The Daily Mail may have just uncovered the world’s most expensive Halloween costume: Behold the “Human Slinky,” which you can buy right now on eBay … provided you have $1 million. But hey, at least the shipping is free! The costume, apparently made famous in some circles by a performer named Veniamin, has, according to the eBay listing, appeared on TV shows including the Late Show With David Letterman, The View, and America’s Got Talent.

Why might you be willing to pay so much? Because the "one size fits most" costume also comes with “five years permission to perform this act on stage around the world,” the listing explains, or you can just wear it to "Halloween and private parties" for the rest of your life. And if you feel guilty putting out so much money for a costume, comfort yourself with the knowledge that 10% of the purchase price will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
