Here's how to make an Ebola costume in just 20 minutes!

All you need is a onesie,

some double-stick tape,

and some yarn in a contrasting color.

Step 1: Ready, Go!

Put little pieces of double-stick tape all over your onesie.

Add some pieces of yarn.

Make lots of loops in the yarn. Ebola virus has lots of loops and tangles.

Stick them to your pieces of tape.

Step 2: Enjoy!

Enjoy your Ebola costume!

I'd love to see yours too. If you make one, please post a photo in the comments, and I'll give you a patch. (Until I run out of patches.)

EDIT: I never said this was classy nor in good taste, but thanks for the comments just the same! :)

Thanks for this great idea! I used this for last minute costume. The best part is when I would brush up against someone the "ebola" would stick on them and it was like it was spreading ha ha ha! This was too funny all night at the party.

Haha, yes, I discovered this hidden "feature" as well. By the end of the party, I was just walking around sticking pieces of yarn to people. Good times.

Props for simplicity and topical relevance. Ebola IS scary and fitting for a Halloween device. That being said, I am glad you chose to go as a representation of the virus itself and not as one of those awful $60 "sexy ebola nurse" monstrosities I've seen making the rounds. I feel your costume is in good taste while those are more likely to be offensive. Although not being directly affected myself, I can only speak as a third party observer. Also, I'll bet the onesie is comfortable.

Hey guy's it is just a costume chill out

Clever and topical.

I can't see why this would be any more offensive than any of the murderer/serial killer-type costumes out there.

Not as half as funny as you think.

Oh, for sure. It's illarious. We should ask the opinion of a ebola pacient, right? He/she woul think the same... Pathetic.

Hey don't worry, I made a white blood cell costume too, so it evens out!
