Kim Kardashian channels ‘Splash’ mermaid for Halloween party: awful or cute?

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian at last night’s Midori Halloween party in New York City. Do you know what she is? She’s a mermaid. Specifically, she seems to be Darryl Hannah’s mermaid in Splash. Or, the trashiest version of that mermaid, because this is all very… budget. I honestly think that part of Kim’s Midori contract is that she has to wear green whenever she does a Midori event, so that must have affected how she thought up her “costume,” but I could think of much cuter costume ideas that involve “green” as opposed to this mess.

You know what my biggest problem might be? The blonde wig. I am one of those people who could never pull off any shade of blonde, ever. Kim is also one of those people. This wig ages her, it makes her kat-face look extra crazy and feline, and it just does nothing for her coloring. But… whatever. It was just for a night, and it was a Halloween costume. Now we know. Now we know she can’t pull off blonde. Now we know that if she wears shells on her boobs, her bolt-ons will spill out.

Kanye came to the event with her, but they didn’t really pose on the red carpet together. A few nights ago, Kanye went solo to an event for Samsung, but he was still thinking about Kim:

Kanye West has been bragging about his girlfriend’s curves. The rapper was spotted showing off bikini shots of Kim Kardashian backstage at the Samsung Galaxy Note II event at Skylight. “Kanye was showing 2 Chainz pictures of Kim in a bikini,” says a spy. Giants star Victor Cruz, Kid Cudi and French Montana also attended. “Jersey Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino was heard asking where Kim was, says a source, who heard West respond, “Getting that money! Working!”

I know it’s kind of gross to think of Kanye showing his friends photos of his girlfriend in a bikini, but I kind of find it endearing. I know, I know. I might be drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid a little bit. But I do think Kanye loves that busted mermaid ass.

    Not her best but the bitter people that will come in here & rip her apart for literally everything are comical.

    • Dea says:

      You can’t deny that she looks trashy here and I predict nobody will care about her in five years from now unless she releases another sex tape. She is aging awfully.

    • NadineK says:

      well you gotta admit that she makes it easier for us to comment on her ridiculous outfis since she does it on purpose and it’s not like she’s a talented actress or singer or whatever so we can focus on something else, she’s just a typical fame w***e looking for attention. I normaly don’t comment on anything kardashian related but to see someone actually defending that piece of trash is just mortifying .

    • hikkilove says:

      I agree with you on the bitter people thing. Im no kardashian supporter, but sometimes these comments are so “mean girls” its ridiculous. you would think that everyone who talked about her was a size two supermodel who did charity work or something.

    • LeManda says:

      I may be alone here but I think this costume is great! It’s Halloween lighten up people! There’s no need to use your expert stylist opinions on costumes. It’s all about the fun.
      I may even try this for my next year costume. I really like the way they did the skirt/tail.

      • Pauline says:

        +1 LeManda. People need to lighten up. And I say this as someone who is no fan of the Kardashian clan…but it’s Halloween! I think budget and trashy is the theme of this ‘holiday’!

      • NadineK says:

        I just wanted to make a point ..halloween or not she’s still a talentless fame w***e. and like i’ve said before i’ve EVER commented on anything related to her ,the way she looks or her weight because she’s not worth it .

      • deehunny says:


        I agree, I like the costume. Halloween is supposed to be fun. However, her top does not fit properly at all. It’s for a smaller busted girl. But, if it did fit, I think it’s cute except for the UGLY BLONDE WiG. Ugh.

    • Liz says:

      It is not about slamming Kim. It is the fact that her style has gotten worse since Kanye started helping her with her style.

    • Liz says:

      It is not about singling out Kim personally. Her style has been lousy since Kanye started helping her with her style.

    • Colleen says:

      It is not about being mean to Kim personally. Her style has been lousy since Kanye started helping her with her clothes.

    • Colleen says:

      It is not about criticizing Kim personally. Her style has been lousy since Kanye started helping her with her clothes.

  2. Missy Mara says:

    Ugh. She looks so saggy and classless. She looks like an overinflated Cher, really.

  3. Kiki says:

    Wow! She looks big! Has she gained weight?

    • Dee says:

      I don’t think she’s big at all. She has a nice figure and could look good if only she had not committed herself to being famous for her big a**. Since she always tries to show that off she ends up wearing clothes that pull around her midsection and since she’s got a large bust and a short waist as well end up making her look like a sausage. It’s exactly the least flattering way in the world for her to dress. I don’t care for the woman but on the rare occasions she wears something that works on her figure, she really can look stunning.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    i love the placement of the two neon green skulls.
    the top one seems to see: “ACK! OMG! I’m dead, i glow in the dark, and i have to see this?!”
    and the bottom one seems to say: “gotta turn away, not gonna look.”

