If you are looking for an ice bucket challenge costume for Halloween, it does exist. Online retailer BrandsOnSale.com is capitalizing on the viral trend to raise awareness for ALS and charging a small fortune for a flimsym plastic costume.
For $39.99, you can avoid carrying around a bucket of ice water while out trick-or-treating and wear the ice bucket challenge costume instead. According to ABC News, BrandsOnSale put the costume online on Friday after getting "lots of interest" from people who want to continue this trend right through the spookiest holiday of the year.
What do you get for almost $40? A clear plastic tarp that looks a bit like a shower curtain, a blue bucket and an empty ice cube tray. Something you could make at home for less than $10 with a bit of creativity.
The spokesperson from BrandsOnSale told ABC that the ice bucket challenge Halloween costume is "still a work in progress." While the company is working on perfecting their product, there is no doubt that other manufacturers will quickly jump on the bandwagon and create their own version of this costume before this popular trend is replaced by something else.
