So: Jasmine Tridevil and her three boobs? Definitely a hoax. But if you looking for the Internet meme Halloween costume to end all Internet meme Halloween costumes, it’s also just what the doctor ordered — even if that doctor is a fake plastic surgeon who doesn’t actually exist.
After our discussion last week about the holes in Tridevil’s story, it came out that Alisha Hessler — Tridevil’s real name — had filed a claim with the Tampa International Airport earlier in September for stolen baggage. 10 News reports that two people were arrested for stealing bags off of the airport’s conveyor belts and the luggage recovered — but guess what was in Hessler’s bag, according to the property receipt for it dated September 16, 2014? A “3 breast prosthesis.” For reals.
Unsurprisingly, at least one Halloween costume purveyor has already capitalized on the absurdity of the whole thing: HalloweenCostumes.com posted an easy and hilarious DIY Jasmine Tridevil costume on their blog this past Thursday. Utilizing two pairs of the “super drooper boobs” they sell for the low, low price of $9.99 each, the costume retailer rigged the most ridiculous three-breasted prosthesis the world has ever seen; some super cheap fabric snipped from a bright pink Jem and the Holograms costume and a dark wig finished the look off.
Is it tacky? Of course — but no tackier than the original story (I don't know about you, but I definitely consider it proof that celebrity culture is out of control). Plus, this is the first time a triple-breasted Halloween costume has been pop culturally relevant since Total Recall was released in 1990, so we may as well seize the opportunity, right?
Head on over to HalloweenCostumes.com to see the whole look, because obviously this is exactly what you to start your weekend on the highest note possible. Happy Friday, everyone!
