Earlier we said the Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume would probably be the most controversial Halloween outfit of 2015, but it looks like that title might actually belong to this dentist/Cecil the Lion get-up.

The outfit was created by Costumeish.com and is on sale now, complete with severed lion’s head, dentist tools, and a smock and gloves splattered with fake lion blood.
Their description reads:
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 Lion Killer Dentist Costume features a severed lion’s head mask, bloody smock, and bloody gloves for a gruesome, complete look.
Costumeish also say they’ll give 15% of all proceeds to the African Wildlife Foundation’s Justice For Cecil fundraiser, so that’s nice.
Well, if you thought people were pissed off about the Cecil the Lion story before, wait till they get a load of this. I guess they can take comfort in the fact that to date Costumish haven’t sold ANY Cecil the Lion costumes. Not a single one. Probably because whoever rocks up to a Halloween party wearing it knows they’d get a slap in the mouth.
That being said though, anyone who’s outraged by the Cecil the Lion killing is an absolutely idiot, and HERE’S WHY.
