Amazon has the Ken version of this costume, but just the leotard for Barbie. Luckily, you can easily put together the costume yourself. I’ve linked in the leotard, the hat, the hot pink bike shorts, the neon green fanny pack, and some neon green sneakers that you can add hot pink laces too. We recently added the full Barbie skating costume. We love that Amazon continues to add more options. While you could be authentic and wear skates to a party, if school or the location does not allow for skates, we found the perfect shoes and laces to wear instead.
