As a Succubus Costume goes, this isn’t it…

In my ongoing search for a Succubus costume, I have seen the best and the worst of costume ideas that you can find on the web. I admit that the ratio is really very much in the favour of the lousy ones and, regrettably, this one will add to that.

Sexy Fancy Devil CostumeThis is, supposedly, called the Sexy Fancy Devil Costume and can be found online for $50 US… and I can’t say that I would want to pay even a quarter of that on this idea…

It comes with the dress with petticoat and attached tail, a boa and a pair of horns. The shoes are not included.

And not one piece of this excites me at all.

The boa looks lousy, the tail is ugly, and the horns are the ones that I hate the most of all. Why would you need black fringe on red horns? That makes no sense at all to me…

I see in this costume nothing sexy or Succubus-like at all in it. The model doesn’t help a lot either as she looks about as thrilled as I would be wearing this…

It brings me back to something that I have been wondering about and ranting over since I began looking at Succubus costumes…

Is it that hard to understand that they must be sexy?

I guess that for the most part it has to be secondary to some costume companies as I keep seeing them reuse various costumes, add a pair of horns or a tail and called them “devilish”.

They can, and should, do better than this.

This one gets a zero out of five pitchforks.

Leave it on the shelf and find something better please…
