These aren’t horns… they are ears…

Dreamgirl Devil Costume KitI find myself wondering why it is that costume companies cannot figure out just what a pair of horns looks like. It cannot be that hard to make a decent pair of horns, but time and time again I am proven wrong it seems. But really, why is it so hard?

This is simply an accessory set that consists of the… I hesitate to call them horns… and the tail. It sells for about $10 US.

I’m not exactly sure what those horns are supposed to be really. Bunny ears? Pinchers? Cell phone antennas or something? The tail isn’t any better and like most tails you can’t tell how it’s attached, what that looks like, and how ugly it might be.

So a lot of questions left unanswered as seems to be the normal thing with costumes.

I’m not really looking to improve this, really it can’t be done. I’m using this as an example of some of the poor design choices made so often when it comes to creating two of the most important things in a devil costume.

Without good looking horns and a tail, there comes only a disaster. Even with them, a lousy costume cannot be improved. Nonetheless, some effort needs to be made in creating a decent looking set of horns and a tail.

Otherwise, what’s the point anyway?

As for this?

Zero pitchforks out of five.

The dress is nice though…

    The horns have to do with rays of light–an aspect of an aura–according to ancient Latin. These look more like my dog’s ears if she got sunburnt . . .
