Halloween is a few weeks away and everyone is getting ready for it. Usually, people wear scary costumes or sometimes, dress as their favorite Hollywood stars. But this year, Urban Outfitters have changed the game. In an attempt to show diversity, the fashion shop has released an “Influencer Costume” for Halloween shoppers. And this costume is going for €50!
As you can see, the outfit comprises of a simple grey sports bra described as “minimalist sporty-chic” with darker grey leggings to complete the “look that’s so now.” Also on sale are a black canvas baseball cap, FILA white chunky sneakers for £53 (€60) and a long blonde wig for £12 (€13). All these come together to give you the complete ‘Kim Kardashian/ Yeezy’ influencer look.

But are consumers pleased with this new addition to the Halloween closet?
While Kim’s photo garnered over 2 million likes on Instagram, people could barely rate this outfit 4 stars! On social media (Twitter) the costume has received mixed reactions – most of it, disbelief.
“What world do we live in?” one person tweeted.
“Nothing says Insta-famous like paying $59 for a package of crap”, another added.

“Where’s the flat tummy tea?” someone asked, while another said: “Oh come on, it should at least come with a bag of skinny tea.”
Clearly, people are not impressed by the influencer look. Yet another addition to the ‘negatives’ we experience in this industry. Sigh.
Meanwhile the outfit has been rated an overall 3.4 stars, though we are not sure who has bought it yet.
