In past years, Bianchi’s store has sold Monica Lewinsky, Princess Diana after the car crash and Chilean miners trapped underground.

This year, the Ebola virus that killed 4, 000 people in west Africa is the favorite among pre-Halloween shoppers.

“If you wanna scare the hell out of people this #Halloween just dress up as #Ebola, ” @samkalidi tweeted.

Photos on Twitter are showing costumes based on Ebola workers in full-body protective suits.

“Im gonna be #Ebola for #halloween this year cuz thats whats hip now, ” @Killa_tay_tay Tweeted.

Bianchi expects most Ebola costumes would be homemade. He is not aware of any manufacturer offering them.

“There are certain things – you just don’t go there, ” he said.

Some are contemplating costumes based on the Islamic State armies, also known as ISIS. Some are vehemently opposed, like @sandykaren, who Teweeted: “Note to idiots: don’t dress up as #ISIS for #Halloween unless you want a realistic bullet wound as part of your costume.”

Yes, that’s pretty vehement…
