Halloween 2 different police costumes for women.

Halloween is full of zombies out there, but there is also a lot of police out there. Sometimes you don’t know if some of them are real police or are Halloween costumes, I’m pretty certain these are costumes, especially if a police officer is turning into a zombie!
