Why call the costume Darling when it clearly is not

Darling Devil CostumeIt seems like every week the costumes are becoming more and more disappointing. I wonder if that is a reflection of the lack of imagination, the stresses of having to do more with less, or, and I hope it isn’t, simply that they are giving up the concept of making something that looks even halfway sexy or seductive… That’s a shame whichever it is.

This is called the Darling Devil Costume and it comes with the black and red mini dress with the horrific jagged cut hemline, cut out sleeves, sequin wings and a sequin horn headband.

There is no tail, the shoes are not included and it sells for $42 US on various sites.

The first thing that I thought, after just how horrific this costume is, was if the model had taken a knife to the costume and cut it in an attempt to kill it before the picture was taken.

The entire ensemble is just horrid to the point that words fail me. Not that I’m not gong to still try to put into words how stomach turning, headache creating, eye waveringly bad this costume is.

If I didn’t know better I would think that a group of grade schoolers were given a few sheets of bristol board and told to make a costume from it.

Calling this trashy would be a compliment, so perhaps calling this fertilizer would be somewhat more to the point?

There’s no possible way to make this look decent, be decent, or even take the vaguest attempt at being sexy in any way, shape or form.

There is better than this… Even last week’s disaster had a little bit more respectability to be seen and that was microscopic I know.

Zero out of five pitchforks.

Mebby next week’s costume will be, finally, something half decent.

We’ll see.

    Why call it “Daring” when it is not? Because I am pretty sure “Dull Devil Costume” wouldn’t sell nearly so well.

    And a group of grade schoolers would be much more creative than this.

    You know… That’s a thought…