  5. dooliloo says:

    She looks like one of Hugh Heffner blown up dolls in that ridiculous outfit. Actually she should join the mansion Halloween circus party.

    Can’t believe I’m saying this but had she gone with her own dark hair it’d have been another story look wise.

    • Liv says:

      She should have worn a red wig – the blonde looks horrible.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Exactly. A reddish wig would have helped. And there are some gorgeous mermaid costumes out there—wonder why she picked this one! She doesn’t look that interested in being there—but then, she wears that blank expression most of the time.

    • Shitler says:

      She should just join the circus, Period!!

  6. Tiffany27 says:

    THE FUK? She looks like Donatella Versace.

  7. yael says:

    i must know how this woman always manages to find outfits that are incredibly unflattering on her.

  8. Macey says:

    she looks like Lindsay Lohan in a green dress with a fake ass.

  9. Flim says:

    The mermaid in Splash was orange.

  10. Flim says:

    The mermaid in Splash was orange! Oops-sorry for the dupe…

  11. I'm going to Guam! says:

    She looks bad as a brunette as well. She has officially ruined her face and looks like cat lady now.
    Maybe she should dye her hair a nice auburn-purpley-red color to take the attention away from that face.

  12. Anon says:


  13. Jayna says:

    For a second I thought it was Lindsay Lohan.

  14. chalkdustgirl says:

    Awful. She doesn’t have the natural beauty that Daryl Hannah once had.

    • Dredz says:

      Gosh, back in her JFK Jr dating days, Daryl Hannah was such a stunning, stunning beauty. Remember Wall Street?.

  15. The Original Mia says:

    She looks a hot mess. Coco could pull this off, but not Kim. That blonde wig is definitely budget. Damn, girl…you can afford a better wig & costume.

    • Lem says:

      That might work; do mermaids have cameltoe?

    • hazeldazel says:

      See, this is what I don’t get – why a woman who has SOOOOO much money dresses like she went shopping with me a Party City at the mall for a costume. That blonde wig looks like it costs $10. Throw in another $40 bucks for the two sizes too small mermaid costume and Voila!

      If she got a costume in her actual size and spent money on a decent wig, she would look good. She looks like a joke instead.

  16. tru tru says:

    she looks like road kill and Ye looks like a stunt Queen with his lips pursed.

  17. Kimlee says:

    She needs more boob coverage and a better wig because the one she wearing looks a hot mess other wise the costumes not that bad.

  18. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    Is it just me or does her stomach area look really weird? Like she has a couple of Spanxx on underneath?

  19. Lizzie K says:

    She looks like Christina Aguilera on a drunken spree.

  20. Dee says:

    For a woman whose response to criticism that she is famous for nothing is that she is a hard working business woman, she sure spends a lot of time just dressing up and going to parties. How many Halloween cotumes does a hard working business woman in her thirties actually need?

  21. Evelyn says:

    She doesn’t even look like she thinks she looks good! The outfit is pretty par for the Kourse, but that wig… Jeeze

    • Dee says:

      The wig is not convincing but in all fairness, this is a Halloween costume. I don’t think anyone would think well of her if she had invested thousands of dollars on a high end wig for the occasion either.

  22. Lem says:

    As a itty bitty titty’d thing, I am panicking for her.
    Those shells are so poorly fitted. What do you do? Double sided tape straight to the nips?
    Gravity and that top can’t compete much longer

  23. MoxyLady007 says:

    Say what you will about what this girl is doing to dumb down America, but she works her ass off.

    • Shitler says:

      Cause getting paid to attend parties & take photos is such hard work?

    • swack says:

      Just how does she “work her ass off”? All she does is go on vacations, get filmed for doing every day things for her show and putting in personal appearances. Don’t call that working – JMO. I could “work my ass off” if it was all fun.

    • lower-case deb says:

      suddenly, remembering, a long long time ago, at DCI some corps played the little mermaid suite or something, and didn’t they have just one of the girls dress up as ariel and all she had to do is slide from one end of the field to the other for the duration of the show?
      or did i just imagine that?

      that said, if Kim did that at the Midori gig, i’d definitely say that she’s working her ass off.

    • palermo says:

      No, others work their ass off and then she takes credit for it. She is no designer, no store manager, no stylist, no makeup artist, no hairdresser, no actress, no financial wizard, no negotiator, no perfume expert, and definitely a terrible porn star, lying there like a dead trout. What does she DO other than pose and tweet

  24. PortlandJan says:

    Somewhere, Daryl Hannah is either sobbing uncontrollably or laughing herself into a side stitch. Note to Kim: Daryl did it better!

  25. emmie_a says:

    It really doesn’t look like a costume on her. Minus the wig, this looks like something we’d see her in any day of the week while getting her nails done or eating frozen yogurt.

