It was only a matter of time. We're a week out from Halloween, and between the Ray Rice costumes, the Adrian Peterson costume, and this sexy ebola containment suit, Halloween 2014 is shaping up to be the worst ever.
As Ebola works its way from the domain of medical threat to that of the political tool, I suppose it would only make sense that we finally have a sexed-up take on a devastating disease that has claimed thousands of lives. Over at Brand on Sale, they're offering the Sexy Ebola Containment Suit, including a sexy dress, face shield, breathing mask, eye goggles, and latex gloves. The yellow vinyl boots are sold separately. The description reads:
As the deadly Ebola virus trickles its way through the United States, fighting its disease is no reason to compromise style. 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. Ending plague isn't the endeavor of a single woman, so be sure to check out our men's Ebola Containment Costume for a great couple's costume idea.
Obviously it's a pretty big troll, capitalizing on people like me who are somewhere between embarrassed for humanity, and currently in search of a facility that will (inexpensively) cryogenically freeze me until society has overcome its affinity for hypermeta pop culture.
I suppose you could always recycle the costume next year and dress up as the lady from Blink 182's Enema of the State album cover.
