It’s time to work on those Halloween costume plans.

And with the creepy season coming up, Kim Kardashian’s viral quote advising women in business to “lift your damn ass and get to work” has already spawned a suit.

Yandy, the company known for its pop culture-inspired Halloween costumes, released its own version of the star’s infamous Balenciaga catsuit with warning tape, emblazoned with the words “work harder” instead of the designer label.

Called the Work Harder costume ($73), ironically, it takes less work than mimicking the Skims founder’s tacky style, which she wore to Balenciaga’s Paris Fashion Week show in March.

After all, you don’t have to wrap yourself in tape – or struggle with limited range of motion, like the star did.

This isn’t the first time Yandy has reimagined one of Kardashian’s famous “costume fits”; last year, the company created a version of its masked 2021 Met Gala look for just $100.

And the shapewear tycoon wasn’t the only celebrity this year to show off an abundance of caution (tape); Lizzo sported the same taped Balenciaga look for the cover of Elle UK in July.

Kardashian’s own cautious tape style came shortly after the Variety interview in which she famously said, “I have the best advice for women in business. Put your damn ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”

She has since apologized for the controversial comments, claiming they had been taken out of context.

“Well, that statement I said was without questions and conversations around it. It became a sound bite, really out of context,” Kardashian told Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts in March, explaining that it followed “the question right before that, which is, ‘After 20 years in the business you’re famous because you’re famous.’”

Kim Kardashian faced criticism after the now viral interview with Variety.

“It wasn’t a general statement to women or to feel like I don’t respect the work or think they don’t work hard,” she clarified. “I know they do. It’s taken out of context, but I’m really sorry if it was received that way.”

The star also expressed the reaction in a trailer for season 2 of Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” which saw Khloé Kardashian say, “I’m mortified and I can understand why people were upset.”
