These are rather expensive hooves…

I’ve mentioned at several times that I really don’t care for Succubi with hooves very much. Nonetheless, it is a trope of Succubi and some similar beings. I came across a YouTube of a pair of hoof boots that I thought were very well done. Then I understood why that was when I found where they were for sale and what they cost.

If you can’t see the video here on the Tale, try this link:

And here is an image of the boots in question:

As an accessory for a costume, I think they are very well done and look really nice. However there is a slight problem which comes when you look here and see what they are selling for.

It’s a little expensive for my tastes… I have nothing against the quality and obviously you get what you pay for. I’m not sure that I could justify the cost in this case…

Again, that’s my particular view of things… Hooves and all…

    Okay, Your Majesty doesn’t like the idea of succubi with hooves, so why would Your Majesty ever consider spending that kind of money for this costume accessory?

    For someone, however, who wishes to play out how a horse is a horse . . . of course!

    Meanwhile, going along with my growing suspicion that all succubi are not necessarily demonic: what if, as a succubus–or anyone–becomes more demonic, she or he becomes less human? Horns, tails, and wings might be enhancements, as they do not replace human bits. But maybe the replacement of feet is a first step toward demonic degeneration.

    Just a thought . . .

    So more inhuman features would mark a rougher and less civilized succubus? I think that could work, actually. Especially since the succubi with the most pronounced inhuman features tend to show up in works of fiction that are very combat heavy (the succubus from WoW and Morrigan tend to spring to mind).

    Well.. To be honest, at the time I saw this, I was pondering things a bit towards having a costume that was a bit more… “red” in tones… Since then I have changed my mind thankfully… As for the idea my heart… I think there’s a lot in that…
