The leader of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzman, is still on the run after he escaped from a high security prison in Altiplano outside Mexico City in July. He had managed to drill out of what is supposed to be Mexico's most secure prison.
Now Mexican authorities claim that Guzman, who the US Treasury regards as the world's most dangerous drug lord, have been injured in the face and leg when police tried to arrest him.
A Mexican company has seen the opportunity to earn money by making Halloween costumes of the notorious drug lord. Guzman is accused of having killed thousands of people as head of the Sinaloa Cartel.
- The El Chapo costume is going to scare the hell out of people, said Diego Esponda, director of Grupo Rev, producing a variety of costumes ranging from well-known politicians to scary masks.
According to the Washington Post, he said that the government deserves to be criticized after Guzman escaped from prison.
- It's fun for us to criticize our government after they arrested "El Chapo," only to let him escape a few months later, said Esponda.
Currently, the company has sold 4,000 costumes, About 1,400 in the US and in Mexico. According Esponda, the costumes have also have been sold to customers in Denmark and France.
Esponda hopes that the costume, marked with 3578 - AJ, the prisoner number of Guzman, continues to be a great success.
Halloween is 31 October.
