Katy Perry has announced the release of official Left Shark clothing, including a t-shirt and a onesie.

The Left Shark was Perry’s back up dancer at her Super Bowl performance, who stole the spotlight from the 30-year-old pop star and became an internet sensation due to his uncoordinated dancing.

Perry’s Super Bowl half-time performance was the most viewed in history, with an average of 118.5 million viewers tuning in to see her 12-minute performance.

The This Is How We Do singer revealed the costume on Twitter with the caption “Attention internet: no longer do you have to DIY left shark costume.” Adding: “You can now be a proper #Leftshark with this official, glorious #Leftshark onesie.”

The Left Shark onesie will cost $130 (£85) and the T-shirt $25 (£16), and will be both available from Perry’s official website katyperry.com.

While the onesie is a version of the costume worn by the dancer, the t-shirt is emblazoned with an image of the left shark, accompanied with the words “Current Mood” across the front and “Katy Perry” and #”leftshark” on the back.

But while fans were happy with the chance to get the look of the dancer shark, some others said it was too expensive.

“I can't even afford to go out with my friend let alone $129 onesies!!!! Stop taunting me!!!!!!” one person wrote in response to Katy's tweet.

While user added: “It's too expensive, I will buy fake ones.”

Following Perry’s performance, many unofficial merchandise has been made but the singer’s attorneys have requested them to stop being sold now the shark has an official clothing outlet.
