Succubi Image of the Week 528

There are, from time to time, art of succubi in which the background and what’s going on around the succubus is as interesting as she is. For this week’s succubi, an image in which the succubus herself tells a story, but then so does the rest of the picture being painted. Her name is Shiklah and, at one time, she was intimately connected with Deadpool in that comic book series. For me, it’s what hasn’t been told about her that’s as interesting as what has been.

This work is by the artist Candra on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this art here and this artist’s page can be found on DeviantArt here as well.

Overall, I think this is one of the most amazing images of Shiklah that I have found. She’s powerful, seductive and it feels like there’s a lot of her character coming out in this work. Lovely eyes, her pursed lips are just right. A pose that offers so much to see of her, and yet the balance of the story is also told by the little creature she’s petting and the chaos that is swirling around her.

I have to say I was a bit disappointed in her character arc. Perhaps that’s something to ponder about sometime. That said, this art is a delightful portrait of a succubus of power, unafraid of who she is and what she can do.

At least you’ll be warm in this costume if nothing else…

Let's Heat Things Up CostumeSometimes 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…

Succubi Image of the Week 527

There is a game called Summoner’s War, which I haven’t played and really know nothing about. That said, there is a succubus in the game, her name is… Aria. While she isn’t the Aria I know and love… the idea makes me smile and so, for this week’s succubi, there really wasn’t any other choice…

This work is by the artist dessian6085 on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this artist’s work here and their page on DeviantArt here as well.

Delightfully cute, the artist has created something wonderful here which I think looks so much better than what the game itself shows. I do like the touch of her holding a flower and her expression, both in smile and the twinkle in her eyes, is just amazing.

The headwings are a bit of a bother, as they are for me, but overall I like her look, her pose and it’s a lovely expression of her character by far.

My you have big horns… and lousy hair…

Red and Black Wig With HornsAnother in the long running series of wigs with horns that make me cringe. This time it’s not just the horns, the lousy looking hair or even how tacky the entire thing looks. Somehow the expression this model has just takes this wig into the stratosphere of tackiness…

This really doesn’t have a name, it’s just described as a red and black wig with horns and it sells for $27 US on the sites I found it on.

I just find this really tacky and that’s saying something. I’ve come across wigs that are just really lousy or over the top, but this is the sort of thing that makes me cringe.

Mind you, the idea of the model getting out of bed and looking like this makes me laugh, so that something.

Still, the horns are silly and over the top, the hairstyle is a complete disaster area and while I sort of see the reason for that, it doesn’t mean I have to like this much, if at all…

One pitchfork out of five.

I’m being a little generous here, but really I’ve come to realize that putting red highlights in my hair and wearing some really good looking horns goes a lot further than anything like this ever could.

A Tempting Succubus Design YouTube…

I do love the artwork created by the artist known as Reiq. They’ve shared some delightfully sexy succubi among other delights and it’s always fun to discover something I hadn’t found before. Today on the Tale, a YouTube of the artist creating a succubus character, on an iPad mind you, which I think is amazing.


If you cannot see this video here on the Tale, please try this link.

As always, in case the video disappears, here’s a screenshot of the completed art as well.

I get the most striking scifi vibe from this succubus character in a lot of ways. Those chunky heels for one, her interesting bodysuit, which as an aside would make for quite the distracting spacesuit I think. There’s a neat regal look to her as well, a presence, and that brings to mind a scifi epic about a succubus invasion of some sort.

While I ponder that idea, that tail of hers is a bit odd, but with her overall look it does work and I like it far better having thought about it a bit, that I did at first. One of the more unique succubi and one that is just really something to think about.

Succubi Image of the Week 526

For this week’s succubi… one who’s choice of clothing leaves so very little to the imagination and yet is so delightfully a tease. Perhaps in that comes, if one thinks about it, one of the powers of succubi?

This work is by the artist Geirahod on Deviant art of the original succubus character Melfina. You can find the original page where I found this artwork here on DeviantArt.

Lovely detail in this art, her eyes are quite a contrast from her seductive look and I think that works quite well overall. As well, the contrast of the gold gilt against her greyish skin lets a lot of detail comes through. Lovely hair, again, her eyes are quite striking, but I would have liked her wings not to be torn… I think that somehow looks a bit odd.

An interesting succubus, one of the rarer concepts in which there’s a hint of Arabian Nights in her character. It’s an interesting thought in that.

Sparkly can be sexy…

Sparkly She Devil CostumeSometimes all you need for a succubus costume is a pair of sexy red heels, a pair of horns, a tail and a dress that isn’t tacky. Occasionally I find something that takes an attempt at managing this, and sometimes it works. But then I find myself thinking that I have something far better than this in my collection of sexy dresses already and wonder why it is that they couldn’t find one sexier?

This is called the Sparkly She-Devil Costume and it comes with a really shiny dress and a pair of horns that aren’t too trashy and a tail that’s cute, if a little poorly made, at least for my taste. Shoes are not included and it sells for $45 US on the two sites I found it on.

The dress isn’t all that awful really, though how the tail is attached, and what that looks like, is really disappointing. It’s really just a minidress with a tail stapled on and a pair of horns shoved into the packaging. Te dress looks a little too plastic-ish, and really I’d be more inclined to try this overall idea with a red latex dress, thigh-highs and a really nice set of horns.

I think there’s something here in a “last choice on the shelf” idea, but really you’d get the same thing from picking out a sexy dress and putting a nice pair of horns with it.

Sometimes the sexy isn’t just in the look, after all, but the attitude.

Two and a half out of five pitchforks.

It’s a start, a thought, an idea. But could be more given a little more effort overall.
