other more elaborate costumes which sell for that price range that it would really be hard to justify so much on the accessories here for the same cost of simply buying the better costume instead…

As this costume looks in the package, I’ll give it three out of four pitchforks…

Accessories and optional extras notwithstanding… Though really there isn’t much choice that they have to be there to make it the complete look…

    Basically, they want you to pay $85.00 US for a sequined bathing suit and a pair of horns. Unless each of those sequins was hand-crafted by Italian glass blowers and hand-sewn by a team of tailors, it is a rip-off. And, clearly, you could design a better costume in five minutes.
