Halloween Costumes This Year May Get Controversial
Two Halloween costume ideas that hit a hot button this week involve sensitive news stories. Would you wear a Caitlyn Jenner costume? What's the other idea that's got social media in a frenzy?
The Caitlyn Jenner costume is for sale at Spirit Halloween stores. NBC News talked to a spokesperson who said the costume is part of a wider range of celebrity costumes including KISS, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, and it's not meant to draw attention to any particular news story or angle.
How tasteful it is probably depends on the person who wears it. A guy or a girl. You know?
Another Halloween costume idea that's drawing the "squinty eye" is the doctor who killed Cecil the Lion. Oh boy.
TMZ says it's for sale online now, and includes a severed lion's head and spattered white t-shirt. The company selling the costume says 15% of all proceeds will go to the African Wildlife Foundation "Justice for Cecil." That makes it all better.
Now is the time to start thinking about your Halloween costume, especially if you have to order it or make it. What are your thoughts on these two? I think you'd look great as a ghost.
Maybe a vampire. Or a witch. There's always that.
