You might be aware that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is prone to, well, blowing up without warning. But just because the smartphone is under a massive recall doesn’t mean you can’t channel its spirit for the Halloween season.

Enter UNIQFIND’s “Explo-Sung” skin for the Apple (AAPL) iPhone. The product, which is available for various iPhone 5, 6, and 7 models, emulates the charred corpses of dearly departed Galaxy Notes.


“Here at UNIQFIND, we’ve come up with a merciless way to dress-up your iPhone this Halloween – as a burnt device!” reads the product description, adding that it’s the online retailer’s “hottest skin yet.”

You can nab the Explo-Sung at $24.99 for just the skin and $34.99 for a skin/case combo.

This isn’t the first Halloween twist on the Galaxy Note 7, which have been catching fire since the device’s release in August. (The incidents have forced Samsung to suspend production of the flagship smartphone and grapple with its biggest recall crisis ever.)

One Imgur user recently posted a video of his full-scale exploding Galaxy Note 7 Halloween costume, complete with billowing smoke.
