Ebola has come to the United States.

Over the past several weeks, the disease has infected its first patients in America, with a nurse named Nina Pham recently contracting it it after treating another victim.

But even though it's deadly, and even though it's very recently taken lives close to come, Ebola is very much in the news. And that means it's ripe for Halloween!

Yes, multiple costume shops are selling Ebola Hazmat Suits for October 31.

Jonathan Weeks - chief executive of BrandsOnSale, which is selling an Ebola containment suit costume for $79.99 - tells the Associated Press that he doesn’t want to "stray away from anything that’s current or controversial" when offering options to his patrons.

The town of Wasco, California, has apparently been targeted by a mysterious clown. Or clowns. There appear to be several of them, lurking after dark.

These clowns appear to be skilled at social media use, too. They've been popping up on Twitter and Instagram, sharing photos of themselves around town ...

Wasco, California Clown

Instagram and Twitter (bio: "IM [sic] THE REAL DEAL") profiles imply that this is some sort of clown gang. One notes, "I'm not the only one out there."

The clown mostly seems like an elaborate Halloween prank, and residents are treating it as such. Some of them don't appear to be laughing ... but others are.

"Some residents go in cars searching for him. They have flashlights and try to spot him in neighborhoods after he posts to Twitter,” Noah Sanchez said.

At the same time, "It's kind of fun, though, to get us in the Halloween spirit."

Some of their antics go beyond innocent Instagram photos, though.

Sexy cats and nurses? Those things are so last year.

This Halloween, we have some exciting and timely news: Frozen costumes are all the rage, and we're not talking about G-rated ones for the kids.

Dads, avert your eyes and lock up your daughters ...

Frozen Sexy Costumes

If you thought the apparently real Frozen wedding dress was the most ridiculous product stemming from the hit movie you could buy ... you're still right.

Getting married in Frozen-themed attire is, by a wide margin, more ridiculous than donning it for Halloween, a fun holiday dedicated to such things.

Nevertheless, wow on the costume front.

Sexy costume purveyor Yandy (dot) com is selling the aforementioned items, including a Olaf the snowman in a white leotard (our personal favorite).

Chad Palmer, a Camden County, Ga., deputy sheriff, is under scrutiny for painting his face black and dressing up as a prisoner for a Halloween party.

A picture shows him in a black-and-white prison uniform. He can be seen with black paint covering his face and arms, wearing a jail uniform.

At the party, he said he was a Camden County inmate, and was picking cotton.

A spokesman for Sheriff Jim Proctor says the costume was "unacceptable." Proctor is scheduled to discuss the incident during a news conference.

There have been strong reactions from the community, as you would expect.

"Look at it. A white man with a black face, this just isn't right. It can't get more racist than that. It can't," said Shelia Blake. "I think this is disgusting."

Well, we were wrong.

It does get more offensive than dressing your seven-year old as a KKK member or going trick-or-treating as a Boston Marathon bombing victim.

Two 19-year olds from Great Britain, Amber Langford and Annie Collinge, attended a costume party at Rosie's nightclub in Chester last Thursday night and were decked out as the North Tower and the South Tower on 9/11.

And that may not even be the worst part of this story...

The equally disheartening tidbit? The women won the establishment's award for Best Dressed.

The girl who wore a Boston Marathon bombing costume for Halloween this year has apologized for her "distasteful" actions.

But the mother who dressed her seven-year old son as a member of the Ku Klux Klan last week? Not so much.

Kid Dressed as KKK Member

Virginia resident Jessica Black tells WHSV that it's a "family tradition" for her loved ones to don this attire for Halloween, explaining that her brother did so when he was in kindergarten… and what's the big deal, anyway?

Is the KKK really so bad?

Alicia Ann Lynch is very sorry.

The 22-year old Michigan native dressed as a victim of the Boston Marathon bombing for Halloween this year and has been feeling the wrath of the Internet community ever since a photo of the outfit went viral.

She tells BuzzFeed that folks also found a picture of her driver's license online and have sent vile packages to her address, while issuing death threats to both her and her parents.

Lynch adds that she has since deleted all her social media accounts and got fired as a result of the costume.

Halloween may be over. But the consternation over certain costume ideas may last forever.

First, there were the two morons who dressed up like Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, bloody hooded sweatshirt included.

Then, there were these Asiana Airlines pilot costumes, as trick-or-treaters mocked the plane crash that killed two passengers in July.

But we now appear to have a winner for Most Offensive Costume in the History of Mankind: A young woman from Michigan posted a photo online of herself decked out like a victim of April's Boston Marathon bombing.

Really. We wish we were making this up:

Boston Marathon Victim Costume

The idiot in question has been identified as 22-year-old Alicia Ann Lynch, but it's hard to blame one Twitter user for referring to Alicia as "@someSKANKinMI," isn't it?

Vote now: is this the most insensitive costume you've ever seen?


UPDATE: Lynch has apologized and asked people to end their death threats.

An awesome photo of Little Jesse and Baby Walt - two kids dressed up as the characters from Breaking Bad - spread rapidly across the web this Halloween week.

It even ended up on the Instagram page of Aaron Paul, who plays Jesse, drawing over 100,000 likes. The kids' mother was not one of those approving.

Breaking Bad Halloween Costumes

In fact, despite being a Breaking Bad fan, the mom of the two boys, ages four months and three years, was shocked and confused as to how the photo got there.

What started out as private family fun shared on Facebook quickly took a turn for the worse, and devolved into attacks on her taste and skills as a parent.

"Come on, what's the kid telling his friends? Hey, I'm a meth dealer for Halloween! Not cool, parents," one blogger wrote, criticizing the (hilarious) image above.

Note to Matt Lauer: this is how you cross-dress for Halloween.

Hours after The Today Show anchor embarrassed himself as Pamela Anderson, Joshua Malina appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live decked out as Olivia Pope, the beloved fixer at the center of ABC's Scandal who is portrayed by Kerry Washington.

"I am so proud of Josh, he wore the hat, the gloves with style," Tweeted show costume designer Lyn Paolo in response to the appearance.

But did he wear them with more style than Washington? Decide for yourself now. Who looks better in this outfit?
