Both Kardashian and Shepherd conform to the twins' standard schoolgirl costume: a cropped shirt, a pleated skirt, and light blue backpacks. Kardashian also wore Fook Mi's tie tie and extended her black, liquid eyeliner into a dramatic cat's eye to give her eyes a more almond-shaped form.

While most of Kourtney's fans seemed to like pop culture inspired, the costume comes into deeper conversation about cultural appropriation and Halloween, making it a surprising choice given the current climate.
There was some controversy over parents who allowed their children to disguise themselves as their favorite Polynesian princess Moana. After the success of the Disney movie, young fans had the chance to channel the powerful character. And just last week, NBC confirmed the cancellation of Megyn Kelly's 9:00 am Today show hour in the midst of an immense backlash for their controversial comments on Blackface.

Kardashian West, who was dressed as Pamela Anderson at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards, saw himself faced with backlashes because she called people who did not recognize her costume during the Kar-Jenner sex by the R-word Halloween bash last night.
"Okay, we're Pam Anderson and Tommy Lee," she said in a video posted in her Instagram story. "Nobody knows who we are here! You are all too young. That's so sad.
In another video, Kardashian West showed that Shepherd congratulated her squad and pointed out that almost nobody had identified the costume. "Nobody knows who I am. Yes! Delayed, "said Kardashian West.
Fans immediately criticized the star for using the word in the video clip, which has since been deleted.
"@ KimKardashian So, people who do not know who you are for Halloween are really lagging behind !! You may want to spend time with people with disabilities to show more empathy with those with special needs. "" One person tweeted.
"That was a really unnecessary use of the word" lagged behind. "" I think we should all know and do better now, it breaks my heart and annoys my soul when I hear that word whirl around as I hear the word Know pain it carries. "
