Costume thy name is tacky

Feisty Hell Bound Devil CostumeHalloween is just past and so we return to the vast numbers of tacky costumes that are appearing on sale now. Now, just because the costume is on sale doesn’t mean it is worth buying however. There can be so many things wrong with a particular costume on offer and the next few weeks will be prime examples of that…

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you. This is the image that is attached to the site where I found this disaster which, I think, is very telling.

This is called the Feisty Hell Bound Devil Costume and it comes with the horns, the rather tacky looking dress and the sleevelets that model is wearing. The shoes, stockings and I think the model is holding a pitchfork, but that’s not included as well. It sells for $20 US on sale on the site I found it on.

This is one of the most tacky, unfinished looking costumes that I have found by far. There’s nothing sexy or seductive, if there is I can’t see it myself. Nothing here appeals to me, I wouldn’t consider this disaster if it was the last thing sitting on the shelf… which it probably is.

The model’s expression I think sums up things really well, she doesn’t look at all happy about appearing in this mistake.

The theme of shredded costumes, or ones that look like they were thrown together at the last moment, isn’t something that I like or enjoy. Looking seductive needs a certain look and this costume doesn’t have that.

I can’t see anyway to make this better, and honestly one would be better off with a flattering dress, heels and a pair of horns. At least you’d be able to say you tried. This says you didn’t try and you didn’t care either.

Zero pitchforks out of five.

Terrible is an understatement by far.

    The one who was Hellbound in this situation was, clearly, the costume designer.

    One down, fifty-one to go . . .
