Halloween costumes aren't known for exactly being fashionable or appropriate but this may be a new low. You can now dress up like Kim Kardashian — getting robbed.
The Parisian Heist Robbery Victim Costume Kit is inspired by the reality star's recent robbery in Paris. It features a white robe, black wig, and sunglasses as well as a gag, rope and large ring (which is meant to look like Kim's $4 million version).
Costumeish, the site that sells the costume, doesn't name Kim specifically (likely for legal reasons) but describes the tacky outfit as this: “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.”
The costume has come under controversy for going too far. Costumeish founder and Vice President Jonathon Weeks defends his brand. “It’ll make people either cringe or laugh," he says to Time. “I don’t want to make light of a serious situation. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. No one really deserves to go through what she did. We’re not mocking her.”
Too far or just a joke? What do you think of the Kim Kardashian robbery costume?
