Halloween isn't for another two months, but online lingerie and costume shop Yandy just released its so-called "Cecil the Lion" costume. What better way to memorialize the beloved Zimbabwean lion, who's murder launched an internet crusade against the American hunter, than wearing a $119 crushed velvet bodysuit while throwing back a few too many well drinks with other grown adults in costumes. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the cleavage-bearing, extra-leggy bodysuit will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund, according to the site.

Although the gold costume is sold out, you can find adequate options by typing "sexy lion costume" into your search browser. Feel free to donate directly to the World Wildlife Fund in order to clear your conscious.
