An American costume shop called Costumeish is selling a Kim Kardashian ‘robbery victim’ Halloween outfit – and everyone’s of the opinion they’ve gone a bit too far with this it.
The costume consists of a black wig, large sunglasses, a fake overlarge ring (similar to the one she had stolen) and a ‘white short sexy robe.’
You think that’s bad? It only gets worse. Included in the ensemble is a two-foot rope and gag.
‘Sexy robbery victim’ attire might be pushing the boundaries of taste just a little bit.
Kardashian was attacked in Paris just over a week ago by five armed men, who tied her up and locked her in the bathroom before robbing her of several of her expensive possessions, including her engagement ring (which makes it confusing as to why that’s included in the costume).
Although the company has been careful not to mention Kardashian by name in the item’s description, it’s not exactly difficult for people to put two and two together.
Unsurprisingly, the costume has caused quite the stir on social media:
Someone made a 'Kim Kardashian robbery victim' costume for Halloween, I'd like to die and leave this planet for good, now.

Who decided to make a costume out of @KimKardashian's robbery? I don't even like her and know that's still not something to joke about

The controversial costume is being priced at £69.99 (about £56). We can’t realistically see this ousting Harley Quinn cosplay as the Halloween outfit of choice this year.
