Outrageous Halloween Costumes: Assassinated President John F.Kennedy

Here's a strong contender for one of the most outrageous Halloween costumes of all time. A young woman I know attended a Halloween party Friday evening with this assassinated President John F. Kennedy costume. Besides being super offensive and outlandish, the costume isn't exactly historically accurate either. On November 22, 1963 the president suffered two wounds, the first was a neck wound which would have been survivable, but the second and devastating wound was to the back of the head which blew out pieces of the presidents skull and brain matter onto the first lady and the Lincoln limousine. But, then again Halloween costumes aren't exactly a History Channel lesson. Some costumes are only meant to shock. This one sure did the job.