    • jani says:

      True. And compared to the 4 sizes too small leather jodhpurs in Miami heat, the cut to the navel green dress with safety pins holding the torn back together and the awful blue thing that had so much extra, ill fitting drapery fabric that she’s worn recently, it’s actually a slight improvement for her.

  26. Peanut says:

    The wig is giving me a Cher-vibe for sure. Not hot.

  27. BIGT says:

    She looks like 10 lbs. of sh*t in a 9 lb. bag… like usual. Why is she famous? Oh right got peed on by a black guy in a video. Pure class.

  28. po says:

    Standing in the corner and showing rappers and ballplayers pictures of your girlfriend, who was also in a sextape that they have probably seen, is not love or endearing.
    Also, you know what I realized about Kanye? He has to have such low self-esteem. I know some people don’t agree but he has to have a pretty low opinion of himself to be as talented and successful as he is and still feel the need to jump up on stages and date someone like Kim K. The reason she is dating him is pretty obvious. She doesn’t have any talent for anything in particular and this is her career, being seen with people. I get it. Kanye on the other hand is not the same. He has other ways to make money and be seen at the same time yet he chooses to be seen like this. I don’t believe the arrogant role he tries to portray, I think he has a lot of issues with himself. IMO

    • Emma says:

      I agree with everything you said!

    • tabasco says:

      I think there is something to this, although I’m not sure if it’s low self-esteem (which don’t they say is usually the case when someone is an ego-monster?) or a screwed up view of women. Or a bit of both. I only know of Kim K and Amber Rose as girlfriends of his and in both cases, what he seems to value about them is their body type and propensity for fame-whoring. With Kim, he talks proudly about her “working” (oh, she’s a “working girl”, alright!) and having gotten herself famous from a sex tape. It seems to say something about what he thinks makes a woman valuable.

      • Po says:

        Yeah, but you know what? Maybe he likes people to think Amber and Kim are his type to shield himself from the gay image. I don’t know, but I know I’m not buying what he’s selling. He’s covering for something. He’s got these “friends ” in the business who have pretty wives and girlfriends who are not an embarrassment and he goes for her.

    • weslyn says:

      Thank uuu…I was just saying this today..if u even listen to his verses on songs, he sounds so lost and like a person who has to compensate for his low self-esteem

  29. j.eyre says:

    If she does have to wear green, wouldn’t it be amazing if she had gone as Oscar the Grouch, replete with garbage can? Contractual AND educational!

  30. swack says:

    “The rapper was spotted showing off bikini shots of Kim Kardashian backstage at the Samsung Galaxy Note II event at Skylight” What are you, in high school? It’s fine to show pictures of your girl/boy friend to others but this sound like what you do in high school to “impress” your friends. Both of them need to grow up some.

  31. Franziska says:

    Everyone, even famewhores, deserve to be loved so I’m happy that they seem happy. What I want to know is how she walks around with her boobs hanging out SO MUCH.

  32. palermo says:

    she needs bigger shells

  33. Grace says:

    I still think she’s in her first trimester and that Kanye secretly hates her.

  34. ms.steel says:

    gosh, look at kanye, the lips! looks like……

  35. Relli says:

    She looks like heidi montag or yeah a playbot bunny/ girlfriend! This proves how much she has messed with her face. Also if his buddies wanted to see bikini pics all they would need to do is go online, there is like bajillion of them, nothing thousands havent already seen.

    My husband thinks that kanye dating kim is some sort of art stunt, like hes pulling a Joaquin Phoenix but i dont know. I tend to think they are both just shallow and vain enough to make it work, however i get like a good friend vibe from them not a burning love.

  36. SusieQ says:

    Boob veins – ugh.

  37. HotPockets says:

    I thought this was Xtina for at least a full 5 minutes before clicking on the article.

  38. Jane says:

    I saw the first pic and thought it was Donatella Versace….

  39. G says:

    Imma goin to give her the costume. It’s a costume.

    I am noticing an alarming trend though, the past few weeks. She seems to have ceased to support the girls. Please, we have the technology. Keep those girls UP!

  40. MadisonMermaid says:

    Well, only the wig is channeling Darryl Hannah’s “Splash”…

    The worst thing about Darryl Hannah’s “Splash” mermaid is that it launched one of the worst trends in names EVER. Before that film, NO ONE named their kid “Madison”.

    During one scene, she and Tom Hanks are trying to find her a name in English, since hers is unpronounceable in human talk. While going through names, he looks up to see what street they are on and says “where are we? Madison Ave”. The mermaid picks that as the name she likes. Joke being that that isn’t a frickin first name, it’s a street named for a dead president–his LAST NAME. The mermaid likes it though and he says “Fine, Madison it is.”

