Spooky independence: Puigdemont costume a Halloween hit in Spain

A costume depicting former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont turned out to be the hit of this year’s Halloween, as Alicante’s House of Costume (Casa del Disraz) ran out of stock in the Spanish town of Ibi, Tuesday. The costume consists of a black wig imitating the hair of the former Catalan leader, a pair of spectacles, a black tie and a jacket, adorned by a badge in colours of the Estelada flag, which is typically worn by Catalan pro-independence supporters. The costume is available to purchase for €39 ($45).
