I think, in a lot of ways, that sometimes the simplest costume ideas can overcome all of the manufactured tackiness that seems to be the standard for most costumes. In a lot of ways all it takes is a nice dress and a pair of horns and the right attitude to make things work… But it doesn’t, at least I think, take a cape…
This is the 4 Piece Sexy Red Devil Costume and it comes with the horns, the necklace, the cape and what I think is a rather nice looking minidress.
I found this combination on eBay and it was on sale for $40 US. I don’t think that is asking too much by far and really this has a lot going for it as a whole.
I like the dress a lot in that there isn’t anything tacky about it. The horns aren’t the best by far, and the necklace doesn’t do much for me either, but really the cape is the thing that bothers me the most.
I don’t quite see the point to a cape, at least in how I envision the way I like to look and as such I wouldn’t wear it, considering that I have a tail to wear of course.
Adding a pair of my better horns to the dress and a pair of red heels. the exact ones I would have to ponder a bit, I think would make this work really well.
But really the main thing is the dress, the rest is accessories and looking at the dress alone it gives me something to ponder and that’s always a good thing…
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
Something to ponder… and I will…
