A red dress does a Succubus costume not make…

Red Carpet Devil CostumeSometimes a simple red dress can make for a lovely start to a Succubus costume… My Eternal can tell you about the very first dress he saw me wear with my very first pair of horns… It can be a show stopper in the right way… or the wrong way… The question is, for this costume at least, which end of the scale does it fall on?

This is called the Red Carpet Devil Costume and it comes with the long red dress with high double slits and the matching sequin horns. The pitchfork, which is lousy, is not included nor are the shoes… It sells for $65 US but can be found for as little as $35 on sale occasionally…

It isn’t totally awful I have to admit, there is a certain tiny bit of class to this costume that I don’t see very often. I can even stand the hem of the dress as it isn’t totally silly by being ripped or torn into pieces.

If I look at the entire ensemble, the necklace, bracelets and shoes, and ignore the pitchfork… It’s not all that bad and for something to quickly wear for Halloween if I had little time I would give this some serious thought.

But I don’t like the strapping around the waist, that ruins the look for me and makes me wonder if this was some kind of Greek goddess costume that they dyed red in order to sell it as a Devil costume… That would sort of make some kind of sense really…

Still I do like this and so it receives three out of five pitchforks.

But it doesn’t come close to the red dress that helped me to win my Eternal’s heart…

    The red dress–and the wardrobe choice you made–got your Eternal’s attention. She Who Was Inside It, and everything that makes her us, won his heart.

    As for the costume: hasn’t it been established in the Tale that sparkly horns are always a bad idea?

    Long time ago yes my heart they have been… As for the one red dress that matters… It always does…

    I should have written “everything that makes her up” . . . then my comment would make sense.
