This past weekend, Katy Perry debuted yet another enormous costume, this time in a video promotion for American Idol, on which she is a judge. A huge hand-sanitizer bottle, it’s only the latest in what increasingly appears to be an endless supply of oversize ensembles modeled on regular objects:

The singer’s first foray into this style of dress was back in 2014, when she dressed up as a gargantuan Hot Cheeto . She followed the look a year later with a dress whose skirt was modeled on .

Soon after, she rewore the burger in Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” music video. Swift, meanwhile, dressed as a carton of huge fries, which, given what we know about the situation, may have been a good-faith loan from Perry’s own closet.

The ensembles do look a bit like high-concept hired entertainment for a child’s birthday party, but Perry’s oversize livery is custom designerwear. Her Met Gala looks were Jeremy Scott, and, ,” this Purell number was a collaboration between her creative director, Johnny Wujek, costume designer Shokra, and fashion designer Pini.
