[pull_quote_center]In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.[/pull_quote_center]
We’re already more than halfway through October, meaning you’ve only got about a week and a half left to secure the perfect Halloween costume. Are you ready?
If you’ve chosen to forgo the slutty costume for something punny or socially relevent, DO NOT make these your options.
For $79.99, you can purchase a HAZMAT looking suit that includes:
- Ebola White Costume Suit
- Ebola Face Shield
- Breathing Mask
- Safety Eye Goggles
- Blue Latex Gloves
But the only thing not included in the costume are the rubber boots. Albeit if you can afford to spend $80 on a containment suit, then $20 for a pair of rainboots from Walmart can’t really hurt yor budget right? And if the costume itself wasn’t “punny” enough, check out it’s description:
[pull_quote_center]The deadly Ebola virus has landed in the United States and the crisis has reached new levels of domestic escalation. You are sure to be prepared if any outbreak happens at your Halloween party. This will literally be the most “viral” costume of the year.[/pull_quote_center]
And if wearing a containment suit to mock the thousands of people dying from this virus isn’t enough, then maybe you should dress up as the “clipboard guy” to completely make fun of how scary Ebola can be. #YOLO right?

Yup, a popular choice for this year’s Halloween costume is to dress up as the guy who forgot to kit himself in protective gear before escorting an Ebola patient onto a plane!
How much more removed from the situation can a person be? These costumes are insensitive mockeries of the epidemic in Africa that allow people to hide behind walls and pretend as if human suffering half way around the world isn’t actually happening.
So it’s really your choice, dress up as something that’s socially relevent and highly insensitive just to win your Halloween party’s costume contest. But we’re saying no-go.
