Tacky is the nemesis of all Devil costumes. It can take the worst costume and push it into the realm of disastrous. Which brings up a question. Why is it that costume designers find it is necessary to label, in big shiny letters, what the costume is suppose to be “saying”?
Probably I think it’s because they know the costume cannot say it… No matter how hard one looks.
This… thing… is called the Devil Woman Carnival Costume and it comes with the top, pants, gloves and horns. The pitchfork, shoes and stockings are not included, not that they make any difference at all. The amazing thing is that this awful mess sells for the amazing price of $125 US.
No, I am not joking. This entire thing, model’s expression included, is so far into trashy that it might create a black hole. That might not be a bad thing actually considering, but before it vanishes, we have to deal with looking at a costume upon which, written over one’s bust, is the word… hot.
It wasn’t enough to make a costume that looks trashy. It wasn’t enough to add fringe to it that makes that worse. It wasn’t enough to add armlets with fringes to bump the trashiness to new heights…
No, now we have to add the word “hot” to a costume that is anything but “hot” and in doing so make the woman that wears it, and I feel sorry for any that have, do, or are considering, be anything but hot.
A complete miss which gets worse for the addition of a single word in shiny letters…
Zero pitchforks out of five.
I cannot believe that someone thought this was a good idea…
