Why is it that so many costumes cannot manage to have an inkling of what sexy is, never mind seductive. It isn’t that difficult to create a dress that shapes well to one’s body. It isn’t that hard to make a set of horns that look reasonably good. So why is it that so many costumes get off the rails so often?
This is called the Devil Delight Costume and it comes with the dress and the sad looking horns this model is wearing. It normally sells for about $35 US, but there are a lot of sales for this costume at the moment and it can be found for as little as $15 US.
This is a rather plain looking dress as a whole, and for some reason the little black accent around the top makes this look, in a way, like one of the uniforms from the classic Star Trek series…
Which then makes me ponder a Succubi In Space story, but that’s another entry in the Tale for another time.
Getting back to this, the ad copy mentions: “…you can really turn up the heat with a pair of our red fishnet stockings and sleek, sexy shoes!”
And… no. No you can’t because the shoes and the stockings aren’t all that much better than this poor excuse for a costume in the first place.
In all honesty, I could see this as a “Star Trek” costume more than a devilish one, not that would be all that much better.
There’s really nothing I like about this dress, save the story idea I have gotten mind you. It’s bland, there’s no style to speak of. Bland is not sexy, no matter how short the outfit is and how much leg one shows.
Zero pitchforks out of five.
