Sometimes I think about taking one costume idea and changing it a bit to make it a little more Succubi-like. Sometimes that’s not easy to do, sometimes it isn’t. And sometimes I just have to stare and wonder…
This is called the Angel of Darkness Costume and it comes with a stretchy black dress, belt, black halo headband made of feathers, fingerless gloves, a choker, and feather wings that go from black to red.
It sells for what I think is a fairly reasonable $50 US on the web and overall for what is included that seems to be a fairly good deal.
You still need, however, to find the boots the model is wearing, they don’t come with the costume.
I do, I have to admit. like the dress and the wings really are interesting in their own right. The halo doesn’t do much for me, nor the choker, and the gloves really should be a lot more shiny than they are. But as a whole, there is something overall that I do like about this costume and it might make for the place to start for something a bit more… Succubish.
Obviously there needs to be a pair of red horns, a red tail, and those gloves need to changed to something that matches the dress at least. I do think that latex stockings and some shiny black heels would work better with the dress than the boots as well.
I think as sort of a “last minute” thing this could work well as something one of the Succubi might wear and it is something for me to ponder in that way. I might not ever actually wear this exactly, but it is an interesting place to start and sometimes that’s worth more than the costume itself.
I’ll give this three and a half out of five pitchforks.
It’s a good place to start, all it needs is the right touch of red in the right places…