    After that, a million fools named their daughters Madison. It’s probably among my top 5 stupidest names people give little girls.

  41. booboocita says:

    Y’know, if I had seen this costume on some random girl at a party, I’d have been pretty impressed. On someone with mega resources and time to put together something spectacular, it’s just meh. The top half isn’t too bad (although I’d have done something with the hair, like sparkly clips in the shape of starfish or shells or something), but the bottom half is way too plain, and just detracts from the whole. Contrast this with the inspired get-ups that Heidi Klum wears, and it’s just blah.

    Speaking of which — now that Heidi and Seal have split, will Heidi continue to throw her Hallowe’en blowouts? I hope so! I love her costumes!

  42. The Original Mia says:

    Why does Kanye need to show off pics of his girlfriend? She does that anyway. On her own. It’s ridiculous. We’re not privy to what Kanye says to his rapper friends, but I doubt it’s as sweet & lovey dovey as they’d want us to believe.

  43. tabasco says:

    i am built a lot like kim – short, petite in the frame but not in the curves, short-waisted. i have big boobs (sucks for the back) and booty, but small waist/shoulders/etc. this girl cannot dress for her shape to save her life. she shouldnt wear stuff that is to the floor, particularly a mermaid shape, and i dont understand her need to wear a size or two too small all the time – it’s not cute!she should stick to simple clothes that don’t go past the mid-calf area. and all that hair/makeup/boobage just makes her look older and heavier. she would look great in a fitted (*fitted*, not about to split at the seams!) midi-length scoop-neck tank dress, minimal makeup, loose/messy bun, sandal-heels. LESS IS MORE, esp when you already have so much MORE.

  44. maria says:

    I agree that KK loos horrid. I am so saddened though when I see other women bash her with misogynistic terms and observations. It seems many of you have bought the hype that women can’t age or be a few pounds over a size 2…sad. Attack her for being an insipid trashy idiot famous for nothing etc. But please stop perpetuating the misogyny by calling her fat or commenting on her or any woman’s ‘aging well ‘ or ‘looking big’ when they clearly are not fat. It hurts and young girls who read this will internalize it.

  45. lucy2 says:

    If you hadn’t told us this was for Halloween, I would have thought it was a typical night out for her, plus a bad wig.
    Also, check out the headline for this story at Dlisted. Hilarious!

    • Shitler says:

      Omg! That is sooo funny! & true. Deadliest indeed. Speaking of which is Deadliest Catch still on? Havn’t seen it in a while..

  46. girlnbayou says:

    reminds me of shakira. who also looks terrible as a blonde I might add.

    • Victoria says:

      Yes Shakira needs to go back to her natural hair color and texture. Blonde isn’t for everyone!
      I actually enjoy kardashian posts everyone gets riled up

  47. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I think Kim is beautiful. I think her show is silly, though.

    I like her better as a brunette. The blonde wig was just for fun, thankfully…I would hate to see her go permanently blonde tho.

    I like that Kanye West is encouraging her to use less artifice in her public image. Hopefully he can stop her from going the botox route.

  48. Kelly says:


  49. nhi says:

    looks greasy…

  50. ctkat1 says:

    I hate, HATE pretty much everything she stand for, I’m grossed out that a person can make a career the way that she has, I think she’s a horrible aspirational model for younger women, etc.

    However…she as a person isn’t really that bad. I mean, Paris Hilton, her spirit guide, is a legitimately horrible person. Kim is tacky and materialistic and talentless, but she isn’t an actively horrible person.

  51. alons-y alonso says:

    the minute I read ‘he loves that mermaid ass’ I couldn’t help but think of that episode of South Park where Kanye West turns out to be a gay fish. 😀 I believe my morning is made

  52. gina says:

    i like the costume, it’s cute and creative. It was also cute that Kanye was her captain.

  53. Stephanie says:

    She dressed up as Princess Jasmine from Aladdin a few years ago and was stunning.

  54. LucyOriginal says:

    For whatever reason, I saw her pic and I thought she was channeling Lil’ Kim a bit…

  55. Billie P. says:

    She looks like donatella versace eeww

  56. Viv says:

    I had to pause for a minute to figure out which of the two is the busted mermaid.

  57. mar says:

    she is gross and shes not pretty to me anymore

  58. Holden says:

    She’s looking a little fluffy these days.

  59. Steph says:

    I LOVE these two together. I can’t exactly put my finger on the reason why…The attention seeking? The constant screwing up? They have so much in common. Well except he has talent.

    I want them to get married and have lots of babies!

  60. drea says:

    LOL! I still believe that a showbiz guy who talks that much and that loudly about how much he wants to get his hands all over his girlfriend, etc., is showmancing. And it’s KANYE, like we haven’t heard the rumors, talking about KIM, the princess of fake (queen is still mama Kris of course).
