A costume that is masquerading as a Devil and isn’t…

Devil Masquerade CostumeI rather like going to masquerades and the right costume for them, to me, is very important. However, sometimes the costumes that suggest that they might be for such things are never quite that which they claim to be.

This is called the Devil Masquerade Costume and it comes with the dress, panniers, the gloves and that’s all. It sells for $65 US.

Did you notice what’s missing?

A pair of horns for one thing. And some tastefulness for the other. It’s quite the train wreck really, looking very unfinished and really unflattering I think. But there is something else missing that’s rather important as well.

There is no mask either.

So, in truth, what this really represents is a collection of other items you are supposed to purchase in order to attain this level of tackiness…

Not that you would want to I think.

I would have a far better costume by finding one of my strapless dresses, a pair of horns, a tail, and a pair of kitten heels…. Oh, and a mask that I wouldn’t be holding in one hand all of the time either.

To say this entire concept needs help would be putting it mildly and honestly it is something that is better left behind on a costume search…

Zero pitchforks out of five.

However, on the plus side, I have given myself an idea for a…. special surprise for my Eternal so that has to be a good thing…

Or it will be…

    Your Majesty’s special surprises for Your Majesty’s Eternal are always a good thing, I think.

    I must say, with respect, that I actually kind of like hand-held masks sometimes. Of course, that made this the one part of this costume that I liked . . . and it isn’t actually part of the costume. Again, the devilish part is the attempt to get people to pay for this.

    Well . . . that and forcing this model to pose with what appears, by the positioning of her legs, to be a hip displacement.

    There must be a story that explains why costumes are just so awful so often…

    I still think it’s because alien bug people get jobs as costume designers and haven’t quite grasped how “sexy” or “classy” work for human beings.

    “The Succubus is the ideal of beauty? I see… Therefor it must have the largest mandibles! That way it can signal it’s dominance to males of the species! They are graceful like dancers?I must add a tutu immediately! Soon I shall be known as the greatest of the giant termite fashion designers!”

    I can’t decide if the pinchers are the threat or the tutu is really…
