Ice Bucket Challenge Becomes a Halloween Costume

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The ice bucket challenge might have finally reached its tipping point.

The viral trend to raise awareness for ALS by dumping frigid water on your head has become a Halloween costume.

For $39.99, you'll get what looks like a shower curtain attached to an upside-down, blue bucket and an empty ice cube tray.

"We've received lots of interest in this, but it's still a work in progress," said a spokesperson from brandsonSale, the online retailer that introduced the costume on Friday.

The ice bucket challenge, in which people nominate each other to douse themselves in ice-cold water or else donate $100 to an ALS charity, has blown up in recent weeks. Even professional athletes and celebrities are in on the action –- LeBron James, Oprah Winfrey and Taylor Swift have all completed the challenge.
