Boy, that costume looks a lot like Prince...

A photo posted to the Minnesota subreddit by u/DonGeronimo shows a costume that looks awfully similar to Minnesota's own Purple One -- Prince.

This is just insulting from r/minnesota

"This is just insulting," reads the caption.

The costume is, of course, supposed to be Prince. But to avoid copyright infringement, the company can't come right out and say it. "The Purple Artist" is just different enough to pass, apparently.

If you're interested in dressing up as The Purple One -- er, ahem...The Purple Artist -- this Halloween, Amazon.com is selling the costume for $35.64 - $55.06. It comes with the purple jacket and dickie; a wig is not included, but you can purchase one here. Complete the look with the Rhode Island Novelty Round Sun Glasses here.
