Ororo Munroe would never get caught looking this tacky.
Pics of reality-show Life Model Decoy Khloe Kardashian dressed as Marvel Comics’ Storm showed up on Instagram and... look, this is just embarrassing.
There are only a few black super-heroines who are household names and dressing up like one feels like thirsty, conspicuous grab for attention done completely wrong. The silver make-up is nothing like Storm has ever looked like and is actually insult on top of injury: Marvel’s mutant mistress of weather has never been a freak. If you’re trying to distract from the fact that you don’t look like and don’t know the character, this is a terrible way to do it.
And the actual get-up itself looks like a rejected mock-up from a Hot Topic merchandise plan. The silver design on the torso isn’t fooling anybody into thinking it’s an either an S or a lightning bolt. And what’s with those dangly bracelets? Ugh.
Try harder. Or just don’t try at all.
