Johannesburg - There are raised eyebrows from those close to Reeva Steenkamp and Oscar Pistorius as a costume store in the UK advertises a 'Blade Runner' Halloween outfit.

The store,, is advertising the green and yellow running outfit with the wording 'Blade Runner' on a bib in the front, similar to outfits athletes use.

The outfit comes with a pair of black and silver boot covers, black sunglasses and a toy gun.

The site advertises the outfit as 'sure to turn heads at your next event' and is selling it for around R545.



Friends close to both Reeva Steenkamp and Oscar Pistorius have told The Juice that they view the outfit as 'distasteful' and 'worrying.'

It's a trend that seems to occur every Halloween since Reeva was shot and killed by Oscar in 2013.

"It's sickening. It makes us feel physically ill and is not funny in the slightest," commented one close friend of Reeva's.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Oscar will be released under correctional supervision on Tuesday, 20 October.
