It’s so nice when a costume isn’t named well, has not a lot going for it, uses a terrible pitchfork and has a pair of horns that are one of the ones I dislike so very much. Add some frills and my sarcasm really gets going…
This is called the Gothic Devil Costume and it comes with the dressabd horns and the pitchfork the model is holding. Shoes are not included and it sells on various sites for $30 US.
Trashy is, I think, giving this a compliment, so if you like trashy then you might like this. As for me, I don’t like the entire look, the frills do nothing for me, the “sort-of” lace looks ugly, the pitchfork and horns do not endear themselves to me either.
There’s no possible way to save this mess, to make it something decent, or even partly that. There’s just an air of “thrown-together” about this costume and that never works for me.
Not even the slight shine in the dress helps any because that red frill along the bottom just makes me think of ballerina, which it shouldn’t. Or a Santa’s helper, which also isn’t a good idea.
Is it really that much effort to make a costume look, if not seductive, at least nice?
Sometimes I wonder about that… Actually more than sometimes for those that have been following my search through the lows of mass produced costumes. Perhaps I need to look to more custom creations… But that can be a problem at times as well.
I’ll give this one pitchfork out of five.
It is a costume, but otherwise there’s nothing much to say…
