Sometimes I’m not sure if I’ve found a costume or something that’s trying to be a costume, but isn’t succeeding. Case in point this week with this lovely example of something that isn’t sexy, doesn’t have much going for it, and one other thing. The image doesn’t tell the truth and in doing so just makes the entire thing look worse still.
This is called the Let’s Heat Things Up Costume and it comes with the bodysuit and the horns. That’s all. The tail, stockings, boots and pitchfork are not included and what’s more concerning is that this uninspiring mess sells for $89 US, but you can find it for a mere $65 on sale sometimes.
It’s just so very plain, not sexy, doesn’t have a lot going for it really at all. It’s sort of like a jumper and not much else, even the horns are the lousy ones with bits of fluff attached to them.
What’s more disappointing is that the accessories appear like they are part of this, but they aren’t and if you did collect them all, this entire disaster would cost upwards of $155 US.
Now, much of that is in the boots of course, which as a complete tangent I rather like, but there are so many other costumes at that price level that look better and have so much more going for them that there’s no point in putting something like this together.
Half a pitchfork out of five, and that’s only because of the boots.
Nothing here, the sexy didn’t make it to the design meeting it seems, and it would have been nice if they’d at least put her horns on straight before the photo shoot happened…
