The time between the Tiger King mania and Halloween might seem like yonks but the Netflix craze was only a few months ago.
Yep, that whole Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin fiasco was all in 2020.
And in a move that surprises no one, you can now get Tiger King-inspired Halloween costumes.
Online retailer Yandy is offering two new get-ups for the spooky season including a female Joe Exotic attire and another Tiger Queen costume that comes with a stuffed big cat.
And of course, because ’tis the season, both outfits are sexy and will show plenty of skin.
The new additions are no surprise for Yandy as they also sold other sexy costumes inspired by the Popeyes chicken sandwich, Mr. Rogers, and Rihanna and Beyonce’s Met Gala outfits in the past.
Will you be dressing up as a ‘Cool Cat’ or ‘Tiger Queen’ this Halloween?
The Yandy Tiger Queen costume is available for $67.95 (£52.45) and the description reads: ‘Meow, sassy zookeeper!
‘Aren’t you an exotic, tiger-befriending beauty? Ignore that bizarre babe throwing serious cat-itude your way. Prove you’re the star of the animal breeding world in this exclusive Tiger Queen costume.’
Meanwhile, the $49.90 (£38.52) Coolest Cat costume is ideal if you’re trying to match your BFF.
The tiger print bodysuit also comes with a matching tiger ears headband.
The description says: ‘A queen only bows down to her king. Be the baddest kitty queen in town in this Coolest Cat costume’.
It seems the tiger thirst is real as fans all over the world have been dressing up as the main man for various occasions this year.
Albeit the star of the show, Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage, is currently serving a prison sentence for a murder plot on Carole Baskin and killing and selling tigers.
The show’s protagonist riled up animal rights enthusiasts PETA who released their own Halloween costume inspired by the documentary.
Earlier in the year, PETA unleashed a ‘Joe Exotic Tiger Killer Costume’ for a whopping $159.99 (£123).
On the website, it says ‘it comes with everything you need to portray the notorious tiger abuser: a blond wig, a mustache, jail bars, a plush pouncing tiger, and an orange jumpsuit with the more apt moniker “Tiger Killer” on the front.’
