Ebola Hazmat Suit – Literally, This Halloween’s Most ‘Viral’ Costume Idea. Too Soon?
Well, that didn't take long. While the CDC and the world try to come to grips the the ebola virus outbreak, one of the most-searched Halloween costume ideas this year is the 'Ebola Hazmat Suit.' Accessories include items such as respirators, gas masks, and rubber gloves.
I took a quick trip to the popular Spirit Halloween store on Western Avenue in Sioux Falls to discover that the suit was actually for sale. Although the packaging did not specifically say "ebola" it may be in bad taste to use this as a Halloween idea.
With pictures of health care workers in yellow protective suits on the news daily I'm not sure many people would be comfortable seeing you walk into the Buck's Halloween Bash.
Not surprisingly, I did discover that anything zombie is going to be popular again this year. Thanks, in part, to the mega-ratings of AMC's 'The Walking Dead.'
