BlackLace unveiled the Belial: Red Leather Devil Costume at their
Halloween line launch show at the Runway Cafe on 10 October. I was teased with it in the announcement notecard and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. What can I say? I put this on a week and a half before Halloween and I’ve been wearing it ever since!

I’ve loved BlackLace’s products ever since the first time I set foot in their store and every time I go back, there’s something new to fall in love with. Belial is no exception and it honours their high standard of quality.

The lingerie is a saucy leather strap affair, practically a harness-turned-teddy by the addition of some of the best sheer fabric texturing I’ve seen. While it’s naughty enough to skirt the edge of fetish, it still retains the mystique of lingerie in a perfect balance.

Although the extra parts were included to complete the outfit, I never expect extras to measure up as well as products where the designer specializes in, say, horns or boots. The ones provided were decent, but were ultimately supplanted by products from Illusions and Bax Coen, respectively. The wings were pretty good and I opted not to search for alternatives.

What’s “Just Right”: The whole combo just works together. Even with the included horns and boots, it looks unified with each piece complementing the others. It manages to make someone terminally saccharine in appearance look even mildly sultry, so kudos to BlackLace on that! My favourite part of the whole outfit is the sheer textures in the teddy and the stockings. The highlights and shadows and hints of red are just right.

What Could Use Improvement: Speaking directly to the lingerie, I would have liked to see leather straps that weren’t quite as glossy. The effect seemed a little less realistic to me, though the complaint is really like quibbling over whether one brand of caviar is better than another. I would have liked to see some kind of boning in the teddy to match the rear garter straps; they just seem structurally odd where they are currently placed.

Pieces: 26; 10 clothing, 16 prim, plus 7 non-clothing objects

Ratings:
Detailing: A- Fabulous job altogether, extra impressed with the highlights and shadows on the sheer parts, but the leather straps could stand to have slightly improved textures to give it a more realistic appearance
Prim Attachments: Wings, Horns (not shown), Pendant, Bangles, Charm Bracelets (not shown), Boots (not shown)
Resizing Scripts: There are resizer scripts in all of the prim attachments except the pendant
Permissions: No Copy, No Modify, Transfer; the prims (except boots) have limited Modify permissions, although they appear to be No Modify due to the scripts’ permissions
Tattoo Friendly: Yes; you just need to be careful which layers you select as some will overlap with others and you’ll end up with lighter/darker sections of sheer fabric
Curvy Girl Friendly: Yes
