Succubi Image of the Week 602

One artist that I have been following on DeviantArt for some time is John Gate. From time to time he’s shared some well done succubus stories among the other 3D fantasy art that he creates. An image then this week on the Tale of one of this artist’s succubi that is lovely, seductive and dangerous…

You can find the original page on DeviantArt where I found this image here and John’s artist page can be found on DeviantArt here.

You can also find John’s Blogspot here.

This work is part of a series about this succubus character which tells a wonderful story of seduction, domination and submission. As all of John’s succubi, the art is wonderful, the story is well told and there’s a good balance of evil and sexy that I do enjoy.

A sexy form, her eyes are perfect for her as well. Amazing hair texture, her outfit really works for her and while her wings I am not that thrilled by, her tail is delightful.

Visit John’s Blogspot for some well told and illustrated succubi stories!

It’s not the worst vinyl Devil costume I’ve seen…

Obviously there are a lot of costumes that appear on the Tale which are red in colour. Rare are the black ones, more so one that aren’t completely trashy or are missing that little bit of sexy that’s dearly needed. Sometimes one appears where I can kind of see what the creator was going for… and they almost did it right.

Heavy Metal Devil Costume

This is called the Heavy Metal Devil Costume and it comes with the black wet dress, spiked harness, spiked straps, a netted petticoat underlayer, the set of devil horns, the gloves, a removable tail and the black choker. The thigh highs, riding crop and shoes are not included and it sells for $80 US. Adding the shoes, thigh highs and crop would bring this entire look to $150 US.

The first thing that bothers me is that the horns have… spikes on the strap. That just looks ugly on its own and I can’t understand why it was decided to add the spikes there as well. It makes no sense and just doesn’t work. While the horns themselves are a bit oversized, they more or less would work save for those ugly spikes.

The tail is a bit… limp. It’s not the worst, but could use some improvement. It even might make the overall look better to add a red tail and horns instead of what’s included for the sake of adding some contrast. The dress and harness and choker aren’t bad, but, again, the spikes are a bit overdone really.

I’m a bit concerned on the quality of the dress as well as the image seems to have a lot of threads dangling from the hem. That might mean some quick trimming could be needed. The gloves are a bit too short, they need to at least get past one’s palms, they just look like they’re one size too small.

Overall, the idea isn’t bad, it’s the little details that trip this costume up.

Two pitchforks out of five.

It might be a place to start, but beyond that this needs some help to be what it should be.

Succubi Image of the Week 601

I find it interesting to see the concepts that artists create about Succubi. Often there’s a mix of cultural ideas and themes which create truly unique succubi. This week’s image is one in which that air of mixture I think comes through very well.

The contrast between red and black in this art is really well done, I also think that multiple eyes this succubus has reminds me of some otherworldly aspects which really go well together. Her horns work well overall, lovely tail and her expression is thoughtful which appeals to be.

Lovely succubi art and ever so unique too…

Accessories, thy name is cheap and tacky

Every now and again I mull over various accessories to add to a devil girl costume. I’m not saying a Succubi one because in almost every case the item is cheap, tacky and I wouldn’t consider it at all. That said, there is a certain amount of disbelief that comes with the discovery and so they appear here.

Devil Horns and Tail Set

This is simply called the Devil Horns and Tail Set and it comes with.. well.. the hot mess you see here and it sells for between $8 and $10 US.

The level of cheap and tacky cannot be understated here. I especially cringe at the “Totally Ghoul” name brand, which is a play on words that should result in a severe pitchforking for whomever came up with it.

Fuzzy horns do not impress me, soft plastic horns and tail that look like they are inflated aren’t endearing either. I can, to a point, accept this as being for younger devils, but the way this is marketed seems to drive the point home that you need this to “get their attention.”

Perhaps in others doubling over in laughter at the best or at the worst being pointed at for how awful this would make one look. This is the sort of accessory found in the clearance bin at the back of the store where it has been languishing for the past ten years.

It’s unimpressive, it’s a waste of material and, honestly, I can’t see why anyone would pick something like this when there are other horns and tail, sold separately mind you, which look better.

Not perfect mind you, but far better than this mess.

Succubi Image of the Week 600

It’s the 600th Succubi Image of the Week and being so I’m going to be a little self-indulgent… Over the past while I’ve been supporting the art of Doc000 on Patreon, you can also find their DeviantArt page here and their NewGrounds page is here as well.

I asked for some 3D art of my Succubi Queen self to be created and the Doc kindly has been creating some wonderful art for me…

And so… for the 600th image…

Let me tell you a story…

One of the most difficult things to get right is, of course, the Queen’s bemused smile… I’m so delighted that Doc was able to bring that out and create one of my most favourite works of the Queen of the Realm…

Vile is perhaps a bit too much for this devil costume

I’ve commented from time to time as to the names of some costumes. How they don’t seem to match up well, or come close to describing the costume itself. I stumbled across this week’s disaster and… I find it a bit difficult to argue with the name… as you will see…

Vile Vixen Costume

his is called the Vile Vixen Costume and it comes with a red faux leather bodysuit with a sheer mesh bust and a red devil horn headband. The whip and shoes the model is wearing are not included and it sells for $78 US.

I don’t care for the horns, they look lousy, the whip is one that has appeared before and it really adds nothing to the overall look anyway. The bodysuit really isn’t too terrible, but the horns that come with it just don’t work at all.

It is an interesting idea, I don’t think I’d call it vile however. That said, using a better set of horns would add a lot. Beyond that however, there’s really nothing you can add to this as the bodysuit overwhelms any sort of additions to the look.

I might consider breaking things up with a black belt and boots, but that’s really not going to do a lot to improve this, and that’s really the main issue here.

The costume is limiting in too many ways. There’s no way to use some imagination to make things look better as a whole, whip or pitchfork not adding anything, different shoes or boots just not doing a thing either.

Two pitchforks out of five.

I’m being rather generous here, but that’s mainly for the effort in making the bodysuit what it is.

Succubi Image of the Week 599

I’ve mentioned, from time to time, that the Warcraft succubus isn’t one of my favourites and that’s mainly to her hooves which really bother me a lot. I found a work of art which is based in the Warcraft universe of a succubus character, and I have to say that, honestly, this concept really appeals to me in a lot of ways…

The Succubus by Felox08

The Succubus by Felox08

This art is the work of the artist Felox08 on DeviantArt and you can find the original page with this work here and this artist’s page can be found here on DeviantArt as well.

There’s clearly some little touches to this character of the Warcraft succubus, but it isn’t overstated and really this is a character onto herself. I like the change from hooves to something far less so, there’s still purpose to her feet, they aren’t just there for looks by any means. Lovely tail, her wings being torn very little looks lovely too. Her “armour” is exactly right for her, wonderful expression and pose as well. I especially love her expression, her wild mane of hair and there’s a wonderful sense of seduction and power which just works perfectly here.

Overall, she’s a far better succubus than the original one in Warcraft, and it was a delight to discover her.
