One of the things that I have, I admit, thought about as a costume is a sort of superhero Succubi thing. Now I’ve never been able to work out something that looks sexy, isn’t silly, but has that “thing” about it that makes it work. That doesn’t mean of course that someone hasn’t tried… sort of.
This is called the Fierce Flame Sexy Devil Costume and it comes with the metallic mock neck bodysuit with contrast flames and the gauntlets. The boots are not included and it sells for $79 US. Adding the boots would send the price of this costume to $150 US.
I notice that there aren’t any horns, nor a tail with this costume and as such I think it’s a really lame attempt to stick a devil tag onto what otherwise is a rather unimpressive superhero costume.
Just because a costume has some flame sewn onto it does not, at all, make it anything like a Succubus costume, nor a devilish one for that matter.
There is a certain kitsch to this mess I suppose and perhaps it will be appealing to someone, but for myself I just can’t see this working at all. Even adding a set of horns, or a pitchfork for that matter, probably would result in having to answer questions about just what exactly you are supposed to be?
There has to be some sort of way to create something in a superhero theme that isn’t a compete disaster like this is. Thinking about this a moment, it probably would work with something as simple as a black corset, skimpy bikini bottom, thigh high boots and a pair of horns… I’m sure that particular idea tells some that follow comic books exactly which well known character I am thinking of… But it isn’t this thing.
Zero pitchforks out of five.
Not even close to a devil costume and so far away from being one of a Succubus that it isn’t worth mentioning…
