Joe Exotic (The Tiger King) made a huge cultural splash when his show aired on Netflix last year. Now you can be part of the phenomenon. The shirt is not included.
This is an ideal costume for this time of year. And there is another Halloween movie coming out this year. Maybe this time it will truly be the end of Michael Myers?

This costume takes me back to the days of Run DMC and high school. The hat, glasses, and chain come separately.
