It’s time to get to work on those Halloween costume plans.
And with spooky season on the way, Kim Kardashian’s viral quote advising women in business to “get your f–king ass up and work” has already spawned a costume.
Yandy, the company known for its pop culture-inspired Halloween costumes, released its own version of the star’s infamous Balenciaga caution-tape catsuit, emblazoned with the words “work harder” in place of the designer label.
Dubbed the Work Harder Costume ($73), the curve-hugging look ironically takes less work than recreating the Skims founder’s sticky style, which she wore to Balenciaga’s Paris Fashion Week show in March.
After all, it doesn’t require wrapping yourself in tape — or contending with a limited range of motion, as the star did.
This isn’t the first time Yandy’s reimagined one of Kardashian’s famous ‘fits in costume form; last year, the company created a version of her masked Met Gala 2021 look for just $100.

And the shapewear mogul wasn’t the only celebrity showing off an abundance of caution (tape) this year; Lizzo sported the same taped-up Balenciaga look for the cover of Elle UK in July.
Kardashian’s own caution-tape style came shortly after the Variety interview in which she famously said, “I have the best advice for women in business. Get your f–king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”
She’s since apologized for the controversial comments, claiming they were taken out of context.
“Well, that statement that I said was without questions and conversation around it. It became a sound bite, really with no context,” Kardashian told “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts in March, explaining that it followed “the question right before, which was, ‘After 20 years of being in the business, you’re famous for being famous.’”
“It wasn’t a blanket statement towards women or to feel like I don’t respect the work or think that they don’t work hard,” she further clarified. “I know that they do. It was taken out of context, but I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”
The star also addressed the backlash in a trailer for Season 2 of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” in which she’s seen telling Khloé Kardashian, “I’m mortified, and I do understand why people were upset.”
