Halloween costume released

Product Release

Cecil the Lion hHalloween costumeCostumeish.com releases a Cecil the Lion themed Halloween costume (link), which comprises a bood-splttered dentist’s uniform and a severed lion head. The company says they created the costume because they were flooded with requests. The costume retails at $59.99 with 15% of all proceeds will go to the African Wildlife Foundation’s “Justice for Cecil.” From company website:

All Doctor Palmer wanted was to hang dead animals in his house, but what started as an obscure (if legally-dubious) hunting trip has since erupted into a brouhaha of trans-Atlantic proportions. 2015’s most controversial killing has laid bare the rift in American and Zimbabwean attitudes toward exotic game hunting and animal conservation pitting an outraged mob against a Minnesotan dentist in a scandal sure to be remembered for a generation. Our Cecil Lion Killer Dentist Costume features a severed lion’s head mask, bloody smock, and bloody gloves for a gruesome, complete look.
