Websites and bars appear to be cashing in on the Ebola crisis by selling costumes for Halloween, mocked up to look like a containment suit being worn by volunteers risking their own lives to treat people infected with the deadly disease.
The costume – which is available in a male and female version – has appeared on the brands on sale website.
The costumes, which are being sold for $59.99 come complete with a white costume dress, face shield, breathing mask, safety eye goggles and blue gloves.
The site sells the lace up yellow boots separately for $79.99.
The description adds: ‘The short dress and chic gas mask will be the talk of Milan, London, Paris, and New York as the world’s fashionistas seek global solutions to hazmat couture.’
It says the male and female outfits are the perfect way for couples to dress up for Halloween parties. On the male version the website adds: ‘This will literally be the most “viral” costume of the year.’
