Forky is the breakout character of Toy Story 4, and as ordained by marketing gods, is appearing in every licensed form — from plush toys to Hot Wheels to T-shirt prints — imaginable. Forky Halloween costumes are the natural next step: an easy way for parents to joke about why any of us exist while dressing up their children, or for millennials to yell, “I’m trash!”

Of course, Forky is also a spork. The costumes do their best to reflect this — some make part of the costume black in order to try to carve out the spork’s silhouette, while others just have a mask with the requisite tines and call it a day. And that’s not even beginning to touch on how they deal with Forky’s pipe cleaner arms or popsicle stick feet.

Long story short, every iteration of Halloween Forky looks a little strange, in one way or another.

We now have a look at the official Forky costume available at Party City. The child’s costume retails for $29.99. It features red arms that look like a too-small cardigan, a humongous mask, and Forky’s popsicle stick feet.

Is this just the beginning of Forky’s ascension into the popular culture? May we be so lucky.
