Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Some people come up with amazing costumes. Many people use makeup to draw out injuries or other wounds. It can be a zombie bite or anything you want.
Walmart has a new kit for a particular kind of wound. They are selling a kit to create fake wounds to look like razor blade cuts.
I get wanting a scary costume, but trivialising self-harm is very dangerous. It is a serious mental health issue that should be treated as such. I think they meant for this to be used in a zombie costume, but it's still not cool.
Every year, one in five women and one in seven men engage in self-harm. It is associated with many mental disorders including eating disorders and depression. It can be very difficult to stop, and the psychological pain they are experiencing may be even worse.
This is the picture shown with the kit:
