‘Cecil The Lion’s Killer Dentist’ Is Now An Actual Fancy Dress Costume
Is this going to be the controversial outfit of 2015?
Costumefish.com is selling the costume of the dentist, Walter Palmer, that killed the famous Cecil the lion.
The company CEO said that they had been ‘flooded by requests’ for the costume. But in the few days that it’s been available, they’re yet to sell any.
The costume comes complete with a severed lion’s head, obviously, and dentists tools and uniform covered in blood splats.
The outfit is selling for $59.99 (£38.70), which is pretty pricey, but the company is donating 15 per cent of every sale to ‘a wildlife charity’.
Personally, I think it’s a bit shit. I don’t find it distasteful. A little inapproopriate, maybe, but not offensive. It’s just a bit… Tacky?
Here are a few more costumes in very bad taste that have emerged over the years…
