There’s A SENSELESS Oscar Pistorius Halloween Costume Online Mocking Reeva Steenkamp’s Murder

A Halloween costume of convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius - complete with a fake handgun and racing blades - mocks the murder of model Reeva Steenkamp.

The sick "Blade Gunner" outfit depicts the gold medal-winning Paralympian holding a gun in a sprinting outfit.

Luton-based Jokers' Masquerade is selling the Halloween costume for £24.99 on its website, telling buyers they are sure to "cause lots of controversy" when they wear it.

But it has been called "incredibly insensitive" and "highly offensive" by a charity that supports the families of murder victims.


The fancy dress attire comes with a green and yellow running vest and green shorts, similar to the colours that Pistorius wore when he represented South Africa at the London 2012 Games, and black and silver boot covers as racing blades.

A photo shows a model holding a fake pistol and wearing sunglasses.

Double amputee Pistorius, who earned the nickname "Blade Runner", fatally shot his girlfriend Ms Steenkamp, 29, at his home in Pretoria, South Africa on Valentine's Day in 2013.

He fired four shots through a bathroom door while his victim was locked inside, but claimed he thought he was shooting an intruder.

The 31-year-old's prison sentence was more than doubled to 15 years after an appeal by state prosecutors.
