Online retailer Costumeish has set a new gold standard for offensive Halloween costumes with their introduction of the "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit," an outfit meant to make the wearer look like Kim Kardashian when she was robbed at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room. This gleeful depiction of the most terrifying moment in her life is sure to make even the most hardened Kardashian haters balk (unless they have no soul left at all).
The costume sells for $70 (What?) and if that 1000% markup doesn't offend you, the description from Costumeish's website definitely will:
This Halloween it's all about the #Hallomeme and who better than America's goddess of all things glamorous "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume?" She has devoted her life to promoting American decadence, youth, and hedonism but all that flashy living caught up with her one night in Paris when armed men bound her, stole her jewelry and her peace of mind. This Halloween have some fun with pop culture and dress just like the Queen of Social media with our sensational "Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume" Costume.
-White Short Sexy Robe
-Long Black Wig
-"$4 Million Dollar" Ring*
-2' of Rope
*Costume ring is made of plastic and not worth $4 million dollars.
That asterisk is a huge bummer. For a minute, I thought I was going to flip this costume for a $3,999,930 profit.
The reviews for this costume are mixed, to say the least.
How better for Big Mike to identify himself as a slut-shamer than to use the words "slut" and "shame" in the same sentence? And Monsieur Voleur may have thought he was very subtle with his Caitlyn Jenner joke at the end there, but of course that costume exists.
Halloween: the one day of the year when it's acceptable to dress up as lame, crass, outdated pop culture jokes. Bonus points if they shame victims or trans people.
