Jeffrey Dahmer Costumes may not be on supermarket shelves this Halloween… but that doesn’t stop people from promoting a killer costume online.
Tons of serial killer-inspired costume items are up for sale on eBay, despite outrage from people who say the costume, given Dahmer’s history, is just plain disrespectful.
People on the site sell everything from Jeffrey Dahmer glasses to a T-shirt similar to the one the actor is wearing Evan Peters In the new Netflix series. Some of the props on sale are made for kids’ fashion… like a JD-inspired wig.
One kid had already taken to social media after his rendition of the killer went viral, with people suggesting anyone wearing Dahmer gear should get hit.

Halloween costume retailers Spirit, Halloween.com, and Party City do not all sell any formal Jeffrey Dahmer costumes.
Dahmer murdered 17 people, was convicted of 16 murders and sentenced to life in prison in 1992. He was beaten to death behind bars.
The 2022 Netflix series based on Dahmer has come under fire for being sympathetic to Dahmer, who has exploited gay men and men of color.
