Reality television star Kim Kardashian certainly knows how to get creative when it comes to Halloween!

Each year, the star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians looks to find a way to outdo her previous year’s costume.

Fresh off her big 40th birthday celebration, the KUWTK star recently posted images of a creative group costume involving herself, along with friend Jonathan Cheban and all four of her children.

They went with a smart pop culture reference, opting for a very 2020-relevant Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin Tiger King theme, making sure even the kids got in on the fun.

With Halloween set to arrive on Saturday, Kim Kardashian gave fans a look at a great costume idea for a group to use. In a series of new Instagram posts, Kim put the creative costumes on display.

The theme is based on the Tiger King documentary miniseries, which took Netflix by storm this past March. The true-crime miniseries gripped many people’s attention and has now led to the popularity of the Tiger King costumes this Halloween.

They feature Kim K dressed up as Carole Baskin, with good friend Jonathan “Foodgod” Cheban as Joe Exotic himself. The kids- North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, are dressed up as tigers, which has plenty of fans commenting about how adorable they all look.

The new images (below) arrive just days after Kim K finished celebrating her 40th birthday in Tahiti with family and friends, including Cheban.
