Two of the hottest Halloween costumes in Mexico this year are the country's most wanted man — and its most hated.

Costume maker Caretas REV says prison jumpers and latex masks of the mustachioed, twice-escaped drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman are selling like hotcakes.

Caretas has produced more than 2,600 of the masks this month, many of them for export to the U.S. and Canada.

Another popular getup is Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The real estate mogul and reality TV star angered many south of the border when he denigrated Mexican immigrants as criminals, drug traffickers and "rapists."

The mask captures Trump with mouth agape and caricatures his signature blond hairdo.

Caretas CEO Diego Esponda said Thursday that Trump is Mexico's "most hated person right now."
