There have been two major advancements in the Halloween costume industry over the last decade or so. One is that anything—literally anything—can be “sexy.” The other is that topicality is more important than quality, which has resulted in a number of Halloween costumes related to current events that are sold for exorbitant prices despite being literal garbage.
Remember “Balloon Boy” Falcon Heene? Here’s a cardboard box and a shitty balloon for $20 bucks. You could also go as Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who quit his job before sliding down an airplane’s evacuation slide in 2010, by buying a shirt and some fake beers for just $40 dollars. In that tradition comes the costume for our latest national obsession: Pregnant Kylie Jenner.
The costume comes courtesy of lingerie company Yandy.com, who have dubbed it the “Reality Star In The Making” costume. The outfit here is a knockoff of this outfit she recently modeled on her Instagram account.
Surprise! The costume’s dress is not the one pictured above, but it still costs $60. Please note, however, that that doesn’t include the smartphone or wig, the latter of which goes for an extra $28 on Yandy. But hey, who can put a price on the many comments you’ll get from people dressed up as Pennywise throughout the night, such as, “Who are you supposed to be?” and “Why didn’t you just put a pillow under one of your own dresses?”
The good news? Now Kylie gets to be the one suing for copyright infringement.
