Through it be but springtime, with the recent publication of our Kelsey Olson <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/" target="_blank">interview</a> (in which the topic of Hallowe'en campaigns came up), seasonal costumes are already on everyone's mind.

In fact, the first costume collections of the Hallowe'en 2010 season have already surfaced. No one is quite sure of the name of the company that produces these outfits, for it is hard to distinguish manufacturers from distributors. "Rubie's," "California Costumes," and "Costume Craze" have all been advanced as possible names from the original producers. But whatever the source, the company's taste in models is exceptional.

Although no other model even comes close to achieving Kelsey's brilliance in this genre, we are delighted to see that one of the first 2010 costume images features the gorgeous <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly.htm" target="_blank">Kelly S.</a> (Images Mangement, New York). Kelly has appeared in numerous <i>Seventeen</i> magazine editorials and in Fashion Bug campaigns, but never has she looked as tantalizing as she does in this diabolical Hallowe'en outfit. Notice in particular the sinful swell of her luscious midsection. Kelly must have succumbed to the most delectable temptations to acquire such a shapely, rounded physique.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies01c.jpg"></center><p>Surely Kelly's form is the true incarnation that Mephistopheles adopted when the devil appeared to Dr. Faust, prompting the necromancer to sell his soul to the infernal powers,<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/faust01.jpg"></center><p>for who could resist bartering away one's everlasting salvation at the entreaty of such a comely demon?<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies01e.jpg"></center><p>No temptress was ever so irresistible as this bewitching young girl. The outfit clings to her wicked curves, and the collar trim frames the soft fullness of her neck and facial features.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies01h.jpg"></center><p>Her dark, mysterious eyes identify her as a Princess of Darkness, while her ruby lips, passionately parted, promise felonious rewards should one succumb to her infernal charms. Yet observe the exquisite loveliness of her facial features--as plump and full as a ripe peach.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies01f.jpg"></center><p>Note too the soft roundness of her neck and shoulder area. She appears so young, so innocent, that this devil must, in fact, be a fallen angel only recently expelled from Paradise, who therefore still possesses her heavenly facial features, which render her all the more alluring and irresistible.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies01g.jpg"></center><p>Kelly is a stunningly gorgeous 20-year-old young model who emphatically deserves greater prominence in the industry. We hope to see more of her in the near future.

Perdition itself would be none too dreadful a fate if it were peopled by devils as beautiful as she.

<br>Let no one underestimate the potential value of costume campaigns. Although the clothing that they promote is occasional and disposable rather than practical, their imagery is often admirably size-positive. Hallowe'en promotions can excite the imagination, displaying a plus-size model's beauty in unique ways that nothing short of full-fledged fantasy editorials can otherwise manage. And since fantasy editorials with legitimately curvaceous models are exceedingly rare, costume campaigns fill a significant lacuna in the promotion of plus-size beauty.

Case in point: Kelly S.'s promotion for Hallowe'en 2010, which is the topic of this thread.

In the previous post, we noted the allure of her satanically seductive devil image, and now we have discovered a second exciting photograph from this campaign. It shows her, ironically, as a flapper from the 1920s--the original anti-plus era, the first period in Western history when women everywhere adopted androgynous looks and hairstyles. This unfavourable historical context makes it all the more remarkable how gorgeous Kelly manages to appear in this outfit, transcending the limitations of the apparel and creating an extremely eye-catching picture.<p><center><a href="http://www.costumecraze.com/FLAP105.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies02b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The dress merely skims the body, failing to disclose her luscious curves. The hairstyle (only a wig, thank heavens) is tragically short--indicating that Kelly should never, ever cut her magnificent brunette tresses. But all of that doesn't matter, because what immediately seizes the viewer's attention upon glancing at this image is the plump fullness of Kelly's neck-and-shoulder area, as well as her soft, rounded arms. Kelly has a <i>fed</I> look about her that is utterly captivating. She appears to be free of any unattractive muscle tone, her opulence due entirely to natural self-indulgence. Her fleshy look in this image, as well as in the devil picture above, represents the most attractive that she has ever appeared. Her sumptuousness provides an admirable example to the many young girls who idolize her that they do <i>not</I> need to starve themselves, or torture themselves in gym prisons, but can eat whatever they like, and as much as they like.<p><center><a href="http://www.costumecraze.com/FLAP105.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies02.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Brightening the image erases some of the lovely detail of Kelly's soft person, but offers a better view of her dress. Alas, the outfit doesn't define her figure as well as fans wish it would, but Kelly's expert pose saucily indicates the <i>rondeur</i> of her womanly hips. Thanks to her curve-accentuating stance and generous figure, Kelly endows this outfit with an attractive shape, despite the fact that the flapper style was originally intended to rob women of their curves.<p><center><a href="http://www.costumecraze.com/FLAP105.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelly/rubies02a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Kelly S. is easily one of the most talented and appealing girls in the industry. She is also one of the most gorgeous plus-size models, especially when she is at her curviest. This costume campaign (presumably for Rubie's) represents some of her best work to date, and fans eagerly look forward to seeing what other flights of fancy Kelly's Hallowe'en outfits will inspire.
