Creepy gimp outfits being flogged for £40 in wake of terrifying harassment case

Creepy gimp costumes are still being sold in the wake of a terrifying harassment case.

Joke shops are flogging the outfits – like the one used by a convicted sex pest.

So-called Somerset gimp Joshua Hunt was linked to 25 incidents in five years.

The gardener, 32, was issued with a sexual risk order after dressing in an all-black suit in public at night and “crawling, wriggling or writhing on the ground”.

He jumped out at members of the public, with one saying: “It was out of a nightmare.”

Earlier this month, Hunt, of Claverham, North Somerset, was banned from wearing the suit in public again after he was convicted of two offences under the Public Order Act of intentionally causing harassment, alarm or distress.

But the suits are still available online for just a few quid.

Smiffy’s online store sells them for £38.99, with a picture showing a man in one with his hands above his head in handcuffs.

One user, who posted a snap of himself wearing the outfit, left a review.

Craig said: "Ideal for someone 6ft tall, any taller and it is a tight squeeze, thankfully it doesn’t make you too hot as similar costumes might.

“Good for a night out or stag but don’t expect too much longevity as it splits easily so do wear clothes underneath. Real gimping wouldn’t be recommended.”

Similar outfits can be bought for £24.99 on a stag do website – – where a description reads: “You know, sometime even the biggest, veiniest, most mortifying penis costume just isn’t enough humiliation for you best mate on his stag night.

“Sometimes you have to go a bit darker in order to get the full potential of embarrassment out of the night.

“Sometimes only a full blown gimp suit will do.”

Smiffys has been contacted for comment.
