A Medieval Costume with horns is not a Succubus Costume

Devil Woman's CostumeOnce again it seems that there must be a vast warehouse of overstocked costumes and accessories that need to be cleared out to make way for more tacky ones to hurt the eyes of the unwary.

Why is it that when a pair of horns is added to anything that is red in colour it immediately must be “hot” and “devilish”? For that matter, why must such things just look so tacky?

This is called, and yes, it sounds wrong and looks wrong, the Devil Woman’s Costume. It comes with the dress, the pincer horns and supposedly there is a tail and a pitchfork as well, though there is no clue as to what that looks like. Boots are not included and it sells for $30 US.

I’m not really sure that the costume is exactly as it has been described, mostly because the description isn’t clear on the costume itself, if that rather sad looking cape is part of this mess, or not.

I have the feeling that this costume is more of a mash up of a medieval princess and a devil, but certainly not a succubus by any means.

After all, there’s far too much fluff.

One pitchfork out of five.

I suppose I like the boots, not anything else really…

    To the costumers’ credit, they did not claim it was a succubus costume. And, as i have said before, devils clearly have no dress sense–that might be another piece of potential story material . . .
