So close and yet the tail is so, so wrong…

Hell's Angel CostumeIt amazes me at times how costumes can be designed to be sexy, to have a look that’s deliciously seductive and yet there’s that one little thing, at least for me, that is completely disappointing.

More so, and perhaps more to the point, why is it that the perfect look shown always needs things that are not included?

Poor horns are expected. A poor tail as well make me roll my eyes…

This is called the Hell’s Angel Costume and it comes with the spandex romper, garters, that… tail, black feather wings.. which you can’t see here, and that awful pair of black horns. The stockings, gloves and shoes are not included and it sells for between $50 and $80 US. Adding the stockings, gloves and shoes would push the cost of this costume to $150 US.

Honestly I love the overall look of the costume, but the horns are really poor. But it’s the tail that bothers me more. That looks very much like a cat tail, not a succubus one. Where is the spade or heat shaped tip? It just looks wrong and with the horns the costume, sexy though it is, becomes confusing to me.

The horns have to go, as does the tail if I was to consider this. I’d use one of my red horns and one of my better, far better, red tails with this. I think that would be delicious…

I’d love to give this four pitchforks, but that tail and those horns?

Three out of five pitchforks.

It came so close, it’s a shame that it couldn’t get that little bit more…
