A new Halloween costume inspired by Caitlyn Jenner is sparking some controversy.

The 'Call Me Caitlyn' costume mimics the Vanity Fair cover Jenner was on earlier this year.


Spirit Halloween, the company behind the pop-up costume stores that appear everywhere during the fall, plans to sell 'Call Me Caitlyn' at its stores in New York City, according to the Daily News.

“Caitlyn Jenner has proven to be the most important real-life superhero of the year, and Spirit Halloween is proud to carry the costume that celebrates her," Trisha Lombardo, Spirit Halloween's PR and marketing head, told the Daily News.

Critics of the costume say the man selected to pose in the photos gives the impression that they are making fun of the transgender community. Some have even started a petition to get the costume removed from stores.

The costume will go on sale in four to six weeks.
